How to reduce side effects of Finasteride

11 November 2021
2-minute read

While the side effects that can appear after using Finasteride are extremely rare, it’s still a good idea to limit the chances of them occurring. With a few routine changes, you can make your body the perfect foundation for Finasteride to get to work, while potentially mitigating any side effects that could pop up. To get you started, here are some of our top recommendations for potentially limiting the side effects of Finasteride.

Improving your diet

The food you decide to put in your tank has a huge impact on every part of your body and mind. While there isn’t a whole lot you can do to minimise finasteride side effects, eating a healthy, balanced diet could give the medication the perfect foundation to work from. Greens, fruit and plenty of good quality fish could have an important positive impact on your body during the treatment process. Not only could this lower your chances of side effects, but it may also increase your chances of the treatment being a success. It may also be worth getting in touch with your GP or dietician, in order to take full advantage of the benefits that can be gained from a healthy diet.

Sticking by your daily routine

Taking your daily dose of Finasteride consistently over a sustained period of time is key for the potential success of your treatment. On top of that, a variety of Finasteride side effects have been shown to wear off after a month of dosage, as your body becomes accustomed to the medication. Remember - while the rare sexual side effects of Finasteride have been rumoured to be permanent, this isn’t the case at all. If you’re experiencing sexual side effects from Finasteride, stopping your dosage has been shown to return things back to normal.

Exercising regularly

Whether you’re using Finasteride or not, exercising daily is a no-brainer. When coupled with a healthy diet, there may be a chance that keeping your body active and moving could help to limit some Finasteride side effects. Research has shown that regular, daily exercise has the ability to boost sex drive and improve your sexual wellbeing. While they may be rare, the potential sexual side effects of Finasteride could be dampened by sustained exercise during your treatment.

Ultimately, it’s always important to bear in mind that Finasteride is one of the most studied medications around and side effects are both well known and a rare occurrence. Less than 4% of users will experience Finasteride side effects, with the majority clearing up upon cessation and when stopping consumption. While there may not be a huge amount you can do to stop side effects, taking the time to build up your overall health could potentially lower those chances, as well as improving the results on your head.
