  4. Tell us your story, in your own words, about your Finasteride usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.
    I was 25 when my hair loss started to bother me. I did some research and found for myself that finasteride would be the best and most comfortable medication to battle hair loss. I got it prescriped (5mg Fincar - split into 4 pieces).
    Since the first pill I nodiced decreased erections and mostly sexual sides (loss of sex drive, watery ejaculation). I stopped after one month and now almost 3 years later the sides are still here.
