    36 yrs old.
    1/4 Proscar every second day.
    3 months.
    Hair getting thicker and new growth in temples that receded years ago.
    No - none - nada sexual side effects. Pitching tents in the morning, "blue steel" cat couldn't scratch it, nothing watery, will "f*** anything that moves - if I come over, your fish will stop moving".

    Haven't posted in a while, but here's my take on the PRO-pecia...

    Started using it 10/04 after 2 years on minoxidil. Worked like a charm, reduction in hair loss and regrowth. But oh the side effects have kicked in after 8 months - loss of libido, less erection, less/more watery ejaculation. I have a Dr. appointment this week to discuss the situation (cut to 1/2 dosage or stop altogether).

    The side effects may not occur for everyone but they are certainly real. I suggest if you have the ability to do so, talk with your Doctor before starting this drug and full understand how it alters your body. Also, if you're using minoxidil or something similar, continue to use it if you try Propecia, that way if you need to stop, you have something to fall back on.

    Thanks for the info. What dosage were you on?

    And Whatthehell has since posted that he has had side effects, losing sensitivity after a few weeks. :(

    I've read that it many cases it stabilises after 2 1/2 months... Please keep us informed on how things are going for you. Hope things get better real soon.

    I've bought some proscar but I still can't bring myself to take any yet. The thought of sending my willie wonka is very scary. Increased acne would be a huge pain too. Both those side effects would be 10 times worse than my hair worries at the moment...

    I'm thinking of taking an 1/8th every second day.

    My sides, as minor as they were, seem to have lessened over the past few weeks.

    khan just start taking it and see what happens. Ride it out for a few months if the sides aren't all that severe. Mine came and went in the 6+ weeks that I have been on finasteride. Maybe they will come again, or maybe it was all in my head.
