    Hi girls

    So I started Spironolactone a year ago and within 1 month I gained weight cellulite everywhere!!! I stopped Spironolactone immediately
    A year later I saw a different dermatologist who prescribed me Finastride
    I have it in my cupboard but so afraid to start using it from adverse side effects, should I ? What was your full experience with finasteride alone?

    I have researched a lot about onion juice
    I tried it few weeks and amazingly got some complements on my hair and that it looks different

    Due to laziness and smell I somewhat put it aside( it’s way easier to just swallow s pill)anyone tried it long term?

    Were you on 200 mg of Spironolactone? I have taken it for six months. Have noticed small weight gain but I didn’t Attribute it to the medication. I was having foot cramps, but my potassium levels were fine. Because of that I decreased to 100mg but 200 mg is the recommended dose for hair last. My dermatologist yesterday recommended 200 mg Spironolactone daily along with finesteride as well as Rogaine
