24 year old male here, and after 11 days on Proscar 1.25mg/day I stopped taking it because I was suffering bad side effects (very low libido, dull orgasms, lack of feeling down there, ED, trouble sleeping, brain fog). I threw in the towel when I experienced a very bad ache shoot through my testicles WHILE I was orgasming. I was pretty terrified at the whole situation. Everything went back to normal about 2.5 weeks after quitting, but now I'm wondering if I should have stuck with it a little longer to see if the side effects dissipated. I wanted to know if anyone had a similar initial reaction to finasteride and stuck with it. Did the side effects go away? If so, did they go away 100%? How long did it take to get back to normal? I have a dermatologist appt in a week to discuss this (originally had it prescribed by my general practitioner who really did not give me a whole lot of info about it), but i'd love to hear some first hand experiences. Any input or advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
