Propecia treats male hair loss, which is caused by an over-sensitivity to a particular hormone (known as dihydrotestosterone or DHT) found near the scalp. Propecia tablets increase the number of hairs on the scalp and prevent further hair loss, without affecting your body hair. They work by blocking the enzyme that processes testosterone and turns it into DHT. It leads to a small increase in testosterone and encourages hair growth. The active ingredient in Propecia is finasteride.
Swallow your Propecia tablets with a full glass of water, with or without food. The normal dosage is one tablet a day. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember, unless it’s already time for your next dose (i.e. it’s been about 24 hours). In that case, just skip the missed dose and take the next one as usual. Do not exceed the recommended finasteride dosage. If you have exceeded the dosage by accident, please seek medical help right away.
Most research on Propecia has involved men between 30 and 50, simply because many men over 60 choose to live with their hair loss. In general, men between 40 and 50 are most concerned with hair loss and would like to delay loosing their hair by 5-10 years. Propecia is just as effective at treating earlier hair loss in younger men (for example 20 year olds) as it is for older men.
It takes 3-12 months for the finasteride in Propecia to be fully effective and lead to hair regrowth (or to stop hair loss). This is because hair loss and regrowth are very slow processes that happen over a course of several months. The treatment should work within one year (3-6 months in most cases) - it won't work overnight. Propecia tablets will only stop hair loss (or lead to regrowth) for the duration of your treatment. Once you stop taking them, you will lose the hair that grew back within the next 6-12 months. In order for your treatment to be successful, you need to take finasteride tablets every day as advised.
Many illegal, unregulated drugs are sold on the Internet, so it’s very important that you visit reliable, CQC-regulated websites. Propecia tablets are only available on prescription as you need a doctor’s assessment to ensure Propecia is suitable for you. Propecia is not available on the NHS.
You must tell your doctor if you suffer from any kidney or liver disease, if you are allergic to finasteride or any foods. It is also important, that you inform your doctor of any medicines, herbs or hormones you are currently taking.
Finasteride tablets are not suitable for women or children. Men who are already taking Finasteride to treat prostate conditions are also advised to abstain from taking Propecia. It is advisable to visit your GP for a general check-up once a year. This is a common procedure when taking medication in the long-term.
You should take one Propecia tablet daily. The tablet can be taken with or without food. You should notice an improvement within 3 - 6 months of beginning your treatment. In order for Propecia to work, you need to take it regularly. It should take 9 to 12 months until you experience the same hair loss symptoms you had prior to taking finasteride tablets.
No. There is no correlation between an increased finasteride dosage and effectivity. You may need to be patient and continue taking your daily tablet for several months to see a significant improvement.
Please continue taking one tablet every day - do not take two finasteride tablets on the same day to make up for the dose you missed.
Every Propecia tablet contains 1mg of the active ingredient Finasteride.
Propecia tablets have a reddish-brown colour. They are octogonal, convex and are embossed with “P” on one side and “Propecia” on the other.
Like most other types of medication, Propecia can cause side effects in some men. These include:
If you are allergic to finasteride you may experience skin rashes or hives, swelling of the face and difficulty breathing.
Propecia can falsify the results of a prostate cancer blood test called PSA. If your doctor suggests you take this test, please ensure you mention that you are currently undergoing hair loss treatment with Propecia.
Please consult your doctor if you experience any of the following side effects:
Very rarely, there have been reported cases of infertility and breast cancer in men who take Propecia, but the relationship of these illnesses to the medication is not clear.
Please ensure you keep Propecia out of the reach of children at all times.
Pregnant women must not touch broken Propecia tablets. Coming in contact with the active ingredient finasteride can affect the baby’s sexual organs. If you are pregnant and have come in contact with finasteride, please consult a doctor immediately.
Finasteride is also prescribed as a treatment for particular prostate problems. If you are already taking finasteride, you must not take propecia in addition.

This is the first time I have used this service. Website was easy to navigate and online questions very clear. prompt response and delivery of malaria tablets.
I cannot believe how easy it was to order, pay and then receive the goods. They kept me informed throughout. I wish all companies were this easy to deal with
I have been prescribed the same medication for over 4 years, yet I still have the hassle of taking valued time off work to visit my GP/local pharmacy for repeat prescriptions. This tedious exercise costs me a half day's annual leave for little more than a blood pressure reading and ironically, I own my own electronic blood pressure meter! DrEd.com - inexpensive, well packaged and prompt delivery.
Placed order one day delivered the next in discrete packaging, treatment worked as directed. Would use again and reccomed
