Many people believe that hair loss is a condition to be accepted as the norm in today’s society. Few people like losing their hair, as having hair is seen as a sign of strength and virility, yet most feel powerless against it. There are actually many prescription treatments available to combat hair loss, stimulating your hair follicles and reawakening them to promote hair growth.
One medication we prescribe is very popular with those looking for hair loss treatments and has been clinically tested while delivering great results. With our prescription strength hair loss medication you can regain your confidence and enjoy new hair growth from the root.
Propecia tablets contain finasteride, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor.
This medicine works by blocking an enzyme (5-alpha reductase) in your body which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In susceptible men, DHT can cause the hair follicles to produce thinner and smaller hairs through a process called miniaturisation.
It is not understood exactly why DHT causes hair loss in some men, though it is thought to be linked to genetics.
Propecia slows down the rate at which testosterone is converted into DHT, halting hair loss and promoting hair growth. In trials, more than three quarters of the participants reported a halt in hair loss and more than half noticed their hair coming back.
Propecia works by stimulating the follicles responsible for creating new hair and strengthening old roots. As a clinically tested medication, it is an effective treatment against hair loss. Of course, this mimicking action does have certain side effects and you need to know if you’re at risk before taking any hair loss medication.
We've created a list of possible underlying medical conditions that could interfere with Propecia. It is important to talk to your GP before taking Propecia if you:
We may not be able to prescribe Propecia if you are likely to be trying for a baby or are under the age of 18.
All medicines carry the risk of causing side effects. Please read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment before beginning your treatment. Knowing what side effects to look out for is important when taking any prescription medication.
If the side effects you experience worry you or cause you any concern, contact your GP.
Side effects associate with Propecia include:
To ensure the doctor can prescribe Propecia safely, please fill in all the necessary criteria when completing your online consultation.
While taking Propecia, you must not donate blood until 4 weeks after stopping treatment.
Past studies have shown a correlation between men taking finasteride and breast cancer. If you notice any changes in your breasts while taking Propecia, such as lumps, pain or discharge from the nipple, see your doctor.
Propecia does not work for women with hair loss. Broken or crushed Propecia tablets should not be handled by pregnant women due to risk of damage to the developing child. Propecia tablets are coated to mitigate the risk of finasteride coming into contact with the skin.
If you believe you have experienced an allergic reaction while taking Propecia, stop taking the treatment and seek emergency medical attention.
More than 90% of men assessed by an expert dermatologist panel at Merck & Co reported positive results in either regrowth or strengthening of hair follicles.
It is considered safe to consume alcohol while taking Propecia.
While Propecia begins to work within 3 months, it may take a number of years before there is a noticeable improvement.
If you stop taking Propecia, it is more than likely that your hair loss with resume at the rate before treatment.
Any new hairs you grew while taking Propecia will most likely fall out after 6 to 12 months of halting treatment.
Finasteride can affect the quality of your semen and reduce fertility and ability to father a child. If this is of a concern to you, speak to your doctor about the effect Propecia may have on your fertility before beginning treatment.
Although hair loss is a common problem experienced by the majority of men in mid to late life, there is still some stigma attached. We understand that you may feel embarrassed when purchasing Propecia which is why we keep all of your information strictly private.
You can buy Propecia today and receive it in discreet packaging tomorrow.
