    Default Important health question about anti-DHTs (fin-dutas)

    I would like to inquire about a health risk that may or may not be associated with use of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors: VTEs (venous thrombosis events). In some studies, oral anti androgens are associated with an increase in risk of VTEs (deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli). Since I have no access to the actual papers I am not sure which anti androgens were studied but I am guessing they are flutamide, bicalutamide and nilutamide since those are used in prostate cancer patients and the studies were done on prostate cancer patients indeed.
    Now some resources list 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors as anti androgens as well so I am bit worried as a dutasteride user.
    I am wondering if anyone on the forum had a VTE while on finasteridr or dutasteride (except myself because I already had one some months ago). Although not comfirmed by a second test (which is the standart procedure) my VTE was probably due to APS. I am indefinetely on anticoagulants which should work fine for preveting a second event but I was wondering if using dutasteride puts me in further risk.
    I would be glad if anyone has any info about 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors and VTE (please do not reply with “ask your doctor”, I already have. My pulmonologists thinks it should be fine and my hematologist thinks I should refrain from using it without giving any supportive scientific evidence).
