Dr. Rassman PLEASE help, I was planning on sticking with fin but this morning after taking fin I had the worst brain fog and memory problems I’ve ever had. I’m working on becoming an MD so I have a lot to read and yet I couldn’t read, or focus on anything. I have an extremely careful diet and exercises regularly and this has never happened. I think I’m going to stop using fin but the brain fog won’t leave and it’s been over 15 hours. What do I do? Is there blood work that would help?
Stopping the finasteride is critical here. It may take a few weeks for the brain fog to go away. It stays in your body’s tissues for a few weeks, lessening each week until it is gone within about a month or less. You should have a doctor managing this problem for you. I can’t be that doctor over the internet.
