Nobody recommends using it apart from people with a vested interest in the industry.

Does your professional training as a solicitor prepare you well for giving medical advice?

Hi Mr. Incognito;


As a solicitor what do you make of this statement by Dr Maurice Collins who claims the side effects of finasteride go away "in 100% cases" ?

I'm 21 and at the point where I'm starting to develop a bald spot on top, on top of my long receding hairline.

It's not worth it, I never have done it but I've been really tempted but I saw someone comment on a thread "if there's the slightest chance of my thing never working again I would not risk it", never mind just while using the drug because you can always come off it but when there's a chance of never regaining it's natural 'abilities' I wouldn't chance it for all the hair on my head.

The makers of the drug were found to have lied about the studies into its safety.

The risk is still tiny. There’s millions of people on it and a handful of people who’ve experienced these severe side effects. Everything in life has risk.

Its not tiny one study showed that at least 1% of men who take it will suffer permanent sexual side effects.

And for a lot of people the side effects only start once they STOP the drug.

By taking Finasteride you are basically playing russian roulette with your health.

and 99% don't suffer any ill effects.

I've been using it on and off for over 2 years. It does work. I haven't noticed any side effects.

In your view, is it worth the risk, given the possible side effects?

I should probably mention that I have had erectile dysfunction issues in the past.

Thanks for any views given.
that's rumoured to help?

The temporary side effects are way higher than 1%.


Dr. Andrew Rynne believes they could be up to 20% who experience side effects while on the drug.


Also if the side effects of the drug were so low the manufacturer would have no reason to manipulate/hide the data on its side effects.

Most studies are a load of crap, cause humans in general are paranoid idiots

You could give 100 men placebo's ( thinking they are taking Finasteride ) and alot of them men will have side effects
