PERSISTENT PROPECIA / FINASTERIDE SIDE EFFECTS & SUICIDE -- CBS News Philadelphia (Health Watch)

Health Watch: Popular Drug Warning http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2011/05/03/health-watch-popular-drug-warning/ May 3, 2011 -- PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A grieving mother's warning about a popular medication, taken by millions, that can cause devastating and long term side effects. On Your Side Health Reporter Stephanie Stahl has exclusive details. "I'm going to be living the rest of my life without my son," said Rosemary of New Jersey. Her son Randy was just 22-years-old when he killed himself. His parents blame the hair loss drug PROPECIA. Randy was taking it because his curly red hair had started to recede. "It is so not worth it," said Rosemary. The warning label says there can be sexual side effects, including lack of desire and difficulty achieving an erection. They're supposed to go away when men stop taking the drug. Not for Randy, he told his parents when he stopped taking PROPECIA the impotence continued along with deepening depression. "He hated all the things that the drug had done to him. He hoped his family and friends would understand why he didn't want to live anymore," said Rosemary. Randy and scores of other men have shared their devastating discoveries on propeciahelp.com. But they're too embarrassed to show their faces. One man told us, "It basically destroyed my life. It's devastating. It's terrible. Another says, "It's not worth it, if you can't have a sex life. I feel like my twenties have been taken away from me, and it's not fair." New research from Dr. Michael Irwig at George Washington University shows some men can have persistent sexual side effects lasting five years after they stop taking PROPECIA. "The presence of persistent sexual side effects in young men who were previously completely healthy can really take a big toll on their life," said Dr. Irwig. PROPECIA works by altering hormones. Dr. Irwig suspects, in a small percentage of men, that can cause sexual dysfunction. Merck, the maker of PROPECIA, says that study is flawed. "They feel less than human because of it," said Alan Milstein, a New Jersey lawyer. He is suing Merck, on behalf of several men who claim the drug ruined their lives. "When something as essential as sexual pleasure is taken from you, it has a profound affect," said Milstein. He says Merck was not adequately warning men taking PROPECIA about the potential for long term impotence. "Whether that was done intentionally so they could make a lot of money and not scare people away, that's going to remain to be seen as this lawsuit progresses," said Milstein. Randy's parents say he tried therapy and different medications, but nothing worked. "This is really the closest thing we have to a suicide note," said Randy's father. He saved his sons postings from the PropeciaHelp website. "I'm really hoping that this drug kills me so I don't have to do it myself. I don't think my family and friends would ever understand suicide. But if they really knew what the meaningless ghostly hell I've descended into, then they would understand," read Randy's father. Merck says it will vigorously defend the lawsuits. Just two weeks ago, since we started working on this story, warning labels for PROPECIA in the United States were revised to include complaints about persistent sexual side effects. But Merck stands by its studies saying once the drug is stopped the dysfunction goes away. ============= For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

PROPECIA (FINASTERIDE) PERSISTENT SEXUAL SIDE EFFECTS -- CBS Chicago News Report
 
03:10
Hair Loss Drug 'Under Fire' For Sexual Side-Effects http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/05/11/hair-loss-drug-under-fire-for-sexual-side-effects/ May 11, 2011 -- CHICAGO (CBS) -- It's a drug that promises to reverse hair loss for men, but is it worth the risk? As CBS 2′s Pam Zekman reports, some men say they have been devastated by a side effect of the baldness drug Propecia. "I feel like my twenties have been taken away from me and it's not fair," said one young man who asked for anonymity. "I wouldn't wish this on anybody." He was prescribed Propecia to battle his thinning hair and says sexual side effects started the first day he used the drug. "I wasn't able to get an erection or it took me a very long time," he said. "I can't maintain an erection now." At the time he started taking Propecia the insert said less than 2-percent of the men who took it had "sexual side-effects", and that those went away when the patients stopped taking the drug. But, it's been two years since Tom last took Propecia and his problem continues. "I basically feel like my penis and brain are not connected anymore," he said. That's not surprising, according to a recent study conducted by Dr. Michael Irwig of George Washington University. "The novel part about this study was that it is the first study to describe persistent sexual dysfunction after stopping the medicine where as previous studies have all reported that there have been reversible sexual side effects." Lawsuits have been filed against Merck — the maker of propecia — in both Canada and the U.S. Attorney Alan Milstein filed one of the cases. "The warnings that came with this drug did not adequately tell the potential users of the drug what to be aware of," Milstein said. Rosemary McGeady joined the lawsuit after her son Randy killed himself. "He hated all the things that the drug had done to him," said McGeady. "He hoped his family and friends would understand why he didn't want to live anymore. " Dr. Robert Brannigan, of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, says he sees half a dozen patients a year who have told him, "I went on this medication and after that I noticed these changes in my sexual health." He says there needs to be a long-term study of Propecia "It's always been a question in my mind, was this a lingering drug effect or are their other factors coming into play?" Dr. Brannigan said. As for the 22 year old young man who asked for anonymity, "I wouldn't trade my hair for not having or not being able to have sex you know, that's just kind of a no brainer." Merck recently changed the wording on their label to acknowledge reports of sexual dysfunction even after people stop taking the drug. But, a spokesman for Merck disputes the findings in Dr. Irwig's study. the spokesman says Propecia passed three clinical trials before the drug was approved and that once men stop taking Propecia the sexual side effects go away. Merck adds that they will vigorously defend themselves against the pending lawsuits. ================= For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

