    Thanks. I was on edge for years about taking this drug but finally decided I may regret it if i don't when I saw myself gradually thinning. I don't plan to use this for very long, just until a cure comes out for hair loss. So far side effects are very mild.

    hey man my hairline's starting to receed but i caught early thanks to somebody pointing all the hair i left in the shower...

    so i've decided to take the same stuff as you even ordering from the same company...i have question when (if) you want to wanna to have sex/masturbate/watch porn...do you easily get an erection as before? is it more difficult? what has changed?

    I don't give a fudge about morning erections just wanna get an erection when Im supposed to...you know.

    Side effects are more noticable. Erections are definately not as strong. It's not VERY bad but definately noticable.

    It's concerning me that I'm getting it at this stage, almost 5 months after starting it. Considering quitting it. Hair is thicker.

    Your experience sounds similar to mine. Right around the 5 month mark, once my hair started to become noticeably better, is when side effects became prevalent. In my case it was harder and harder for me to achieve an erection. I played around by halving the dosage (tried twice for 1/4 dose) for the next and sixth month but that still didn't seem to stave off the sides. After thinking about it for a while I finally decided to quit finasteride.

    It is very disappointing but I think you need to evaluate how you feel now and how you felt before starting fin and if things seem too much worse now quitting may be for the best.

    Thanks for your input. Are you back to normal after stopping fin? Did you quit in the 6th month?

    Sorry about the late reply. I didnt see it. The answer is Yes and no. I dont get horny as easy but when erect it's almost as before (i'd say 90% of what it was)

    A cure will come out i believe in 5 years but i think the cost will be enourmous and probably the effectiveness will depend on cost....since u will be able to grow few hairs...so all celebrities should have a nice hair by then.

    Hurts, sorry to hear about the side effects, Idk what to say really...don't want to mess with your body...do some research and decide whats best for you.

    Good luck man, hope everything works out for u.
