Does the Hair Loss Treatment Propecia (Finasteride) Cause Permanent Sexual Side Effects? - Thursday, February 16, 2012
Are the rumors circulating online about Propecia causing permanent sexual side effects true?
While there has been a lot in the media lately regarding the side
effects of finasteride, it’s important to note that Propecia has been
used effectively by many thousands of balding men for the treatment of male
pattern hair loss since it was first approved in 1997.
Though many questions have arisen regarding its safety, based on
years of real-world experience, most hair restoration physicians still
recommend Propecia to their male patients.
We are keeping abreast of the latest developments and, until such
time as the FDA reverses its approval of Propecia, we have seen no
evidence to contradict their original findings.
