Hello everyone, I am 20 years old, I started taking finasteride from 16 to 18, I started with a strong urge to urinate all the time that did not leave me calm, then insomnia, after these 2 symptoms I stopped taking fines / dutas, after 2 months I had loss of orgasm, loss of pleasure when ejaculating, numb and sandy penis, loss of sensitivity and impotence, total impotence lasted for 3 months, now I can have erections but it is difficult for me to maintain them, I recovered 26% of sensitivity, what I do not recover are powerful orgasms, libido, AND THE WORST, I cannot sleep, I sleep 2 hours and I wake up to urinate, every moment, and I am afraid to take antidepressants to sleep. , which improves my urination. Sublingual desmopressin was frequent, but a little, I stopped dutasteride 1.5 years ago and my recovery is almost nil, any advice you can give me for my recovery? To improve insomnia? Please and sorry for my english

I had the same sleep issue, I take now 150 mg Quetiapine, makes me sleep for 10 hours with no side effects noticed except it makes me sleepy for like 2 hours maybe after I wake up

Reaction to medications differ from person to other person, maybe you can read about its sides, I didn’t do any research about it my doctor prescribed it to me
So it’s up to you in the end, but from my personal experience it helped me a lot
