Propecia® (finasteride) was the first approved and the most effective prescription treatment available for male pattern baldness. Having been available since 1997, it has undergone extensive testing, 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 hair growth.
Most men will begin to notice the results of Propecia within three to six months, with hair loss being reduced, and in some cases hair may even begin to grow back. By month nine, you should be maintaining the hair you have and you may even grow back some of the hair you have lost.
The break-down of testosterone is a natural process which occurs in men and in fact gives you masculine characteristics. Sometimes however, the process is also responsible for making your hair fall out. Hair loss in men is caused by testosterone when it's converted broken down into dehydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Propecia works by getting to the root of the problem and stopping the breakdown of testosterone into compounds that cause hair loss, and as a result stops hair loss – often reversing it.
By reducing the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the active ingredient in Propecia, finasteride, may also help prevent prostate problems such as prostate cancer.
One Propecia tablet should be taken daily – 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. Propecia only comes in one strength, so you do not need to decide which dose is right for you before getting treatment, only the quantity you require – one, three, six and nine month quantities are available.
Hair growth usually starts to improve within 3-6 months although you may need to take it for up to a year until you notice improvements. To get the full benefits, you should continue the full course of treatment, as the balding process 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.
The active ingredient in Propecia, finasteride, blocks the formation of DHT almost immediately however, visible improvements may come more slowly. In clinical studies, most men see the first benefit of Propecia® (slowing hair loss) as early as 3 months.
Propecia is a long-term treatment for hair loss and has been tested in a five year clinical trial. This study measured hair count in men with mild to moderate hair loss. The breakdown of the results are as follows.
The study also showed that:
