I am in line to get a ht a couple months down the road, in May. I am very hesitant to go on medication such as Propecia. I have read alot that many people get side effects. Would you be able to tell me what happened when you took propecia. Did the effects go away after a couple of months? How is the avocor working for you?

Personally, for me, I would rather keep getting hts rather than take propecia and go impotent.

The negative side effects of Finasteride are quite rare, I do not think we have any members here who have any negative side effects. I would say the first thing is to take Finasteride, you'll stabilize your hairloss and maybe regrow some as many of us, with no downside.

Avocor and the rest are just snake oils, do not waste your money on them.

Mopar and MrClean you have found the best community here, so take advantage of it, you have many questions and all the answers are here, take your time, read and learn from the forum posts and the learning center website.

First go to:

http://www.hairlosslearningcenter.org/

that's the multimedia site

 

Then come back here to post your questions once you get the basics.

We are here to help you, that's what we do.

Is it even possible to notice ANY side effects after 2 days? Are you sure you're not so afraid of side effects that you're convincing yourself you have them when you really don't (hipochondria, I believe, is the term here).

I agree with YoungGuy- 2 days is pretty quick to notice any problems and the symptoms may be self-induced. Give it a little time and see how it goes.

 

Taking Propecia or using Minoxidil are really both lifetime commitments if they help you. You'll have to keep using them to get any benefit they provide and you'll lose any hair maintain because of them if you stop use.

 

Any side effects will go away if you stop taking Propecia. No, I do not believe it will cause infertility but check with the Doc who prescribed it to be sure.
