I welcome everyone to post all media, information patient stories/photos and clinical studies here as it would be easier from outside sources to find all crucial information- please stick to the subject when commenting.

I think Matt’s (RIP) story specifically is of great clinical importance as it shows before and after photos of him taking Finasteride for 3 weeks many of us have also experienced damage done to our facial features over a relatively quick period of time from this drugs use.
Loss of collagen
Facial thinning
Subcutaneous fat loss
Loss of youthfulness/accelerated ageing

None of this mentioned in the warming label.


Here doctor Rachel S. Rubin a Urologist who specializes in sexual medicine references Robert Melcangi’s lastest paper (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S235228951930061X) sending out a word of caution on the drugs dangers saying that too many patients are “suffering”.

Here doctor Irwin Goldstein a renowned Urologist talks about the sexual side effects that can indefinitely persist after the use of Finasteride saying it is “no good” and recognizes the condition Post Finasteride Syndrome
