Hi,

If you are using it for 2 years without any side effect, then most of the long term side effects like abnormal ejaculation, periapism, blurred vision, low BP may also be watched and if these persist or become worse, then you are advised to see your doctor.

Otherwise, you can safely take this drug for a long time. Also its efficacy on prostate enlargement is present at least for 6 years. It is usually safe and well tolerated on a long term treatment. However, whenever you stop this drug, do not do it abruptly. You may stop it under guidance of your doctor, as it will depend on your post-void urine volume, PSA, side effects and tolerability.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
