PERSISTENT SEXUAL SIDE EFFECTS OF FINASTERIDE (PROPECIA) FOR MALE PATTERN HAIR LOSS
 
03:55
Dr. Michael S. Irwig from George Washington University has published a study on persistent Finasteride (Propecia) side effects in young men aged 21-46. Study published March 18, 2011: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1743-6109.2011.02255.x/abstract ------ http://gwtoday.gwu.edu/people/adrugsunintendedconsequences A recent study by GW Professor Michael S. Irwig reveals persistent and possibly permanent side effects associated with a common hair loss drug. Men taking medication for hair loss may suffer from prolonged and possibly irreversible sexual dysfunction, according to a recent study by Assistant Professor of Medicine Michael S. Irwig. The study, recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, reveals that finasteride--an antiandrogen that treats hair loss and is found in popular male pattern baldness drug Propecia--can cause persistent sexual dysfunction, including low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction and problems with orgasms. While labeling on the medication in the U.S. currently warns about possible reversible sexual side effects, there is no reference to the effects being persistent, says Dr. Irwig, who conducted the study along with Swapna Kolukula of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. Other countries, including the United Kingdom and Sweden, have documented persistent risks and required medical companies to include them in labeling. Dr. Irwig first became aware of the problems caused by finasteride several years ago when he encountered several men who reported they had developed sexual dysfunction while taking the medication. "It's been very frustrating for a lot of these men because they've sought care from medical professionals who have looked at the literature and have not seen a risk of persistent sexual dysfunction," says Dr. Irwig. "So a lot of these patients have been told to see psychiatrists and psychologists and that it's all in their head." Dr. Irwig then noticed that men had reported sexual dysfunction for months after they stopped taking the medication. "I came across a website called propeciahelp.com with more than 1,400 registered users—many young healthy men who developed the same sexual side effects from finasteride—and I discovered that nobody had published a series looking at these men—who they are, how long the sexual side effects lasted, what types." Dr. Irwig's study included results from interviews with 71 men aged 21 to 46 years old to assess how long they took finasteride, the type and duration of sexual side effects and their sexual frequency before and after the medication. Dr. Irwig discovered that 94 percent developed low libido, 92 percent developed erectile dysfunction and decreased arousal, and 69 percent developed problems with orgasm. On average, the men used finasteride for approximately 28 months but experienced persistent sexual side effects for an average of 40 months, from the time they ceased taking the medication to the time of the interview. Dr. Irwig also found that the average number of sexual episodes per month dropped after finasteride use. "It turns out that almost all the men had multiple sexual function problems," says Dr. Irwig. "Before finasteride use, the men experienced average sexual activity of approximately 26 episodes per month, but after use, it came down to approximately eight per month —an almost two-thirds reduction." "Twenty percent of patients I interviewed experienced persistent sexual dysfunction for more than five years, which makes me wonder if their persistent sexual dysfunction is permanent," he adds. Dr. Irwig says roughly 5 percent of men who take medicine will experience sexual dysfunction, but that "out of that 5 percent, it's hard to tell how many will experience persistent symptoms." "We know that this is a potential problem, but we can't quantify what the exact risk is. I can't tell a man if he has a 1-in-100 chance, or a 1-in-1000 chance of developing persistent sexual dysfunction, but it's pretty clear there's a relationship here," he says. Topical Rogaine can be used as an alternative to Propecia —applied directly on the skin, it does not get absorbed by body and thus does not cause sexual side effects—but Dr. Irwig says Propecia is very effective in treating hair loss and thus is commonly prescribed. So Dr. Irwig says it is crucial physicians treating male pattern hair loss discuss the possibility of persistent sexual side effects associated with finasteride with their patients. "I think it's very important that doctors who are prescribing this medicine talk about potential risks, so men can make an informed decision," he says. =============== For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad, M.D. reviews his concerns in this video, and explains how there is no significant consensus among physicians regarding the prevalence of long-term, permanent sexual side-effects after the medication has been ceased, so further investigation is needed, as well as the alternatives to finasteride: 0:51 — Dr. Prasad details his background training in cosmetic oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as his experience as a hair loss specialist and founder of the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration Centers 1:30 — Dr. Prasad discusses the unclear causal relationship between finasteride and the resulting occurrence of sexual side effects in men 4:38 — Dr. Prasad talks about the use of ACellular matrix for the improvement of hair transplant results, and how a side effect of this treatment caused thinning hairs to grow back thicker 5:45 — How Hair Regeneration often requires only a single injection and how it can successfully stop hair loss progression and induce the shedding of thinning hair and the regrowth of thicker hair 6:50 — Dr. Prasad explains how it is statistically unlikely to incur long-term problems sexual function with finasteride; and how his patients who have incurred sexual side effects were able to return to normal after stopping the medication CONNECT WITH US!

