Each order that is sent out is assigned a Track and Trace - a code with which you can track the whereabouts of your order. And as soon as you become a customer, you will also be assigned your own personal doctor.

This is how we keep online medical care safe, effective, and straightforward.
Finasteride, known by the brand name Propecia, is a drug used to treat hair loss in men. It is available in 1 mg tablets and is taken by mouth.
Male hair loss is caused by dihydrotestosterone (DHT). A hormone that is present in the scalp and damages the hair follicles. DHT disrupts the hair growth cycle, causing hair to shorten, fall out more quickly and grow back more difficultly. Finasteride works by reducing DHT production by 70%, stopping hair loss in 80% of men.
The efficacy of finasteride for treating hair loss ranges from 70% to 99%. That means it stops hair loss in 70% to 99% of men.
Yes. This has been confirmed by studies of 5 and 10 years - in which finasteride stopped hair loss in 70%, 84% and 99% men. The effectiveness of finasteride is high, and side effects are rare. And unlike other medications, finasteride's efficacy remains the same over the years.
The optimal dose is 1 mg. Research shows that a 5 mg dose reduces DHT by 67.6%, while a 1 mg dose reduces DHT by 68.5%. Thus, taking a higher amount of finasteride provides no additional benefit.
Finasteride has a half-life of 4-7 hours, the time it takes for your body to cut the concentration by half. In general, we consider a drug to be eliminated after 5 half-lives. This means that it can take up to 35 hours to eliminate a 1 mg dose.
Finasteride. Finasteride stops hair loss. Minoxidil does not. On the internet, many people claim that minoxidil can prevent hair loss, but this belief is false. Scientific research has clearly shown that hair loss continues when treated with minoxidil. To stop hair loss, you need finasteride. There's no way around it.
Yes, finasteride requires a doctor's prescription. It is not a problem if you do not have a prescription yet. Our physicians will write one for you if necessary.
Finasteride is available online via our website. A doctor's prescription is unnecessary. We write one for you. All you need to do is fill in the online consultation (questionnaire). It consists of 8 questions and takes less than two minutes to complete.
If you live in the UK, you pay for your order using your credit card. At the moment, we accept Mastercard and VISA. We're adding other payment methods shortly. All payments are processed by Stripe.
The finasteride price is from £16.66 for 28 tablets of 1 mg.
