What is the point of taking fin to maintain your hair....just to get a girl...then have a broken penis/sexual disfunction?
Just doesn't seem worth it to me. Many will scream "oh he's just a fear mongerer" Well, tell that to the TENS OF THOUSANDS of victims and law firms with multi MILLION dollar law suits. Some people are so easily persuaded and advertised to by big pharma...haha they believe whatever the company says about the safety of a drug is true.
Yet there's a couple million who have no problems at all that use it.
that's why it's fear mongering, that 'ten thousand' (which is an arguable number unless provided a link to back it up) is a small minority. Propecia is used by tonnes of people, thet people that have these massive permanent 'broken penis' are quite rare, I can count on a single hand the people that are or did experience what they think is permanent dysfunction while using the stuff.
as someone else said above, ease into it, it's a great way to see if you'll have problems, as 0.2-0.5 gives you alot of the benefit, with less chance of a problem. Because honestly, there are alot of benefits to finasteride, including holding onto the hair you have(which so far, I've actually gotten minor improvement from it after 4 months.)
