A recent Epidemiology study conducted at the Fineberg School of Medicine suggests tens of thousands of cases of "Post-Finasteride" Syndrome in young men taking Finasteride for hair loss.


The study found that 1.19% of men with no prior history of sexual dysfunction taking low-dose Finasteride for more than 205 days developed a erectile dysfunction lasting about three months after discontinuing the therapy.  The risk is increased over time with longer duration of Finasteride therapy. One-third of young men with the onset of new erectile dysfunction eventually developed persistent erectile dysfunction. The persistent ED lasted on average 4.2 years after discontinuing the medication.

The study was the first to discover the negative impact of the hair loss drug on sexual health. One out of every 100 men who take Finasteride long term for hair loss will suffer devastating, long-term, and possibly permanent damage to their sexual health.

Post-Finasteride syndrome occurs in men who've taken the drug for hair loss or enlarged prostate glands. Symptoms include loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, Peyronie's disease, penile shrinkae, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment, insomnia, severely dry skin and tinnitus. This is a serious condition often has a life-altering impact on victims and their families, such as job loss and the breakup of marriages and romantic relationships while also being linked to suicides.

There are ways to natural enhance your hair growth without having any negative effects to the rest of your body. Developing a sexual dysfunction or any of the side effects associated with Finasteride do not weigh up to potential hair growth.

Start by Towel dry your head vigorously each day and do a scalp massage with Weleda's Rosemary oil. Natural treatments to regrow hair can include drinking 2-4 cups of green tea per day, eating natural 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors like: dark berries like: blueberries, pomegranates, strawberries, raspberries because these foods inhibit protein kinase C. Using herbs like: Trifolium, Pueraria, Panax ginseng, Curcuma aeruginosa and Polygonum multiflora can be used topically and internally to inhibit 5 alpha-reductase.

 Ask me about a supplement form that is easy to take. Take Xymogen's RegeneMax Plus - Take 2 caps of Xymogen's Regenemax - the only supplement that has passed double-blind studies for hair regrowth. Adrenal Manager and AdrenaMax rebalance your stress hormones and support your adrenals.
