hi, i’m wondering if anyone experiences the known cognitive side effects of finasteride without experiencing the sexual side effects? and also, if it’s common to begin experiencing side effects 10 or more years after beginning to take finasteride?
i experience brain fog and nausea regularly, and i’m trying to figure out if it’s because of finasteride.
i have taken finasteride for about 15 years, and i still take it. i never experienced any side effects whatsoever until about 3 or 4 years ago, when i began to experience the brain fog (it sort of feels like there’s a tightness in my temples) and the nausea.
i also suffer from seasonal allergies, and i’m allergic to dust mites. brain fog/nausea is of course a symptom of that, so that’s a possibility. i also drink often and smoke weed occasionally.
caffeine seems to make the brain fog and nausea worse.
do y’all think it’s likely or unlikely that my symptoms are due to finasteride? any knowledge or advice would be appreciated. thanks!