I STOPPED Taking Finasteride/Propecia!! - Finasteride Review
 
12:44
Hey guys, welcome to my channel. As of today, I have stopped the use of finasteride. I thought that I would never make this kind of video, but felt that I had to share this with my viewers. This video might become a bit lengthy but please watch it as I will cover extremely important things and I hope that whoever watches this will take into account of the research that has been done on finasteride/dutasteride and truly reconsider taking this harmful medication. I know that the topic regarding finasteride is very controversial and is one of the most talked about topics all over the hair loss forums. There is a mixed review from people who suffer from various side effects from finasteride, ranging from sexual dysfunction to depression and even permanent side effects, which other users seem to have no issues from using the medication. Before I get started, please be advised that this video is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice. You should always seek the advice of a medical professional before taking finasteride or any type of medication. This video is simply based on my personal opinion as well as research that I have done online that has led me to this decision, so I am not trying to stop or encourage anyone to take finasteride, but rather to expose the information that I have gathered. Based on my research and opinion, there’s too much of a risk when taking finasteride or dutasteride when taking it to treat hair loss. Side effects such as sexual dysfunction, depression, and CNS issues which may be persisistent and even permanent need to be carefully weighed before considering taking the finasteride. =========================== Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4064044/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1pb4RSGe_E&t=57s Post-Finasteride Syndrome Foundation - http://www.pfsfoundation.org ======================== Welcome to my Youtube channel Hairliciously. In this channel, I will be taking you on a journey of my FUE hair transplant progress. Towards the end of November 2016, I had a 1700 FUE hair transplant done in South Korea to lower my hairline and to fill in my receding temples. The FUE hair transplant procedure took me about 7-8 hours to complete and cost me approximately $5000 USD. I will be doing daily updates on my hair transplant progress, so feel free to subscribe and ask any questions you have. Thanks for visiting! Please like, comment and subscribe! :) My website: https://www.Hairliciously.com My hair transplant clinic: http://www.motionclinic.co.kr Free music: https://www.Bensound.com ======================================= Products I am using to supplement my FUE hair transplant: 1. Finasteride 1mg/day (generic brand for Propecia/Proscar) - Finasteride is approved by the FDA for male pattern baldness and is effective in slowing hair loss for me - Stopped as of 4/10/2017 2. Biotin 10,000mcg/day - Biotin is effective in thickening hair, nails, and beautifying the skin. I've noticed thicker and stronger hair after using Biotin for the past few months. 3. Vitamin D 3,000IU/day - Vitamin D helps maintain a healthy body 4. Minoxidil (Rogaine) - Minoxidil slows hair loss progression and promotes hair regrowth. I've noticed that using Minoxidil helped me grow my transplanted hairs a lot more quicker.

