blog: your guide to buy propecia nd kamagra
Propecia and Proscar are both manufactured by the same company (Merck) and have the same active ingredient, Finasteride. Both drugs are used to prevent hair loss. Most people seem to be confused about which of the two drugs is most effective. The main difference of the two is the intended use and the amount of Finasteride in each.
The main use of Propecia is hair loss solution and each tablet contains 1mg of Finasteride while Proscar is mainly intended for men with enlarged prostates. One tablet of Proscar contains 5mg of Finasteride. Proscar prevents the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which can cause an enlarged prostate and later causes prostate cancer.
Proscar belongs to the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors class of drugs. This class is used to treat illnesses stimulated by dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Some of the DHT-induced conditions include
• Androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness),
• Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
• Prostate cancer
DHT binds receptors in hair follicles at the top of the scalp in people who are genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness. DHT hormones causes the hair follicles to shrink and lose the ability to grow thick and healthy hair. It results to hairline thinning and receding. However, the hair follicles at the back of the scalp are resistant to DHT which explains the pattern in male baldness. Finasteride cause the weakening of DHT concentration and fights male pattern baldness. The concentration of DHT decreases by 65% with 24 hours of taking Propecia.
