What is Propecia

Propecia contains 1mg of Finasteride, a systemic DHT inhibitor, which has been used for over 20 years at five
times the dosage (in the form of Proscar) to help treat men with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH).
Over 20 years ago, a drug by the name of Proscar was approved for prevention of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
(BPH). Its active ingredient was 5mg of Finastride, and it was taken once daily by men over 60. Finasteride was
shown to inhibit the formation of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is known to help in the
formation of Prostate Cancer. Dihydrotestosterone is also known to be the cause of male hair loss

2 Year Propecia Study

Pharmaceuticals sought to find the smallest effective quantity of finasteride and test its long-term effect
on 1,553 men between ages 18 and 41 with mild to moderate thinning hair. Based on their research, 1mg daily was
selected, and after two years of daily treatment, over 83% of the 1,553 men who were experiencing male hair loss had actually
maintained or increased their hair count from baseline. Visual assessments concluded that over 80% had
improved appearances.

5 Year Propecia Study

According to an assessment of photographs by an independent panel of dermatologists, in a 5-year clinical study
of 279 men, 9 of 10 achieved visible results: 48% experience hair regrowth and 42% stopped losing their hair

What are the Possible Side Effect of Propecia

In clinical trials under 2% of Propecia users experienced mild side effects which included less desire for sex,
difficulty in achieving an erection and decreased amount of semen. Side effects were reported to have worn off
quickly when the users stopped taking Propecia, or with continued use. Recent reports have suggested the
effects might not wear off for all users.
