Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. These changes typically begin gradually in men in their 20s. Rtsuttt at clinical studies: For 12 months, doctors studied over 1800 men aged 18 to 41 with mild to moderate amounts of ongoing hair loss. All men, whether receiving PROPECIA or placebo la ptll containing no medication) were given a medicated shampoo INeulrogena T/Gel*"" Shampoo) Of these men, approximately 1200 with hair loss at the top of the head were studied for an additional 12 months. In general, men who took PROPECIA maintained or increased the number of visible scalp hairs and noticed improvement in their hair in the first year, with the effect maintained in the second year. Hair counts in men who did not take PROPECIA continued to decrease. In one study, patients were questioned on the growth 0'body hair. PROPECIA did not appearto affect hair in places other than the scalp. Wil! PROPECU WMfc tar n»7 For most men. PROPECIA increases the number of scalp hairs, helping to fill in thin or balding areas of the scalp. Men taking PROPECIA noted a slowing of hair lass during two years of use Although results will vary, generally you will not be able to grow back all of the hair you have tost There is not sufficient evidence that PROPECIA works in the treatment of receding hairline in the temporal area on both sides of the head. Male pattern hair loss occurs gradually over time. On average, healthy hair grows only about half an inch each month Therefore, it will take time to see any effect. You may need to take PROPECIA daily lor three months or more before you see a benefit from taking PROPECIA PROPECIA can only work over the long term if you continue taking rt. If the drug has not worked for you in twelve months, further treatment is unlikely to be of benefit. If you stop taking PROPECIA you will likely lose the hair you have gained within '2 months of stopping treatment You should discuss this with your doctor.
