Propecia is a highly-efficient drug that helps males diagnosed with pattern hair loss to re-grow their hair. This medicine is generally well tolerated by most patients, with some cases of decreased sex drive, breast tenderness, weakness, dizziness, inability to have an erection, skin rash and a runny nose. These symptoms are most likely to appear at the beginning of the treatment and go away as your body adjusts to the dosage. If any of these mild side effects persist or worsen over time talk to your doctor. Your dosage may need to be reconsidered or an alternative should be found.

If after taking Propecia you experience hives, trouble breathing, rash, swelling of your tongue, lips or throat you may be having an allergic reaction to this medicine.
