What is Propecia?

Propecia (also known as Finasteride), is a tablet that’s taken daily to prevent hair loss in men who experience male pattern baldness. While it can’t really reverse hair that’s already been lost, Propecia helps to slow down the effects of the condition considerably.

So if you’re noticing your hair starting to thin or your hairline starting to recede, Propecia might just be the answer.

How does Propecia work?

Propecia lowers the levels of DHT in the scalp, which can slow the rate of hair loss from male pattern baldness. It may also reverse some of the hair loss in the best cases. In clinical studies, the drug has shown to be effective in almost nine out of 10 men.

Is Propecia effective?

Propecia results have proven that it can greatly slow down the effects of male pattern baldness and even help with hair regrowth. It’s only thought to be effective in mild to moderate cases of hair loss, so it will have little effect if you’ve lost most of your hair. Studies have shown positive results in over half of men, which range from good to excellent.

How to use Propecia

Each Propecia tablet should be taken once a day, preferably at the same time. It should be swallowed whole with water and can be taken with or without food.

If you forget to take a pill, don’t take two to make up for a missed tablet. Take the next scheduled tablet and carry on as you normally would.

How long does Propecia take to work?

Propecia results after three months should be noticeable, but it may be six months or more before its full effects can be seen.

Why does it take Propecia so long to work? It takes the follicles this long to produce new hair, so some patience is needed. If you haven’t noticed any improvements after 12 months, you should speak to us about alternative treatment options.

If I take too much Propecia, what should I do?

Taking more Propecia than has been instructed will not lead to better results, and it won’t work any faster. If you have taken too much Propecia you should seek immediate medical attention.

For more information, contact our clinician, or see the package leaflet that comes with your treatment for further guidance.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body.

Propecia: FAQ

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Is Propecia safe?

Answer:
Finasteride and Propecia are safe for the vast majority of men to take. There are some conditions that might make its use unsuitable, but these usually relate specifically to prostate conditions or allergies.

The most common side effects are thought to affect under one in 100 patients and shouldn’t affect hair growth on any other part of the body.

A few men feel that Propecia damages their sex drive or causes low mood even after they’ve stopped taking it, although this isn’t supported by research. If you’re worried about the side effects of Propecia, you can talk to one of our clinicians.

What is the recommended dosage of Propecia?

Answer:
Propecia 1mg tablets should be taken once a day, with or without food, for male pattern baldness. While there are stronger dosages, such as Propecia 5mg, this is usually prescribed to treat BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).

If you take more Propecia than you should, get in touch with our clinician immediately.

What is the difference between Finasteride and Propecia?

Answer:
Propecia is a brand of Finasteride, and finasteride is the active ingredient in the treatment. The main differences between the two are appearance and price. Finasteride is a generic medication, so it may be slightly cheaper than Propecia, and the packaging and the way the pill looks may differ as a result.

Although Propecia and Finasteride contain the same active ingredient, they do contain different inactive ingredients. It’s unlikely you would get side effects on one and not the other. But if you experience any side effects, you should discuss these with our clinician. These side effects are rare, but they may be key to which of the two treatments is most suitable (and safe) for you to use.

Can I buy Propecia over the counter?

Answer:
It is not possible to buy Propecia over the counter, so you will need a private prescription. Our clinicians can help you know whether Propecia is safe for you. All you need to do is tell us a bit about your health, and we’ll recommend some treatments that are safe for you. From there, you can choose the option that suits you best.

Why should I buy Propecia online with Treated?

Answer:
We’ll recommend hair loss treatments that are tailored just for you. Tell us about your health, and we’ll advise you on hair loss options that are safe and suitable. Choose which treatment you’d like, and how often you’d like us to send your treatment to you (and the amount of it each time too).

You’ll also have access to our clinicians whenever you need them, and they’ll get in touch with you on a regular basis to see how you’re getting on with your treatment.
