Reviews for Propecia to treat Androgenetic Alopecia
"I'm 24 with mild receding hair, still have a full head of hair but beginning to recede on the crown and round temples. Started Propecia on the 23/12/16 had no side affects up until last night, at no point did I look up reviews of side effects of the drug as I did not want other people's experiences to play on my mind. Last night, noticed a tender pain in my testicules and it's continued throughout the whole of today, I am now stopping this drug immediately. I've spent the whole of day with aggressive pain the mentioned above area, been projectile vomiting and had diarrhoea. This drug has not worked for me and by reading others comments I will certainly review people's opinions rather than trusting there findings."

"Don't take this drug. I used it for a few months and it killed my libido. I did get some noticeable hair re-growth during that time, so at least that worked. It became very hard to get an erection and I became completely disinterested in sex. I've read accounts that some people never regained their libido, and suffered lasting erectile dysfunction. This is not natural. Your libido is part of who you are, and so is hair loss. Be a man and accept the loss of your hair as part of who you were meant to be."

"Complete Brain Fog, worse than anything you can imagine, literally can't get out of bed because of the brain damage that this drug induced on me, I feel completely literally detached from the world now, not to mention even the less serious it caused, ED, no Libido, Head Pressure, complete cognitive shift, feel like I'm in a whole different world, NEVER TOUCH this drug EVER EVER EVER, unless your old and have nothing else to lose and don't care about life any more. I would trade this with ANY other disease just for my brain function to come back again, I feel like I'm in a coma, it's absolutley frightful, everyday 24/7, it never leaves, sexual sides are a joke compared to this."

"I have been using this medication for just over a year now. Hair has re-grown over my crown but the top and temple areas are still quite thin, have not re-grown and not responded in the same way. I guess these areas have not gotten any worse either. Certainly I don%u2019t notice hair in the shower or in my hair brush as much. On the sexual function side of things I have noticed a decrease performance wise, I guess there was always going to be a tradeoff. The main thing I think to watch out for is the effect the medication has on PSA levels and if you are already being monitored for this prior to starting Propecia it is worth bearing in mind and reminding your physician about the PSA lowering effect of Propecia."

"At the tender age of 25, I noticed that my hair was beginning to thin. Not wanting to look like my dad or brother, I got a prescription for Propecia. So far, it's been working. In fact, if I miss a dosage, I'll notice little bits of my hair fall into my keyboard or the pages of a book I'm reading! Yes, this medication is expensive. My insurance won't cover it at all. (Funny that they cover Viagra, though). The only side effect is that I do notice a slight decrease in my sex drive - but honestly that's probably good. Keeps me out of trouble."

"After 1 month of using Propecia, I noticed a decrease in the loss of hair after a shower. Now in my 4th month of use, there is a notable difference in the thickness of my hair, and some growth noted!"

"I started suffering from hair loss just recently. My doctor prescribed me this medicine. After 1 month of using it, my hair doesn't fall any more. Until now I continue using it and there's no other side effects. This medicine is so amazing!"
