Propecia is a medication used to treat male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp. Male pattern hair loss is a issue in which men undergo thinning of their hair on the scalp. It often results in a thinning hairline and/or losing hair on the top of your head. Propecia is one of the best medicines known to get men’s hair back on the scalp.
This drug is specifically meant for men, and should not be used by women or children. It can also be used for other purposes other than the formal prescription.
Before taking Propecia, tell your doctor if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any medicine, or if you have liver disease, or irregular liver enzyme tests, prostate cancer, a bladder muscle disorder, stricture of your urethra or difficulty in urinating.
You need to take Propecia as advised by your doctor. You must not exceed the recommended dosage and prescribed period for this mediation. Moreover, also remember to follow the directions. Take it with a full glass of water. It is not necessary to take it either before or after meals.
For best results, you should use Propecia regularly. You may need to take it on daily basis for a period of three months or more. It works better when taken for a longer duration. If it does not show any effect after 12 months, then the chances are high that it is not the right treatment for your hair loss. If you stop taking this drug, you may lose the hair that you gained, within 12 months of stopping the treatment. In this case, you should consult your doctor.