How To Take Finasteride (Propecia) Without Side Effects
 
07:02
One of the best FDA-approved hair loss medications on the market to slow down male pattern baldness is finasteride, also known as Propecia. Finasteride works by blocking testosterone from converting into DHT. Studies show that up to 86% of people using 1mg of finasteride daily did not experience any more hair loss since the start of the prescription. Despite the effectiveness of finasteride, many people over the years have complained of numerous side effects, ranging from sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction and low libido to even depression. Finasteride is such a great drug for balding males but many have been turned off by it’s many side effects. I’ve been taking finasteride since my first hair transplant in Nov. 2016 and have yet to have any side effects. In this video, I will try to explain how you can take finasteride without having any side effects. Please note that I do not have any side effects from finasteride and the following information is from research that i have gathered online and from other user’s personal experience with finasteride. also, Before trying any of the following methods, please make sure to first consult with your doctor for proper medical advice. 1. Some users of finasteride claim that lowering the dosage from 1mg to 0.2mg has reduced or eliminated the side effects of finasteride. An medical study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) revealed that taking finasteride at dosages of 0.2mg/day or higher was still effective in treating male pattern baldness, although it wasn’t as effective as taking the 1mg pill. this will lower the efficacy of the drug, but many will agree that something is always better than nothing. I’ll leave the link to the scientific study so that you can read about it if interested. 2. For those individuals who have been looking for a safer way to take finasteride, a topical form is now available. Many claim that it halts the progression of male pattern baldness effectively, with little chance of any unwanted side effects due to the minimal absorption into the rest of the body. The only bad thing is that finasteride is not as easily available to find in topical solution. However, customers in Canada can obtain a prescription for topical finasteride from hair transplant surgery Hasson&Wong, or if you based in Europe, you can purchase it online. 3. Finasteride works by eliminating testosterone from converting to DHT. If we eliminate DHT, it gives the body a chance for estrogen to dominate, which causes hormonal imbalances that may actually be the cause of unwanted side effects from taking finasteride, not from the drug itself. If a male’s estrogen level goes out of range, this can cause symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, depression, etc. The key here is to ensure that estrogen does not increase. Zinc has been known to prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Calcium D Glucarate also removes excess estrogen from the body. Indole-3-Carbinol is another strong excess estrogen eliminator that is found in veggies such as broccoli.

Propecia Risks Long-Term Impotence - BBC Radio 1
 
02:35
BBC Radio 1 reports on the ongoing struggle many men worldwide are faced with after sustaining crippling long-term side effects from Propecia. BBC Journalist Simon Mundie details the story of one young man named James who took Propecia for a brief while and experienced a host of side effects, including impotence and hormonal imbalances. Despite quitting the drug, years later James - like many other men - is still living with a wide range of serious symptoms which have severely compromised his quality of life. Although they have changed the drug's labeling multiple times since it's release to warn consumers of long-term impotence risks, infertility and depression, Merck fails to address the growing demographic stuck with this illness, whom were convinced by the company that the drug was harmless.

Hair-Growth Drug Linked to Erectile Dysfunction That Lasts for Years
 
03:43
Welcome to News 24/7 Youtube Channel. Subscribe and follow for more videos. Young men who take drugs to treat hair loss or an enlarged prostate may experience an unwanted side effect — erectile dysfunction — and the problem can persist long after these men stop taking the drugs, a new study finds. Men under age 42 in the study who took one of these drugs for more than 205 days were nearly five times more likely to have long-term erectile dysfunction than men who took the drug for less than 205 days, according to the study. One of the drugs in the study was finasteride, which is sold under the brand names Propecia and Proscar. Finasteride affects how cells make testosterone; it may be taken for hair growth or to shrink the prostate.The other drug, dutasteride, is taken to shrink an enlarged prostate. It is sold under the brand name Avodart and is one of the drugs in the medication Jalyn. The new findings linking these drugs to debilitating sexual dysfunction should be of particular interest to prescribers and patients, senior study author Dr. Steven Belknap, a research assistant professor of dermatology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, said in a statement. "Our study shows [that] men who take finasteride or dutasteride can get persistent erectile dysfunction, in which they will not be able to have normal erections for months or years after stopping finasteride or dutasteride," Belknap said. In the new study, which was published today (March 9) in the journal PeerJ, the researchers looked at data on more than 12,000 men in the Northwestern Medicine Enterprise Data Warehouse, a database of medical records for patients treated at Northwestern Medicine. They focused on men ages 16 to 89 who had been prescribed one of the drugs at least once from 1992 to 2013. The researchers looked at the both the dosage of the drugs that the men were prescribed and the length of time they took the medications. In addition, they looked for any diagnoses of sexual dysfunction, such as low libido, erectile dysfunction and persistent erectile dysfunction. Results showed that 167 of the men (1.4 percent) who took either finasteride or dutasteride developed erectile dysfunction that lasted for a median of about three and a half years after they stopped taking the drug. In men ages 16 to 42, the length of time that the men took either of the drugs was a better predictor of their risk of persistent erectile dysfunction than other factors, such as the dosage of the drug, the researchers found. That length of time was also a better predictor than other medical conditions that have been linked with erectile dysfunction, such diabetes or hypertension according to the study. Among the men in this age group who developed erectile dysfunction after taking the drugs, the median duration of their ED was about four years, the researchers found. Both finasteride and dutasteride work by blocking the conversion of the hormone testosterone into its more active form, 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT can contribute to male pattern baldness because it dampens another chemical signal in the body that fuels hair-cell growth. In a meta-analysis published in 2015 in the journal JAMA Dermatology, the same group of researchers found there was not enough evidence to establish that finasteride was safe to take for hair-loss treatment in men.

