Propecia Lawsuit Canada

propeciahairloss The Propecia lawsuit in Canada was filed by Michael Miller, who says he was prescribed Proscar (another brand name for Propecia) because of hair loss.

Finasteride sexual side effects reportedly include decreased libido and erectile dysfunction.

Propecia Side Effects

maturecouple In August 2011, Health Canada issued a warning that Propecia was potentially linked to an increased risk of male breast cancer. Although Health Canada said it had received two reports of male breast cancer linked to the use of Proscar, it noted that reports of male breast cancer worldwide were linked to both Proscar and Propecia. In its announcement, Health Canada noted that Propecia has not been proven to cause breast cancer but that the possibility could not be ruled out.

A study recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine reportedly found a link between the use of Propecia (finasteride) and sexual dysfunction. According to the study, which reviewed data from clinical trials, up to 15 percent of men who used Propecia suffered sexual dysfunction, compared with around 7 percent of men who used a placebo.

Proscar and Propecia (Finasteride)

Propecia (known generically as finasteride) and Proscar are prescribed as a cosmetic treatment for male pattern hair loss also known as androgenic alopecia. Propecia can also be used to treat problems linked to an enlarged prostate.

After using this poison for around three months, I stopped and lost myself. I don't know what to do because there is no medication or any solution for that. My penis and testicles got smaller, zero desire for sex and almost no erections; and if there is, it's going away in seconds. Because of this I got problems with the love of my life and too much. I don't know what to do. I just don't want to live anymore.

I've taken Proscar for over ten years (entire adult life) and suffered from severe depression and anxiety, and some erectile dysfunction, without the knowledge that the prescribed medication had the potential risk of causing these damages.
