Like many men with male pattern baldness, you used Propecia to help re-grow hair. That is what it’s supposed to do. Propecia, also called finasteride, is a drug used to treat male pattern baldness, the loss of hair on the scalp. It was developed to treat male pattern hair loss by blocking the body’s production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth. It has not been shown to treat thinning hair at the temples, and is not used to treat hair loss in women or children.
Propecia Side Effects
Unfortunately, you may now be dealing with unexpected Propecia problems. While Propecia is effective for slowing hair loss in some men, it has also been shown to subject those taking it to side effects, including:
- Sexual dysfunction
- Erectile dysfunction
- Male Infertility
- Breast enlargement and even breast cancer in men
Worse, recent studies have shown that these side effects may continue long after you stop taking the medication. These long term effects may require long-term treatments.
