MAYBE. If the timing seems to coincide then maybe. Check with your physician. Could have to do with testosterone levels as well so check it out.
Depression? . Make sure that you are not overlooking major depression...
How safe are DHT blocking products like propecia/finasteride/saw palmetto? Side efx like gynecomastia and libido loss... Are those common at all? Help.
Saw palmetto. Is an unregulated supplement that has bio-identical properties, but is not standardized. If you are concerned about male pattern baldness, try using minoxidil and finasteride. Side effects are uncommon but possible. Try them and monitor for side effects. You can stop if dissatisfied with results. Claims that effects are long lasting seem dubious.
Is propecia (finasteride) the best cure for hair loss. How high is the danger of prostate cancer and loss of libido. What dosage woulk you recommend?
Propecia (finasteride) Propecia (finasteride) is written as 1mg per day. I have written over 100 prescriptions and have not seen any prostrate cancer or loss of libido even though these are supposedly rare side effects.
I want to quit propecia (finasteride) after 4 years. I'm experiencing low libido. What is the safest way to stop?
Propecia (finasteride) If used appropriately no wean should be needed.
Cold turkey. You can just stop taking it. I also noticed that you're a female. Propecia (finasteride) has not been shown to be effective in women. Furthermore, women of childbearing age should not handle the tablets (if crushed or broken) as it can cause sexual ambiguation of the fetus.
What do the experts think, should my libido return to normal after finasteride (propecia) side effects?
If you stop it. If you stop the propecia, (finasteride) the side effects will go away. However, so will the benefits. See if your libido returns to normal after you are on the Propecia (finasteride) for six months. Propecia (finasteride) lowers the dihydrotestosterone but not the total testosterone. Libido has alot of inputs other than just a component of a hormone, and your mind can make up for the slight hormonal change. (proscar=5xpropecia).
Please respond. Are DHT blockers like saw palmetto and propecia (finasteride) safe for men? Will that cause libido problems? Or does it just depend? I'm confused.
Block DHT. Propecia (finasteride) and saw palmetto block DHT Saw Palmetto is a natural palm berry that contains properties that block DHT effectively. DHT causes hair thinning and prostate enlargement they are safe for men and do not decrease libido which comes from testosterone. DHT is an end metabolite of normal testosterone. Some men produce more DHT than others.
Variable. 5 out of 100 men taking Propecia (finasteride) will experience a sexual side effect as reported in the initial studies. All men returned to normal function after stopping the medication.
Is minoxidil going to be enough for hair retention or thickening for a 17yr old male using 5%. I dont want to use propecia (finasteride) because it decreases libido?
It depends. This will depend on the medical assessment of the reason for your hair loss. A full evaluation by your physician will be able to guide you.
