    Thumbs up

    fwiw I find Chrisis has a fairly balanced view on finasteride all things considered even though just a few months ago it seeemed more like borderline scaremongering

    I'm also glad he has changed his avatar because his old one was freaking me out

    Hello OP, I've peen taking propecia for 13 months now, I had side effect for the first 3 months but after that I'm back to normal. I actually think I'm a lot hornier, and my penis grew about an inch bigger.(not Joking)

    You are on every finasteride thread possible, saying the same thing. You need to cool down.
    I wonder why propecia had to have such BS potential sides to begin with.

    Would have been better if the sides were something more minor - headache or some shit.

    Thanks for your input ladies and gents. I think I'll go ahead with the gradual increase in dosage shortly after I get my blood tests done.

    It's because it works by interfering with the male hormonal system, which is responsible for sexual health.

    it just goes to show how useless of a treatment finerstride is.

    Before joining this forum, I knew several guys who are taking Finasteride and none of them have experienced the possible negative side effects. Most of those guys are taking the 5mg dose for their prostate but they all also have moderate male pattern hair loss (NW3, NW4 & NW5) or worse.

    Since joining this forum I have read many post from younger guys who have mild male pattern hair loss (NW2) and I observed that these folks complain about side effects more than the NW3's NW4's or NW5's. There are also many posts from young guys who do not have MPB but want to stop, prevent and reverse their adult mature male hair lines. These are the guys who complain about side effects the most.

    Unfortunately at this time I do need to point out that the words some, most and all do not mean the same thing. I need to do this because there are some readers here who insist on using these words interchangeably as if they do mean the same thing, especially when they are reading posts that I have written.

    Anyways, to get back on subject. Another poster pointed this observation out so I started paying more attention to it. I think that it is reasonably safe to theorize that the less a male needs this medication, the more likely he is to experience the possible negative side effects. The more posts I read and the more I learn about the posters themselves, the more this seems to be the case. I feel this observation is significant enough to consider it as a possible explanation for the dramatic rise in complaints about Finasteride.

    Please note that I cannot take credit for this observation. Another member made it and I just confirmed it through my own observations. That other member did not want me to say who he is.
