Propecia is a prescription medication used to treat male pattern baldness. It is available in tablet form and is taken once daily.
What is Propecia?
Propecia is a medication used to treat male pattern hair loss. Propecia increases hair growth on the scalp and prevents further hair loss in men. It can only be useful for those who have mild to moderate hair loss.
How does it work?
The tablets contain a medicine called finasteride which belongs to a group of medications called Type II '5-alpha reductase inhibitors'. Propecia works by reducing the levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a hormone that causes hair loss.

Propecia patient leaflet
Propecia (finasteride) works by blocking the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which plays a role in hair loss. It's important to note that Propecia only works for male pattern baldness; it does not help with other types of hair loss. Results from taking Propecia can take up to a year to be visible. Some men may experience side effects like decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and depressed mood while taking Propecia. If you experience any of these side effects, talk to your doctor about whether or not Propecia is right for you.
This is a quick process and should only take 1 - 2 minutes. All of your answers are confidential, and just like a GP consultation, you will know what treatment is most suitable for you instantly upon completion.
Once you have completed the quick online form, select the treatment option most suitable to you and checkout securely.
We will dispatch your order using our express next-day courier service from our pharmacy partners across the UK. You will receive your treatment discreetly to the comfort of your home/ selected address.
Is Propecia a topical medication?
No, Propecia is not a topical medication. It is a pill that you take orally.
Can Propecia regrow hair?
Propecia can help to regrow hair in men who are experiencing male pattern baldness. It works by inhibiting the production of DHT, which is a hormone that contributes to hair loss. While Propecia is effective at slowing down hair loss and promoting hair growth, it's not a cure for baldness. Once you stop taking Propecia, your hair loss will likely resume.

What is the difference between Propecia and Rogaine?
Propecia and Rogaine are both treatments for hair loss. Propecia is a pill that you take orally, while Rogaine is a topical solution that you apply to your scalp. They both work by inhibiting the production of DHT, which is a hormone that contributes to hair loss. While they are both effective at slowing down hair loss and promoting hair growth, they are not cures for baldness. Once you stop taking Propecia or using Rogaine, your hair loss will likely resume.
Why shouldn't you take Propecia?
There are a few reasons why you shouldn't take Propecia. First, it's a prescription medication, so you need to talk to your doctor about whether or not it's right for you. Second, it can cause sexual side effects like erectile dysfunction and decreased libido. Finally, it can also impact your fertility. If you're thinking about starting a family, you should talk to your doctor about whether or not Propecia is right for you.
How do I order my medication?
Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product. Other products will also require a prescription; in this case, you will need to complete the online consultation, and then one of our partner pharmacy prescribers or doctors will review the online consultation questions and approve the order for delivery if you are eligible to purchase the item.
