    my dermo wants to put me on finastride
    even though i begged her to try flutamide first but she refused

    i’m really scared to gain weight

    anyone felt weight gain from it? mood change? breast growth?

    Your sermon?

    I think the side effects are negligible from Finasteride, for women. But individual, I'm sure. I'm probably going to try it, soon (topical), so I'll know soon...!

    I don't know much about flutamide to treat hair loss. Where did you hear about it?

    It makes me very bloated and I believe it has caused a small amount of weight gain. I kinda feel like garbage on it to be honest and I admit I don't take it every day because of this.

    Thank you
    Do you feel it helps with the hair loss?
    Also, do you get any dry skin on the face?

    (Sorry for the late reply. I'm sort of a sporadic poster).

    It has helped a bit with my receding temples but not with my diffuse hairloss. I have not had any dry skin on my face. ;)
