Washington: A significant proportion of men who developed persistent sexual side effects from using finasteride - known by its brand name Propecia - also suffer from depressive symptoms and suicidal thoughts, a new study has revealed.“The potential life-threatening side-effects associated with finasteride should prompt clinicians to have serious discussions with their patients,” CBS News quoted Dr. Michael S. Irwig, an assistant professor of medicine in the division of endocrinology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, as saying.According to the National Institutes of Health, finasteride is used to treat male pattern hair loss - the thinning of the hair on the scalp leading to a receding hairline or balding on the top of the head.The drug can also be used to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlargement of the prostate gland – sold under the brand name Proscar -which can cause problems such as frequent and difficult urination and the sudden inability to urinate.
