Hi, I’m 18 and I’m about to go on Propecia. If I were to experience side effects, how soon would I be experiencing them? (within the first month)
If I do indeed see side effects, should I ‘push through’ them to see if my hormones re-adjust, or should I stop immediately?
Side effects from drugs can show up any time, though generally within the first week to month. Depending on the side effect, some people on Propecia continued to take it and the side effects subsided. Some take half the dose and the side effects subsided. Some just stopped taking and the side effects subsided.
The decision to start or stop the medication is for you and your doctor to make. Remember, it’s a prescription medication so keep an open line of communication with your prescribing doctor.
