    Effective for stopping my hair loss with some regrowth. Took for almost 20 years. Noticed some diminished sexual drive after a few years but not enough to be a problem.

    The reviews posted within this consumer reporting are bogus. If you look closely at the name, age, GENDER of the patients posting, you will see that they are all Female... That being an obvious contraindication due to the drug being only safe for men. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU READ, THE PEOPLE WITH $$$ DO A LOT FROM THEIR INTERESTS!... I have not begun the regimen of Propecia because I am still skeptica ... Show Full Comment

I've witnessed absolutely NO LOSS of sexual appetite or libido. I ... Show Full Comment
