"Hair loss doesn't have to be inevitable, especially with a treatment like Propecia, which has been clinically proven to stop the progression of male pattern hair loss."

What are the benefits of Propecia?

Propecia (finasteride) is an effective prescription medication designed to help stop the effects of balding and hair loss in male pattern baldness. It has been proven to help prevent hair loss with over two-thirds experiencing significant hair regrowth as well. In the study lasting over two years:

  • 99% of men experienced no further hair loss
  • 46% experiencing significant hair growth

Propecia is also the easiest hair loss treatment to use, as you only have to take a single tablet of 1mg finasteride a day for the medication to work effectively.

How does Propecia work?

Why is my hair falling out/thinning?

Finasteride works by preventing an enzyme within the body, type II 5-alpha reductase, from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the hormone responsible for shrinking the hair follicles on the scalp. This eventually stops the follicles from growing hair, as blood flow is constricted and as a result they fall out. When finasteride stops 5-alpha reductase from doing its job, DHT levels are reduced in the blood and areas of the scalp. This stops any further hair loss from taking place, and will help hair follicles to heal and grow hair again.

How finasteride works

How long does finasteride take to work?

Everyone would like an overnight solution to male pattern baldness, but it can take time for hair loss to be reversed. Finasteride does not work straight away; if you want to see positive results, it's important to keep using the treatment for at least three to six months after starting treatment. Most men notice significant results by the time they've used the treatment for a year.

Finasteride is generally considered to be a long-term treatment, as hair loss can return after you've stopped taking it.

Who can buy Propecia online?

Men over the age of 18 and suffering from male pattern baldness can buy Propecia pills online. Women should not take or handle the hair loss pills, especially if they are pregnant or attempting to fall pregnant as the ingredients can cause complications.

How do I take Propecia?

The recommended dosage is one pill per day, which can be taken with or without food and follow these basic guidelines:

  • If you miss taking a daily 1mg dosage, do not take an extra tablet; simply take the next tablet as normal.
  • You will need to take a tablet daily for three months or more before noticeable results can be seen.
  • Remember to only take prescription hair loss treatment as prescribed, to ensure maximum effectiveness but also personal safety.

Before and After Results With Propecia

Propecia's main benefit is to stop any further hair loss, but can also encourage hair growth. While this is not an overnight process, all research and patient feedback from clinical trails strongly supports these claims:

  • 83% of men noticed hair loss stopped after using Propecia for 2 years
  • More than 66% of men experienced some hair regrowth

Before and after results with Propecia

When using Propecia, the first results will normally start becoming visible after you've used it for between 3 to 6 months and the majority of men start experiencing a benefit after the first 12 months of treatment.

Treatment with Propecia will have to be continued in order to maintain results as DHT levels will alter back to normal resulting in further hair loss as the levels of finasteride decrease in the system.

Propecia side effects

As with every medication, there is a small risk of side effects. The severities of side effects whilst taking Propecia are not serious and are usually temporary. There are some side effects that may be more serious, but they are extremely rare.

"During clinical trials, Propecia only affected less than 2 in 100 men."

Cardiovascular

Heart palpitations are not a common side effect of Propecia but it is possible that they could occur.

Face

Though very rare, allergic reactions are a possibility with this medication. These can be characterised by swelling of the lips, face, tongue or throat. If you experience this you must stop taking Propecia and contact a doctor as a matter of urgency.

Genital area

It is possible that you may experience a lower sex drive or some kind of difficulty achieving an erection while taking Propecia. You may also notice that the amount of semen you produce decreases. Testicular pain is very rare but may occur.

Skin

Though rare, itchiness or a rash on the skin is possible with Propecia.

Common Propecia side effects

The most common Propecia side effects are only seen in less than one in every 100 men and they include:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction

It should be noted, however, that most men who experience problems with their erection do so only temporary and can ease over time taking the medication, or stop completely if the treatment is not right for you. If you begin to notice any signs of impotence and you are finding this worrying, then contact your doctor and get advice on whether you should continue using this medication.

COMMON RARE
Difficulty in achieving an erection
Less desire for sex
Decreased amount of semen
Skin rash
Itchiness

  • Difficulty breathing

Those most at risk of developing side effects
