Hi,

Who here has used Finasteride and what effects did you have?

I have been having a receding hairline and having some hair loss prior to TRT (am only 27 years old) and it's continuing.

I've used topical lotions etc with a bit of improvement but not much.

I am a little scared of some of the horror stories out there from it but thought I would see who is on it nowadays and how you find Finasteride.

Thanks

Used finasteride and am now on dutasteride. No issues with either.

I used finasteride 1mg for 7 years. I had the impression of not having any issue or side effect until last year when I started to have some voiding frequency issue (probably unrelated to finasteride) and after all exams and because the issue couldn’t be fixed I tried many things myself including stopping finasteride which normally is supposed to help with prostate related voiding issues. after few weeks of stopping finasteride I realized that I had side effects happening so slowly during these 7 years that I didn’t notice. Since I stopped my hard is harder than before, better libido, bigger semen volume, improved orgasm, better energy, better muscle tone. And my voiding issues improved (don’t know if this one is related to finasteride discontinuation)

A lot of people have very negative experiences on finasteride, and some don't. I think it's better than dutasteride as it leaves you still with some DHT which you really need to feel good and keep your libido up, etc.

I actually found some topical finasteride 0.1% which you might be interested in trying instead of the oral version. It the amount is low enough to not effect you systematically but should be enough to cover the hairline and work on the DHT receptors specifically in the scalp. Send me a PM and I'll shoot you the name of the pharm where you can order it if you're interested.

You might want to consider a break from it. For me the onset of the side effects was so slow that it was hard to notice and it became as normal to me until when I stopped it. Are you experience any possible related side effect?
