blog: your guide to buy propecia nd kamagra
Baldness is an embarrassing health condition that many men suffer. But nowadays, there are many medications to treat hair loss in men. Among these medications, Propecia, a product of Merck & Co, is the most well known. Men who have used Propecia have reported that after several months, their hair has started to grow back and become even thicker and larger than before. Since 1997, sales of Propecia worldwide has been increased gradually as more men have known and trusted the medication.
The active component of Propecia is finasteride. There is another drug named Proscar that also has finasteride as the main component but Proscar is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia instead of hair loss. And as a matter of fact, Propecia was created as the first medication for hair loss in men after men who took Proscar reported that their hair grew back after years of being bald. Finasteride can help men grow back their hair because finasteride is an inhibitor of an enzyme called Type II 5 alpha reductase. Studies have shown that this enzyme converts the hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone and dihydrotestosterone is known for directly causing the hair loss problem. By blocking the Type II 5 alpha reductase enzyme, finasteride will indirectly prevent the production of dihydrotestosterone thus allow the hair to grow normally. As dihydrotestosterone is both related to hair loss and benign prostatic hyperplasia, finasteride can be used to treat both conditions.
Propecia side effects
Both Proscar and Propecia have been approved by the FDA for their treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia and hair loss. And both drugs have also been used by men around the world for decades. So Propecia can be considered as a safe drug. However, men who took Propecia may experience a drop in libido and sexual enjoyment. This side effect happens because both testosterone and dihydrotestosterone are sexual hormones and finasteride changes the balance of the two hormones in a man’s body. But this side effect is usually reported by men who have took, either Proscar or Propecia, for a very long time, probably over 5 years. Besides that, there is no other side effect of Proscar and Propecia that is worth-concerning. However, if anything abnormal appears during the time you take Propecia, you should always mention Propecia to your doctor.
Another thing to be aware of is that it will take several months to start noticing the effects of Propecia on hair loss. It is not unusual for men who use Propecia to still experience hair loss in the first few months after taking the drug. The full result can be seen after at least 12 months of using Propecia consistently everyday.
Each Propecia tablet has 1mg of finasteride. Researches has shown that it is better to take Propecia at the same time everyday. Once taking Propecia, you should not skip any dose. But if you miss a dose, you should not take an extra dose on the next day. It is recommended to take Propecia with a full glass of water to increase the absorption rate. Propecia can be taken safely with an empty stomach. Propecia tablets must be stored in a cool, dry place and far away from children and pets.
