Take Propecia off the market

    1. Petition by

      Sarah Temori

      Laguna Hills, CA

Thousands of men and even some women have been suffering from severe side effects because of this drug AND IT IS STILL ON THE MARKET. Although the most significant are sexual side effects, victims also suffer greatly from mental and physical side effects that become more prominent and persistent after they discontinue taking Propecia. There is no clear way to reverse these side effects which appear to be long lasting if not permanent in many cases. Many who have taken Propecia have lost their marriages, jobs and some have committed suicide due to the damage this drug has done to their bodies. One of my loved ones is a victim of this drug. It's painful to see how much he has to struggle just to make it through each day and do all the daily things that we take for granted. No doctors have been able to help him and he is struggling to pay for medical bills. He is only 23. Unlike many his age, he has to constantly worry about his health. Please stand with us and join this petition; tell Merck to take this drug off the market and help those suffering from its side effects get the medical help and compensation that they need. This could have been you or someone close to you. THESE PEOPLE DESERVE JUSTICE AT THE LEAST. 

Please share this petition with your family and friends and ask them to send it around. Each person that takes 30 seconds to sign this petition brings us closer to CHANGE. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THIS SUCCESSFUL.

      I am experiencing long term side effects from this medication. It is unbelievable that people can be prescribed medication by the medical community when they are not sick which causes these devastating symptoms. This medication needs to be removed before more people needlessly suffer...

      Finasteride is a dangerous and unstable medecine that should be taken off the market.

      My husbands life is destroyed.. he took propecia for 13 years before meeting me... now we cant have children, he is severely depressed, and he has pains in every part of his body... he's a 40 yo man in a body that of 90 year old ! Propecia is a poison, dont ever ever take it, not one pill, it will cause you permanent damage for the rest of your life.

      I suffer multiple persistent side effects from taking Finasteride. How this drug is still prescribed is a total mystery. Apparently it is OK to completely ruin the lives of the minority in order for the majority to have more hair...
