Some men who are taking Finasteride (Propecia) for male pattern hair loss say that they also lost their taste for alcohol, according to a preliminary research.
According to MedPageToday, the study's author, Michael S. Irwig, MD, of George Washington University, said that two-thirds of the 63 men who consumed at least one alcoholic beverage a week before starting Finasteride said that they ended up drinking less after they stopped using the drug.
According to Red Orbit, the participants of the study were healthy men who underwent standardized interviews in order for Irwig to gather information about their medical histories, alcohol consumpion and sexual function before and after using the drug.
According to Business-Standard, about 32 percent of the participants said that they saw no change in their consumption of alcohol, while three percent reported an increase in the consumption of alcohol.
The results of the study will be published in the November 2013 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research.
