Propecia and HIV
May 28, 2012

I have been using Propecia for some time and it severely affected my sex drive. This has become even worse since I became Positive one year ago, though I am not on ART, and seems to be stable. What could the cause of this be? Would natural supplements help or should I see a doctor for this?

Response from Mr. Vergel

The FDA sent a warning on this a while ago: Propecia and Proscar Cause Sexual Dysfunction, the FDA says

Have your doctor check your free and total testosterone to see if you need replacement.


How can me and my child be negative?
