Question: Can I take Saw Palmetto and Propecia whilst having my PSA level monitored?

Name: Raymond Letters 

Question: It is two years since I had radiation for prostate cancer. I attend hospital for a PSA check every 3 months but take no medication. Can I take Propecia and Saw Palmetto together?

Answer: Propecia is not recommended if your PSA level is being monitored. It is a product that contraindicates the PSA check due to the possibility of masking the results. Regarding Saw Palmetto; even though it is herbal it can still affect the results of the PSA test.  This matter is something that you should discuss with your consultant.
