Propecia 1mg tablets help promote hair growth for men suffering from the onset of male pattern baldness. The active ingredient finasteride is a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor which works by reducing the levels of the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp and restoring a normal hair growth cycle. Clinical tests showed that two thirds of men that used the treatment saw a visible improvement in hair growth over a 2 year period and that 4 out 5 saw a decrease in hair loss.


 Tablet Strength: 1mg

  • Typically it will take at least 6 months before you will see a noticeable reduction in hair loss or increase in hair coverage.

What are the possible side effects of Propecia?

Like most products, Propecia may cause side effects. In clinical studies, side effects from Propecia were uncommon and did not affect most men. A small number of men experienced certain sexual side effects. These men reported one or more of the following: less desire for sex; difficulty in achieving an erection; and, a decrease in the amount of semen. Each of these side effects occurred in less than 2% of men. These side effects went away in men who stopped taking Propecia. They also disappeared in most men who continued taking Propecia.

The active ingredient in Propecia is also used by older men at a five times higher dose to treat enlargement of the prostate. Some of these men reported other side effects, including problems with ejaculation, breast swelling and/or tenderness and allergic reactions such as lip swelling and rash. In clinical studies, these side effects occurred as often in men taking a placebo as in those taking Propecia.

If you suffer from any of the effects mentioned above whilst taking Propecia you should contact your doctor immediately.

Will Propecia work for me?

For most men, Propecia increases the number of scalp hairs, helping to fill in thin or balding areas of the scalp. Men taking Propecia noted a slowing of hair loss during two years of use. Although results will vary, generally you will not be able to grow back all of the hair you have lost. There is not sufficient evidence that Propecia works in the treatment of receding hairline in the temporal area on both sides of the head. Male pattern hair loss occurs gradually over time. On average, healthy hair grows only about half an inch each month. Therefore, it will take time to see any effect.
