Let’s take a look at Scalp Med side effects vs. Propecia side effects.
Propecia is a very popular hair loss treatment for men. It’s basically finasteride, which is a potent drug that regrows hair. You can’t buy this product over the counter—you need a prescription. As with many potent drugs, there are side effects associated with it. Some of them are pretty scary.
First of all, you can’t use Propecia around women who are or may become pregnant. It can cause birth defects in an unborn baby. It also shouldn’t be taken if you’re around a woman who is breastfeeding, since it may pass into the breast milk. Scalp Med is perfectly safe to use around women. In fact, there’s a version made just for women who are experiencing hair loss.
According to Wikipedia, finasteride (the chemical name for Propecia) “has been linked to depression . . . and is under investigation by the Swedish Medical Products Agency for possibly causing irreversible sexual side effects.”
That’s right—irreversible! There’s a whole online forum for men who have suffered irreversible side effects from taking Propecia. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find on this message board.
“Nothing, absolutely nothing worked to return me to the level of sexual satisfaction I had before finasteride.”
“I am new here and was a long term user of Propecia and cannot believe the side effects from this evil drug. I am sorry, hair is not worth all this.”
“The choice is yours, to risk losing your manhood, or not risk it at all. There are many on here that could care less about hair loss now that finasteride has ruined their lives.”
Scalp Med is Perfectly Safe
Pretty sobering stuff. But you don’t have to worry about sexual side effects with a hair loss product that uses minoxidil. It doesn’t affect the hormones. There are no side effects—it’s perfectly safe to use.
