blog: your guide to buy propecia nd kamagra
A product of pharma company, Propecia is one of the most well known medication for hair loss in men. The generic name of Propecia is finasteride, as it is also the main active chemical component of the drug. There is another drug called Proscar that also has finasteride as the active component but Proscar is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia . And how Propecia was created as a treatment for hair loss is also related to Proscar. It happened when patients who took Proscar reported that their hair started to grow back after years of being bald. Merck & Co noticed the new discovered side effect of Proscar and started to do more studies about that. And in 1997, Propecia was created as the first medication for hair loss in men.
Clinical studies and reports from men who have used Propecia have shown that men who have used the drug for a long time ( for more than 40 months) have their hair grown back or their hair loss problem stopped. Also, the hair that grows back under the effects of Propecia appears to be thicker and larger.
Propecia can help stop hair loss because finasteride is an inhibitor of the Type II 5 alpha reductase enzyme. This enzyme causes hair loss in men by transforming testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and dihydrotestosterone has been discovered to cause hair loss in men. Dihydrotestosterone will decreases the size of hair follicles so consequently the hair will become thinner and stop growing. By inhibiting Type II 5 alpha reductase, finasteride will indirectly lower the amount of DHT in the man’s system and therefore allow his hair to grow back.
Both drugs that have finasteride as the main component, Proscar and Propecia, have been approved by the FDA. But there are still some side effects of Propecia that men who want to use to use the drug to treat their hair loss problem must be aware of. A drop in libido and sexual enjoyment is the most concerned side effect of Propecia. This side effect is usually reported by men who have used Propecia for more than 5 years. The decrease of libido and sexual enjoyment is directly related to how finasteride alters the level of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, the two main male sexual hormones. Besides this side effect, there is no other side effect has been reported by men who have took either Propecia or Proscar.
The dosage of finasteride in Propecia is 1mg. It is recommended to take one tablet of Propecia at the same hour daily. Propecia should be taken continuously without skipping doses but if a dose is missed, it is not recommended to double to dosage on the next day. Propecia should be taken with a full glass of water to increase the absorption rate. There is no need to change anything in diet when taking Propecia. One thing to be aware of when using Propecia to treat hair loss is that it will take time to see the expect result. It is common for men who use Propecia to still experience hair loss in the first few months after taking the drug. The true result of the drug can only be seen after at least 1 year of taking Propecia consistently everyday.
