Ihatepropecia1's brain fog discussion

Don’t do that Kid! It pass if you work out your brain. You can even take supplements like Omega 3, it helps a lot with any kind of mental disorder. Trust the fact that your body will recover naturally with time. But don’t forget to take care of yourself… exercise, eat clean as much as you can, work your brain even though is hard for a while

Hey man dont do it… i went through the same thing twice i had a brain fog when your into it it just feels like it wont go away… trust me u have just been off for 7 days even the early 7 days of mine had the same feeling… u’ll need to give it atleast 30 days u will get better. just eat good food have some green tea and detox your body listen to some music… we all are here because we have been through it. its just a side effect and will definately go away…

Hi everyone, I’m trying to get an idea of how long everyone’s brain fog lasted? Mine has been a week now and still no better. Also what does yours feel like? Mine feels like I’m out of it constantly, can’t hold conversation, takes me hours to read one page. Not to be rude, but I feel disabled or retarded.

Has anyone done anything that helps?

22 years for me. Cognitive impairment got worse when I took other meds that cause similar problems. I am disabled actually, have not been able to work since 2014.

Sorry to hear that @Crossroads, are you aware of our survey? Could you take it, please.

Hi everyone,

A few days ago I had to go the hospital because I did attempt to kill myself. Its embarrising to post but my depression and brain fog got so bad its all I could think about. I have never been depressed so can only say that the finasteride has absolutely ruined me. Yesterday for the first time in over a week I only had minor brain fog. It was amazing, I felt like myself again. Then today I wake up and BOOM hits me again horrible brain fog. cant study, play guitar, do anything. I did take a vitamin B pill this morning and am wondering if this could potentially be the case? Has anyone had any adverse effects from vitamin B or fish oil? Yesterday gave me hope but if this brain fog does not completely go away soon I am very seriously considering mental help

Dude please listen to other people here. Don’t take shit. You have to ride out the feeling like shit and feeling absolutely fucked and most ppl start to feel better. I truly understand the freak out and how bad it is but get off of this forum and give yourself a break because it won’t make anything better for your situation


@Bigpoppa10040 is correct when he says you should ride this out.

Searching suggests that people here have crashed off the back of B vitamins.


To clarify, I searched and found people saying that they had crashed.

That’s it. I didn’t survey everyone who took B vitamins. I just looked to see if it might be a problem.

The guy has been off two weeks, it’s right to be cautious, imo.

I edited “I think” and “in my opinion” into your post as you are (as communicated in a direct message) taking your information from some forum posts, unfortunately not enough data to be certain.

I find it surprising how certain you are that people should risk their health by taking action that has harmed people here.

That’s why the people here are keep doing the same mistakes, on every warning you get a counter. It doesn’t matter what the dosage is, if it will crash you it will, even if you are taking the recommended amount! It is the same as whether you are taking 0.1mg or 1mg Fin, if you are sensitive to this it will eventually fuck you up. What’s the point preaching that something will do no harm when you are not 100% sure about that?
What would you fix with B12 when you don’t even know what is broken?
Guys, you have to wake up and use some common sense before say or do something, it’s not that hard, is it?


B vitamins I believe are methyl donors- I personally would avoid.

I’m starting to take super b-complex with vitamin c and P5p… should I not?

Stay the fuck away from b12! It is methyl donors and can worsen you permenantly, just don’t take nothing it’s the best route of action. You don’t fight fire with more fire

Hey everyone, I’m now 2 weeks since my last finasteride pill and yet the sides are hitting even worse. My brain fog has doubled, I’ve had to quit my job, drop out of school and hardly can think. I am eating clean, taking fish oils, and am seeing a neurosurgeon but idk what to do anymore. I don’t see this brain fog going away. It seems like permanent damage. Does anyone have any experience using Adderall or vyvanse to help with the brain fog? I’m dead inside

Hi everyone. Im now two weeks post finasteride last pill and my brain fog is worse then ever. I read some reports that brain fog is actually considered brain damage from the finasteride. I’m starting to think I will never recover from this brain fog especially since it can be considered brain damage I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. I had to drop out of college, lost my job, and am going to be homeless soon all because of finasteride ruining my brain. I’m trying to see a neurologist to see if I can fix it surgically but I don’t know anymore. That pill made me fucking retarded and disabled, how did you guys deal with brain fog and keep your job and move forward? I don’t see an end. My life is over if I can’t study and become a doctor

HI everyone,

I am now over a month past my last finasteride pill and still have horrible brain fog. It is like this feeling that something is in my brain, it is like a pressure in my brain. I am getting perfect sleep, diet and all else and yet the brain fog is absolutely horrible. I am barely surviving because of this. Has anyone here had success with Modafinil? I used Adderall the past week and It was extremely helpful the first few times but the past few days the brain fog has become even worse along with my ED and I am starting to think I just experienced what everyone calls the crash.

Any advice helps. Please.

Mate, trying this and that, especially from the beginning won’t get you in better place. Additional self-medcating could be really harmful, I would suggest you to stay away from it. Try simple things, warm lemon water every morning on emty stomach, 1 day a week dry fasting, workout, monitor your food, what makes you worse, then try to avoid it, try not to eat sugar, drink alcohol forna while… Stuff like that, simple but not harmful. Run blood test to see where are you at.
Dry brushing allegedly helps too.
If you don’t risk it, the chance to recover is really big!
Just be patient.

I started taking Adderall last week on a doctors recommendation are you saying I should fully stop the Adderall or this could cause me not to recover? It has been the only that has given me any brain relief and made it possible for me to study

Do not overshoot it…

what do you mean by do not overshoot it? I am taking 15mg right now which is supposedly pretty low. My doctor is the one that gave it to me.

What did you do to get rid of your brain fog?? is it permanent for me :(?
