I agree with you. I'm actually taking finasteride. But I wanted to understand exactly what the drug was doing to me. A lot of the problems may have occurred long after taking the drug, and people didn't even attribute it to finasteride. I'm not saying it's bad, but I think the more I know about it the more I can overcome it.People allege that it has the opposite sides from raising T and to the extent that any hormone might throw something off if changed, it's not common and the issue for many people is that there's dutasteride too but you pays your money and you takes your chances. Your hair must mean a little to you or you might not be on here researching. People like me, hair is everything and I take finasteride and duta and I dance a jig to the Goddess that we actually have such wonderful treatment options. Guys complain all of the time on here about no treatments. There are amazing treatments compared to 40 years ago, and some can halt baldness and maybe even thicken hair a little but you have to take baldness meds for them to actually work.
Many more guys return saying "oy vey, what was I thinking about?" The sides of baldness are huge and pervasive and they last life long so nothing's free and the price of meager to no treatment is enormous but if you are delving into the sides that might not exist and that you have not in fact experienced, it's not just Janey. All of us answer questions by the woe is me ten years later types and their math and what seems worth what and preference coefficients have change greatly and scientists think it might be related to experience and age because young guys don't know yet what baldness for the next 80 years is for the youngest and they did a poll and people over 100 years of age miss their hair exactly the same as every other age.
Go Figure says Janey. It's as if I wrote that and not Will. Ha!
