    Why do you suppose that Fin does in fact work for most people who take it? Does the medical community simply not have a full understanding of its' mechanisms, and taking it is basically a gamble?

    Can there be good and bad candidates for the drug? I mean, would blood tests or hormone tests give a good indication of how Fin may affect a person? If I had to guess, I'd imagine that there is some correlation between a persons original hormone levels before they went on Fin, and what kind of affect it ended up having on their body.

    Does easing your way into a Fin regimine make a difference? For example, taking half the reccomended dose every other day.

    I just recently starting researching about the drug, and I'm glad there are places online where people can bounce ideas off each other and also provide links to certain studies and scientific evidence.

    Here are some of my random theories based on no evidence:
    1) Drastic changes in the bodies hormone levels could be causing some of the long term issues in the body, making certain receptors over sensitive or unresponsive
    2) I noticed from some of the videos I've seen of men who had serious problems from propecia, a lot of them weren't exactly the most masculine of men. I THINK a lot of bald guys tend to be fairly masculine (more muscular, deeper voice, hairy ect.), and maybe Fin does not effect them as much as it does for a less masculine guy who takes it.

    Thanks for reading, and I hope you guys can help me out here, I'm a noob with this shit!
    Hi Dan, given that a lot of individuals who take propecia experience only moderate side effects whilst on the drug, the most profound sides (the crash) occur AFTER the drug is discontinued. So the issue is in essence, the rejection, or some form of biological complication with the reintroduction of normalized levels of DHT within the body, that's the essence of the problem. It's amazing to have these forums as a resource, but as Maradona stated above, the best information and the most knowledgable people on this matter can be found on "propeciahelp". Namely the members known as "awor" and "mew".

    As of yet, there is no method of reversing PFS, no compound, hormone or chemical has been shown to reverse the side effects indefinately, people have shown signs of improvement and complete recovery only to have their systems crash a week later, this is the issue here, it's almost like trying to start an engine [that wont start]. Only medical science and research can resolve this, only they can give us answers, unfortunately, I dont think Merck with all their power and money give a shit.

    Broccoli is a great way to bring down estradiol, but the amount required is quite substantial. Combining your intake with cauliflower will help, natural methods are always better than the dodgy chemical routes, which is why saw palmetto is probably a far better route than chemical finasteride.

    @Maradona I think after a period of abstinence (no sex, no masturbation, no porn - nothing) that lasts 100 days your brain "reboots" a lot of the sexual neurotransmitters, but it does require you to abstain for 100 days completely which is a task in itself.

    I usually juice broccoli (I know) and drink it that way, I find I need loads of broccoli to get enough out of it.

    Thanks for the response UK. I signed up at propeciahelp and asked some of my questions there. I've been losing my hair (at a pretty fast rate) for 6 or so months. It's gotten to the point where I need to take some sort of action. I'm just trying to stay calm and make an informed decision at this point. It's a balancing act in my mind right now between the possible effects propecia can have on my health, and the prospect of slowing down or stopping my hair loss for 5 or how ever many years while having minimal side effect. I'd be really curious to know how men who have been on Fin for a really long time then discontinued it reacted; like percentages of them who had bad reactions.

    I would try RU first. Propecia would be my last option.

    I fukin wish somebody had told me but here I am with permanent sides and balding faster due to fin.

    You need to boil it for at least 5 mins to deactivate some of the enzymes..

    Do you have prostate problems or just precautionary?

    It's hard to gauge how many people have had sides, there are probably thousands of people out there who are having sides but are not attributing it to the drug, there are probably thousands of elderly people who have sexual sides but the doctor just puts it down to low TEST due to age.
