If someone with some form of TMJ, attention deficit or glutamate
excitotoxicity experienced a severe worsening of symptoms when taking a
5AR inhibitor, would you attribute that then to some neurological
function performed by 5AR itself?
I have communicated with people who took even low dose finasteride and
experienced, consistently, very palpable differences in the way they
felt while drinking.
