Finasteride - the latest updates
At an international conference recently it was discussed in depth about Finasteride and the possible sexual side effects resulting. It was again concluded that Finasteride is a safe medication and side effects were mainly dose dependent and went away completely upon ceasing the medication. It's been noted that recent media reports on the severity and incidence of side-effects have been extremely overstated and that Finasteride remains the best option for treating male pattern balding.
In my care, side effects are very uncommon and a minimal, intermittent dose of the medication is all that is required to give long term stability of hair loss in most thinning men.
