Growing your hair never felt so bad
Men who realize they're losing their hair often sink into a funk -- and they think getting back their lost locks will cheer them up.
Well, I've got some depressing news if you're thinking of trying finasteride (aka Propecia) to regrow your hair: If you think you're down in the dumps now, wait 'til you see what this drug might do to you later.
New research finds that far from being happy and hairy, men who take this med have a much higher risk of severe depression -- and that the depression can last after you stop taking the drug.
In a study comparing 61 former Propecia users to a control group of men who never tried the drug, researchers found that 64 percent of ex-users had moderate or severe depressive symptoms and 44 percent reported thoughts of suicide.
Compare that to no cases of moderate or severe depression in the control group, and 3 percent who reported thoughts of suicide.
There's a bunch of reasons why this drug is such an effective downer. One is its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and gum up a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood.
But personally, I think it's just another manifestation of the drug's other notorious side effect: Severe and lasting sexual dysfunction.
As I've warned you before, finasteride is also a prostate drug that "works" by cutting off the flow of manly hormones. Cut off those hormones, and you may grow some hair... but you also risk losing part of your manhood, possibly even permanently.
That's enough to get any man to consider suicide, if you ask me.
