Hello to everyone,

My English is not very good.

After my tests in April, I started using 1/4 proscar daily, everything was fine for the first 20 days. sexual desire and erection were normal.
After 1-2 days, when I got an erection, I lowered the dose. I used it for another 3-4 days and cut it completely off.
It’s been 40 days, I’ve been going to the doctor for 10 days. I started using herbal pills containing ESTW and MACA. I get an erection in the morning but the level is too low. I’m not all day. I get an erection while watching porn but the hardness level is low.
While using it, I gained 4-5 kilos and became fat.
I was using cipralex antidepressant, which I continued to use before, while using this drug.
The weird thing is, when I put my hand on my hair right now, my hair doesn’t fall out and my hair doesn’t get oily at all now.

I’m going to do a hormone test this week.

I have started diet and exercise now. I hope I’m not pfs. I am scared.

Hi @Mrtksn and welcome to the forum!

I’m really sorry you’re going through this.

Can you please put a checkmark next to the symptoms you’re experiencing? We require that every new member fills out the member story completely.

Okey thanks:)

It’s been 40 days, what are my chances of correcting them?

Many guys who used the poison and developed symptoms had a profile here and than disappeared after some weeks or have had a recovery story.

They only had the normal side effects and went back to normal in the first three months.

interesting thing is my hair does not get oily and does not fall out?

I don’t know about finasteride for hairloss I used it for my prostate. Same mistake.

I get it, take care of yourself. I would be glad if someone with knowledge can write.

Hi @Mrtksn,

I’m sorry you’re going through this, I know how distressing the symptoms you describe are. PFS is generally defined as side effects which persist for more than 3 months after stopping the drug. It’s quite common to get side effects whilst using Finasteride which resolve within 3 months of quitting. Given that it is less than 2 months since you quit the drug, I would try not to worry too much yet. Try and live a healthy, low stress lifestyle and hopefully you’ll be feeling back to your normal self soon.

Keep us updated with how you get on.

Hi, of course i will keep it updated.
shit situation…
