What Are Propecia 1mg Tablets?

Propecia 1mg Tablet is a medication used to treat hair loss in men. It is the only FDA-approved oral medication for male pattern baldness. Propecia is taken once daily and should be taken at the same time each day.

How Does Propecia 1mg Work?

Propecia 1mg Tablet is a prescription medication used to treat male pattern baldness. It works by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is a hormone that is involved in the development of male pattern baldness. Propecia 1mg Tablet is an antiandrogen that decreases the amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp and prevents the action of androgen hormones on follicular cells. This helps to stop the progression of hair loss, and promote new hair growth.
