Merck and my doctors claim that the side-effect rate is .3% with no chance of persistent side effects after 2 weeks upon stopping. Obviously, the 2nd part of their claim is untrue considering ourselves, but what are your opinions on the .3% side-effect rate?
Almost everyone I know who has taken fin experienced some form of side effects, most notable accelerated hair loss, ball ache and lower libido. Thankfully, they all recovered after a few weeks upon stopping aside from the initial hair shed from fin. I still have sides, unfortunately.
I know that Merck and doctors prefer to only look at studies where all participants continued taking the drug throughout the duration of the study, but this seems extremely misleading considering that the only reason you would continue taking the drug for a long time is if you experience no side effects.
One of my friends is considering taking fin, and I’m trying to dissuade him. I think deep down, he’s realizing that Merck and doctors are lying about the side effect rate considering everyone we know experienced sides, but if anyone can point me to some hardcore numbers, I would appreciate it.
