I don’t know if you are aware about the french situation of propecia, but on the news these days they are talking about the permanent side effects, and a potential permanent erectile dysfunction. The equivalent of the FDA here, AFSSAPS, is talking about a reevaluation. The drug might be forbidden in 2013.
Do you know any others countries where the drug is forbidden ?
I ran that link through Google Translate so I could read it, but I didn’t find anything new there that we haven’t covered before. It says they will reassess the medication next year, which could mean there will be a change to the product label or there will be no changes at all. Any action to ban finasteride would impact men with prostate problems and would be unlikely.
