I’ve heard horror stories about people who took finastride and ended up with permanent or long term side effects. I don’t take finastride but I’ve taken DIM and it can inhibit 5-alpha reductase according to this article. So I’m wondering if I should keep taking it or not. I took 1200mg in 3 days and here is what I noticed:
My acne cleared out.
My beard growth slowed down (This is a big bonus for me.)
My skin quality improved.
I lost a little of my chest hair.
My ED caused by a high E2 got slightly better.
These all sound good but I’m afraid if I take it regularly it may decrease my DHT through its 5-alpha reductase inhibiting role.
