CBS News Reports: Propecia Blamed For The Suicide of 22 Year Old Who Suffered From Sexual Dysfunction
A grieving mother is warning others about a popular medication, taken by millions, that can cause devastating and long term side effects.
“I’m going to be living the rest of my life without my son,” said Rosemary of New Jersey. Her son Randy was just 22-years-old when he killed himself. His parents blame the hair loss drug Propecia. Randy was taking it because his curly red hair had started to recede.
“It is so not worth it,” said Rosemary.
The warning label says there can be sexual side effects, including lack of desire and difficulty achieving an erection. They’re supposed to go away when men stop taking the drug.
Not for Randy, he told his parents when he stopped taking Propecia the impotence continued along with deepening depression.
“He hated all the things that the drug had done to him. He hoped his family and friends would understand why he didn’t want to live anymore,” said Rosemary
