What is Propecia

Finasteride, which is sold under the brand name Propecia, is a treatment for male pattern baldness. This is a genetic condition that causes testosterone to be converted into another hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which has a damaging effect on follicles and it can slow or stop the production of hair.

Propecia works by preventing this conversion of testosterone into DHT, helping to stop or reverse the balding process though it is most effective in men with mild to moderate hair loss.

The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any hair loss treatment, including Propecia.

Why choose Propecia?

Research shows that Propecia is effective in 9 out of 10 men who have mild to moderate male pattern baldness, and it can show positive effects as early as 3 months after treatment has commenced. In addition, it is shown to provide a 47% improvement in counts of anagen hair, which is hair in its growth phase, within 48 weeks.

How effective Is Propecia?

For anyone genetically prone to male pattern baldness, Propecia can be very effective in putting an end to your thinning hair as long as it is taken every day. One study showed that the active ingredient in Propecia, known as Finasteride, blocks up to 64% of the DHT conversion, which is more than enough to slow down or stop hair loss significantly.

Can I buy Propecia online?

Propecia can be bought online after an assessment with one of our doctors or with a prescription from your own GP. It comes in a 1mg tablet form and can be purchased in the following amounts:

28 tablets (1 month supply)

56 tablets (2 month supply)

84 tablets (3 month supply)

168 tablets (6 month supply)

How does Propecia work?

Men suffering from male pattern baldness will find that their body is converting their testosterone into a hormone called DHT. This hormone blocks vital nutrients from reaching the hair causing hair loss over time.

The active ingredient in Propecia, known as Finasteride, works by blocking this process which in turn slows down and even reverses male pattern baldness.

Will Propecia restore hair to an area of complete baldness?

Propecia is most known for stopping or slowing the balding process rather than restoring completely lost hair. This is due to the fact that whilst the hair follicle is still growing hair, the drug can help to create a healthier environment for it which will, in turn, kickstart it back into a hair growth cycle.

However, if there is a hair follicle still in place, even one with little or no hair growing from it, Propecia could help to restore its ability to grow hair.

How long does it take for Propecia to work?

You can expect to notice a difference to your hair density within 3 months of taking Propecia. Due to the miniaturised nature of the hair found in male pattern baldness, it may take longer than this to see more obvious results, but not be discouraged if this is the case. Simply continue taking the medication, as in some cases, it can take up to 12 months before full effects are seen.

If after 12 months you have not noticed a difference, go back to your GP or book an appointment with the doctors here at Click Pharmacy to discuss your options.

Side effects

Like all medicines, after using Propecia Tablets you may experience a number of side effects. These side effects are often mild and should wear off over time. Common side effects include:

  • Abnormal ejaculation
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Weakness
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • nausea/feeling sick
  • Tiredness
  • Difficulty having an orgasm

How often should I take Propecia Tablets?

For maximum effectiveness it is advised to take one capsule of Propecia Tablets daily at the same time everyday.

Can I take Propecia Tablets on an empty stomach?

You can take Propecia Tablets with or without a meal. However to prevent any nausea like side effects it is advised to take Propecia Tablets after a well balanced and healthy meal.

What is the difference between Finasteride Tablets and Propecia Tablets?

While both Finasteride Tablets and Propecia Tablets are used to treat hair loss, the main difference is branding. Propecia Tablets are the branded version of Finasteride Tablets, while finasteride is the active ingredient in both of these drugs.

Will the effect of Propecia wear off after I stop taking them?

Propecia has a half-life of 5 to 6 hours which means that to keep the benefits of the medication going, you must continue taking the tablets every day. Once you stop taking Propecia, your testosterone will begin converting into DHT once again, as before, as it will no longer be blocked from doing so by the drug. The hair loss process usually resumes within 6 to 12 months once treatment is discontinued.

Why is Propecia expensive?

Propecia is a brand-name tablet. It contains the active ingredient known as Finasteride – which is the generic version of it. Since it is a brand-name product, it costs more. However, Finasteride is the unbranded version of it, which is relatively cheaper. They function in the same manner.
