    Default Finasteride and Alcohol Use

    Iím waiting for my order of finpecia to arrive in the mail, and Iím thinking about my future. Iím twenty-three and like to go out every once in a while. I understand that having a glass or two of wine with dinner isnít an issue while on finasteride, but letís say that once a month I drink ĺ of a bottle of whiskey with my friends and get blackout drunk. Would it be best to skip my dose that day because the interaction of fin and alcohol in the stomach/liver could be toxic, or is that a non-issue as well? For those of you who have more than two beers every so often, how do you deal with your dosage that day? Thanks for reading.

    I am not aware of relation between Finpecia & drinking alcohol. I take Finpecia everyday and drink whiskey very often.

    With that said, take Finpecia in the morning. I'm assuming that you start drinking whiskey in the evenings

    shouldn't be an issue unless you take together (then resorption of finasteride could be influenced)....anyway wouldn't go for finasteride in the first place anyway (side-effects trust me)

    I take 1.25mg fin right when I wake up (3.5 months in), and get drunk about once a week. Have not encountered any problems.
