Propecia (finasteride) is an enzyme inhibitor that can be used to treat male pattern hair loss and benign prostatic hyperplasia. It's recommended to keep a list of medicines you are currently taking for your doctor to see. Although Propecia is not likely to interfere with any other drugs it's important to tell your health care provider everything. If a pregnant woman happens to handle a crushed or broken tablet of Propecia she must wash the area affected with water and consult a doctor as soon as possible. Finasteride can be absorbed through skin and have a negative impact on the health of an unborn baby.
If you are unable to urinate or have been diagnosed with liver disease, prostate cancer or bladder muscle disorder report these health conditions to your doctor. Some of them may require your health care provider to adjust your dosage. If you notice any of the following symptoms report them to your health care provider immediately: hives, itching, changes in your breasts, swelling of the face and rash. Besides these side effects there are a number of other symptoms you may experience. If these symptoms seem particularly bothersome or interfere with your everyday routine report them to your health care provider.
