    Has anyone experienced this side effect?

    I've been on the drug 2 days and I can literally see some shrinkage occurring. Is this normal?

    I've heard of it here and there but it doesn't seem common.

    I did get temporary penile shrinkage from the anti-depressant strattera. It recovered when I quit that drug.

    So you've taken the drug for two days and you've got shrinkage and you said in another post your balls went intermittently numb mmmmmm maybe you should reconsider it or could be all in your in head the fact you where posting asking people about sides and had doubts about it before you took it, maybe you should reconsider.

    you're making the right decision. There was a member called Bobster on here, propecia drove the guy crazy, he literally lost his mind. Dont make the same mistake he did ;)

    Do you think Dutasteride would have the same side effects? Of it is a different chemical makeup?

    No I don't think they'd have the same effects, in fact they'd have worst side effects as 5ar1 is found directly in the brain, and unlike finasteride, dutasteride does block 5ar1

    Took high doses of that drug once.

    What I didn't like is people thought I was friendly, and outgoing. It's because it made
    my pupils dilate.

    The truth is, I'm introverted and hateful. Kind of like a cat, don't bother me. Give me
    my fucking space, or else!

    Kind of hard to believe this sort of thing without before and after pics.
