Before you use one of these Big Pharma products for hair loss, consider this…

Finasteride and Duasteride come with several hidden dangers for men.

One man named Sam explains: “I’ve experienced sexual side effects like decreased libido and loss of interest in sex. It has ruined my sex life.”

And another man who is only 32 says: “Destroyed my libido, constant tinnitus and headache, depression, loss of feeling down there… Destroyed my life…”

This is very, very common with men who take finasteride or dutasteride.

Studies are out there showing how terribly damaging these drugs are — but the Big Pharma companies ignore, bury, or suppress the studies.

So even doctors make the mistake of taking these terrible treatments for hair loss…

Don’t make the same mistake… Try this all-natural balm that slows down hair loss while promoting fresh growth with ZERO side effects

Men — this “normal” medical checkup hurts prostate health

One thing that drives me bonkers about Big Pharma is how hard they push products that can destroy men’s sex lives, without doing a very good job of disclosing the risk.

Which is why I write about it so much.

Guys will come to me with “rockiness” problems after going on various treatments…

And when I tell them about the risks and they are APPALLED, because they weren’t adequately informed.

Among the worst of these are the treatments that are marketed for hair loss and to shrink the prostate gland.

I’m not telling you to quit them without talking to your doctor. You should always consult with your doctor first.

What I am telling you to do is make sure you understand the risks completely…

And then if a bad sexual side effect happens to you, you know where it might be coming from.

What are finasteride and dutasteride?

Finasteride and dutasteride are treatments that are prescribed for prostate enlargement.

Finasteride is also prescribed for male pattern baldness.

They work by preventing testosterone from changing into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

“5α-reductase inhibitors (5α-RIs), finasteride and dutasteride, have been approved for treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia, with marked clinical efficacy. Finasteride is also approved for treatment of hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).”

The problem is that when you start messing with your body’s natural hormonal cycle, you can end up with some pretty nasty side effects.

Finasteride and dutasteride CLAIM to have low incidences of sexual side effects.

Unfortunately, drug companies don’t like people to think about or know about the side effects of their treatments…

So they do their best to make them seem minimal, even when they aren’t.

“Clinical trial reports and the manufacturers’ full prescribing information (FPI) for finasteride and dutasteride state that risk of sexual adverse effects is not increased by longer duration of 5α-RI exposure and that sexual adverse effects of 5α-RIs resolve in men who discontinue exposure.”

The packaging for these treatments says that the sexual side effects are on the minimal side.

But both studies and testimonials from men tell a different story.

A 2017 study tells a different story about negative sexual side effects.

One of the biggest problems with these treatments is persistent “rockiness” dysfunction (PED).

And if you are a young man taking these treatments, then they pose a risk for PED that is HIGHER than any other factor.

“Risk of PED was higher in men with longer exposure to 5α-RIs. Among young men, longer exposure to finasteride posed a greater risk of PED than all other assessed risk factors.”

Even worse, these “rockiness” effects were known even in 2014.

In 2014, there was a large study of these treatments and about 1 out of 12 men experienced “rockiness” problems when taking them.

“In an observational cohort of 14,772 men taking finasteride, ED was the most common adverse event leading to withdrawal from the trial. The AUA clinical practice guideline reported erectile problems in 8% and 4% of patients taking finasteride and placebo, respectively.

Those are not odds that I like!

And, after working with thousands of men who deal with “rockiness” problems, I can tell you for sure that doctors don’t talk about them enough.

What men say about these treatments…

It’s easy to think that it might not happen to you. And that may be the case.

After all, about 11 of 12 people don’t get “rockiness” problems as a side effect – at least according to the studies.

But for the men who do have the problems, the condition can be significant.

Here’s the experience of a young man taking propecia (finasteride) for hair loss:

“I’ve been taking 1mg of propecia for 6 years. I’m 25 now, and after a week of stopping propecia (ran out and doc delayed), my morning wood, libido, and quality of erections skyrocketed. I forgot what this felt like! So I’m confused now. Should I continue propecia or lower the dosage?”

And here’s a man with negative side effects after just a few weeks on finasteride:

“So I’ve definitely already begun experiencing a decrease in libido and ED after only a few weeks on finasteride. I’m already considering stopping.”

The bottom line:

If you are taking these treatments, you need to understand the risks.

It’s usually a better idea to work on the root problem of prostate enlargement – internal inflammation – instead of taking treatments that can destroy your sex life and disrupt your hormones.

If you’re over the age of 45, then right now, your prostate is about the size of a lemon…

But here’s the crazy thing: in your 20s, it was the size of a walnut. Which means in the past 20+ years, it has nearly TRIPLED in size.

It’s so large, it’s putting pressure on your bladder, leaving you with that constant “need to pee” feeling.

Plus, it’s actually blocking blood flow to your “you-know-what” and making it impossible to get or stay “rocky.”

That’s the bad news, but the good news is this:

Research has recently discovered an incredibly effective way to shrink your prostate.
