Finasteride is the active ingredient in Propecia, a hair loss treatment that stems the progression of baldness and stimulates new hair growth. Here we explain how finasteride works and along with any information you may require before making a purchase of Propecia online.
Finasteride prevents testosterone from converting into dihydrtestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT causes baldness, so by blocking the body from making DHT, finasteride can effectively slow male pattern baldness and even encourage new hair growth.
The standard recommended dose of finasteride is a 1mg tablet every day. Finasteride should be taken at the same time each day. Should you forget a dose, take the tablet as soon as you remember. Do not take a double dose as this will not increase the potency of the medication, but instead may well lead to side effects. Finasteride can be taken either with or without food. However, if you have stomach problems then you should take tablets with food. After around 3 months you should start to see the benefit.
Finasteride is taken with a glass of water, either with or without food. The drug should be kept away from moisture and heat, and pack should stay firmly closed when not in use.
If you experience any unusual or painful side effects while taking finasteride, speak to your doctor immediately. Finasteride is generally a very safe medication, but like all drugs, side effects do sometimes occur.
