What is Propecia?
Propecia is a medication used to treat male pattern baldness, the most common cause of hair loss in men. The active ingredient in Propecia is called finasteride. Propecia can be taken by men over the age of 18, so if you see that hairline receding or you’re thinning on top, don’t worry, we’ve got you.
How does Propecia work?
Male pattern baldness is caused by a hormone called DHT which shrinks and blocks the follicles in your scalp which your hair grows out of. Propecia reduces DHT levels in your scalp, allowing your hair follicles to keep producing thick, long, full hair.
HOW LONG DOES PROPECIA TAKE TO WORK?
Propecia starts working as soon as you take it. You’ll usually have to wait a couple of months until you see visible differences as it takes time for your head to produce new hairs. Hair can look fuller and thicker after only three months, but six to nine months is more typical.
The active ingredient in Propecia is finasteride. It is this active ingredient that is sometimes referred to as ‘generic Propecia’. Finasteride is also sold as a cheaper alternative to Propecia. The two treatments are medically the same and both contain the same amount of the active ingredient. Propecia is the brand name given by the original manufacturers.
Propecia contains a drug called finasteride that reduces the amount of the baldness causing hormone (DHT) in your scalp. This prevents further hair loss, and for many men, it can help hair regrow and increase in thickness.
Propecia is medically proven to halt and reverse male pattern baldness. How well it works varies by person and it depends on the dose taken, but in clinical studies, it was found that 83% of men experienced no further hair loss after 2 years of treatment. Also, 66% of men showed an improvement in hair growth. Propecia is most effective in men with mild to moderate hair loss, so the earlier you start treatment the better your results should be.
Typically it takes around 3 to 6 months of continuous use for men to see results. If you stop taking Propecia, your hair loss will return. Propecia is effective in treating hair loss caused by male pattern baldness, however, it is not effective for other types of hair loss such as a receding hairline.
It usually takes around 3 to 6 months for men to see results.
No, Propecia is only effective on areas of the scalp that still have some hair growth. It will not work on areas that are completely bald.
Propecia works for as long as you take it. If you stop taking Propecia, DHT levels will build up in the scalp again, and your hair will start to thin and recede once more. Long term studies show Propecia continues to be effective over time.
Yes, Propecia is usually prescribed as a long term medication. If you stop taking Propecia your hair loss will return.
The active drug in Propecia is called finasteride. This is the substance which reduces DHT in your scalp. Propecia tablets contain other ingredients too, to help the medication work after you swallow it. You can find a list of these ingredients in the patient leaflet included in the packaging with the tablets.
Propecia is taken as a tablet, usually swallowed with water. The recommended dose is typically one tablet a day, but always take Propecia exactly as directed. You should continue to take Propecia for the medication to work. If you stop taking Propecia your hair loss will resume and you will lose the hair you have grown.
There is no best time of day to take Propecia, but try to make sure you take it at the same time every day so you have 24 hours between each dose. You should make taking Propecia part of your daily routine, so it becomes a habit you don’t need to remember.
If you forget to take your Propecia tablet do not double dose to make up for it. Just take your tablet as soon as you remember and continue as normal.
Yes. Propecia can be taken with or without food.
Propecia is not known to cause any side effects that can affect your ability to drive or use machinery.
Side effects are uncommon, but sometimes Propecia can cause a rash on the skin. This is usually mild and will heal over time.
Propecia has been found to cause erectile dysfunction in around 1 out of 100 men. This side effect should stop after discontinuation of use. There have been no long term studies into the impact on Propecia on fertility, however, poor semen quality is listed as a potential side effect. Again this should stop if you stop using Propecia.
No, Propecia is not effective for the treatment of hair loss in women, and it can be dangerous for pregnant women to touch.
Propecia and finasteride are both taken as tablets, they contain the same active drug and they work in the same way. They are both brand names of the same drug.