Finasteride 2 years review | Propecia and Proscar for hair loss
 
02:48
I have more than 2 years experience with Finasteride that is sold under the brandname Propecia. Now I would like to share with you guys my review. Finasteride or propecia is amont the most potent and effective products for dealing with hair loss. Especially male pattern baldness could be avoided by using finateride or propecia. But Finasteride or Propecia has side effects which you should also know. Erectile dysfunction is one of finasterides side effect and you use arginin, a amino acid, in order to deal with such issues. Proscar is an other brand for Finasteride is actually not for hair loss. Subscribe to my channel!

Do Finasteride have any side effects? - Dr. K Prapanna Arya
 
01:33
The side effects of finasteride 1 mg is uncommon are fortunately reversible. In men taking finasteride only 3.8% only experience any sexual side effects like loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. The side effects of finasteride are reversed when you discontinue the therapy. In 58% of men who continue the treatment. If you are skeptical of the side effects of finasteride, it is advised to take quarter or half a pill of 1mg finasteride for several weeks. If there are side effects with this lower dose, you can consider taking 1 mg finasteride. But if you observe some side effects with the lower dosage, it is better to abandon the treatment immediately. When finasteride is discontinued, the hair which is gained will be lost when you stop the medicine you will get back to the same level of baldness before taking finasteride.
PROPECIA (FINASTERIDE) PERSISTENT SEXUAL SIDE EFFECTS -- CBS Chicago News Report
 
03:10
Hair Loss Drug 'Under Fire' For Sexual Side-Effects http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/05/11/hair-loss-drug-under-fire-for-sexual-side-effects/ May 11, 2011 -- CHICAGO (CBS) -- It's a drug that promises to reverse hair loss for men, but is it worth the risk? As CBS 2′s Pam Zekman reports, some men say they have been devastated by a side effect of the baldness drug Propecia. "I feel like my twenties have been taken away from me and it's not fair," said one young man who asked for anonymity. "I wouldn't wish this on anybody." He was prescribed Propecia to battle his thinning hair and says sexual side effects started the first day he used the drug. "I wasn't able to get an erection or it took me a very long time," he said. "I can't maintain an erection now." At the time he started taking Propecia the insert said less than 2-percent of the men who took it had "sexual side-effects", and that those went away when the patients stopped taking the drug. But, it's been two years since Tom last took Propecia and his problem continues. "I basically feel like my penis and brain are not connected anymore," he said. That's not surprising, according to a recent study conducted by Dr. Michael Irwig of George Washington University. "The novel part about this study was that it is the first study to describe persistent sexual dysfunction after stopping the medicine where as previous studies have all reported that there have been reversible sexual side effects." Lawsuits have been filed against Merck — the maker of propecia — in both Canada and the U.S. Attorney Alan Milstein filed one of the cases. "The warnings that came with this drug did not adequately tell the potential users of the drug what to be aware of," Milstein said. Rosemary McGeady joined the lawsuit after her son Randy killed himself. "He hated all the things that the drug had done to him," said McGeady. "He hoped his family and friends would understand why he didn't want to live anymore. " Dr. Robert Brannigan, of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, says he sees half a dozen patients a year who have told him, "I went on this medication and after that I noticed these changes in my sexual health." He says there needs to be a long-term study of Propecia "It's always been a question in my mind, was this a lingering drug effect or are their other factors coming into play?" Dr. Brannigan said. As for the 22 year old young man who asked for anonymity, "I wouldn't trade my hair for not having or not being able to have sex you know, that's just kind of a no brainer." Merck recently changed the wording on their label to acknowledge reports of sexual dysfunction even after people stop taking the drug. But, a spokesman for Merck disputes the findings in Dr. Irwig's study. the spokesman says Propecia passed three clinical trials before the drug was approved and that once men stop taking Propecia the sexual side effects go away. Merck adds that they will vigorously defend themselves against the pending lawsuits. ================= For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

