Were You Injured After Taking Propecia or Proscar?
In recent years there have been a number of treatment options and medications on the market that were aimed at treating male pattern baldness. Originally intended to treat enlarged prostates, two popular treatment options for male baldness were the drugs Propecia and Proscar, both sold by Merck.
The main ingredient in the drugs is called finasteride, which is purported to inhibit the conversion of androgen testosterone to DHT, which is the main cause of hair loss amongst men. Unfortunately, DHT happens to be the critical hormone that is responsible for male sexual performance and function. If you suffered serious side effects after taking Propecia or Proscar, consult with our Tampa dangerous drug attorneys at The Florida Law Group as soon as possible to learn more about the personal injury claims process.

Side Effects Associated with Taking Propecia or Proscar
Studies have revealed that prolonged use of drugs containing finasteride has caused persistent sexual dysfunction, sometimes lasting for a number of years. What’s worse, these drugs have been linked to an increased risk of being diagnosed with a more serious form of prostate cancer (high-grade prostate cancer) or male breast cancer.
Propecia or Proscar and other finasteride’s have caused permanent side effects such as:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of libido
- Reduced ejaculation
- Reduced semen volume
