I gotta say...the fact that Willy hasn’t done anything regarding his baldness as far as I’ve read, is interesting, I mean he has the money and resources to go to the best Dr and improve his appearance but it seeems like he doesn’t give a flying fuck, even tho he is mercilessly mocked by the UK media and especially his also-balding bro...is somewhat ballsy of him.

Good on him, all the money in the world and he’s happy bald, that’s my man. Unlike the rest of us....................

Not to keeping going back and forth, but it would be a very interesting question to put forth to the 34,489 registered members of this forum. I’m a data driven guy. Obviously we wouldn’t get 100% participation in the poll but I’d like to see in a poll something along the lines of:

In your opinion, have you experienced side effects from finasteride?

a) yes

b) no

c) have not tried finasteride

 

Would love to see those results 

Just a friendly discussion, not a back and forth :)

 

I agree, it would be really interesting to conduct a survey on this site. I am a data driven guy as well, which is why I went on fin with the expectation I would not experience side effects.

 

don’t get me wrong,  I suspect it’s still a minority of patients that experience SEs, but I also suspect the % is a bit higher than the minuscule amount suggested by the existing literature.

I tried to create this poll two days ago since I have the same question but in the posting section it makes me add a post also alongwith a poll. 

Melvin - Can you create a standalone poll in the ques/ans forum?

Great idea regarding the poll. This thread has obviously stirred reactions in several people and there seems a genuine split on support or not with Finasteride. I will head over and cast my vote after this post.

I agree with several ideas posted, and disagree with many more.

I have personally taken Finasteride for over 10 years and can genuinely say that I don't FEEL that I have ever experienced any side effects. But can I be sure, NO. Sexual side effects? No. Being over tired, unmotivated? On the odd occasion I feel this could put it down to stress at work, family life, poor food and exercise choices. 

Some guys who have experienced heavy side effects are obviously and quite rightly so, very anti Finasteride, I imagine I would be too. And therefore, due to their bitterness, they need to try and warn everybody regarding their experience. But that is exactly what it is, THEIR experience. Not yours, and not mine. 

When people say that it is impossible to not experience side effects for several years and then suddenly to begin experiencing effects as nonsense. I believe that to be quite naive. As we get older and our mind and bodies as well as our lives change, which includes weight, metabolism, stress levels, sleep levels, happiness, activity levels, cell degeneration slows etc.. to think that the results and effects of Finasteride would stay the same throughout all of these bodily changes seems ludicrous to me. Every choice we make, everything we put into our mouths, into our body will have an effect. Whether that be a more extreme insulin response after eating certain food types, therefore generating different gene expression, our bodies will them digest and react differently to medication. 

Never before has a generation taken Finasteride every day  for 20+ years. Do we know what it may or may not be doing to our bodies over the long term? - NO. But that also applies to mobile phones, Wifi, standard western diet, constant antibiotics etc. The decision is ours to make.

Do I take Finasteride ?- Yes. Despite the fact that it affects my hormonal balance? - Yes. Does this concern me as a health conscience individual? - Yes. 

So why do I take it? The same reason as everybody else. Hairloss has had such a huge impact on my life, and anything negative in my life, I try to reduce, control, stop. Does Finasteride help?- I think so. Am I making the right decision - Who knows?

We are all trying and making the best decisions that we can, right?

Just had my 2nd HT. Was on Finasteride and minoxidil for first HT because of doctor's prescription however my 2nd HT I decided not to take any since I don't really have active balding and miniaturized hair and doctor didn't actively insist for me to take it. Understand it should only be taken if you have active balding or to prevent shock loss. So if you are confident of your hair, think you can most probably skip it which I did.

Just wanted to give a heads up now that it's been a couple of weeks since I stopped taking Fin: 

Not only my libido, firmness of erections and quality of orgasms keeps going up and up (hard to say if it's yet back to 100% but it's getting there) but also my mood and energy is a lot higher. Overall I'm very happy with my choice.

If you're on the fence about it, I recommend at least trying to cease the treatment for a bit and see how you feel. And then decide if it's worth it coming back or not.
