Question: Does a young person taking propecia risk having their growth stunted?

Answer: Propecia is not usually prescribed to teenagers, if that is the age you are asking about. The effects of Propecia (finasteride) on teens is not totally clear, but it is not recomended to those still growing. Propecia intyerferes with the testosterone conversion into DHT ( a major cause of Baldness). DHT is also vital to other growth developments – beard, pubic hair, etc. Dr. Jones
