Before starting the drug I saw two separate dermatologists in canada. Both hardly even mentioned symptoms, saying .5 percent of people with a history of mental or physical health issues can get the libido side effects but that its so rare its barely even worth mentioning. They also both didn’t even know what post finasteride syndrome was and swept it under the rug as being nothing or being from crazy hypochondriacs on the internet . Is this true? Is our condition really so insanely rare that most docs will never even encounter a case even after prescribing the medication for decades? Is there any doctors who are against the drug, maybe some endocrinologists might be?
How many men actually take this drug? Is it most men? Do like 99% just take it without thinking and never have any issues? Im guessing 99% of men in Hollywood or who work in front of a camera take the drug for example.
Do we know anything on if the drug is bad for the body in general? Are we just insane genetic outliers? Would you ever let your son take the drug?
Also what is with the crowds from hair loss forums trying to silence anyone who talks about the side effects or potentially negative health ramifications? They tear us down, say its all in our heads and we are crazy, etc. They get so defensive, it just feels weird. I hate when people say its all in my head but what do I know, maybe it is? It seems like so many men can just take it with no issue and im so envious.
Sorry for the stream of consciousness, anyone wanna offer any answers or opinions? Im looking to discuss while being trapped inside due to this corona virus stuff.
