 1  Hair loss As a result of taking Propecia, I am infertile, cannot sustain an erection during sex, have atrophied testes ( (hypogonadism), a numb penis, no sex drive, muted orgasms, and suffer from incapacitating brain fog. I struggle to follow conversations, and I cannot remember anything. I often tell my wife, "I cannot think."Ě After seeing an Endocronlogist, I learned that I have very low testosterone, zero pregnenolone ( the "brain" neurosteroid/ hormone) and hypothyroidism, After seeing a urologist, I learned that Propecia deadened much of my penis. I also learned that I have almost no sperm left, and therefore I must go through IVF if my wife and I ever want to have a baby. I'm writing this review in the hopes that I can spare other men from ruining their lives by taking Propecia. Anyone considering taking this drug is playing he Russian roulette with their mind and body. Imagine what it likely feels like to be in the latter stages of dementia. Imagine how helpless and impotent you'll feel when you cannot sustain an erection with a woman. Imagine a life without a thinking brain. Imagine feeling hollowed out, unable to think. I'm warning you: Stay away from this drug. PS: I stopped taking Propecia 2 and 1/2 years ago. All of the aforementioned symptoms have only gotten worse since I stopped taking it. M 49 10 years

 1  enlarged prostate Started to grow man-boobs. They donít tell you that an uncommon side effect is that you may grow breasts. After three months taking Finasteride for an enlarged prostate, I noticed my chest seemed to be growing. Fortunately, that side effect reverses once you stop taking the drug. Personally, Iíd rather have my prostate roto-rootered or lose my hair than grow man-boobs. M 77 3 months

 1  Hair loss Penis shrinkage, testicle pain, depression, anxiety, severe insomnia, constant fatigue, irritability, tinnitus, watery semen, zero libido While I was on Propecia, I began to have trouble sleeping and gradually became more and more tired throughout the days I was on it. My semen became incredibly watery and I lost my sex drive completely. I decided the sides weren't worth it and discontinued use. Two days of ecstasy ensued where I felt incredible until I crashed. My penis permanently shrunk and I developed the same issues pushed to the max level along with new ones like severe depression, anxiety, and tinnitus. My penis has lost actual tissue and has no girth anymore and I have suicidal ideations every day. Please don't take this. M 33 3 weeks

 4  Hair loss At first five years, I didn't experience any side effects, just a few pain in the testicles. After that, in the last year, I felt many sides! Like erection disorders and so on, but I should say that in that previous year I had many other problems in my life like a lousy relationship with cheating and awful job situation and not healthy lifestyle lack of exercise and bad eating, etc. Then I stopped taking finasteride; then I could see that my problems like erection problems and foggy mind and all sides are going. After about five months of stopping taking finasteride, I fell more and more energetic. My erection problems have gone plus other sides like my hair . Now I can say If you don't have any other issue in your life and you can have a healthy lifestyle which cardio exercises are so so important in that plus you can have a released mind without bad thoughts, you can take finasteride without any sides, and then you have hair and other things... I'm also working on my mind, so before that you decide to stop taking the tablet for the rest of your life, VISIT A PSYCHOLOGIST! M 27 6 years

 1  Thinning hair/ hairloss After two weeks of taking the capsule, once daily, I started to feel really low mood, anhedonia, fatigue, avolition, dyspnoeic with mild physical activity, hypolibido, shrinkage of 'down below', decline in memory function, dry eyes and occasional visual disturbances. I do appreciate the reduction in dose than those the one used in clinical trials, but the side effects which I was dreading from the very beginning has come true for me. M 31 14 days

 1  Hair loss Hard time maintaining a worthy erection, liquid semen, low semen, numb penis and disinterested in sex/women. Depression, forgetfulness, loss of voice , anxiety and feeling weak and tired all the time. Feeling like an 80 year old man in a 24 year old body. Don't take this garbage look at all the other reviews, clearly way more than 2% get side effects. Propecia turns you into a beta male bitch like Kevin Mann. M 24 5 years

 1  Thinning hair Brain fog, anxiety, depression, a bit lower sex drive then usual I was taking finasteride 1.25 mg every other day, everything was going fine in the beginning. However 3 months in I started noticing increased brain fog and anxiety attacks that came out of nowhere. Nothing had changed in my life so the only logical explanation would be finasteride. A few days ago I recently stopped taking the drug and have experienced depression and anxiety along with uncontrollable thoughts at times. I believe I will be fine but I do not recommend this drug to anyone as the risks outweigh the benefits. M 25 100 days

