the bandwagon will stop one day (probably soon) and the facts will come out. i personally think there is enough evidence already to say that there is no bandwagon anymore (ie its no longer opinion). the question is, when the bandwagon stops, do you want to be the one who finds out that in fact this medicine causes side effects in a large minority of men (?30%?), most of whom were in denial because they were so desperate to keep their hair, and that it is even possible that some of these side effects may persist for a very long time? and that anybody who was ever exposed to finasteride may be at risk in the future for early onset of ED?
