Propecia was created for treating different levels of male pattern hair loss in the crown and hairline areas and should be used by men only. Women and children should not take or come in contact with Propecia because it wields serious risk to their health. If you have an allergic reaction to finasteride or any of Propecia components you should avoid suing this drug.
Side-effects in men were observed in less than 2% of respondents and were usually characterised by skin rash, swelling, itching as well as some sexually-related issues like loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, problems with ejaculation and others. In very rare cases unpleasant and unusual sensations in breasts were reported. If you develop any of these symptoms while taking Propecia, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
Propecia also affects certain prostate health aspects, so if you are going through any prostate-related tests or examinations tell the doctor that you are taking Propecia.
Propecia and Pregnancy
Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant in the near future should avoid coming into direct contact with crushed or broken Propecia pills. The active ingredients of Propecia will cause birth defects and abnormalities in fetus development.
If a pregnant woman contacts with crushed Propecia tablets, she should thoroughly wash her hands with soap as soon as possible and consult with her doctor. All Propecia tablets have a special protective coating that should not be crushed or broken to avoid any direct contacts with the drug itself before it is used.
