If you are looking for a FDA approved hair loss treatment drug, then PROPECIA is the one you were looking for. It treats the hair loss on the top of head (vertex) and also in the interior mid scalp area. It is for men only and there is no evidence that it is effective for receding hairlines at temples.
So if you are looking for hair treatments contact your doctor today and start using. PROPECIA. Start soon and see the effect. It should be noted that if you stop using it then its effect will go away in over 12 months.
To know the effectiveness of PROPECIA, a study was done on men from 18-41 years of age. Though this study was fruitful but it did not imply that it works on receding hairlines at the temples.
To see the results, you need to take it for minimum 3 months. If you see no result even after using it for 12 months, then it’s highly possible that further treatment is of no use. It works only if taken continuously and for long time. If you stop using it, hair loss will start again.
Though the results vary from person to person but it should be kept in mind that you won’t get all your hairs back.
Make sure you are 100% sure about how to take it. Remove all queries by questions to your doctor and take it as directed by doctor. PROPECIA should be taken empty stomach and with full glass of water.
Propecia should be taken by men only as it may cause harm to women and children even if they touch the drug. Before starting the treatment with Propecia you have to make sure you are not allergic to the active ingredient of the medication – finasteride. It is reported that the medication intake may increase the risk of prostate cancer development. To avoid it patients need to undergo specific medical tests. If you notice any abnormalities including pain, breast lumps and other changes, you need to seek urgent medical attention as these might be the signs of male breast cancer.
Before taking Propecia you should make sure you are not suffering from the following conditions:
• Urethra stricture;
• Prostate cancer;
• Liver disease;
• Inability to urinate;
• Bladder muscle disorder;
• History of allergy to similar meds.
The tablet should be taken once a day and washed down with a full glass of water. Take it regularly for a period administered by your healthcare provider.
Just like any other medication Propecia may cause side effects which include:
• Runny nose;
• Cold sweats;
• Skin redness or rash;
• Swelling of body parts;
• Lightheadedness or faintness;
• Breast tenderness and/or enlargement;
• Low sexual drive and inability to perform sexually.
The side effects connected with sexual activity may last for a while after stopping the medication intake.
There are other meds which may interact with Propecia, so it’s necessary to inform your doctor about all the drugs you are currently taking including over-the-counter, prescription medicines, herbal supplements and vitamins.
When taking Propecia it is advisable not to miss a dose and if that has happened, never double it to avoid overdose. If it happens, you need to turn to your doctor or call Poison Help line. Though, there’s no need to worry as Propecia overdose doesn’t cause life-threatening conditions.
