What is Propecia prescribed for?
Propecia is prescribed for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and interior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss, also called androgenetic alopecia, is the most common hair loss in men. This type of hair loss is easily recognized by its distinct pattern of a receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown. Inherited male pattern baldness usually has no medical ill effects. However, sometimes baldness has more serious causes, such as certain cancers, medications, thyroid conditions, and anabolic steroids.
You can buy Propecia online at My Drug Center, and we also have the Finasteride generic available as well.
How does Propecia work?
Propecia tablets contain the active ingredient Finasteride, which is a type of medicine known as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. The Finasteride dosage in the medication inhibits the action of an enzyme called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT can damage hair follicles, which leads to hairloss. The decrease of the DHT enzyme can also lead to reversal of the balding process. Therefore, the Finasteride dosage in Propecia can prevent future hair loss while also restoring hair that has already stopped growing.
