What Is Propecia?

Propecia (finasteride) is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. Propecia is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children.

What Is Generic Finasteride?

Generic Finasteride, the generic version of Propecia, has the exact same medical composition and active ingredient (Finasteride) as its branded equivalent.

The UK patent for Propecia, manufactured by Merck Sharp and Dohme (MSD) expired on 11th October 2014. This means that other pharmaceutical companies can now supply a generic equivalent of Propecia, known as Generic Finasteride.

Propecia tablets on the NHS

Propecia is not currently available on the NHS when used for treating male pattern baldness. The NHS considers this as a cosmetic treatment and consequently will not cover use for this purpose.

How to take it

One tablet a day on an ongoing basis. If you stop taking it you're likely to start losing your hair again.

How quickly it works

When used to treat male pattern baldness you should notice the effects and stop losing your hair within three to six months. Nine out of ten men find notice visible results over a 5 year period.

Propecia works the best on the back of your scalp or the vertex.
After 2 years of treatment: 99% of men had visible results (growth or no further hair loss).

  • 66% had hair growth