PERSISTENT PROPECIA / FINASTERIDE SIDE EFFECTS & SUICIDE -- CBS News Philadelphia (Health Watch)

Health Watch: Popular Drug Warning http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2011/05/03/health-watch-popular-drug-warning/ May 3, 2011 -- PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A grieving mother's warning about a popular medication, taken by millions, that can cause devastating and long term side effects. On Your Side Health Reporter Stephanie Stahl has exclusive details. "I'm going to be living the rest of my life without my son," said Rosemary of New Jersey. Her son Randy was just 22-years-old when he killed himself. His parents blame the hair loss drug PROPECIA. Randy was taking it because his curly red hair had started to recede. "It is so not worth it," said Rosemary. The warning label says there can be sexual side effects, including lack of desire and difficulty achieving an erection. They're supposed to go away when men stop taking the drug. Not for Randy, he told his parents when he stopped taking PROPECIA the impotence continued along with deepening depression. "He hated all the things that the drug had done to him. He hoped his family and friends would understand why he didn't want to live anymore," said Rosemary. Randy and scores of other men have shared their devastating discoveries on propeciahelp.com. But they're too embarrassed to show their faces. One man told us, "It basically destroyed my life. It's devastating. It's terrible. Another says, "It's not worth it, if you can't have a sex life. I feel like my twenties have been taken away from me, and it's not fair." New research from Dr. Michael Irwig at George Washington University shows some men can have persistent sexual side effects lasting five years after they stop taking PROPECIA. "The presence of persistent sexual side effects in young men who were previously completely healthy can really take a big toll on their life," said Dr. Irwig. PROPECIA works by altering hormones. Dr. Irwig suspects, in a small percentage of men, that can cause sexual dysfunction. Merck, the maker of PROPECIA, says that study is flawed. "They feel less than human because of it," said Alan Milstein, a New Jersey lawyer. He is suing Merck, on behalf of several men who claim the drug ruined their lives. "When something as essential as sexual pleasure is taken from you, it has a profound affect," said Milstein. He says Merck was not adequately warning men taking PROPECIA about the potential for long term impotence. "Whether that was done intentionally so they could make a lot of money and not scare people away, that's going to remain to be seen as this lawsuit progresses," said Milstein. Randy's parents say he tried therapy and different medications, but nothing worked. "This is really the closest thing we have to a suicide note," said Randy's father. He saved his sons postings from the PropeciaHelp website. "I'm really hoping that this drug kills me so I don't have to do it myself. I don't think my family and friends would ever understand suicide. But if they really knew what the meaningless ghostly hell I've descended into, then they would understand," read Randy's father. Merck says it will vigorously defend the lawsuits. Just two weeks ago, since we started working on this story, warning labels for PROPECIA in the United States were revised to include complaints about persistent sexual side effects. But Merck stands by its studies saying once the drug is stopped the dysfunction goes away. ============= For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

Propecia and Proscar and Lasting Serious Sexual Side Effects - NY Attorney Dan Burke Explains

While both drugs are used to treat different medical conditions, they are both inhibitors called finasterides. This compound has shown to cause serious sexual side effects for male patients. Along with a diminished sex drive, patients can suffer from erectile dysfunction, retrograde ejaculation, groin pain, and even problems achieving orgasm. Some cases have even included neurological problems including anxiety and depression. Even more disturbing is that these side effects can continue for a long time even after you stopped taking the prescription drug. One study showed that 97% of men who had stopped using the product still suffered from side effects over a year later. Watch this video now to learn more.

