Propecia or finasteride is a medication given to men who suffer from hair loss. Following a 5-year clinical trial carried out by the FDA, from which it was able to get good results, Propecia has had good reviews from users and has become the only drug for the treatment of male pattern baldness to be approved by the FDA.
Male pattern baldness is something that men do not want to happen. Some even lose their confidence once they start losing hair. While getting hair implants is a good idea, most would like their hair to grow back. The latter is of course impossible without drug intervention that is why finasteride is considered by many men as a lifesaver. While those who have used the medication are raving about finasteride, there are men who are afraid to use it because they have read somewhere or heard from some of their friends that using hair growing products will only result to more hair loss.
This is of course untrue to the point that hair experts call this statement a myth. Hair growth products will not contribute to more hair loss so you can use as much of that hair regrowth shampoo as much as you want. Some even say that hair-care products can cause baldness. It is a given that many products are made from chemicals but these chemicals are not strong enough for you to start losing hair. There might be some isolated cases where there is hair fall due to a certain brand of shampoo but this might be because such products are not really ones that are sold in your grocery but something that a friend concocted and he or she put too much of something or it could also be that you are just allergic to it. Allergic reactions do not include hair loss though so this just means that the connection is unfounded.
If you are suffering from hair loss and do not know what to do about it, finding out what is causing it is a good idea. To do this, you should visit your general practitioner asap and tell him or her about the problem. You do not have to take Propecia immediately because there might be other reasons why you are losing your hair aside from male pattern baldness thatPropecia can treat.
