    Anyone out there take Propecia before they got ill?

    I'm thinking that if Propecia can ' block the metabolism of progesterone (PROG) and/or testosterone (T)' http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24717976 this would not be a good thing during viral attack since-

    'In both CNS and PNS, myelin formation is also under the influence of progesterone' http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3274763/

    I'm scrambling these associations together out of fear rather than sound reasoning. The Zeineh brain scans - https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-n...bnormalities-in-chronic-fatigue-patients.html showing decreased white matter in me/cfs patients has me scared that playing around with drugs that affect neurosteroids is not such a good idea.

    Don't know if it would contribute to M.E./CFS but definitely not worth using in any respect anyways. The body needs Androgens and DHT which propecia works by blocking to halt hair loss. There are far better and less risky treatments on the verizon for Male and Female pattern baldness.

    For over decade there's been Propecia patients complaining of side effects such as "brain fog" among others. This drug has ruined many lives.

    All you've gotta do is Google Propecia Depersonalization to see it for yourself.

    E.g
    http://www.propeciahelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5664

    Interestingly the induced symptoms from taking this drug are somewhat similar to CFS.

    Symptoms list from post-Propecia syndrome:
