Propecia side effects

Has anyone taking propecia? my husband is just starting this treatment. He is only 27 and his hair is receeding but not that bad. Anyways I have heard on and on about the sexual side effects. Anyone have any experience with this?

Re: Propecia side effects

My husband starting taking it about 4 years ago.

It did have sexual side effects with him (low sex drive).

He stopped taking them for a while, but started back. He is taking an herbal stamina enhancer pill now and all is fine.

Re: Propecia side effects

Another thing that you have to be careful of is YOU coming into contact with the Propecia. They say women who are pregnant or are in child-bearing years should not handle this medication.

Just thought you might want to know this.

Re: Propecia side effects

Thank you! I just read this and I AM 5 weeks pregnant! My husband is just keeping the meds at work so they won't even be in the house. Thank you, that is very scary considering I just got pregnant.
