Propecia (Finasteride)

Propecia 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. Propecia can slow the loss of hair and hair thinning so the problem can be kept under control.

If you need to take Propecia 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.

Brand vs Generic?
Branded vs Generic What's the difference?

Generic Name - Each medicine has an approved name called the generic name. A group of medicines that have similar actions often have similar-sounding generic names. For examples, phenoxymethlpenicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin and flucloxacillin are in one group of antibiotics.

Brand (Trade) Name - Many medicines also have one or more bran names. This is chosen by the company that makes it. Several companies may make the same generic medicine, each with their own brand name. The name is often chosen to be memorable for advertising, or to be easier to say of spell than the generic name. For example, paracetamol is a generic name. There are several companies that make this with the brand names such as Panadol, Calpol etc

Buy Propecia online

Propecia is a type of medicine taken by men to slow hair thinning and hair loss if you suffer from early alopecia. Although there are no long term effects of hair loss, some men may find it distressing or embarrassing if it appear to age them prematurely. Propecia comes as a tablet, and works by reducing the actions of hormones which are closely linked to the thinning of hair.

You need a prescription from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy this medication online. To buy Propecia from Doctor-4-U, simply complete our online consultation and if you are deemed suitable, we will dispatch your medication usually within 24 hours. If you are not deemed suitable for Propecia, you will receive a full refund.

Do you need a prescription for Propecia?

Yes, you need a prescription from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy Propecia online. With Doctor-4-U’s easy consultation process, you can get a prescription for Propecia safely and quickly. Select the item you want to buy, click “Start Consultation” and fill out the short medical questionnaire provided. If you are deemed suitable for your prescription, it will usually be dispatched within 24 hours. If not, you will receive a full refund.

How is my order shipped to me?

When an order is ready for shipping, it is collected and delivered by either the Royal Mail or DPD depending on your preference (or possibly your location or the item you ordered). Each order is assigned a tracking number, which will be emailed to you at the time of dispatch. Your medicine will be sent in plain and discreet packaging that’s eco-friendly. We do not include any branding on our packaging nor any labels which inform readers what type of product is contained within.

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 Propecia work?

Propecia contain an active ingredient called finasteride, which 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 Propecia suitable for me?

Although Propecia 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 Propecia 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 Propecia?

Like all medications, Propecia 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 Propecia, and only use the following information as a guide. The recommended starting dose for Propecia 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.

Dosage Instructions
Take ONE daily. Please read the leaflet provided with this medicine.
