Propecia works directly at the cause of hair loss by encouraging follicles in the scalp to keep producing hair. Propecia is the branded version of the drug Finasteride. Clinical trials have shown that 90% of men using Propecia long term kept their hair with 2 out of 3 men benefiting from new hair growth.
Treatment with Propecia needs to be used for 3-6 months before a benefit is seen and treatment must be continued to stop any hair loss.
The dose of Propecia is one tablet daily.
Propecia may also be safely used along with the topical treatment Regaine.
