Hi, I found on http://www.propeciahelp.com (where men are screaming their head off about finasteride), an interesting site! Here you can find multiple pdf's with adverse effects of a certain med. I found the one for finasteride: http://www.mhra.gov.uk/Safetyinformatio ... geNumber=2 Ok, large link. But: alopecia is one of the side effects, but it is 14 people out of 1534. Uhh, that is not much, but is 14 out of 1534 sideeffects! Not people. Why dont they give that also?. But I was looking for that. I dont know the reliabillity of this site, so be carefull with it. But it is from the British government. Use the paging with the alphabet for searching. Note that you have to enter the active part of the medicin, not the brand name. So not propecia, but finasteride. Not avodart, but dutasteride, etc. Be carefull how to interpret this all, because these are adverse reactions mentioned by patients. Not in controlled trials! So, it is not even sure the side effect comes from the med.
