Since months I am tappering down from finasteride and experience pur hell.
Most problematic is severe insomnia other symptoms include: headache, mind fog, problems attention (especially space and movements), depression, flat non-existing emotions, loss of 14kg, stomach and belly pain, whole body twiches when falling asleep, breathing irregularities during sleep, oxygen saturation dips while being at sleep, nightly and daily burst of arousal (galvanic skin response), increased resting heart rate (especially when tappering to fast), absence of libido, problems with ejaculation, but painful unpleasant longlasting erections at night.
Lately I was taking paracetamol (acetaminophen) and buscopan (Hyoscine butylbromide, also known as scopolamine butylbromide) for a few days. I started to have still short (4-5h) but very recovering sleep. After a few days all mental symptoms where gone and I felt like a normal person.
Of course it’s not healthy to take the medication everyday so I stopped again and felt as bad as before.
It’s good to know that once in a while I can have “vacation” from PFS.
I am especially interested in the neuroendocrine effects that paracetamol seems to have.
I wanted to know if anyone noticed the same effect of paracetamol or buscopan?