Possible sexual side effects for male baldness drug http://www.hlntv.com/article/2012/07/12/sexual-side-effects-drug-used-treat-m... FDA adds new warnings to finasteride, the drug used to treat male pattern baldness and enlarged prostate The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced recently that they have added new warnings to finasteride, the drug used to treat male pattern baldness and enlarged prostate. Labels for Propecia and Proscar now include an expanded list of sexual adverse events reported to the FDA, citing some side effects events have continued after the drug is no longer being used by a patient. According to their website, the changes include: - A revision to the Propecia label to include libido disorders, ejaculation disorders, and orgasm disorders that continued after discontinuation of the drug. - A revision to the Proscar label to include decreased libido that continued after discontinuation of the drug. - A revision to both the Propecia and Proscar labels to include a description of reports of male infertility and/or poor semen quality that normalized or improved after drug discontinuation. The site also says, "Despite the fact that clear causal links between finasteride (Propecia and Proscar) and sexual adverse events have NOT been established, the cases suggest a broader range of adverse effects than previously reported in patients taking these drugs." Dr. Drew noted on his HLN show Thursday night, "We don't know how long before the side effects go away. I presume they will, [but] we just don't know. So think long and hard and then talk to your doctor about these medications."

Drugs to treat hair loss and an enlarged prostate may lead to another problem, erectile dysfunction. In a few men, the problem may be permanent. Researchers at North Western Medicine looked at data on nearly 12,000 men. Those who took Finasteride or Dutasteride for a prolonged period, had an increased risk for erectile dysfunction. In some cases, the problem lasted for many months or even years after stopping the drugs. Everyone's risks are different, so it's a good idea to consult your physician before discontinuing any medications.

Propecia and Proscar to Cause Sexual Side Effects - NY Attorney Michael Werner Explains

Men who are taking the drugs Propecia or Proscar may be prone to sexual side effects. Propecia is used in the treatment for male pattern baldness while Proscar is an enlarged prostate treatment. Both of these drugs have been linked to sexual side effects such as low libido, orgasm disorders, and even infertility. But what is more concerning is that even after patients stopped using Propecia, their side effects were still apparent. Men continue to suffer these disorders long after the medication has been stopped.

Hair Care - Hair Loss - Anti-Androgens: Finasteride, Propecia, Proscar Side Effects & Hair Regrowth
 
07:57
This is where I talk about the advantages, disadvantage, benefits & side effects of using finasteride, propecia, proscar for stopping hair loss and for hair growth. Here are the video breakdown (main points): 0:54 tips about the dos and don't's when dealing with your hair loss. 1:02 I'd like to talk about finasteride, propecia and proscar today -- these are one of the only few FDA approved "products" or "treatments" that are being prescribed and recommended by doctors and dermatologists all over, they're even being openly sold over the counter at all the major pharmacies everywhere... 1:28 ask any doctor, ask any hair care expert or dermatologist on the proven methods to treat hair loss -- and they will usually give you 2 answers. That is for you to either use no.1 -- minoxidil or no.2 -- finasteride, proscar or propecia. 2:02 Finasteride (brand names Proscar and Propecia by Merck, amongst other generic names) is a synthetic drug for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and male pattern baldness (MPB). 2:24 In clinical studies, finasteride, like minoxidil, was shown to work on both the crown areas and the hairline, but is most successful in the crown area. 2:46 this drug comes with some SERIOUS side effects. 2:55 Google "finasteride side effects" and you'll easily find hundreds of cases 3:05 Side effects of finasteride mainly include, NOW CHECK THIS OUT: impotence, abnormal ejaculation, decreased ejaculatory volume, abnormal sexual function, gynecomastia, erectile dysfunction and testicular pain. 3:33 resolution occurred in men who discontinued therapy with finasteride due to these side effects and in most men who continued therapy. The PPI also states that patients have reported persisting erectile dysfunction despite discontinuing the drug. 3:55 Merck added depression as a side effect of finasteride. 4:03 An FDA panel refused to recommend approval of the drug Propecia for male pattern baldness. 4:13 Although it was not disputing its efficacy, the committee members expressed some concerns about the possibility of long-term side effects on sexual function and possibly even fertility, which arose because of some evidence of diminished ejaculate levels. 4:37 Finasteride is effective ONLY FOR AS LONG AS IT IS TAKEN; it has been clinically proven that all hair gained or maintained using this drug is lost within 6--12 months of ceasing therapy. 4:51 Just like minoxidil, the moment you stop taking it, you start losing your hair again. All of it. In some cases, you may lose even MORE hair than you previously did! 5:04 whatever the doctor tells you... stay away from this drug AT ALL COSTS! 6:02 these chemicals & drugs, although they have been proven to grow back your hair and stop hair loss, it's just not WORTH even trying them out given all the potential risks for you. 6:17 What I would recommend instead, is to go ALL NATURAL, go for something that contains NO drugs, no chemicals, something that is 100% herbal, like the ones you see at BaldingSerum.com 6:33 Whether you're suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, dandruff, scalp itchiness or even premature gray & white hair problems, it just works its magic, whatever the case.

