Hi there ~

Unfortunately the side effect of Finax is impotence, decreased libido as well as erectile dysfunction. However, these symptoms are reversible mostly after stopping the medication. I recommend that you consult your dermatologist before you embark on taking any medication to help with this condition. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
