December 2010 - Merck USA adds DEPRESSION as a reported post-marketing side effect from Propecia (Finasteride) use:

http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/p/propecia/propecia_ppi.pdf

Pg. 2 - What are the possible side effects of PROPECIA?

Quote:
"In general use, the following have been reported: breast tenderness and enlargement; depression; allergic reactions including rash, itching, hives and swelling of the lips and face; problems with ejaculation; testicular pain; and, in rare cases, male breast cancer. You should promptly report to your doctor any changes in your breasts such as lumps, pain or nipple discharge. Tell your doctor promptly about these or any other unusual side effects."



http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/p/propecia/propecia_pi.pdf

Pg. 10 - Postmarketing Experience for PROPECIA (finasteride 1 mg)

Quote:
"Breast tenderness and enlargement; depression; hypersensitivity reactions including rash, pruritus, urticaria, and swelling of the lips and face; testicular pain; and male breast cancer. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate the frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure."

Well if your normal everyday Testosterone levels you've grown accustomed to and that which your body is used to suddenly start dropping... and your energy level, stamina, erection, and other things start declining and things become a struggle or a chore, and your body feeling "run down", its only natural a human will start experiencing depression! It doesn't take a doctor to fucking explain that!!! Good job Merck! Bunch a fucks!!

With each new symptom added, there are more chinks in Merck's armour.

I believe, however, that they figure adding symptoms is no big deal to most patients, who want this drug regardless, despite the attendant risks.

Actually, it is well documented depression from Finasteride/5AR inhibition is due to inhibition of 5AR-derived neurosteroid synthesis.

Useless post Boston. It has more to do with the neurosteroid inhibition while on the drug causing severe depression.

@Mew

Boston is right, even if the medication didnt have a depression side effect, im aure any male that cant get an erection or satisfy his loved one will eventually jave servere depresion at one point or another, its the loss of a god given pleasure and for gods sake, its our manhood we are loosing here.
