    Default Risk of Continuing Finasteride After Side Effects?

    I have been taking finasteride for the past 3 years and have found it good for maintaining my hair. I have, however, experienced side effects. I have a greatly reduced sex drive and no longer get erections unless stimulated physically.

    My curiosity lies in whether or not I am doing damage to my body by continuing use after side effects. I am too afraid to stop taking the drug because I don't want to lose my hair, but I also don't want to cause excessive damage to my body.

    Is there any difference in regards to hormonal profiles/receptor activity from taking the drug for 10 days vs. 10 months vs. 10 years or is it all the same as soon as you cease the inhibition of DHT?
