Helping Clients Injured by Propecia in the Greater Denver Area
Propecia, a drug used to treat male pattern baldness, has the potential for persistent and possible permanent side effects in men. These side effects include erectile dysfunction, sexual impotence, low sexual drive, and gynecomastia, which is the enlargement of mammary glands in males. In studies involving the use of Propecia, otherwise known as finasteride, side effects lasted on an average of 40 months after the use of the medication had ended. Some patients have reported irreversible side effects and in one forum for men victimized by its use, suicides were reported of men who felt their lives had been ruined by the drug.
