Post-finasteride syndrome is a devastating condition that afflicts men who’ve taken finasteride for hair loss (under the Propecia brand) or enlarged prostate (Proscar). Persistent symptoms include erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, genital shrinkage, Peyronie’s disease, muscle atrophy, gynecomastia, depression and cognitive impairment. Many victims suffer economic hardship due to job loss, and emotional distress due to the breakup of marriages and romantic relationships. PFS has also been linked to suicides. No one knows how many men are living with PFS, but experts estimate there are tens of thousands of cases worldwide. While there’s currently no cure for PFS, clinical research offers hope that effective treatments will be developed in the coming years. Until then, “PFS Global Support” is here to provide a weekly gathering place where victims and their loved ones can share information and offer mutual support.
