All prescriptions are unique and tailored to each patient and their particular set of requirements when treating male pattern baldness. The instructions concerning how you should take this medication may vary to ensure maximum effectiveness when taking Propecia tablets.

What is Propecia?

Propecia (finasteride) is a popular and highly effective medication that was the very first treatment approved to treat male pattern baldness. This medication belongs to a group of medicines called Type 2 '5-alpha reductase inhibitors'. You can buy Propecia tablets online here at Medilico to prevent hair loss and furthermore encourage hair regrowth. Multiple case studies have shown that 83% of men notice that their hair loss had stopped after taking Propecia 1mg tablets for a period of two years. Also, over 66% of men experienced hair regrowth during this time period.

Propecia tablets can be successfully taken on a yearly basis and are taken orally in the form of a 1mg pill to be taken once per day. Unlike creams and ointments used for hair loss, Propecia tablets are unlikely to cause irritation and are far easier to use on a day-by-day basis.

How does Propecia work?

Propecia contains the active ingredient finasteride and works by preventing Type 2 '5-alpha reductase inhibitors' (an enzyme located in the body) from encouraging the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (also referred to as DHT). DHT shrinks hair follicles located on the scalp, which directly causes the hair to fall out because blood flow to the follicles is constricted. This then leads to baldness. Propecia tablets reduce the amount of DHT located in blood and certain sections of the scalp. This will stop further hair loss and can encourage hair to regrow by helping to heal the previously shrunken hair follicles.

How to take Propecia

Propecia 1mg tablets should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. In order to take this treatment correctly, you will be required to take one 1mg tablet orally per day. This tablet can be taken at any time during the day, with or without the consumption of food. This medication is therefore extremely easy to use when treating hair loss. It should be noted that the effectiveness of Propecia will not improve if you take more than one tablet per day. Therefore the recommended dosage of one 1mg tablet per day should not be exceeded.

Taking Propecia tablets correctly

If you do take more than one tablet by accident you should inform your doctor as soon as possible. If you forget to take a dose you can simply skip that dose and take your next dose as scheduled. You must never take a double dose to make up for a dose that you have missed.

If you stop taking Propecia that it can take three to six months to take full effect. You should take this medication for as long as the doctor recommends it. Stopping this treatment can lead to the loss of hair that you have gained within a period of nine to twelve months.
