A question for the science community

This is all hypothetical, but:

  • I took Accutane for a year for acne in high school, no side effects whatsoever
  • I took an SRI for 6 months in the same year I took Finasteride, no side effects whatsoever

After reading many posts about the epigenetic theory, it seems to hold up more than any other. I’m not questioning it at all, but I am wondering if one of the ‘science guys’ on here may have a theory as to why Fin caused such a strong reaction, but the other two drugs did nothing? Could it be that I’m genetically predisposed to Finasteride in particular, but not the other two?


Nice question, you are not alone, i know few members that took Accutane before with no sides but crashed with Fin afterwards.
