Propecia (finasteride) pills were the first prescription treatment for male pattern baldness to be approved, and is widely regarded as the most effective due to its performance under clinical trials. Available since 1997, it has undergone extensive testing, with some trials lasting up to five years, which have shown that Propecia has stopped further hair loss in over 90% of men. Two-thirds of men in the studies actually experienced natural hair regrowth.
Most men will begin to notice the results within three to six months of use, with hair loss being reduced, and in some cases hair may begin to grow back. By month nine, men should be able to maintain the hair they have, and sometimes partially regrow the hair they've lost.
Some men are susceptible to the negative effects of a testosterone by-product known as (DHT), and this sensitivity is the major contributing factor in male pattern baldness.
The active ingredient in Propecia tablets, finasteride, works by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Whilst the breakdown of testosterone is a natural process, some men are overly-sensitive to DHT. When this is the case, DHT attacks the hair follicles, eventually causing your hair to fall out. The treatment works by getting to the root of the problem, by eliminating the compounds that cause alopecia, and as a result, stopping or sometimes reversing the process".
Experiencing male pattern baldness, particularly at a younger age, can have devastating effects on your self-esteem. The immediate benefit of taking prescription Propecia tablets is slowing your hair loss, and restoring your confidence. Eventually, your hair may begin to regrow in the areas in which you've experienced balding.
Initial benefits (cessation of hair loss) are usually seen within 3-6 months after purchasing Propecia online, although you may need to take it for up to a year until you notice improvements. To experience the whole range of benefits, you should continue the full course of treatment, as the process of male pattern baldness will return if you stop taking it.
Clinical studies have shown that men who used an anti-inflammatory shampoo in conjunction with Propecia experienced the best results. In addition to this, you should ensure that your diet includes a lot of protein and iron from foods such as vegetables, fish, eggs and beans. These foods are known to promote hair growth and can improve the quality of your hair.
Another benefit is the fact it is a single daily oral tablet, with no creams or lotions required. These are often need to be taken at intermittent periods throughout the day, which can be inconvenient when you are in full time employment.
This hair loss treatment has been proven to be effective in as many as 90% of cases.
This causes a lot of men to ask: "How long does Propecia take to work", and that's perfectly understandable. The principal ingredient, finasteride, is a long-term treatment for hair loss, and has been tested in a prominent five-year clinical trial: The study measured hair count in men with mild to moderate hair loss. The breakdown of the results were as follows:
At 12 months, less than 1 in 5 men who were treated experienced any further hair loss. This is in comparison with over half of the placebo group.
In men treated for up to 2 years, over 70% of men in the placebo group displayed hair loss, compared with only 17% of men treated.
At 5 years, 100% of men in the placebo group demonstrated hair loss, compared with only 35% of men treated
The study also showed that:
At 5 years, 3 in 4 of the men treated with Propecia demonstrated an increase in hair growth.
The active ingredient, finasteride is also used to combat benign prostate enlargement in men. However, it has also been shown to be successful in minimising a man's chance of developing prostate cancer. Its success is well researched, and extensive studies have shown it to be effective in reducing it by up to a third in some cases.
One capsule should be taken daily, orally. It can be taken at any time, with or without food. If you forget to take your daily dose of Propecia, you do not need to take an extra tablet, just continue as normal. Do not take a double dose to make up for the one you have missed.
If you miss more than one tablet, please refer to the patient leaflet found below, or speak to your doctor.
Also, it's important to note that taking more than your specified dosage does not make Propecia work faster, or more effectively. You'll need to take the tablets for three or more consecutive months before you see the most positive results. Long-term usage is advised in order gain the maximum benefits. Once you've stopped taking your treatment, balding usually resumes within 6 to 12 months.
Propecia only comes in the 1mg dosage, so you do not need to decide which amount is right for you before getting treatment. One, three, six and nine month quantities are available. All UK prescription medicines are tested to ensure that the dose you receive is the most effective with the least amount of side effects.
The benefits of the 1mg Propecia dose is that you don't need to worry yourself about the correct amount, you just to remember to take it on a daily basis. This makes it the most convenient male hair loss treatment available, because it requires a simple, single, daily treatment.
Side effects from taking finasteride are not very common. However, a small number of men may experience sexual problems such as ejaculatory issues or loss of libido.
Of course, if you suffer from any potential side effects when taking Propecia finasteride, then it's always recommended to talk to your GP. You can also download our patient information leaflet at the bottom of the page.
It is recommended that you avoid Propecia if you're a woman, as finasteride is predominantly prescribed for male pattern baldness. Clinical trials have shown it to be ineffective in women.
Pregnant women should avoid handling crushed or broken tablets as studies have shown possible detrimental effects on the health of a male child.
Whilst there are no conclusive statistics correlating alcohol consumption with negating the benefits of Propecia, it is advised to avoid drinking heavily while taking this medication.
Please speak to your GP if you're going to have a blood test for prostate cancer.
