What is Propecia?

Propecia is a medication used to treat male pattern baldness, the most common cause of hair loss in men. 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 contains a drug called finasteride that reduces the amount of the DHT in your scalp. This prevents further hair loss, and for many men it can help hair regrow and increase in thickness.


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.

How safe is Propecia?

Propecia is an effective treatment for male pattern baldness which has gone through extensive clinical testing and is approved by government health agencies worldwide. It’s safe for most men to use, but like any other medication, it can have side effects. These side effects are usually mild, but in some rare cases, they can be more severe. Pregnant women or women who are trying to get pregnant must not touch the tablets as they can cause harm to an unborn baby.


Propecia is a brand name medication discovered and marketed by Merck, and finasteride is the active ingredient in Propecia that treats hair loss.

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 effective is Propecia?

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 on average DHT levels in men’s scalps can be reduced by up to 70%, with around 80% of men seeing no further hair loss, and 66% of men seeing an increase in hair growth.

How long does Propecia work for?

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.

What is in Propecia?

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.

How to take Propecia?

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.

When is the best time to take Propecia?

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.

Can Propecia be taken with food?

Yes. Propecia can be taken with or without food.

Can I drive or use machinery after taking Propecia?

Propecia is not known to cause any side effects that can affect your ability to drive or use machinery.

What are the differences between Propecia and finasteride?

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.
