Buying Finasteride 1mg – Generic Propecia

Propecia’s original patent expired in the UK back in October 2014, which meant that pharmaceutical companies were able to create their own generic version. With the same active ingredient — finasteride — the generic treatments work in exactly the same way.

Finasteride is the non-branded, low-cost tablet form of the drug Propecia. Finasteride is actually the name of the active ingredient in the branded tablets, making Finasteride tablets medically the same at a much lower price. Finasteride has been clinically proven to help with male hair loss, male pattern baldness, receding hairline, hair thinning, and in some cases even hair re-growth.

What causes hair loss in men?

Hair loss is caused by male hormone testosterone being chemically converted into an androgenic hormone known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Dihydrotestosterone leads to hair loss by causing your hair follicles to shrink, which in turn causes them to fall out. The symptoms of male pattern hair loss can vary from man to man, with men losing hair from different parts of their head. Usually, men see a thinning of the hair, as well as slower hair re-growth and a change in hair texture and quality. The change is normally gradual, however, that rate can vary from man to man, and it doesn’t usually affect facial hair in the same way.

There is a normal progression that is typical of male hair loss. First, you get a receding hairline that is then followed by thinning of the hair on the temples and crown of the head. This can then progress to complete baldness in some men, whereas others are left with horseshoe-shaped hair around the sides and back of the head.

There are also other forms of hair loss like alopecia areata (spot baldness), that can be brought on by stress. Finasteride would not be effective for treating this type of hair loss.

How Finasteride combats hair loss

The active ingredient, finasteride, is known as a 5α-Reductase inhibitor or a DHT blocker.

Finasteride tablets address hair loss by reducing the conversion of the male hormone testosterone into Dihydrotestosterone. This reduces the shrinkage of hair follicles, countering the process of hair loss.

By reducing this conversion process, Finasteride encourages hair regrowth. There is also an increase in hair thickness for the majority of men who take it. For Finasteride to really work, it needs to be taken continuously.

Finasteride 1mg results

Finasteride should be taken once daily, every day, to ensure it is effective. Men normally see positive results from finasteride hair loss treatment within three to six months. You need to be patient and persistent with your treatment initially – hair loss isn’t stopped overnight!

You may first notice that your hair loss or receding hairline slows and then stops. In some cases, if the follicle is still able you may notice hair re-growth. The effects of taking Finasteride wear off six months after you stop taking the medication, with the effects ceasing completely nine to twelve months afterwards.

It should also be noted that your hair follicles grow and change every three years.

Finasteride is most effective in treating hair loss where there has been some receding hair line and thinning. Finasteride is less likely to be effective in areas where there is already complete hair loss. For best results, you should start taking finasteride 1mg tablets as early as possible when you notice your hair thinning.

A supply can be made, under a patient group direction, following a free consultation; simply fill in the questionnaire and our pharmacist will get back to you. If treatment is suitable for you, a supply can be made, otherwise a full refund will be issued
