Are there any side effects if males take high doses of saw palmetto?

Saw Palmetto all but stopped the hot flashes I was having. The flashes were quite bothersome for several months, but not super-severe. However, saw palmetto curbed those flashes and completely stopped the night sweats. Oh, and it kick started my libido. I love saw palmetto!

Its been good for my bladder, I began taking it so that I could sleep more than 6 hours without needing to pee.

I've been taking 3 160 mg soft gels of saw palmetto and 2000 mg of pumpkin seed oil per day for 6 months. Now I find that getting up at night have been reduced from 3 times a night to 1. My bladder empties more completely and I'm just generally more comfortable.

Yes..I had pain for weeks during my last prostate episode (during chemo) and after a few day of 2 tablets a day no pain and no getting up every 3 hours to go to the bathroom. I sleep 5 to 6 hours now and no pain.

There are so many people out there lying saying this doesn't work.I had issues on the urination tip.Because I was experiencing an enlarged prostate it helped me the first day and I plan on taking it as long s it helps me .

Saw Palmetto is great! My husband has taken one 160 mg. supplement a day for a few years for prostate issues and only has to get up to pee once each night. I've experienced symptoms of hormonal imbalance all my adult life such as: oily skin, acne, hair loss, possibly bone loss and in the last year hot flashes and night sweats. After some research I decided to try taking the same pills my husband takes for my hair loss. It's only been two weeks, but I've already noticed my skin is less oily, my acne has improved, the hot flashes are nearly gone, and my libido seems to be returning. Hair takes more time to tell. I take two 160 mg. pills of saw palmetto (berry) oil extract a day.

I have hot flashes all night long, they keep me awake, last for almost 1-2 minutes at a time. Sure hope this stuff works for me, worth the try, can't stand sweating so much especially during these hot humid summer days.
