Unfortunately, nothing I’ve tried has yielded positive benefits, and so I’m at a loss on how to move forward.
I am 20 years old and developed a relatively severe case of PFS in the summer of 2015 after taking about a week’s worth of pills. My symptoms include debilitating brain fog and cognitive shift, muscle atrophy and weakness, fatigue, low mood, low energy, many sexual symptoms (although these are the least of my worries due to the severity of other symptoms), low body temperature, and some others. Unfortunately, not much has gotten better for me as I approach 1.5 years off Propecia. I live in New York City and attend NYU for finance. I have tried a number of therapies under the supervision of Dr. Jacobs here in New York as well as my father who is a gastroenterologist. We have been very careful and considerate in the things that we have tried, and I always take an unbiased perspective to limit any placebo effect that I might be experiencing from these therapies. Unfortunately, nothing I’ve tried has yielded positive benefits, and so I’m at a loss on how to move forward. [… ] I am oftentimes very doubtful of the future.
