How does Propecia work?

Propecia significantly reduces DHT, a key cause of hair loss, by inhibiting the formation of DHT in your scalp. By reducing DHT, it appears to inhibit the further shrinking of affected hair follicles. Scientists believe DHT and family history are key factors in hair loss.

Propecia blocks the formation of DHT and, in this way, appears to interrupt the development of male pattern hair loss and helps reduce further hair loss and regrow visible hair.

Propecia is the first and only FDA-approved pill proven to treat male pattern hair loss on the vertex (top of head) and anterior mid-scalp area (middle front of head) in men.

It may take 3 to 6 months for a reduction in hair loss to be noticed. It is important to keep taking Propecia for as long as your doctor tells you. If you stop taking Propecia, you are likely to lose the hair you may have gained within 9 to 12 months
Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp, often resulting in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. This condition is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic factors and a particular hormone, DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

DHT contributes to shortening of the growth phase and thinning of the hair (see picture). This process leads to male pattern hair loss. These changes typically start to occur in some men in their 20s and become more common with age. Once hair loss has occurred over a long period of time, the hair may be permanently lost.

Male pattern hair loss is progressive, so the earlier you start taking Propecia, the better. Propecia can work over the long term only if you continue taking it. If you stop taking it, you will likely lose any hair you have gained within 12 months of stopping treatment.

Continuous use once a day for 3 to 6 months is required before benefit is seen, and effects are reversed 6 to 12 months after treatment is discontinued so continuous use is recommended to sustain benefit.

Propecia should only be used if prescribed for you by a registered doctor. Propecia is only for men over the age of 18 and should not be used by women due to serious risks in pregnancy and breast feeding. Propecia should not be taken by men who are taking Proscar or any other 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor medicines for benign prostatic hyperplasia or any other condition.
