Finasteride: persistent sexual side effects?
Doctor Answers 3
Finasteride side effects
I prescribe Finasteride on a regular basis for male pattern hair loss; I even take it myself. I also have prescribed this product to patients for prostate enlargement at a higher dose for over 30 years. I have yet to see a case of permanent sexual disfunction. If there are any hints of sexual dysfunction , I have the patient take the medicine every other day and typically resolves. I know this IS a reportable side effect, but as you can see, I think the benefits out weigh the risks.
Hair loss & erectile dysfunction with finasteride -- PRP, Progesterone, Viviscal, Rogaine, Spironolactone
between finasteride and permanent erectile dysfunction
discontinuance exists, but it is less than 1%. If it concerns you,
choose combination therapy that I favor, including progesterone and PRP.
transplant is always an option.
