    The majority of people can expect propecia to work for a long time.

    Brand propecia vs generic, efficacy
    Wash hair use topical anti androgens
    Ketaconazole shampoo
    Diet
    Sleep
    Stress
    Hair oils

    These all play a factor on the infatuation of your hormones, keep it all balanced.

    Well 6% is higher than Merck said but the only problem I see is that there isnt a control group, its just a bunch of guys who took propecia. How do they know if all these side effects were caused by propecia and not from other reasons? I think they subtract the control group from the test group to get the true side effect rates. from many of the studies I looked at the placebo groups usually had 3 or 4% sexual side effect rates, which is in line with what Merck claims. that rules out any psychological side effects.

    But even in any group of guys 6% seems low. Thats combined for all of the side effects also? Maybe 4% had testicle ache, 1% erectile problems, 1% libido problems? Maybe some had headaches or runny noses? If they report anything do they consider that a side effect?
    That's the problem with these studies. Either they're not conducted very thoroughly or the reporting is done poorly. Too much trust is placed in them when we don't really know how accurate they are. Even if a study has a small error the methodology or accuracy of interpretation, it can translate to gross mistakes in the conclusions about likelihood of side effects.

    I completely agree with you, the problem with research is a very important problem, especially for students. I can recommend a service PapersOwl where you can edit your research papers, then you can check the research papers for errors, as for me it is very important.

    It bothers me that so many men in the Propecia group dropped out. They started with over 500 but nearly half had quit five years later. To me that says either that they had side effects, or that the treatment was ineffective. If taking finasteride was working for them why'd they quit?
