Have you begun to notice subtle signs of hair loss on the top of middle region of your head?

Healthy men who witness this may be good candidates for Propecia—an alluring prescription medication and many times the coherent first step in treating hair loss for men.

Propecia is the first and only FDA-approved oral treatment used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). It was solely designed for treating hair loss on top of head and mid-scalp area or middle front of head.

How does Propecia work?

Finasteride, the generic name used for Propecia is the active ingredient that works by reducing the amount of DHT in the body. This chain effect creates a destructive effect on genetically predisposed hair follicles and ultimately slows, prevents or reverses hair loss.

Patients typically start to see effects in 3 or 4 months with extensive headway in 6 to 12 months. A small number of patients experienced sexual side effects including less aspiration to engage in sex, difficulty in reaching an erection, and a decrease in the amount of semen.
