Hi Doc. i’ve been on finasteride 1mg for 3yrs without major sides just an increased in body hair. i quit for 2yrs and now my hair has thinned so much that i’ve started fin again. now will i get sides this time? or should i expect the same.
Increased body hair from finasteride is not a common side effect I have seen, but I have been asked about it before. I have seen decreased body hair in a couple patients over the years.
If you restart the medication I cannot say if you will get the same side effect. You should follow up with your doctor.
