Hair Loss

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Hair Loss. Below is what he has to say.

Usually, the reason for hair loss is due to male pattern baldness, a condition which is inherited. For some people, hair loss can provide significant psychological distress, and while there is no cure, medicines are available that are proven to slow the rate of loss. Regain, the brand of minoxidil, and propecia, the brand name of finasteride.

Finasteride, when taken daily, works by lowering the levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which has a harmful effect on folicles, causing them to thin over time. By lowering DHT, finasteride has produced positive hair growth in 86% of those who take it daily.

Minoxidil works by prolonging the growth phase of hair folicles and causes thicker strands of hair to emerge. It's effective for treating both men and women. If you're suffering from hair loss and you'd like to try finasteride or minoxidil, UK Meds can provide assistance in obtaining a prescription with their online doctor's service.

Finasteride is also known as the branded drugs Propecia and Proscar. The pharmaceutical company Merck originally developed Propecia to treat enlarged prostates. During the clinical trials of the drug on men with prostate problems, it was noted that the subjects showed an intriguing side effect – the growth of hair. After obtaining the FDA’s approval as treatment for enlarged prostates in men, the company decided to pursue another possibility, which is to use it in the treatment of male pattern baldness (hair loss) with Finasteride.

Propecia prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body.

Propecia is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. It is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children.

Propecia may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Propecia should never be taken by a woman or a child. Finasteride can be absorbed through the skin, and women or children should not be permitted to handle Propecia tablets.

Although Propecia is not for use by women, this medication can cause congenital disabilities if a woman is exposed to it during pregnancy. Propecia tablets should not be handled by a woman who is pregnant or who may become pregnant. The tablets are coated and will prevent contact with the active ingredient during normal handling, provided that the tablets are not broken or crushed. If a woman accidentally comes into contact with this medication from a broken or crushed tablet, wash the area with soap and water right away.

The FDA approved in December 1997 the use of a 1mg dose for treating androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness in men. It is the first drug to effectively treat the condition of male pattern baldness in men.

How does it work?

Finasteride works by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme whose function is converting testosterone into androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The 1mg dose of It lowers the DHT levels in the men’s scalp by as much as 60% when the drug is taken daily. The progression of hair loss is stopped efficiently by the reduction of DHT in the scalp. Most of the men who participated in the clinical trials experienced substantial increase in the growth of their hair.

Heredity is the most common cause of hair loss. It is known medically as “androgenetic alopecia.” Hereditary baldness is not caused by the hair falling out, but rather by normal hair gradually being replaced by finer, thinner hairs. You must lose over 50 percent of your scalp hairs before it is apparent to anyone. More than 50 percent of men have male pattern hair loss by the age of 50.

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

What are the benefits?

The 1mg dose of Propecia arrests the progression of male pattern baldness. The daily use reduces by as much as 60% the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels in the scalp, which is responsible for hair loss. People who begin to lose hair must immediately consult their doctor to ask for the possibility of using Finasteride to arrest the progression of the hair loss.

In many cases of men use it to treat male pattern baldness, a significant number of them not only arrested the progression of the hair loss but also noticed substantial increase in hair growth.

I don't know if the headaches have anything to do with this but they started a couple months after I started taking Finasteride... fortunately that's also when the hair loss stopped, otherwise I would've given up! I still take it and get occasional migraines but it's worth it to have a full head of hair.
It works a bit and I get no side effects. I'm still losing hair, but I'm old enough that I can only expect that. I'm not losing quite as much as I used to, even though it's hard to measure, and it looks a bit better too. Whether it's worth the cost is really up to you.
I've been taking this for 3 months... I'm only just now starting to notice a reduction in the hair loss. Is new hair growing in? I'm not sure, but I'm hopeful. It took a while to start working, but in the meantime I didn't notice any side effects. It's worth trying if you have some patience.
No more fear! I get active and work better than I did before. No hair loss. Very satisfied with that part. I'm a bit less sexual but I don't really care about a drop that small and I haven't noticed any size changes or bigger symptoms so it's all coming together quite well.
Take it yourself and see. I get what everyone else says about Finasteride having side effects and ruining your sex life... it's scary to think about. But for me it hasn't happened after 6 months taking it, and it has helped with the hair loss. All you can really do is give it a try... don't sweat it too much.
Nice bonus: It makes my skin soft too (HAHA, compared to what it was like now). Other than that... it helps with the hair loss. And it has a positive side effect too? You can say "recommendation", can't you?
Here's my problem... I took this for HAIR GROWTH. Or to get rid of HAIR LOSS. But I'm having the side effect of reduced libido from it. It's not a big deal for me but this drug is also for prostate stuff and it's strange it's having side effects related to that... Oh well. Works for hair loss.
Baldness runs in my family and I was resigned to losing my hair early. Imagine my relief when I found out that it was treatable! I have been prescribed a low dose and haven't had any unwanted side effects. It's stopped my hair thinning too badly and with the right cut you can't tell my hair isn't as full as it once was.
Supposedly theres a lot of side effects...I havent experienced any at all. Impotence and erectile dysfunction arent as scary as something everyone will notice anyway (hair loss). I have to recommend this if youre going bald or getting a pattern since it worked for me with no real side effects, not even the ones I listed... Just dont worry.
I initially started taking Finasteride for the same reason most men my age do: I was worried about losing my hair. However, I was talking it over with my family doctor and he mentioned that Finasteride has also been shown to prevent prostate cancer, which is another much more serious issue that men my age have to start seriously worrying about.
