Finasteride does not target DHT either, people have a strange misconception about how Finasteride actually works and state that it targets DHT.
Saw Palmettos method of working to help prevent/regrow is *exactly* the same as Finasteride. However it is not a man-made chemical and thus a persons body can react differently.
It is one of the most common permanent side effects, it's called prostatitis.
I suffer from prostatitis after dropping propecia. The change in size of my prostate from small and back to big again caused it be inflamed non-stop. I wake up at least 2 times at night and I always feel like peeing.
There is a section on propeciahelp especially for this issue, it's called prostatitis.
BPH is not equal to prostatitis.
I'm ****ed for life with propecia I wish I had never touched the stuff.
The problem is when you drop it, that's when you're ****ed.
