    Propecia for Hair loss

    I watch since taking o.a. Drug a significant lowering of my libido, as well as disturbance of the erection. After looking for a urologist, with whom I had discussed this consequence in detail, I have now halved the dosage, but unfortunately did not lead to an improvement. So I have to decide now: get hair (the rest of me was left) or just let go and a fulfilling sex life at full potency, as before. Life is sometimes cruel …: – /

    Propecia for Hair loss

    Propecia and Proscar have the same active ingredient finasteride. There are differences in the dose and in the price. The original preparation Propecia is about 150 euros for 90 times 1mg daily dose, generics cheaper. That makes about 1.65 euros for the daily dose. Proscar contains 5mg finasteride per film-coated tablet. The package 100 film-coated tablets Proscar cost around 130 euros. This means that for more than 5 times more active ingredient you have to pay 20 euros less than Propecia. I split the 5mg Proscar tablet on 4 approximately equal parts, which corresponds to a Wirkstoffaliquot of about 1.25mg, the overdose of + 25% is negligible. The price for the daily dose is then about 32ct. The handling is a little more complicated, first you have to share the film-coated tablets, it is important to make sure that no objects are contaminated with which female persons, especially pregnant women could have contact! Store the three parts that are not immediately used in a tight-fitting bottle with a drying body. Only when these are used up, process the next film-coated tablet. Do not divide to stock. The described side effects did not occur even after 10 years of daily use. I can not report any loss of libido or erectile dysfunction. Initially, after ingestion, I had slightly metallic taste in my mouth. Either that’s gone or I’m used to it, so it’s gone unnoticed. The drug was extremely effective in my case. 60% of my head hair was no longer fully developed, were thin and partially receding hairline. The dermatologist diagnosed hereditary hair loss after a hair root analysis. All the hair that was still there, even though they were so thin, recovered quickly after taking finasteride. After one year, there were no visible signs of hair loss. At first I also was afraid of the side effects, which I also suspected. Some times I also thought that my libido changed. After a time when I did not think about it anymore, and the daily intake of finasteride became normal, that improved. I believe that only the thought and the knowledge of the possible side effect could trigger it.

    Propecia for Hair loss

    Before taking the drug Finsaterid I warn everyone urgently. Who takes it, should know what he could do with it. My following experiences: I am 44 years old today. My hair loss started at the age of 22. Since then I fought against it, with various means, such. B. birch water etc. Everything did not work. Then in November 1998 I became aware of the drug Propecia in the daily newspaper. The drug had made it to the first page. To my delight, it should work for over 80 percent of users in hair loss. I went to see my family doctor and had Propecia prescribed. With the intake I started at the end of December 1998, daily one tablet. At first, after a few weeks, I noticed changes in some parts of my skin, they were pointy redness that was flaking. My desire for sex eased. The ejaculation volume decreased. Further, I perceived the enlargement of my breast. I play tennis. After about 1-1 / 2 years I was short of breath. I noticed this when playing tennis. The longer a match lasted, the more likely it was that I lost it. I finally did not win a match over three sets. It took another long time for me to associate this with taking Propecia. It is important to know that the process of changes in the body is creeping. In June 2001, I decided to wind down Propecia. Until then, the drug had already done enough for me. The hair loss was indeed stopped, but at what price. I hoped the shortness of breath and the other side effects mentioned, in addition to the occasional Aufdunsung my face, get rid of the deposition. I started jogging after discontinuing the drug. It became clear how bad my condition was already. At the slightest load, ie lowest running speed, my pulse ran upwards. I never had that before. My overall performance was worse, sometimes I just went up a 30-step staircase and colleagues asked me about my shortness of breath about running a marathon. The longer the drug was discontinued, the better I was. The shortness of breath and other side effects subsided more and more. In November 2001, however, I noticed that the hair loss started again. The side effects were all gone at this time. Now I made a decision, the consequences of which I still suffer today. Actually, I could have been glad that I was restored. But no, a bald head was horror for me then and so I took Propecia again. I decided to take a three-month course of treatment and stop taking it for three months, then take it again for three months. So I put it then. For me was in the episode even clearer than before, that only the taking of Finasteride was responsible for my complaints. It was like that that I jogged the 10 km meanwhile in 46 minutes. This time was, despite the same training, worse after taking. I was now clearly shorter breathless and more powerless than described above. It seemed to me running on time as a catalyst for the side effects. It was Easter 2002 when I decided to drop the drug again. Despite the withdrawal, this time the side effects remained and they got worse. There was also mood swings, I could not remember anything, generally I was in a bad mood, I got an irritable bowel. Endurance sport was out of the question, my pulse shot up to over 200 minutes after a few minutes. A cardiologist after a lapidary testified that my heart was healthy. He did not arrange further investigations. When urinating the beam became smaller, I got a prostate infection. Doctors, whom I told my impression that my massive complaints are obviously due to the earlier intake of Propecia, told me that this could not be so, because the active ingredient after the dismissal for a long time is no longer in the body. But I knew better, my feeling for my body I consider very good. It could all be related to the intake of Propecia. Finally, in the summer of 2009, I found a doctor who could alleviate my suffering. Since 2004 I played almost no tennis anymore, although it was my favorite hobby. Because of my shortness of breath, it just did not work anymore. I was in the club twice club champion and 9 times double championship. I say this only to make it clear that I would not have hanged such a hobby without good health problems. The doctor determined by an ultrasound scan that my spleen contracted to almost half its normal size

