Discussion in 'Dealing with Side Effects' started by INT, Jan 25, 2017.
Guys, its been almost 4 months since I took my last dose of Finasteride. I have had multiple side effects that include sexual, urinary and sleep. At first I took horny goat weed but that didnt help. Then from Jan 1st week, I started taking Zinc and Ashwagandha. Zinc is definitely helping me with the erections. Ashwagandha with the sleep. Then I bought Moringa leaves powder from Amazon and boiled it with water and drank it for my pee issues. Now I can keep the E's, able to sleep much better and very importantly not scared anymore. I don't check the threads online. I just wanted to share it here because this one gave me a lot of confidence. I am yet to try Pine pollen.Overall I am atleast 85% of myself consistently for the past one month. I work out and feel confident.
The irony is these are exactly the sides you get from going bald/being bald.
Trust me they are not. Id rather have a sharp mind and be bald then having the same sides as somebody with Alzheimer's. Anyway nearly 4 months on from stopping and I feel fine again, sleeping well, memory better and getting the morning wood again so hopefully no permanent damage. The RU is maintaining fine so will stick with it for now.
I am not saying everybody will get these sides because that would be untrue, most will have a sides free existence and great hair because it does work. I was just one of the unlucky ones.
any sides at all with ru?
No, non at all but only been on it 10 weeks. I use surgical gloves to apply it though as when I used my fingers it caused a little derma reaction, I try not to touch my hair for an hour afterwards but so far I am impressed. In fact next time I will probably go for the 8% solution as I lost ground with stopping the finasteride but it seems to be coming back rather well even seen some hairs on my previously bald crown.
I am planning on showing some pictures after the 4-6 month mark as a comparison as I have base line, 18 months finasteride + 10% minoxidil and will post the RU, 5% minoxidil + derma roller with castor results. Although I am tempted to add PGE2 and stem into the mix I will leave it a couple more months before doing so.
Been 6 weeks since my last bad erection. All my erections are good now and also during intercourse I did not lose EQ. Still hope that my sensitivity will increase a bit more though. Cumming during the second round took quite a while.
I can also ad another supplement to the definitely works list: DHEA.
KInd of confirms that a big part of the finasteride side effects have their roots on a neurosteroid level.
