A website was dedicated on August 28, 2012 to help fund research on medical conditions associated with taking the hair loss drug Propecia. The Post Finasteride Syndrome Foundation launched its website, PFSFoundation.org in order to obtain funding for medical research into the underlying biologic mechanism and treatment of post-finasteride syndrome (PFS). The foundation also wants to increase public awareness of PFS.
The Foundation was established with private grant money from families in Canada, Switzerland, and the United States. PFS is characterized by sexual, neurological, hormonal, and psychological side effects that continue after men terminated treatment for hair loss or enlarged prostates with the medications Propecia and Proscar. Symptoms of PFS may include erectile dysfunction, severe depression, and cognitive impairment, loss of libido, impotence, penile shrinkage, and gynecomastia.
PFS can have a life-altering impact on victims and their families. There have been reports of broken marriages, job loss, and suicides. Many men who took Propecia were unaware of the drug’s side effects because the drug manufacturer Merck may have led them to believe that any sexual side effect was only temporary. However, recent studies and reports suggest that serious side effects of sexual dysfunction can continue for months and years after Propecia was discontinued. Propecia attorneys at the Oracle Law Group are currently investigating cases against the drug manufacturer Merck for Propecia and Proscar.
