Many men struggle with hair loss as they get older. For almost 50% of us, it’s just part of life, like getting some wrinkles or going grey. Luckily, modern medicine has come to the rescue. A prescription for finasteride (Propecia) is one of the better ways to fight thinning hair along with other tips and tricks.
Things you should know about hair loss and Propecia
You take it for life. If you stop taking Propecia, you lose all the hair you gained while taking it.
Propecia is normally taken at higher doses (5mg) for an enlarged prostate, while a 1mg dose is used to treat hair loss. Insurance typically covers the 5mg dose for an enlarged prostate, but they typically do not cover the 1mg dose.
Sometimes you lose your sex drive, but this is rare and affects only about 3-4% of men.
It works. Eighty percent of men retain their original hair follicle counts based on when they started taking Propecia, so it’s best to start earlier rather than later. And 65% of men actually experienced regrowth of new hair, not just preservation of hair follicles.
It’s pretty safe and has few side effects as shown by our friends at Iodine.
