I’m beginning to wonder if the best way to combat future finasteride and accutane use is to socially stigmatize them, the way pharmaceuticals in general used to be shamed. Certainly we can’t expect much from the government or the FDA. Maybe this would involve going on hairloss subreddits and forums and trolling them, among other things. And not to be transphobic, but perhaps strongly associating the drugs to gender transitioning would discourage heterosexual men from using them. Not a lot of people know how fin has been used as an anti-androgenic drug for trans women.
The most ideal solution is to ban them outright, but that’s probably not happening anytime soon. One other tactic might just be to make it taboo to take them in the first place. Anyone on board with this idea?
