I have a history of severe depression. Will finasteride harm me?
With a history of depression, you need to discuss taking finasteride with your doctor. There are potential side effects with people who have a history of severe depression so great caution should be exercised when taking this drug and a close supervision of your doctor is important. I have written a post on this subject here: https://newhair.com/baldingblog/2017/05/23/finasteride-can-increase-depression-increase-actions-self-harm/
