Propecia is the brand name for the medication Finasteride and is used to treat male pattern hair loss.
Propecia reduces the level of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in your body. DHT causes hair follicles to shrink, resulting in the hair loss seen in male pattern baldness.
Lowering DHT levels increases hair growth and decreased hair loss of the hair on your head.
Propecia comes as a tablet to be taken orally. The dosage for these tables is 1mg. These tablets need to be taken daily and continuously.
Studies suggest that Finasteride (Propecia) can help regrow hair, although results will be different in each person, and even different depending on the area of your head that is losing hair.
That said, it’s better to think of Propecia as a way to help keep the hair that you have, rather than regrowing lost hair.
Another hair loss treatment is Minoxidil, which is a topical solution or foam applied to the scalp. Minoxidil is available over the counter in Canada, in concentrations of 5% or lower.
