damn, do i got it....yes, propecia (especially after quitting!) has definitely changed my cognitive thinking in a very scary way....i am not the same person i was before taking this ****...a very dangerous drug and one that will eventually(hopefully soon) be taken to court and off the market.
it crosses the blood brain barrier..alters neurons and neurotransmitters....proven by research not supported by merck(not surprising). i've had panic attacks, heart palpitations and confusion from this poison...10 months off and still screwed up!  it is a very complex and scary drug.....stay away from anything that messes with mother nature's plan for your hair my friend!

still don't buy it?...go ahead son, play some roulette and find out....
