Can't hold your liquor? Maybe it's the Propecia
Going bald isn't officially considered a form of mental illness, but it may as well be.
Ever see how crazy men act when they see that first glint of skin up top?
They lose all common sense, and many will do almost anything to get it back -- leading to one of the biggest mistakes they'll ever make: Propecia.
That's a hair loss drug that does double-duty as a prostate treatment. It can pack some horrific sexual side effects -- potential side effects that could hang around even after you stop taking the drug -- but I'm not going to focus on that today. (Read all about it right here if you want to know more.)
No, today I want to focus on a newly uncovered side effect that might be downright mild by comparison, but could also change your life and limit how you enjoy yourself: Propecia may make it so you can't hold your liquor anymore.
In one new study, two-thirds of drinkers on Propecia either cut back on their booze intake or even quit completely -- and in many cases, this lasted even after they stopped taking the drug.
Many said that when they did drink, they had a harder time recovering. And many became depressed when they had to cut back or give up.
Wouldn't you? Booze isn't just a great way to enjoy yourself, it's also one of the best ways to boost your health. Moderate drinkers have a lower risk of heart disease, dementia, and more -- and moderate drinkers LIVE LONGER, too.
But if you start knocking back drugs to get a little hair back, you might be forced to stop knocking back liquor too -- and miss out on all those great benefits.
If you're losing your own hair, you don't need to risk your sex life or your social life to get it back. There are natural ways to slow and even reverse hair loss. Search my online archives for the answers.
