Propecia is a popular and effective hair loss treatment; it decreases the level of DHT, the hormone responsible of making hair shrink. Finasteride is the generic version of propecia which is also available now at a lower price than propecia. Regaine (minoxidil) is a common topical solution you can try or consider a hair transplant.

What is Hair Loss?
Hair Loss is a common problem amongst men across the whole world, especially in men between the age of 30 and 60. The medical term for hair loss is alopecia also commonly known as “male pattern baldness”. Hair loss often follows patterns as per its name, starting with a receding hairline followed by thinning hair around the crown and temples. Most men will experience some form of hair loss before they reach the age of 30, as early as the teen s. However, it is more severe in the latter years. Although some men accept hair loss as a natural side effect of ageing, others can be distressed and experience low self-esteem, depression and loss of confidence.
What are Propecia 1mg tablets?
Propecia tablets contain finasteride 1mg per tablet. They are only available with a doctor’s prescription and only for use in men. It is the only licensed prescription treatment for male pattern baldness in the UK. They are convenient to use, as a once-daily oral tablet.
Propecia has been shown in trials to prevent further hair loss or promote new hair growth in 9 out of 10 men;
It can take at least 3 months for any visible results to be noticeable;
Propecia and Regaine can be used at the same time if necessary, as they work in different ways.
What is the difference between Propecia and Finasteride tablets?
