Will PROPECIA work for me?
For most men, PROPECIA increases the number of scalp hairs, helping
to fill in thin or balding areas of the scalp. Men taking PROPECIA noted a
slowing of hair loss during two years of use. Although results will vary,
generally you will not be able to grow back all of the hair you have lost.
There is not sufficient evidence that PROPECIA works in the treatment of
receding hairline in the temporal area on both sides of the head.
Male pattern hair loss occurs gradually over time. On average, healthy
hair grows only about half an inch each month. Therefore, it will take time
to see any effect.
You may need to take PROPECIA daily for three months or more before
you see a benefit from taking PROPECIA. PROPECIA can only work over
the long term if you continue taking it. If the drug has not worked for you
in twelve months, further treatment is unlikely to be of benefit. If you stop
taking PROPECIA, you will likely lose the hair you have gained within 12
months of stopping treatment. You should discuss this with your doctor.
