I’m a 24 year old male seeking advice. I took finasteride for the first time on November 2nd 2019. Took 4 pills. Started experienced ED around a week after my last dose. It all became fine around November 20th. Now, I must point out I had read a lot about the side effects before taking finax including stuff on this forum, research studies and was a bit freaked out(rightly so). Nevertheless, I took it. I worked out daily and kept myself very busy at work after noticing the side effects and then they finally disappeared somehow.
So I thought it might be psychological. I took it again, one pill on Jan 28 2020 and another on Feb 4th. I was still very very anxious but took it. Started noticing effects around Feb 7th/8th. I was very negative after taking finax because I felt I was finally cured after a scary two weeks in November. These effects have still not gone. No brain fog, fatigue etc but ED with a downward bend. Took viagra last night and while it helped somewhat, my erections weren’t like the pre finax ones at all. Testosterone level is normal.
I don’t have morning erections but my libido is not too affected. Got an ultrasound done too, doc said its all fine and the problem is probably psychological. But i know this is understudied and I’m wondering if I can be cured after 4 consecutive pills then could I be cured after these two spaced out over a week too?
What kind of tests or treatments did you guys go through after the onset of the problem? What are my options? mI don’t know but is there a way to find out whether this is psychological vs physiological?
I don’t know if anyone has a similar story or otherwise but I genuinely believe this forum might be able to help somehow so I would really really appreciate some help/insight.
