    An odd side effect I've noticed in my short time on finasteride.. My dreams are more complex. I remember them better and they're always of a peculiar nature.

    Call me crazy if you will, but it's totally true.

    That's actually a pretty awesome side effect, if in fact the dreams are pleasant.

    I noticed my dreams became more vivid when my hormones stabilized about 6 months ago. Not sure what it all means, but this could be a good sign for you.

    ZINC man

    That sh*t gives you the most amazing dreams. Kinda don't want to wake up is how awesome and surreal they are.

    Zinc has so many health benefits! I started taking it at 20 years old because of all the health benefits.. Little did I know I would be taking it still at 22 for rapid hair loss haha. Can't say I've had any funky dreams though!

    Why would your hormone levels effect dreams though?

    I've had weird dreams but that could be do with Sertraline, however they seem nightly ever since I started finasteride but they're not BAD dreams, just very random.

    Probably a bit of a weird thing to say on an Internet forum but I remember within my first few weeks on finasteride I had my first wet dream since I was about 12..

    Also about zinc, it's actually a great idea to take it alongside finasteride as it acts as a natural aromatase inhibitor. I've never suffered from side effects from finasteride but the ones I'm most intent on keeping at bay are the estrogen related ones, I'm pretty sure zinc is good for this..

    Hi , you're so damn right . couple of days ago i took my first Finastride pill in my life and then i had very vivid dreams .
    i haven't had such tangible dreams in my whole life . wow
    Today i took another pill and noticed that as soon as i close my eyes in bed i start dreaming .
    I'm really worried but also curious about this dreaming changes indeed .

    Googled “Finasteride dreams” at 3am this morning and this thread popped up, good ol HairLossTalk.com.

    I too am only a few days into using finasteride for the first time and this has also been my experience. Very vivid mental imagery and like the dream has started before I’ve fallen asleep. Was happening mere seconds after closing my eyes.

    Has anybody else using finasteride had this side effect before? If so, did it subside after persevering for a while? I’ve noticed no sexual sides nor brain fog thus far but I wasn’t even aware that finasteride could disturb one’s sleep in such a way. I’ll be honest, it was quite unpleasant and if that was to be a mainstay of using the drug, I’d have to drop it as I only managed four hours of bad sleep last night and sleep is something I hardly ever struggle with. I want to give finasteride a fair shot so hoping others here can reassure me this subsides.

    this is my experince :
    The sleep side effect only lasts one week or two after you start taking the medicine .
    then you go back to seeing normal dreams that are hard to remember .

    are you sure about this? I haven't had a proper dream in ages. It's like my mind turns off (whenever I go to sleep) and I wake up the next day as if nothing happened during the entire night.
