    I recently started finasteride and one of the potential side effects is weight gain. I already have a bit more fat than I'd like and I'm worried about gaining more and have started obsessively checking my figure even though it's been less than a week.

    Finasteride users: Did you experience weight gain? How much? How soon?

    Thanks!

    (Sorry about the typo in the thread title. I can't seem to fix it ...)

    I took Finasteride 2.5 mg over a period of six months and experienced no weight gain. Honestly at this point I would rather be a little full with hair than skinny without. I can lose weight rather well if I work towards it, but can’t do much to affect my hair.

    I take dutasteride and haven't had any problems with gaining weight.
