Baldness Drug Propecia Has Been Linked With Sexual Problems Even After Men Stop Taking It
The Huffington Post reported that the popular male pattern baldness drug finasteride, known as Propecia, may have negative effects on sexual function months or even years after men have stopped taking it, according to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The study consisting of 54 men who experienced sexual problems at least three months after stopping Propecia. The researchers found that 89 percent of them had sexual problems severe enough to be considered sexual dysfunction.
Propecia comes with warnings of sex-related side effects, such as problems with ejaculation and orgasm, but the study shows that these effects are affecting men long after they are off the drug.
It has been reported that for 96 percent of men who took Propecia and then stopped, sexual side effects continued on for more than a year later. If you or someone you know has been taking Propecia, please contact a Propecia lawsuit attorney to determine your options.
