Is finasteride safe for preventing hair loss, or will I lose my libido and gain 50lbs?

      Don't trust the FDA so much.
      They created the opioid crisis in the US.

      Sure just like Accutane, Vioxx, Cylert, which were all discovered to cause harm years after approval. The FDA has made mistakes.

      In how many months did you notice the results? Was it like new hair on bald spots or thickening of existing hairs?

      I didn’t get any regrowth, it’s just preventative for me.

    Don’t do it. Just embrace getting old. If the limp dick doesn’t get you, the brain fog might. You use your brain to make money right? Why risk it?

      I second just accepting it. Lift weights and do other things to look good with short or no hair

      Yeah. Just lift more. Give them other places to look at than your hair

    No, don't ever take this. It is poison and may ruin your life. Not worth it. See complaints to fda.

    I had nasty nasty depression that came from it. I accidentally forgot to bring it with me on vacation and realized how much better I felt while I was not on it. Stopped taking it and depression largely went away

    It's largely safe. Only some folks have that nasty side effect.

    Lots of negativity about this drug, but most people have no issues. Works fine for me. If it makes you feel better, buy the brand name version which is made in Europe (the generic versions are made in India), but it shouldn't matter much. Lots of people use this and numerous studies confirm its effectiveness.

      What is the name of the generic version of finasteride available in India?

    Not worth the risk.

    Instead use minoxidil every evening, nizoral shampoo every 3 days and work on your mental health

    1.4% of men who use it may get ED that persists even after they stop using it. Roll of the dice. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28289563
