Long term effects of finasteride? – WRassman,M.D. BaldingBlog

If I read correctly, Fin is not linked to cancer? This was just a misconception? Are there any other long term health side effects aside from mood and ED?

You are correct. Most focused side effects have been focused on sexual side effects from finasteride. There are also depression, anxiety and cognitive complaints (brain fog) reported as well. Many of these symptoms go away when the drug is stopped; however, it sometimes takes months for full reversal. There are reports of Post Finasteride Syndrome where these side effects never go away. In more than 10,000 prescriptions that my group has written since the drug came out, I have never seen a case of Post Finasteride Syndrome in a normal person.  There is also no cancer reported from this drug. In fact, there is a reduction in the risk of prostate cancer from me on this drug by 25%.
