    No morning erections, though erections still very much present when aroused.

    Urine passage is slightly "tighter", cant think of a word to use for it.

    I seem to be tired even after a good amount of sleep, but I doubt this has anything to do with fin.

    Mentally all seems fine (thank god)

    It has been over 5 weeks now. I can say there has been a lot more shedding than there used to be pre-finasteride.

    No sides thus far, although the area beneath my testicles seem to throb sometimes. No pain or whatever, it's just a twitching sensation. Should I be worried?

    I've been on it for 3 weeks now, no sides as of yet. Seen a lot more shedding than before I started.

    Keep us updated on your shedding phase, I'm hoping mine would completely stop soon.

    I am slightly worried but sexual function is 95% as before. I hope it stays that way.



    I know it takes many months for finasteride to regrow hair, but does anybody know if finasteride "maintains" from the first pill?

    I wonder the same. Does it take 8 months before it actually halts or slows hair loss?

    I've been taking it for 8 months now and I think it's slowed my hairloss but I really don't know. Results on the drug are very subtle, unlike Regaine.

    Experienced some side effects. At the start I noticed erections weren't as strong as before but that gradually corrected itself after 4 weeks. A few days ago i took a pill on one of my "off" days (I forgot if I had already took one or not) and just last night experienced a side effect where my ejaculation was WEAK.

    - Thankfully erection is still strong though, it's just, and I try to be as vague as possible when i say this, the 'source of life' fluid does not shoot far anymore, not even close to before... more like drips.
