Balding and finasteride

How long does it take for finasteride side effects to start?
I've been taking it for 4 days and I'm already feeling my libido low. could it be placebo?

      are you suggesting that side effects only coincide with the intended effects of a drug? because that's fricking moronic

    My dick died for the first week or so, then came back with a vengeance as your test spikes and you can wank for England. Go mental during that phase as it only lasts a week or two then goes to below baseline. It should gradually come back

      Then you never had side effects again?

        A reduced libido and a loss of nocturnal erections/morning wood were the only ones that stuck around. I've been taking it for over two years now and they have improved but I'd be lying if I said they were gone. I am however not the best person to judge as I have severe varicocele on one ball that will be causing problems like low test which I have. I would take a lower libido over being bald.

        I'm still wanking every day so my wiener hasn't died. I don't want to scare you off, it really is the only thing along with dut (stronger fin) to save your hair, but there are some sides. If you go to other places like r/tressless they shoot everything down as nocebo.

          But you had these side effects on libido since day 1?

            I can't remember if it was day 1 exactly, I did get the cold/numb dick symptom early on but idk if it was the first day. The problem is you go into taking it expecting sides and you get them so there is a bit of nocebo to it. Take it for a year and see how you feel, you'll go through bad sheds early on so don't be discouraged when you see hair falling out, it will grow back stronger.

        I had the same thing. I started fin in 2019 and the first week I did not get hard whatsoever which worried me. But after a week I was just horny all the time. On average I have been busting daily since starting fin and thats more than before.

        Well as I said in the other post it SHOULD gradually come back but for me not quite there. 'Most' people definitely are not reporting long lasting sides, but there are more people with sides than studies show.

            Meanwhile the thousands of other people who have no sides won't post anything because they're getting on with their lives. Try it out, if it doesn't work fro you then come off it.

            fin definitely has sides as it messes with your hormones but fin itself has a half life of about a day and the hormonal effects last for a few weeks before it returns to baseline
            Otherwise baldness would be solved forever if you had to take a couple of pills and the effects last for 5 years

    I think it takes a couple months, but it's a gradual process and not just going to "kick in" one day. I've been taking it for years and my hair loss seems to have slowed and some of the balding has filled in a bit, although it's hard to tell. If I stop taking it I start to notice hairs falling out though, so I'm not going off of it.

    Be sure to exercise and maintain a healthy diet rich in protein and nutrients too. Get your omega-3s and multivitamins.

      if by "receding hairline" you mean something like pic related, then I'm with you, at least if you're 35+
      Lots of coping by Norwood 5s who claim to have a "receding hairline" though. If it starts to fall out at the crown, it's over.

        You have hair dysmorphia.
        No one gives a frick about a little bit of norwooding, especially the tiny amount in the pic you posted, except for insecure lookmaxxers.
        Personality is waaay more important than micro imperfections in appearance.

        Less than 1% of people in clinic drug studies experienced side effects in varying degrees.
        Constantly thinking about your dick not working while taking the drug highly raises your chances of experiencing those effects.

            Your dick doesn't get shrunk or get numbed by finasteride, if that's what you're implying.
            Regarding the studies, there's plenty of them. It's a well known phenomena in the medical field, just like placebo is.

    Weird question maybe, but at what age does balding normally start? I know there are super early cases, but on average.
    I'm mid 30s now, and it's hard for me to notice if the thin hair in front is standard male pattern baldness vs. just thin hair as a default / consequence of long hair in my youth and doing ponytail / pulling the hair in front.

      Some start balding at 16, some at 35. The best way to know if you're balding is just to compare pictures of yourself now to the ones in the past.

    It's physiologically impossible for your side effects too be real. To begin with it takes time to lower your dht, it will happen overnight. Secondly, even if you could instantly refine alll dht from your body it would take a while to notice the effects, since dht is a signalling hormone that would require a period of absence before the androgen receptor ceases transcriptional regulation.

      Made a mess of that phonepost but presumably it's coherent enough for you to get what I was saying. Tl;dr: hormones like dht don't work fast enough for your symptoms to be real.

    It takes like 4-6 weeks to even get the libido sides (if you get them)

    You can get the DHT effects at 0.25-0.5mg, you don't need 1mg or God forbid 5mg. The sexual side effects are more prevalent at higher dosages but the hair efficiency doesn't amplify at all after 0.25mg.

    The problem people have with fin is that sides are individual. You might get sides on the first dose, the 5th, the 50th, or never.
    I've ben on fin for 1.5 years and never got any sides, still have all my hair.
    Other people take a dose of fin and their dick shuts off for life.

    Either it starts within 3 months or not at all as the incidence of side effects gets lower over time. Just push through until your hormones stabilize and enjoy your hair and confidence.
