It can also be used to treat excessive hair growth in women and as a part of hormone therapy for transgender women. It is taken by mouth.

The reduction of DHT in the scalp is so far the only known and proven way to stop hair loss. It is now used as the first line of attack for the treatment of male pattern baldness with Propecia (finasteride).

For more information on the prescription medication patients should refer to the Finasteride patient information leaflet.

Is Propecia (Finasteride) Effective for Hair Regrowth?

Google Web Story

Testosterone is a hormone that gets converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics when boys go through puberty. Excess DHT has a negative effect on the growth of hair on the scalp. It shrinks hair follicles to a point where they can no longer produce hair. Finasteride solves this problem by blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Having less DHT in the body means that no more hair follicles will experience damage, which stops hair from falling. It allows hair follicles to regenerate and start producing hair once again. Finasteride is able to slow and reverse hair loss in most men​.

You can buy Finasteride today from UK Meds.

Finasteride typically starts working to slow hair loss on the scalp almost immediately. Because hair growth is slow, it can take from 3-4 months before the effects of finasteride are noticed. When Finasteride begins working, men should notice they are experiencing less hair loss, and that some hairs begin to grow back. After 6-9 months is when most men notice the full effects of taking finasteride.

How long should a man take finasteride before seeing results?

A man should take finasteride for one year continuously before knowing the long term results and whether Finasteride works for him. The response to finasteride after the first year is also a good indicator of how successful the long-term treatment will be. Not all men experience hair growth using finasteride. In these cases, finasteride typically prevents further hair loss.

Finasteride is a medication that helps men prevent hair loss.

Finasteride Tablets

Finasteride should be taken once daily, preferably at the same time each day. You should swallow one whole tablet with a glass of water, with or without food. Do not crush finasteride. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If you do not remember until the following day, do not take two doses together. It is unlikely that missing the odd tablet will have a negative effect on the results.

Finasteride should be taken continuously for as long as you wish to see results. Stopping finasteride will reverse the effect that it has had on your hair. Any new hair that has re-grown will fall off and you will continue to bald at the same rate as you did before treatment.

Finasteride blocks an important enzyme (Type II 5α-reductase), which is involved in the regulation of the hair follicle. A major cause of male pattern hair loss is the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), so by blocking the enzyme, Finasteride prevents further hair loss. Not only that but it can actually reverse the balding process and encourage new hair to grow.

Hair loss can cause psychological effects for men, causing them to become embarrassed and lacking in self confidence. Using Finasteride to slow and reverse this process can help men live happier lives.

Buy Finasteride

Finasteride is a prescription-only medication. Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.

Take the tablets by swallowing whole with a drink of water, with or without food. You should not divide, crush or chew the tablets as this may affect how well they work.

You should continue taking Finasteride daily, even if it takes 3 to 6 months before you start to notice any effects. Your doctor will be able to advise after this if the medication is working or not.
