Regulated online doctor and pharmacy Dr Fox now offers newly licensed generic finasteride 1 mg, an alternative to Propecia, at up to 50% less than other UK online chemists.

“We are pleased to be able to make Propecia/finasteride available at such good prices. It is often an effective solution for men looking to keep their hair as long as possible.”

Newly licensed generic finasteride 1mg, which is medically the same as 1mg Propecia tablets, is taken to stimulate new hair growth. It is now available at significantly reduced prices. Regulated online doctor and pharmacy Dr Fox now offers it at up to 50% less than other UK online chemists.

Male pattern hair loss (or androgenetic alopecia) affects up to 7 out of 10 men by the time they reach 80 years of age. Generally it starts much earlier in life when men are in their 20s, with a receding hairline at the temples and/or thinning at the top and front of the head.

The condition is related to hormones and genetics, and may be inherited from either the mother’s or father’s side of the family. Men who experience hair loss are shown to be sensitive to the effects of a naturally occurring hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which reduces hair follicles in the scalp.

Taken once a day in the form of a 1 mg tablet, Propecia/finasteride works by inhibiting this process of hair follicle reduction, thereby lessening the degree of hair thinning in the scalp, while stimulating new hair growth. Clinical studies have shown the hair loss treatment to be both effective and long acting.

Studies on effectiveness took place over the period of 5 years, and were conducted on men 18 - 41 years of age with mild to moderate hair loss. Positive effects of the treatment normally began to show after three months, with over two thirds of men showing the benefits of reinvigorated hair growth.

Propecia/finasteride 1mg may be used in conjunction with the only other hair loss treatment proven to be effective, Regaine Topical, a cream which is massaged directly into the scalp twice daily.

Propecia/finasteride 1mg is a prescription only medicine, which Dr Fox can prescribe through an online consultation to rule out contraindications. With 168 generic finasteride 1mg tablets available at £92.00, that works out at a daily cost of less than 55p to keep your hair.

As stated by Dr Tony Steele, “We are pleased to be able to make Propecia/finasteride available at such good prices. It is often an effective solution for men looking to keep their hair as long as possible”.
