Side Effects of Medication
Doesn’t Propecia® (Finasteride) Have Bad Side Effects?
Side effects are RARE (less than 2% of patients) and REVERSIBLE (never permanent). Physicians who have a lot of experience with finasteride will tell you that side effects can be either reduction in your libido (sex drive) or problems getting an erection. In the real world, after treating thousands of patients, Dr. Elliott has been able to avoid side effects in 99% of his patients.
Is It Safe if a Couple Is Trying to Get Pregnant?
Yes, it’s safe. There is no risk to a woman if her partner is taking Finasteride. This was a common misunderstanding after Propecia® became available.
