The national german television channel, WDR also did a recent docu about finasteride. Reality of finasteride is getting more attention...

We agree here but and this is a big BUT. Finasteride for hairloss is a life long commitment, this isn't a drug you only take for a few weeks or months but years and even decades, essentialy disrupting your endocrine system for the rest of your life/as long as hair matters to you.
Why are you trying to lecture me on this? If you can read my profile says I am 46 and you know I have been taking it for 21.5 years, don't you think I know these things?
Because they are desperate, balding guys willing to go on hormone treatment for years to maybe save their hair. Or wait you don't think it's desperate going on a life long hormone treatment to save hair?.

No because like millions of others we have been there and done it and it worked to get us through our 20's, 30's and 40's with minimum further loss , what I think is desperate is too rub a couple of zinc tablets into your scalp thinking that in 21.5 years time you will be able to maintain your hair

Why do you speak about them in the 3rd person by saying 'they' you mean you, you were that desperate guy willing to take finasteride.
Look at you, you only made a new account here because you were so triggered by the harsh reality that finasteride is hormonal poison and trying to minimalize the risks involved. All because you're so very invested in your hormone pills you take every day, it seems you're tyring to convince yourself more than anyone else it's "safe" or not as bad.
This is Hilarious and complete nonsense what evidence have you got I made a new account on here to trying to minimalize the risks involved?
Why would somebody take finasteride for 21.5 years if they were worried about the risks?
I have sporadically been browsing hair loss forums for over 20 years. probably before you even knew what the internet was.

You say line this to almost everybody who comments on your posting, im not invested in anything ive already essentially won my hair loss journey I will be 50 soon, it makes no difference to me at my stage of life even if I drop the drug and settle for a more age appropriate hairline, do you think my wife or kids are going to suddenly care if I have a slightly more receded hairline in my 50's?

And I'm not judging you or anyone who is taking fina, balding is a serious problem imo especially for young men. But I try to go for safer options, even if they're less convenient or weaker
Ok thank you for not judging me!....that doesn't come across as patronising at all, do you honestly think I care, if a guy rubbing zinc tablets into his scalp to beat hairloss is judging me for being on finasteride for 21.5 years, give me strength you crack me up.

The thing I find odd about your position, is when i asked you a few months ago why are you so interested in all this , you said that you were just interested in the mechanisms of how things work .

ok I can get that, but by the time you first took finasteride it had already been available for several years, and there had been countless studies showing undesirable effects and there were clear warnings on the leaflet in the packet.

in spite of all this, you still decided to ignore all the warnings and take it anyway, in effect dismissing all the studies you had no doubt read.

Since then you have stopped taking the drug and have taken it upon yourself to start a one man crusade repeatedly trying to highlight all the dangers of this drug even though you ignored them all yourself,

which is fine, I can get that as well,

but that's not enough, you cant just post the studies and leave it like that, you have to classify anyone who still uses the drug as a 'coper' or ' desperate balding fina user' and take the moral high ground that you are some what superior and more informed than the average because you would never do any as stupid or desperate as to a take big pharm drug for hairloss.


Can you not see how contradictory and hypocritic that comes across as?

Hahaha, this is really becoming sad, especially for a man approaching 50. It's clear to everyone you are trying to cope, almost every post you ever made on this forum is in this thread with you trying to minimalize the dangers of finasteride.

Lol at you trying to attack zix now, what a weak deflection. Of course everyone knows it's not as strong as your hormone pills, but it can work if you're not balding aggressively. And we have many more alternatives than zix.

Also stop with your madness, of course balding men who take finasteride are desperate. It's a life long hormone treatment, stop acting like it's some innocent pill.

And if you really don't care then stop replying to me like an emotional child and move on, act like your age for once.

Just like many I went to a dermatologist, this is years ago by now and I was not informed about the dangers of finasteride. I trusted the medical system but hey I was naïve and wasn't reading hairloss forums, etc back then.

Also I'm not on a crusade, I only post in this thread about side effects. Look at my posting history. And yes I still follow the evolution of finasteride and I post it here instead of making a new thread every time something new happens, if I was on a real crusade I would bombard this forum with new threads about finasteride. And I get a lot of messages about people who experience side effects from finasteride, in this thread alone we have many people reporting their bad experience with the drug.

But it seems you're just upset about the words I use. I'm sorry if you get triggered by "cope", you'll have to get used to it or ignore me because I'll keep using those words.

Anyway, this "discussion" we have is ridiculous and doesn't lead to anything. Again, if you're so easily triggered, ignore me.

I don't need to attack 'zix' its not a thing its a figment of your imagination
Tell that to all the people in the zix thread.
So you can post whatever you want but everyone else must heed to your naïve nonsense?
Hahaha, omg you really are extremely triggered. Please friend, am I stopping you from taking your favorite hormone pills? Please keep taking your poison, I really don't care what you do.

Again, where do you want this "discussion" to go? Ever heard about agree to disagree and moving on? At your age you should.

But young naive guys like yourself who rub crushed zinc tablets into your scalp are not desperate then?..... only finasteride users?

That makes you a hypocrite to now mock others who take finasteride.

your mental breakdown is amusing to see old man
Not as amusing as watching a naïve young guy trying to convince himself that he has solved the worlds genetic male pattern hairloss problem with crushed zinc & B6

Jiji stop to be so paranoid may finasteride it's affecting your brain and hence you write sillyness things
You don't need to say that his treatment don't work if you do a research you will find good things about zix and I used zix and helped my inflamed scalp but I have aggressive male pattern baldness so I needed to start using topical Dutasteride

He doesn't need to convince you in nada