Propecia (Finasteride) -- Undisclosed Mechanisms, Potential Dangers & Persistent Side Effects
 
09:51
Propecia (Finasteride) is a commonly-prescribed drug treatment for androgenetic alopecia (hair loss, male pattern baldness). However, unbeknownst to the general public, Propecia does much more than simply inhibit the 5-alpha reductase type-II enzyme and DHT. In this presentation we reveal additional undisclosed mechanisms of action of Finasteride, and highlight the potential dangers that can arise from use -- information and mechanisms that Propecia's manufacturer has not made available to the general public. Unfortunately, lack of disclosure regarding these mechanisms has caused many men to experience PERMANENT sexual, mental & physical side effects which can continue for months, years or someteimes indefinitely -- despite quitting the drug. Inhibition of 5AR2 metabolism, DHT and neurosteroid production (Allopregnanolone, THDOC), GABA-A receptor impairment, interference with Nitric Oxide release, prostatic involution and atrophy, persistent erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, memory impairment, cognitive dysfunction, anxiety, depression, hypogonadism, gynecomastia, low Testosterone levels, sleep impairment and penile/scrotal shrinkage are just some symptoms of the "Post-Finasteride Syndrome" -- a debilitating condition affecting an unknown number of men worldwide who have taken and since quit Finasteride. It is currently UNKNOWN why permanent side effects occur, WHO is susceptible, or HOW to successfully treat this serious adverse post-drug reaction. Given these facts, we believe in properly informing the public about the potential undisclosed risks of this medication, so that you can make a more informed decision regarding usage. Which will it be -- sacrificing your bodily health & vitality, sexual, mental and physical function for cosmetic appearance, or choosing non-5AR2 inhibitor alternatives (ie hair transplant) to succesfully treat what is ultimately an emotional concern about losing hair? The choice is yours. For more information, please visit http://www.propeciahelp.com -- UNRESOLVED Finasteride Side Effects Info & Forum.

Post Finasteride Syndrome PFS | Irreversible Side Effects of  Saw Palmetto Propecia & Proscar
 
10:28
PFS post finasteride syndrome, side effects of propecia, finasteride and proscar and saw palmetto... Basically, I have spent the last 4 years (since filming this video) dealing with this issue and I have a lot of good things that help, but no "cure" (but you may forget you have PFS). If you want my advice/guidance, then I will contact you to start your recovery program after you make a donation once I get your email: https://www.paypal.me/TrueGritUSALLC Any amount is ok but I don't have time or resources to help guys for free any more. You're always welcome to spend weeks, months and years doing your own research, experimentation, digging through forums and dealing with inept lazy careless doctors yourself if donating $50 is too much to get my regimen and help alleviate your suffering. It's a free country and no one's forcing you.
