Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Lost three inches off my height in the two years I took finasteride. Only took a daily 1mg dose. I have no disk material between my L-4 - L5 and between my L5 - S1. I used to be 6'2" and now I am barely 5'11". I was conclusively 6'2" from a doctor wellness exam a little more than 2 years ago and I am having to go in to get spinal surgery within the next month because my lack of disk material is damaging my nerves that go into my legs. I go between being completely numb in my legs to being in complete pain.

  • Suspicion that general muscle pain is caused by meds. Both Tylenol and Tramadol are taken TID to QID rather than PRN.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Stopped the use of Axiron approximately 10 days ago. Have had two episodes of dizziness, rapid heat-beat and severe sweating lasting approximately 30 minutes each time. Heart rate returned to normal pattern after each episode. Stopped using Axiron because of the negative publicity by the parasite legal community.
