    Maybe? Bottom line: fin is the most effective. If you're really worried about hair loss, you really need to consider fin.

    I'm doing the inverse of what you're suggesting. Keto shampoo irritated my scalp, made my hair look like shit, and gave me dandruff. I'd rather be bald than apply minox even once-a-day, let alone the recommended twice-a-day.

    Finasteride - I wake up, pop a pill with my breakfast alongside a multi-vitamin and a considerable amount of water, and move on with my day. I keep a couple in my bookbag in case I ever forget, but at 1 month in it's still one of the first things I think of upon waking.

    .
    Minoxidil is actually very easy to apply if you use the foam. I only do it once a day (at night) and have had excellent results. As I said, each person needs to weigh up the risks/benefits based on their own situation; there's no one size fits all.

    Are there are types of tests that can be done by a doctor to determine as to whether one would suffer from erectile dysfunction as a result of using propecia? Also, if one does get erectile dysfunction through the use of propecia, are there any treatments or items (e.g. Viagra) that can reverse the sexual effects potentially caused by propecia?

    I was really into the concept of getting each of the big 3, but some of these reports of making me scared as **** to go near the stuff.

    Propecia can cause a range of sexual health problems, not limited to problems with erections. Viagra works by increasing blood flow to the penis - it doesn't interact with hormones in the way Propecia does, so I wouldn't assume you can counter the effects of one with the other.

    You could go to the doctor to get a blood test for baseline information about DHT and testosterone. If you did suffer sides, at least then it's something to refer to afterwards. To my knowledge though nobody has figured out an "identifier" in terms of figuring out what predisposes some men to suffer sides while others don't.

    Ok. Has anybody here actually suffered from sexual side effects using propecia? Also, the stats usually indicate that 2% of users suffer from sexual side effects through use of the product. However, somebody who posted a visitor message on my profile informed me that it can be as high as 30% of users, which is just downright scary.

    Fair enough.

    Even if it's easy to apply, I never leave myself time for things like that. Also, I can imagine going and staying at a girl's house or going out drinking and not being able to apply it. I just can't commit to anything besides a pill.

    Id steer clear as it does cause sides, it's just most males kid themselves about the severity.
    Also when you stop the symptoms don't necessarily go away and can be there to stay.
    It's not just your penis that's affected either...
    My advice is to try having a number one buzz cut at the start of a holiday (away from people you know a lot), and try to get used to the look, before going to a permenant bone head. You'll soon get used to it, as will others.

    Re your question has anyone else suffered sides the answer is yes. Leading endocrinologists are waking up to this issue.

    Let's face it, if it was so remote a chance do you think Merck would re label their warnings?

    Steer clear.
