View Full Version : Alternatives to finasteride 2014

I've been on finasteride for 6 years and it has been great for my hair. No loss and some regrowth in this time. No sides - libido has been good. One thing that has crept up on me is depression/moods wings/negative thoughts and now it is to a point where I need to change something.

I know what you are thinking- maybe it's not the finasteride causing it. And you may be right but I can't risk spending my life in this state if it just comes down to this pill causing it.

So my question to you is are there any alternatives in this day and age which might be appropriate for me? There is so much info out there on other alternatives such as ru, saw palmetto and equol but for every person who says they work there are others countering it.

Propecia is still the best and only thing out there. Your taking just as much or more risk trying some experimental chemical like RU. Probably still have a few more years with propecia before its replaced for good

Thanks for the responses. Even though it's not a very uplifting answer it's good to have an answer rather than the swarms of ineffective treatment options all over the internet. Fin or bust it is.

Yeah its a shame there isnt a better answer yet, but there are things in the works so there is still realistically hope for something better in a few years
