Last month i had balloon angio of both IJVs.
As my hair is thinning/receeding a bit and my father is bald, im planning to start taking Finasteride (Propecia) to stop the thinning/balding process.
the dose is 1mg daily.
Finasteride is a synthetic antiandrogen that acts by inhibiting type II 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride was initially approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1992 under the brand name Proscar, a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In 1997, the FDA approved finasteride to treat male pattern baldness (MPB) under the brand name Propecia.
My doctor says its ok to take, but I wanted other opinions as he doesnt know anything about CCSVI
- i take 2mg ldn every night and every morning 75mg aspirin for the next 5 months
Does anyone know if Finasteride 1mg daily will have any adverse effect on CCSVI or the veins in general, and MS?
