My bad. Let me adjust my rhetorical framework...Are we talking mental side effects, physical side effects or some combination of the two?

 :P

breast enlargement
decreased ejaculate volume
ejaculation dysfunction
gynecomastia
impotence (erectile dysfunction)
libido decrease
oligospermia
rash (unspecified)
secondary malignancy
spermatogenesis inhibition
teratogenesis

Good times....

though  it will have a positive effect on the ol' prostate. ;)

I have a keen interest in medical side effects. I never watch TV, but if I happen to catch a drug commercial with the rushed and garbled laundry list of horrible side effects at the end (all spoken sotto voce), I am one happy camper.

Great list. Tip top.

They're not that rare.  And Rogaine doesn't make your hair stick up.

according to most sources, the side effects affect less than one percent of people who take propecia. and tell my sophomore year roommate that rogain doesn't make your hair stick up.

It's more like 1.5-2% for the sexual side effects but placebo wasn't much better (0.9%).  On the other hand basically everyone experiences a decrease in fertility related parameters.  That's not surprising though as DHT stimulates spermatogenesis and propecia blocks DHT formation.  Rogaine and Propecia work by entirely different mechanisms and they certainly are not an either/or proposition.

Yay!  I'm not the oldest!  Close, though.

Not as close as you might think...

Well, I guess I take the cake. I will be 53 when I graduate from the University of Texas at Austin.

I tried Propecia and I felt out of it at times, so I stopped.  Who knows why.  I'm generally fine with Rogaine.  I guess everything affects people differently.

Yeah...but get there early because after taxes and penalties for withdrawing his 401k early he will only have enough left for one keg...
