different Finasteride brands. different side effects


Recommended Posts

hello all/

ive read what i can now on people on different dosage of this drug.. and also different if any side effects.

i was on the brand Proscar the 5mg ones split into 4... and not much if any side effects really..maybe my mood and anxiety bit higher than normal

 

i then ran out of Proscar

ordered the 1mg UK Finasteride as could not find the Proscar stuff online in UK.

started straight off on 1mg never thought nowt of it, but after chatting with a mate andd then reading ip it seemed it caused my depression anxiety worse and no libido

am i right these could be stronger pills the with ingredient than prsocar brand?

 

ive read quite alot people do 0.5mg 3 times a week which got me wondering if its enough as some say it stays in system few days so every other day or 3  times a week enough. and also at the does 0.5mg uk brand Finasteride

again i see most or alot do 0.5mg every day ie 7 days a week

 

cheers

I have known patients on Proscar and cutting it in to 4 or 5 parts with a pill cutter and no issues for years and then go to generic tablets and have sides, even if they claim to be 99.9 percent the same and even people in this field I have spoken to have had issues when changing, so I do believe it is a genuine problem for some. Maybe not many have issues but it is there none the less.

I thought I was reading one of my own posts...that's exactly what happened with me.

Propecia for about 6 years - no problem. Proscar for about 2 years - no problem. Aindeem 1mg finasteride for a year - big problems.

Sorry to hear that...

Have you considered topical fin? I'm looking into this fin/minox combo that you rub into your scalp once a day...no sides

Still in the research stage myself, but since I've not been able to 100% reverse the effects I want to try to get off the oral fin if possible.
