So I have been taking Finasteride 1mg daily and minoxidil 1ml twice a day for the past 2 months now. I thought I was experiencing brain fog as a side effect for awhile and denied it for a bit. I go to look up what brain fog is and it has more to do with confusion. What I’m experiencing feels more like an irl motion blur of sorts and as far as I know I’m experiencing no forms of confusion (or more than regular at least as I have adhd to begin with). Can this be classified as brain fog? Can this be caused by Finasteride or minoxidil? It seems to start every time I get to work and lasts for 3-5 hours and it’s really not that bad but its noticeable.

Brain fog has been reported with finasteride, but not minoxidil. I would try to meet with your prescribing doctor to discuss this ‘brain fog’ as it may not be what you think.
