What is Propecia (Finasteride) for?
Propecia (Finasteride 1mg) tablets are prescribed to treat mild to moderate male pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia) and are an orally taken treatment.
Propecia is most effective for mild to moderate hair loss over the top of the scalp (vertex). Although you can buy Generic Propecia online (Finasteride) and this should be just as effective, some men prefer to buy Propecia online as it is branded and more familiar to them. Propecia (Finasteride) is not suitable for men with complete hair loss.
How does Propecia (Finasteride) work?
Propecia prevents formation of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the hair cell, by blocking an important enzyme (Type II 5a-reductase) that works to convert testosterone to DHT.
DHT is an androgen (sex hormone) that gives a man ‘male characteristics’ such as body hair, but can also make you lose head hair faster, and DHT is usually present in higher levels in men who suffer from male pattern baldness. Because Propecia decreases the formation of DHT in the scalp and hair follicle, this can lead to reversal of the balding process; it increases hair growth and prevents further hair loss associated with male pattern baldness.
Without treatment with Propecia, the DHT will continue to contribute to shortening of the growth phase and thinning of the hair. In most cases, Propecia’s beneficial effects will show after about 3-6 months of daily use, but may take longer for visual effects.
Can I get Propecia on the NHS?
Propecia (Finasteride) is not available on the NHS for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). That means you must buy Propecia privately for male hair loss from a reputable source such as Medical Specialists® Pharmacy.
Hair Loss Pills Online
Many men when searching online to buy hair loss pills or other treatments, may come across a wide variety of weird and wonderful options to choose from. A lot of herbal remedies or vitamin pills may claim to ‘cure hair loss’ or make other outlandish claims. Be wary of such products and stay away from them. The fact remains that Finasteride (or its branded version Propecia) are the only orally taken treatments for male pattern baldness that are licensed in the UK. Only buy Finasteride online or Propecia from a fully registered UK pharmacy such as Medical Specialists®.

Is Propecia (Finasteride) better than Regaine for hair loss?
Propecia (Finasteride) and Regaine (Minoxidil) work in very different ways to treat male pattern baldness. Often, men will typically adopt a combination therapy and use the two medicines together.

No. Propecia (Finasteride) is a prescription-only hair loss medication for men, and you must complete an online consultation first.
What is the difference between Propecia and Finasteride?
Propecia is the brand new, whilst Finasteride is the active ingredient. 'Generic Finasteride' is simply unbranded medication that has been manufactured by one of a number of licensed UK pharmaceutical companies. Both Propecia and Generic Finasteride should be equally effective as they both contain 1mg of Finasteride. The generic version however is much cheaper to buy online from Medical Specialists®.
