    I've tried propecia twice, and got side effects both times. The first trial I took it for 3 months, developed side effects (only sexual sides) at the 2 month mark, cut down the dosage to every other day, still had sides so I dropped it. I recovered completely in 6 days. I waited 2 months and then decided to try again. This time I took .25 every other day. Sides developed again at the same 2 month mark... tried pushing through for another month, reducing my dosage even lower but nothing worked. I have now been off propecia completely for 2 months, and my side effects are still present. mainly lower libido and weaker erections... SO my question is this: for those of you who stopped propecia due to side effects, how long did it take for you to recover completely? Let me know your experience!

    Dude..People are fighting the side effects for years..You have to be patient with this. Some recovered in months and some in years. I am undergoing side effects myself. Zinc Gluconate has started to help me . Maybe you can try that.

    I know. Most people recover in a few weeks. Just asking for personal experiences that’s all.

    Haven’t taken it since I recovered, and never plan to take it again. I’m only using liposomal finasteride and Zinc Thymulin now.

    Is that topical finasteride? No sides with that? What about results though?

    Yes but it’s designed to reduce side effects, I don’t have sides, and results are decent but it’s early. Slight thickening of hairline, nothing on crown yet.

    I'll check them out.

    Is the efficacy supposedly as good as oral finasteride ?

    It’s apparently better at 2.5%. Less side effects too. I’m using 1% and haven’t had really had any noticeable sides so I might bump it up
