How on earth is this tablet still out there?

My brother and I recently started taking Propecia. After a month my brother began experiencing side effects (depression, sexual etc.) Upon hearing this I stopped and immediately got total sexual side effects mixed with depression. I’ve gone to see 3 doctors, 2 of which didn’t really believe in it and the third told me to wait 6 weeks. After about a week I made a decent recovery then things started to get worse and now I’m almost back to square one. It’s been about 4 weeks and I’m getting desperate. I’ve read your website and appreciate what you’re doing but I want to really find out how many people is this permanent in percentage wise? How many people have recovered? All I read is negative stuff and although this works to raise awareness it’s very distressing. I know there’s no cure but what has helped – exercise, certain tablets, foods etc.? Doctors just say to me, “You’re young, wait and we’ll see” so I’d appreciate some honest advice. How on earth is this tablet still out there?
