Do and don’t do – Propecia Finasteride

Some precautions and warnings for Propecia finasteride to be aware of :

  • Propecia is considered a pregnancy Category X medication. This means that Propecia is very dangerous for use during pregnancy.

  • It is not known whether Propecia passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start breastfeeding, be sure to consult your healthcare provider.

  • People with liver problems, including liver failure (hepatic failure), should talk to their healthcare provider before taking Propecia. The liver helps to clear Propecia from the body, and Propecia could build up in people with liver problems.

  • Report any breast changes to your healthcare provider right away. Propecia has been reported to cause breast changes (such as breast enlargement, breast tenderness, or tumors)
