One of the problems most commonly experienced by men rather than by women is the loss of hair. Generally it starts with balding in the front part of the head and can lead to complete hair loss. There exist various types of medications aiming to prevent this undesired effect and Propecia is among them. The drug is designed to turn testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and treat men suffering from hair loss.
The medication must be taken at regular hours either with meals or not washed down with water. The prolonged treatment is required for the results to be seen. Any changes in medication's administration course or its complete termination should be discussed with a physician for all the treatment not to be wasted.
The active ingredient finasteride may raise allergic response (as well as related drug dutasteride). If you suspect having allergy to the drug make your doctor aware of it. People having problems with liver, urination, suffering from cancer of prostate etc. are not recommended to use the drug.
Overdose symptoms are not dangerous but are better to be examined. The medication bears a number of side-effects and in case of experiencing any or concerning the drug's compatibility with other medications apply to your doctor.
The medication is forbidden to children and women. This is vital that it should neither be touched nor taken because it can get into the organism through the skin and cause unwanted and dangerous side effects both to the health of a child and a woman.