    Propecia for Hair loss

    Belong to the kind of consumers who brought the here evaluated drug finasteride from my voluntary service in the States directly to a day clinic for depression. Due to gloomy genetic-family prospects, as far as the continued existence of my mane was concerned, in February 2013 I had just prescribe that drug from a urologist. After a brief briefing on the possible side effects of losing libido and reducing my ejaculate, I triumphantly held a box of the preparation in my hand. No word about possible severe psychosomatic consequences. In the following months I was sometimes more, sometimes less afflicted by severe mood swings, expressed sadness attacks and flanked by strong exhaustion. Likewise, a reduction in my libido occurred. However, the hope of eternal hair left me blind to these warning signs, especially since in my naivety, causality was not in the least conscious of me. Rather, I was inclined to project emotional imbalances on all possible, sometimes more, sometimes less potentially burdening contradictions in me or external events (unexplained sexual identity, unsatisfactory work in the project, no German comparable term in English, etc). After I had rocked my high school diploma, I entered my planned one-year stay in the States, which came to a sudden end after half a year. Shortly after my arrival, the already mentioned symptoms increased and culminated in deep, debilitating sadness, profound apathy and maximum agitation. It came to the day when it overwhelmed me to perform most natural tasks (eg, brushing teeth, food intake, dressing). In the end, my parents, in my distress, guided me home with great effort, where the final diagnosis was made by a physician, after a spit route between psychiatrists and endocrinologists, PFS, a severe endogenous depressive episode. After discontinuation of the drug, my mental state became solid within three weeks. The fact that this consolidation in such a short time is not mandatory, as shown by the case of a young American, who after the discontinuation of finasteride for a long time continued to suffer from severe depression and finally saw no choice but to escape his earthly torment (Youtube). Thousands of other victims who organize themselves online in the forum propeciahelp.com speak volumes. Ironically, the only thing I got into the row during that time, even at the darkest hour, was to eat the pretty finasteride tablets. Added to this is that my family line has no dispositions regarding depression. I do not want to join those people who demonize or praise this drug per se per se, and because of this strong imbalance and polarization of ratings, I doubt whether all the reviews come from actual users. Nevertheless one should inform oneself about the potentially possible side effects exactly, so that one can react immediately with occurring side effects or is only able to recognize them. Each individual brings with it a different constitution, which is why a generalization is forbidden. People who are already traveling with a low level of DHT anyway, keep your fingers away! It can be assumed that only a fraction of those who have undergone similar experiences as I have commented on the Internet at all. To rely solely on pseudo-studies and experts (Prof. Dr. Wolf / Dr C. Kunte or other acquired expertise), which were launched mostly by pharmaceutical companies, I regard as highly negligent. It is particularly dangerous there, where economic interests and supposed expert advice mix. The period of six months of tormenting blackness has retrospectively brought me closer to my family, revealing personal priorities, and today, with unparalleled freedom, strength, and balance, lets me look at many things that might have thrown me off track earlier , It has always been clear to me that life is not always beautiful, just as I always thought it was worth fighting for this life. This belief is even more valid for me today. But I do not know if I would still be in this world today and write these lines if that fight had lasted more than 7 months
