Dr. Rassman, have any of your patients ever complained of Propecia causing Dry Eyes? I’ve been experiencing severe dry eye for a while and until now I hadn’t really thought that cause might be the Propecia. My eye doctor wasn’t aware of that being a side affect but she was going to research it. I’m thinking about stopping it for a month or so to see if I notice any improvement.
Dry eyes is not an officially reported side effect, but I have heard other doctors in my field report rare occurrences of it. I would speak to your doctor and consider stopping the medication after weighing out the risks and benefits of your treatment (with your doctor).
