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

Hi Freddie555,
coincidentally I am the one who reported serious eyes problem as a potential propecia side effect here ;-)
I am glad to read you have absolutely no problems and I must admit I was almost amused by so many worried people who affraid of side effects of finasteride in past when I was considering taking propecia two years ago. I thought that these problems are only in minds of that people and not in reality, just like you. I have to tell I was almost sure I won´t be the one who will have any problems and coudn´t imagine that will sometimes stop my finasteride treatment. After two pills the serious problem with my eye started and now I have an irreversibly damaged part of my central vission, where I can really see nothing and which can (or can´t) progress to practical blindness in this eye sometimes in the future (wet and dry macular degeneration). It occured in the age of 24! So now I am really not so amused. Keep in mind I am absolutely not telling it had to be caused by finasteride, actually I don´t believe it, and I wish it was only a coincidence. Some doctors told me the the fist impulse could come of propecia (but only by considering the timeline) others refused it. It sounds really incredible to me that just I must be the one of millions who really have some serious side effect caused by finasteride and I still can´t admit it.

Because I am NW2- now with miniaturization in hairline (father and grandfather NW7), I know that if I want my hair to keep on my head, finasteride/dutasteride treatment is the only option right now. I am still not going to give it up! But first to minimalize the risk I have to be insured by asking, inquiring, bothering, suplicating, begging for an answers of ocular specialists over the world, if that f-ing propecia could caused something like this or not. It is really hopeless to know there is a treatment which can keep hair (the twins are great example) and help to avoid that -as you mentioned- feelings of hopelessness and suicide but on the other hand at least in my case can (or can´t) caused seroius health problem. It is really hard not to know the true.

Despite I still think propecia is THE ONLY REAL OPTION how to battle against hairloss with minimum cases of side effects and so don´t be considering my post as a spreading of some hysteria against it.

sorry for my english but I hope you understand what I wanted to tell.
