Propecia (finasteride) is one of only two clinically proven and FDA approved treatments for male pattern balding. However, unlike its sidekick Rogaine (minoxidil), using Propecia carries with it the potential for experiencing some very unpleasant sexual side effects. While studies show that less than 2% of men who take Propecia experience such side effects, it remains a very real concern for men considering this treatment. Some patients simply refuse to add it to their daily hair loss regimen while continuing to lose precious hair follicles to the effects of DHT.
So, what are the risks of adding Propecia to your daily routine and how long do you wait before evaluating its effects?
