Hi, i started taking finasteride around august 2012, and half a year later i got chronic sore throat. The pain starts when i talk, and my question is could finasteride cause this? Or do i have a low immunity like my gp suggested.
I got antibiotics which helped greatly but after a week it was all pain again. What is your opinion about this? Finasteride or weak immunity.
A sore throat and finasteride are unrelated, unless perhaps you have some sort of allergy to the pill. If you didn’t experience anything for the first 6 months of taking it though, I think it would be highly unlikely that it was even an allergy. I’d follow your GP’s suggestion about low immunity (which is also not caused by finasteride).
If you really think it is finasteride, then consult with your doctor about stopping the medication.