PERSISTENT SEXUAL SIDE EFFECTS OF FINASTERIDE (PROPECIA) FOR MALE PATTERN HAIR LOSS
 
03:55
Dr. Michael S. Irwig from George Washington University has published a study on persistent Finasteride (Propecia) side effects in young men aged 21-46. Study published March 18, 2011: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1743-6109.2011.02255.x/abstract ------ http://gwtoday.gwu.edu/people/adrugsunintendedconsequences A recent study by GW Professor Michael S. Irwig reveals persistent and possibly permanent side effects associated with a common hair loss drug. Men taking medication for hair loss may suffer from prolonged and possibly irreversible sexual dysfunction, according to a recent study by Assistant Professor of Medicine Michael S. Irwig. The study, recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, reveals that finasteride--an antiandrogen that treats hair loss and is found in popular male pattern baldness drug Propecia--can cause persistent sexual dysfunction, including low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction and problems with orgasms. While labeling on the medication in the U.S. currently warns about possible reversible sexual side effects, there is no reference to the effects being persistent, says Dr. Irwig, who conducted the study along with Swapna Kolukula of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. Other countries, including the United Kingdom and Sweden, have documented persistent risks and required medical companies to include them in labeling. Dr. Irwig first became aware of the problems caused by finasteride several years ago when he encountered several men who reported they had developed sexual dysfunction while taking the medication. "It's been very frustrating for a lot of these men because they've sought care from medical professionals who have looked at the literature and have not seen a risk of persistent sexual dysfunction," says Dr. Irwig. "So a lot of these patients have been told to see psychiatrists and psychologists and that it's all in their head." Dr. Irwig then noticed that men had reported sexual dysfunction for months after they stopped taking the medication. "I came across a website called propeciahelp.com with more than 1,400 registered users—many young healthy men who developed the same sexual side effects from finasteride—and I discovered that nobody had published a series looking at these men—who they are, how long the sexual side effects lasted, what types." Dr. Irwig's study included results from interviews with 71 men aged 21 to 46 years old to assess how long they took finasteride, the type and duration of sexual side effects and their sexual frequency before and after the medication. Dr. Irwig discovered that 94 percent developed low libido, 92 percent developed erectile dysfunction and decreased arousal, and 69 percent developed problems with orgasm. On average, the men used finasteride for approximately 28 months but experienced persistent sexual side effects for an average of 40 months, from the time they ceased taking the medication to the time of the interview. Dr. Irwig also found that the average number of sexual episodes per month dropped after finasteride use. "It turns out that almost all the men had multiple sexual function problems," says Dr. Irwig. "Before finasteride use, the men experienced average sexual activity of approximately 26 episodes per month, but after use, it came down to approximately eight per month —an almost two-thirds reduction." "Twenty percent of patients I interviewed experienced persistent sexual dysfunction for more than five years, which makes me wonder if their persistent sexual dysfunction is permanent," he adds. Dr. Irwig says roughly 5 percent of men who take medicine will experience sexual dysfunction, but that "out of that 5 percent, it's hard to tell how many will experience persistent symptoms." "We know that this is a potential problem, but we can't quantify what the exact risk is. I can't tell a man if he has a 1-in-100 chance, or a 1-in-1000 chance of developing persistent sexual dysfunction, but it's pretty clear there's a relationship here," he says. Topical Rogaine can be used as an alternative to Propecia —applied directly on the skin, it does not get absorbed by body and thus does not cause sexual side effects—but Dr. Irwig says Propecia is very effective in treating hair loss and thus is commonly prescribed. So Dr. Irwig says it is crucial physicians treating male pattern hair loss discuss the possibility of persistent sexual side effects associated with finasteride with their patients. "I think it's very important that doctors who are prescribing this medicine talk about potential risks, so men can make an informed decision," he says. =============== For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

