Finasteride & Propecia

Please note: Brand received may vary

Finasteride is a type of medication that may be prescribed for men suffering from pattern baldness, sometimes known as androgenetic alopecia, or more simply, hair loss. Symptoms of androgenetic alopecia include early hair loss and a receding hairline. Although there are no long term health side effects or impacts of alopecia, some men find that hair loss and a receding hairline can be distressing and embarrassing if it appears to age them prematurely. Finasteride can slow the loss of hair and hair thinning so the problem can be kept under control.

If you need to take Finasteride tablets, you can buy them online safely from a UK doctor such as Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription. It will be dispatched within 24 hours.

What is the difference between Propecia and Finasteride?

Chemically, Propecia and Finasteride are the same drug. They both have the same ingredients list (finasteride). The only difference is that Propecia has a brand name on it, which makes it more expensive. There is no difference in side effects, dosage, or interference with other medications between the two products.

However, if you have previously been taking Propecia, and are taking multiple medications that mean you may get them confused if you changed the name/packet type of your painkiller, you may wish to continue taking Propecia.

How does Finasteride work?

Finasteride contain an active ingredient of the same name, making it what is known as a generic drug, as opposed to a branded one like Propecia. Finasteride is a type of 5a-reductase inhibitor. The treatment works by decreasing the levels of DHT in the scalp. DHT is a hormone closely linked to the thinning of hair. Therefore, it reduces the thinning of hair which causes androgenetic alopecia.

Is Finasteride suitable for me?

Although Finasteride is designed for men suffering from hair loss, your medical history and other medications may mean it isn’t right for you.

Speak to your doctor before using Finasteride if:

  • You are allergic to finasteride or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information handbook
  • You are under 18
  • You already taking any medication contains finasteride or dutasteride to treat prostate problems.

What are the side effects of using Finasteride?

Like all medications, Finasteride may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Lowered libido
  • Depressed mood

If you think you may be having an allergic reaction (swelling of the hands and face, difficulty breathing) contact a doctor immediately.

You should always follow your doctor’s recommendation on taking Finasteride, and only use the following information as a guide. The recommended starting dose for Finasteride is one 1mg tablet a day. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water and do not crush it. Do not exceed the stated dose.
