I’m Terrified to Use My Prescription for Finasteride

Ive been sitting with my prescription to fin all week and not taken it because Im terrified of the side effects. Ive been doing a ton of reading on it and it seems any side effect is rare. Im also legitimately seeing regrowth in my buddy who told me to go for it. How often have you seen side effects with this over the years? What are some things I should look for should I give in and start?

Im not sure why I am so worried.

If you talk yourself into side effect, the side effects will be 100% nocebo type effect. But if you did as my son did (he just took it and never gave it a thought), he did notice in a week that his sex drive increased significantly and he then called me about it. Normally, negative side effects, when you subtract the placebo group, is under 2% of men taking the drug.
