Brain Fog on Finasteride, Maybe Nocebo Effect!

Since we’ve last spoken, my condition has significantly bettered. My sexual function is comparable to my base line(pre-finasteride). However, I had to play with the frequency and dosing to get to this position.  I’m now at a lower dose, however, I am showing symptoms similar to what most believe to be brain fog/diminished cognitive ability. However, I think that this may be a nocebo effect as I’ve since lowered my dosage, this decreases the plasma and serum concentrations of the drug.  In regards to such, it would make sense that my onset for the diminished cognitive function would occur when I was at a higher dose, and not at the one I’m at now.

Let me know your new dose and if the Brain Fog goes away in the next few weeks.
