    Default Hello! How can/should Finasteride side effects be mitigated?

    Hello all,
    First off, I wanted to say hello as I have been reading these forums for a bit now but have never registered, and I should probably be posting here from now on
    I am 21 years old and have felt myself losing my hair for quite some time now. Even though it hadnít progressed too far, I wanted to get on Finasteride as soon as possible to keep as much hair as I could. I went to my dermatologist and was prescribed 1mg Finasteride daily. Iíve been on Finasteride now for about 5-6 months and have noticed slight improvements but am also dealing with some pretty bad dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis) so Iím trusting the process and waiting it out to see full effects. However, I have noticed a pretty significant dip in my libido and much less semen in my ejaculation, even decreased sensitivity upon orgasm. This worries me, and I know if it continues to be as bad as it is now then there is practically no point of continuing the medication. My question is, can I take steps to try and mitigate the side effects? I did read research studies on how on certain individuals seemed to have lessened side effects after a certain amount of time on the medication. Iíve also read up on a bunch of the OTC supplements that I could take to try and help, but perhaps it would be wisest to go straight to a doctor? Does anybody have experience with this sort of situation? I am going to go to my doctor and see if there is anything that can be done as I would really like to stay on the medication.

    Thank you and Iím excited to meet you all!
