Millions of men suffer from male pattern baldness and general hair loss, and many who find themselves in this situation have searched for help in stopping their hair loss and even had hopes of reversing their condition. In recent years, many different products and medications have become available to consumers, and as would be expected these products produced mixed results. However, one product that seemed to lead to positive reviews initially is known as Propecia.
Unfortunately, serious problems with Propecia side effects eventually began to arise, and these side effects have led to a serious loss in the enjoyment of life for those who have encountered them. If you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of using this product, you need to seek the help of experienced Propecia lawyers as soon as possible. Below is a brief overview of this troubling issue.
Propecia is manufactured by Merck, one of the true giants of the pharmaceutical industry. It is available in pill form and only via prescription. Propecia works by helping a patient lower the amount of a hormone that exists in males known as Dihydrotestosterone, or more commonly known as DHT. DHT generally will reduce the size of hair follicles near the scalp, so reducing the amount of DHT in the system will halt and in some cases reverse the balding process.
Over time, as more and more men began to use Propecia, more and more reports of serious Propecia side effects began to arise. Specifically, these Propecia side effects related to the ability of the men who were using this product to function sexually. There were several different individual problems that were reported, and these included:
What’s perhaps worse is that Merck initially reported percentages of those who had developed these Propecia side effects, but independent studies that have been done indicate that those reported percentages were much higher in those independent results.
One of the developing issues with regards to Propecia side effects involves the duration of these sexual problems. Warnings regarding this product in Europe state that the sexual issues encountered could be permanent, but the warnings issued in the United States state that these problems are reversible.
Regardless, if you or someone you love has used Propecia to deal with hair loss and you wound up suffering from any of these side effects, you need to seek the help of experienced Propecia side effects lawyers who have been fighting for the rights of injured consumers for many years.
