Taking finasteride every other day ?

Finasteride has a long half life, so taking it EOD works well, even taking it M,W,F works.

Dunno if this is relevant or not but I did 6 months on generic Finasteride for the 1st time 1mg ED and found I was suffering from low libido and mood swings but didn’t kinda realise until I stopped for a month when I had my HT. , thought it just might be down to work , stress etc. Obviously I was eager to get back on meds after the HT so went from generic Finasteride to branded Propecia taking 0.5mg MWF I’m not 100% sure that the dosage I’m taking is enough but from research at least I’m getting some meds inside me. I find it to be a little mixed but far better than the 6 months on generic, most days I’m perfectly fine then other days I’m thinking where’s my dick gone and feeling down in the dumps (pissed off) I think the EOD seems to work for me at the moment, obviously I’d prefer not to be on it at all, but wouldn’t we all.

Why did you stop finasteride for the HT? Stopping minoxidil makes sense because it expands your blood vessels and can cause excessive bleeding during the surgery. I never stopped finasteride for a procedure and the doc knew I was taking it.

In fairness I ran out a few days before my HT and with all the medication I was given after my procedure to take I just never got around to ordering more. Before I knew it a few weeks had passed and like I said I did notice a change in myself.

I have been cutting Proscar for years and been taking it every other day for years with long term efficiency.

I did not have sides...I know it has a long shelf life and why take it daily if I do not need to.

If you cut a 5mg Proscar tablet, the average dose comes out higher than .5