Propecia (Finasteride) -- Undisclosed Mechanisms, Potential Dangers & Persistent Side Effects
 
09:51
Propecia (Finasteride) is a commonly-prescribed drug treatment for androgenetic alopecia (hair loss, male pattern baldness). However, unbeknownst to the general public, Propecia does much more than simply inhibit the 5-alpha reductase type-II enzyme and DHT. In this presentation we reveal additional undisclosed mechanisms of action of Finasteride, and highlight the potential dangers that can arise from use -- information and mechanisms that Propecia's manufacturer has not made available to the general public. Unfortunately, lack of disclosure regarding these mechanisms has caused many men to experience PERMANENT sexual, mental & physical side effects which can continue for months, years or someteimes indefinitely -- despite quitting the drug. Inhibition of 5AR2 metabolism, DHT and neurosteroid production (Allopregnanolone, THDOC), GABA-A receptor impairment, interference with Nitric Oxide release, prostatic involution and atrophy, persistent erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, memory impairment, cognitive dysfunction, anxiety, depression, hypogonadism, gynecomastia, low Testosterone levels, sleep impairment and penile/scrotal shrinkage are just some symptoms of the "Post-Finasteride Syndrome" -- a debilitating condition affecting an unknown number of men worldwide who have taken and since quit Finasteride. It is currently UNKNOWN why permanent side effects occur, WHO is susceptible, or HOW to successfully treat this serious adverse post-drug reaction. Given these facts, we believe in properly informing the public about the potential undisclosed risks of this medication, so that you can make a more informed decision regarding usage. Which will it be -- sacrificing your bodily health & vitality, sexual, mental and physical function for cosmetic appearance, or choosing non-5AR2 inhibitor alternatives (ie hair transplant) to succesfully treat what is ultimately an emotional concern about losing hair? The choice is yours. For more information, please visit http://www.propeciahelp.com -- UNRESOLVED Finasteride Side Effects Info & Forum.

Dr. Drew Pinsky -- Possible sexual side effects for male baldness drug (Propecia)
 
01:05
Possible sexual side effects for male baldness drug http://www.hlntv.com/article/2012/07/12/sexual-side-effects-drug-used-treat-male-baldness FDA adds new warnings to finasteride, the drug used to treat male pattern baldness and enlarged prostate The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced recently that they have added new warnings to finasteride, the drug used to treat male pattern baldness and enlarged prostate. Labels for Propecia and Proscar now include an expanded list of sexual adverse events reported to the FDA, citing some side effects events have continued after the drug is no longer being used by a patient. According to their website, the changes include: - A revision to the Propecia label to include libido disorders, ejaculation disorders, and orgasm disorders that continued after discontinuation of the drug. - A revision to the Proscar label to include decreased libido that continued after discontinuation of the drug. - A revision to both the Propecia and Proscar labels to include a description of reports of male infertility and/or poor semen quality that normalized or improved after drug discontinuation. The site also says, "Despite the fact that clear causal links between finasteride (Propecia and Proscar) and sexual adverse events have NOT been established, the cases suggest a broader range of adverse effects than previously reported in patients taking these drugs." Dr. Drew noted on his HLN show Thursday night, "We don't know how long before the side effects go away. I presume they will, [but] we just don't know. So think long and hard and then talk to your doctor about these medications." ============= For more information, visit http://www.propeciahelp.com

Most in the medical community are unaware of this possibility, dismiss such claims, or do not care to investigate further as to how or why the drug can leave some men with complete loss of sex drive, shrunken penis/scrotum, Peyronie's Disease (penile fibrosis), loss of penile sensitivity, loss of spontaneous/morning/nocturnal erections, chronic fatigue, decreased mental acuity, memory recall issues and much more -- or why after quitting those with permanent issues often find their Testosterone, LH & FSH levels drop through the floor (amongst other hormonal imbalances), often to hypogonadal levels typically only seen during male Andropause in old age. Read the FAQ and Finasteride Studies section of http://www.propeciahelp.com for more information about the dangers and unlisted mechanisms of action of this drug, far beyond what Merck discloses in their advertising, medical literature and in their studies submitted to the FDA for Propecia approval. 5AR and DHT are absolutely critical for the proper mental, physical, sexual and fertility functioning of some men, and there are no guarantess that things will return to normal after taking drugs that disrupt or alter the endocrine system... including those like Finasteride that create a surrogate state of 5AR2 deficiency in men, thereby instilling a hormonal profile that matches that of a 5AR2-deficient pseudohermaphrodite. End.
