Propecia – Advantages And Disadvantages
One of the worst nightmares for adult men is the possibility of losing their mane. With so much pollution in the air and water, stress in day to day life and poor diet habits it is not surprising to see that most men start losing their hair as early as their 20s. There are many treatments available – but very few are effective in stopping hair loss.
Propecia (Finasteride) – An Effective Anti Hair Loss Drug
Presently, there are only two prescriptions drugs that really work, i.e. Rogaine and Propecia. The treatment of hair loss with Propecia is very different from the treatment with Rogaine.
Approved by FDA in 1997, Finasteride or Propecia is an oral medication used for treating hair thinning problems for men. It is not recommended for use by women. Hair loss is reversed within 3-12 months and you can see the difference as soon as 3 weeks after the commencing the treatment.
There are quite a few advantages when you use Propecia for treatments of your hair thinning problem:
(1) It Really Works – This is a great drug that really works and hence, it men do get back their lost hair over 12-24 months when they use this medication as prescribed. This is one of the only two available drugs that do provide real results.
(2) FDA Approved – Being FDA approved you can buy it secure in the knowledge that it has been tested and approved for safety and quality. The FDA approval is a great advantage – because there are so many spurious drugs and medications and it is very important that you know which one is safe to use and which one is not.
(3) Offer No Side Effects – this is one drug that not only works very well, but also causes no side effects. The hair fall will stop within 2-3 months; and you will experience hair growth within 6 months, which will grow steadily
There is one disadvantage with the treatment with Propecia and the other drug, Rogaine. Once you start it, you will need to continue with the treatment for life. In case, you stop the treatment, you will find that the hair will start receding in the same way it was before you took the treatment – and gradually you would go back to where you started.
In other words, if you want to enjoy your newly grown hair you will need to continue with the Propecia treatment. If you stop it, the hair would deteriorate one again.
