    TLDR Finasteride may cause suicidal thoughts and mental side effects, especially in young people with hair loss.
    A study suggests that there may be a link between finasteride use and suicidality and psychological adverse events, especially in younger patients and those using the drug for alopecia. Healthcare providers should monitor patients closely for these potential side effects. Further research is needed to fully understand the potential risks and benefits of finasteride use.
