Alternatives to Propecia? (Drugs & Medications)

Approximately 1 in 50 males (2%) reported one or more sexual side effects during finasteride (decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, or ejaculation disorder), compared with 1% in the placebo group.

Mondaini et al describes a “nocebo” phenomenon as when an adverse side effect is not a direct result of the pharmacologic action of the drug but rather of the patient knowing that it is a side effect. They tested this hypothesis in 120 patients on finasteride for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) who were randomly assigned to groups that were informed or not informed of the side effects. After 6 and 12 months, the informed group reported a significantly higher incidence (43%) of sexual side effects than did the uninformed group (15%). While these results do not mean that we can intentionally withhold information from our patients, they do suggest that the sexual side effects can sometimes have a psychological, rather than a pharmacologic, cause.