 1  Hairloss Lowered sex-drive, hard time maintaining erection, difficulty having an orgasm, numb feeling in head of the penis I had heard some side-effects from Propecia, but didn't think too much about it. I had to give it a try. First weeks went fine, but for the last two weeks I started experiencing all the side-effects above. I hadnt even heard or read that you could get a numb feeling in your penis, or having a hard time having an orgasm. These were symptoms I felt before I knew about them. I took 3mg/w for 6 weeks, and today I decided that I cant take the risk of the sides getting worse. This drug may work great for some people, but it's not for me. M 28 6 weeks

 1  Hair loss depression. No sex drive. pain in my balls. I was very healthy before taking this awful medication. I was ripped strong and good looking. Why on earth would you take a drug with lowers for DHT. Its like lowering your water intake because you pee a lot then die from no water. Its insane. So many meds and dangerous. Always research everything before you take any poisons i a.p.s.fmean medications. M 37 5 weeks

 1  prevent receding hairline After taking it 5 days ago I felt tired and dizzy the next day for no apparent reason plus my libido was way down. Since I was aware of the side effects I stopped taking the drug and waited for the sides to go away. Right now it's 5 days after the day I took the single pill and my symptoms are massive: brain fog, dizziness, extreme motivation issues, ED, depression (including suicidal ideation). Honestly I'm kinda freaking out, that I might never be the person I used to be. Reuters figured out that the original finasteride studies were fraudulent (or at least there were inconsistencies in the incidence of side effects and their actual duration), so the metaanalysis you are gonna read about finasteride are heavily scewed and we dont necessarily know the real percentage of people experiencing side effects. Take that seriously, i didnt and paid for my arrogance by potentially destroying my life. M 21 1 days

 1  Hair Loss, Thinning at the crown Hard time getting an erection, Watery semen, Less semen when ejaculating, Weaker erections (like 70% the old length). I'm not a person from the PFS or PropeciaHelp places, I always thought those places were bullshit, and I don't engage with them, however, as someone who was excited to take contol of this issue, I am extremely depressed at the sides and the fact that I won't be able to take it and stop my hair loss. If you are considering taking it, please be careful, I am on month 2 after I stopped taking it and the sides are ever so slowly going away, however they take f*ing forever. M 21 1 days

 3  Crown thinning No side effects noticed Hello, I have been losing my hair since I was 19 and now I am 21. I have been on propecia for almost 8 months now. I still have a good amount of hair left and even when I started propecia I had a good set of hair. I was just experiencing the thinning and hairfall. However, my hair still falls out, everyday I see thin hairs falling out and sometimes some thick hairs. Some days I will have more hair fall out than others. I am literally browsing the internet trying to find someone who is having this issue as well. M 21 0 days

 2  Hair thinning Balls ache, no libido, trouble maintaining boner or even getting one, feels like I'm losing my voice and it's not as deep as before. Probably not worth it. I'm sure chicks would rather get boned than to drool over hair that wont do sh*t. Invest your money and efforts into something that'll rather build you than to break you literally. Praying I return to normal. M 27 38 days

 1  Hair loss I have PFS (Post-Finasteride Syndrome). I cannot sustain an erection during sex, suffer from genital anesthesia and/or numbness, have muted/blocked/pleasureless orgasms when I masturbate, and suffer from brain fog, memory loss, and thinking at times. I have low testosterone, extremely high FSH, and pituitary problems as a result of being on Propetia on and off for years. Iíve been off of Propecia for a year. Although Iíve had shock wave therapy to remove penile scar tissue and improve nerve damage and had testosterone replacement therapy, my sexual functioning and cognitive issues persist. Oh! And I became infertile on Propecia too. Fortunately, I had enough sperm left to have a baby with my wife via IVF. Stay away from this toxic and poisonous medication! It will potentially destroy your life. Please stay away from this drug! You can get stem cell therapy or a hair transplant to restore your hair, if doing so is important to you. Mess with your hormones, and youíre messing with your sexual life and your brain! M 48 0 years

PROPECIA  (FINASTERIDE):  Finasteride is used to shrink an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) in adult men. It may be used alone or taken in combination with other medications to reduce symptoms of BPH and may also reduce the need for surgery. Finasteride may improve symptoms of BPH and provide benefits such as decreased urge to urinate, better urine flow with less straining, less of a feeling that the bladder is not completely emptied, and decreased nighttime urination. This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone (DHT) that causes growth of the prostate. Finasteride is not approved for prevention of prostate cancer. It may slightly increase the risk of developing a very serious form of prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks. Women and children should not use this medication.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
