Propecia Side effects and Precautions

Hair Loss Treatment: Propecia

This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone (DHT). Decreasing the amount of DHT leads to increased hair regrowth and slower hair loss.Hair growth on other parts of the body is not affected by finasteride. Androgeneic alopecia (male pattern hair loss) is caused by androgen-dependent miniaturization of scalp hair follicles, with scalp dihydrotestosterone (DHT)implicated as a contributing cause. Finasteride,an inhibitor of type II 5 alpha-reductase,decreases serum and scalp DHT by inhibiting conversion of testosterone to DHT.

Treatment of hair loss

In the past few years,medicine has made tremendous strides in the treatment of men’s hair loss.With the advent of 5-alpha-reductace inhibitors such as Propecia in South Africa and the evolution of surgical hair restoration,living with noticeable hair loss is no longer inevitable.For the first time in the history it is now possible to stop the progression of hair loss and to replace lost hair through surgery with completely natural results.

However,with that said,the vast majority of hair loss treatments being marketed today are still nothing but ”snake oils”. If a hair loss treatment is not approved by the FDA or recommended by the American Hair Loss Association,chances are you are wasting your time and money. Remember that successful treatment of hair loss is greatly dependent on early intervention. It is critical to begin treatment with an effective product as soon as you notice the onset of hair loss.

How to buy Propecia online

It is easy to  buy Propecia in online since there are so many websites to sell the Propecia. Like blink health,super drug online doctor, getroman etc. With doctor’s prescription we can took the medicine from online itself also it is very simple and easy way. It is normal thing to purchase and not a such very big task to struggle.

Uses

This medication is used to treat male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) at the crown and in the middle of the scalp. It should be used by adult men only. This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone(DHT). Decreasing the amount leads to increased hair regrowth and slower hair loss. Hair growth on other parts of the body is not affected finasteride. Women and children should not use this medication. Finasteride is not approved for prevention of prostate cancer. It may slightly increase the risk of developing a very serious form of prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks.

Results

Finasteride treatment improved scalp hair by all evaluation techniques at 1 and 2 years  (P< .001 vs placebo, all comparison). Clinically significant increases in hair count (baseline=876 hairs),measured in a 1-inch diameter circular area (5.1 cm)of  balding vertex scalp, were observed with finasteride treatment (107 and 138 hairs vs placebo at 1 and 2 years,respectively,p<.001). Treatment with placebo resulted in progressive hair loss. Patient’s self-assessment demonstrated that finasteride treatment slowed hair loss, increased hair growth,and improved appearance of hair. These improvements were corroborated by investigator assessments of photographs. Adverse effects were minimal.

Conclusion

A finasteride exposure as a causal or contributory factor and depression-related event is difficult to assess based on the limited information provided in the cases and the presence of confounding factors (i.e.medical conditions associated with depression, use of medications labeled for depression. However we identified cases of positive challenges that support a possible association. Thus we have been discussed about Propecia in detail.

I was recommended Propecia from my doctor a couple months ago and I am so thankful that it has been working for me. I would definitely recommend it.

I was highly skeptical when I first was given Propecia. However, I was so embarrassed about my balding that I was willing to try anything. It took awhile but it eventually worked well for me.
