Propecia Side Effects
Finasteride is manufactured by international pharmaceutical giant Merck and sold as Propecia, Proscar in the U.S. market. The drug is part of a class of synthetic pharmaceuticals used to inhibit the enzyme the body uses to convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Finasteride drugs such as Propecia, Proscar and Avodart (by GlaxoSmithKline) are commonly prescribed to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and male pattern baldness (MPB).

Finasteride Products Controversy
In recent years, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has begun investigating increased reports of serious and unknown side effects among males using finasteride products to alleviate male pattern baldness. These side effects include:
- Gynecomastia, enlarged breasts leading to increased risk of male breast cancer
- Erectile dysfunction and impotence
- Reduced libido
Unfortunately, the side effects do not necessarily abate after stopping finasteride drugs. The effects can be devastating and permanent.
