Here's what our patients are saying.
At Felix, it’s our goal to make pricing as transparent and easy as the care we provide. Here’s how it works.
Mental illness is an umbrella term for a variety of different mental health conditions such as major depressive disorder, general anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and many others. Mental illnesses can cause you stress and have a negative effect on your ability to function on an everyday basis and interact with others.
Most mental health conditions can be managed by regularly taking medication prescribed by healthcare practitioners and by attending psychotherapy or counselling sessions with licensed mental health professionals. Other things such as getting the right amount of sleep, exercise and eating well, can contribute to mental health treatment.
Felix offers prescription medication for mental health conditions such as general anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder.
Unfortunately, we are only able to renew and adjust existing mental health prescriptions on Felix at this time. We’d suggest you visit your family doctor or local walk in clinic for an in person assessment of your mental health needs if you’ve never been treated before. If you are suicidal or having a mental health emergency, please attend the emergency, call 911 or the crisis line at 1-833-456-4566.
Medication coverage varies greatly between different plans, provinces and has specific criteria that determine eligibility. We recommend that you upload your private and/or provincial benefit card during the online visit so that our pharmacy partner can apply any coverage you are eligible for before shipping your meds.
Finasteride 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; women and children should not use this medication. Finasteride is not approved for the prevention of prostate cancer. It may slightly increase the risk of developing a rare but very serious form of prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks.
Finasteride 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
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking finasteride and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Take this medication by mouth, with or without food, usually once daily, or as directed by your doctor. If the tablet is crushed or broken, it should not be handled by a woman who is pregnant or by a woman who may become pregnant.
Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time each day. It may take up to 3 months to notice a benefit. You must continue to take this medication to maintain your hair growth. When you stop taking finasteride, any gain in hair quantity is generally lost within 12 months. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Decreased sexual ability/desire may occur. In some men, this medication can decrease the amount of semen released during sex. This is harmless, but has continued in some men even after stopping treatment. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: lump in the breast, nipple discharge, breast enlargement/tenderness/pain, pain in the testicles, inability to urinate.
