Thank God that this place exists.
I took Generic Finasteride for 5 days this past week. On day 5, I couldn’t get an erection.
I stopped immediately, this is my 3rd day off it.
The past two nights and yesterday have been insane. I’ve barely slept, I feel anxious, hot flashes, zero sexuality, groin pain.
Right now I’m exhausted and am thinking of going to the doctor to ask for both some sleeping tablets and some Viagra. It is my expectation that the doctor will have no knowledge of PFS / Finasteride in general.
Should I ask him to run tests? What should I ask for? What good would it do?
I have no idea if either is a good idea but I have read that the latter can help to open up blood flow and aid recovery. I’ve read a lot online. I have no idea how reliable any of it is. I read that you should take a decreasing dose to get off Finasteride, no idea again. I am afraid of what could happen if I take more.
I am hopeful that because I took such a small number of pills it might mean I am able to recover. Suicide already weighs heavily upon me and I have planned to make a will this week. As far as I can tell, things could get much worse. I dread mood swings and brain fog.
How do you cope?
