I am a 51 y/o male. I have been taking Finasteride for the past 4 yrs. I also take Lovastatin for my cholesterol. My latest blood test showed elevated levels of Bilirubin. My doctor stated that it might be from the Finastride and that it is a possible side effect of the drug. I can’t find any info on this claim and I find it hard to believe that it all of a sudden is causing this.
Can you help me? I don’t want to stop taking the Finasteride and lose the results. I also must add that Dr. Pak did a procedure on me just about 2 yrs. ago and I love the results. Thank You.
I’m glad you are enjoying the results of your hair transplant!
I would ask your doctor to look for another cause of liver dysfunction. I have not heard or read about finasteride causing this type of problem. Lovastatin and similar medications do report elevated bilirubin levels as a possible side effect, however.
