    Finasteride works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to DHT. DHT is a powerful sex hormone that is the main culprit in causing androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness.

    Less than 2% of men experience sexual side effects while taking Propecia (finasteride). These side effects should subside with discontinuation of the medication.

    I Had a hair transplant and took propecia. The side effects were horrible experienced it all. Loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, decreased muscle mass, swelling of the breasts, lethargy (loss of energy ) suicidal depression, swollen hands, muscle spasms and memory fog…I took the drug for 6 months in 2005 and i didnt monitor the side effect but looking back i can remember being more anti social more having more anxiety and when my breast were swollen i thought it was because i had been hitting the gym hard and doing chest exercises. I do remember having a bit of difficulty maintaining an erection but didn’t put the two together. I recently took it again after a hair transplant at the age of 31 and my breast swole up even more… It basically turned me into a women..They say 2 percent have side effects but its probably way more than that its just that people don’t monitor there side effects and then there bodies tolerate the drug but in the long run there screwing up there endocrine system and central nervous system and this drug has no long term study. My advice would be to stay away from this drug it is dangerous and will eventually ruin your life..

    I cannot understand how so many professionals and doctors ADVISE people to take a drug with known, damaging side effects?? Is this ethical? Or legal? The side effects of Finasteride (propecia, proscar) are often PERMANENT…..believe me, you are better bald or with thin hair than having a life time of drug-induced side effetcs. Do not listen to the so called “professionals”… do you own research and trust your instinct. I will not take that stuff and I would not advise anyone else to.

    Many leading Hair Transplant surgeons will extend into the upper areas well above the ears since in many cases; the densest and most viable hair resides there. It’s also typically easier to conceal and hide the scar in these areas. Moreover, additional risks of scar stretching exist when hair is excised too closely to the ears. To stay within the universal safe zone, physicians who extend into the upper levels won’t want to extend

    I was on Finasteride for 6 months, eventually I noticed a denser hair. My case is unique, I have been suffering with constipation when I continued to use it and when I stopped using it, I was normal within a fortnight. I feel I am an odd man out, since no one ever complained about constipation with the use of Finasteride. However I convince myself that the side effects of this drug could be unique for individuals. I would welcome comments from my fellow Fin users.

    Hi Cart,

    I have not heard of this before. However, I do highly recommend consulting with a physician about the issue and any other adverse effects you’re currently experiencing.

    Furthermore, if you’re interested in discussing the medication with Propecia (finasteride) users, I do invite you to review current discussions on our hair restoration network (www.hairrestorationnetwork.com).

    Good luck!
