Proscar (Finasteride, Propecia)
Active Ingredient: Finasteride
Generic Names: Proscar, Propecia, Finast, Fincar
Proscar or more known brand Propecia is a hair growth medication for the management of significant hair loss. Propecia is a medical breakthrough-the first pill that effectively treats male pattern hair loss on the vertex (at top of head) and anterior mid-scalp area.
By all measures, the clinical results of Propecia in men are impressive:
- 83% maintained their hair based on hair count (vs. 28% with placebo).
- 66% had visible regrowth as rated by independent dermatologists (vs. 7% with placebo).
Importantly Propecia helps grow natural hair-not just peach fuzz and is as convenient to take as a vitamin: one pill / 1mg a day
