I would advise you to continue with the treatment without worrying about side effects. Firstly the side effects mentioned with the drugs are not frequently seen specially with finesteride 1 mg dose. If at all any decrease in libido is seen it is more or less psychological due to stress
and if it is due to the drug it is completely reversible once the drug is stopped. Minoxidil
as such has no serious common side effects. It can lead to mild itching, redness
or stinging sensation. However it should be used cautiously in hypertensives on medication. So do not worry, continue with your doctor's prescription and discuss doubts with your consulting dermatologist
. Take care.
