If this does not convince you to take propecia / avodart, nothing will (Drugs & Medications)

» i can not beleive that some people will go around advertising propecia
» when it has been proven and re-proven that it does not work

Hello can you post some evidence that it does not work. The studies clearly point out one thing consistently - and that is it DOES work. Hair count and hair shaft diameter for MPB patients taking propecia increases and then stays largely stable whereas those not on the drug experience rapid decline in both areas.

» many men now experiencing secondary hypogonadism and early Male Andropause
» (low testosterone/DHT, high Estrogens, low LH/FSH)
» Many men have been left with decreased semen volume, shrunken penis/nuts,
» impotence, Peyronie's Disease (crooked penis), decreased mental capacity
» and total loss of sex drive,

I've seen a list a alleged symptoms a mile longer than the one you posted. A large scale double blind study on propecia's effect on sexual health was conducted and it turns out the placebo group reported a laundry list of problems far greater than the group given the drug.

I've been on this board a long time and I know how quickly mass hysteria spreads. If you want to see the effect of hypochondria, just post a message here with the title "Propecia Made Me Blind !!!" and watch how many people start reporting blurred vision and difficulty seeing within a couple of weeks. I remember one guy after reading a particularly heavy load of messages one week on propecia related sexual side effects reported he turned gay due to taking the drug! If there's one thing I've learnt its NOT to trust paranoid ramblings but stick to the double blind studies.

Merely reading one or two papers here and there and cobbling together a conclusion is not sound.

» DHT is a vital male hormone

I've been taking it for 7 years. If it was vital, why haven't I had any problems? I was having far greater problems (like feelings of hopelessness and suicide) losing my hair and I credit this drug for saving my life. I understand each person has a slightly different body chemistry and genetics and the drug may not agree with you. But please don't paint us all with the same broad brush stroke.
