Peyronie’s Disease and Hair Loss Treatment
We have recently started to successfully treat patients who have suffered from Peyronie’s Disease after taking hair loss treatment.
One of the most common side effects of one of the most popular hair treatment medications is “trouble getting and also keeping an erection”.
Unfortunately, Google won’t allow us to mention the brand of hair loss drug that we have treated, but it does contain a type II enzyme inhibitor prescribed to halt current hair loss in men suffering from thinning of the hair line. It is a prescription only drug but can be easily purchased from on-line stores.
Additionally, this drug is often prescribed for men who are undergoing or have undergone a hair transplant to stop their body rejecting their new hair growth.
Many other side-effects other than PD have also been reported and these together with PD are covered by a foundation created to raise awareness of these issues which can be found here.
There are several other sexual issues other than PD caused by this hair treatment drug including Erectile Dysfunction, loss of libido, the ability to orgasm and smaller volumes of semen creation. Other side effects include burning sensation in the nipples, development of male breasts, low energy, and tiredness.
A study undertaken by Center for Andrology and the Division of Endocrinology at the George Washington University monitored 54 men with an average age of 31, who had taken the drug for three months or more and who experienced sexual side effects. They had all been healthy at the start of the study and not had any previous problems with sexual function.
While hair transplant clinics are aware of the issue you should acquaint yourself with the side-affects before embarking on any hair loss treatment or treatment for Alopecia. One solution is to undertake a pro-active approach and have Shockwave erectile dysfunction therapy before starting on hair loss treatment. In this way it is possible to build up muscle resistance and manage the condition through the hair treatment.
The manufacturer of the drug are continuing to face legal action regarding the possible link between it and Peyronie’s Disease. More than 1,000 men have filed lawsuits. Warnings about possible side effects are now included in all packages of the drug and you should heed these warnings with care before embarking on treatment.
