Small percentage: Sexual side effects are listed at 3% overall; however, if they occur they can persists for months after stopping the medication. Depression is a more common side-effect. Be certain to discuss this with your prescribing physician, and review your medical history, medications and physical findings, as they relate to propecia (finasteride).
