In this article, we will be addressing some of the inquiries that the UK users and potential users of Propecia have made concerning this medication. We will be answering these questions with short answers that will be as honest and as objective as possible. It is our goal for the UK patients to have as much info on Propecia as possible and we believe that this article will be able to clear out a lot.
Question #1: How does Propecia work?
Answer #1: Propecia is a pharmaceutical medication that works by preventing the conversion of the testosterone hormone into its variation, dihydrotestosterone in the scalp tissue by blocking 5 alpha reductase, which is an enzyme that is crucial for this conversion. By doing this, Propecia prevents the negative effects of DHT, the most important of which is the deterioration of hair follicles and their premature death.
Question #2: Is Propecia safe?
Answer #2: Yes it is. It is considered to be a safe medication that does not produce any significant or life threatening side effects and it can be used by the majority of men, regardless of their age and their medical situation. We would like to point out, though, that Propecia is a prescription medication and that you will want to consult a GP before you start using this medication.
Question #3: Will I experience any side effects when using Propecia?
Answer #3: It is very likely that you will not. Namely, Propecia has been found to cause side effects only in a very small percentage of men who take the drug. However, certain side effects are still possible and they include the following: dizziness, skin rash, runny nose, headache, changes to your sex drive and performance.
Question #4: Is Propecia a better solution to hair loss than some natural products?
Answer #4: Absolutely yes. Propecia is a medication that has been approved by the MHRA for use in the UK and as such, it has proven efficiency and safety. On the other hand, the natural hair loss products depend on some very flimsy proof to prove their efficacy and the result of this is that in the vast majority of cases they are not efficient at all. In fact, with almost all of these, if not all of them, you are simply wasting your money when you could be buying Propecia and putting an end to your hair loss.
