About Propecia
Finasteride is also sold under the brand name Proscar®. Proscar is given to men to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is also known as enlarged prostate.

If you are taking Propecia, take it exactly as your doctor tells you to take it. You may take Propecia with or without food. Take Propecia at the same time every day. If you forget to take Propecia, do not take an extra tablet. Just take the next tablet according to your regular schedule. Taking extra doses of Propecia will not make hair grow faster or better.

It can take months before you notice the full effects of Propecia. Men who take Propecia see some hair regrowth or hair that has stopped falling out within three months or more.

Propecia is not a cure for hair loss. If you stop taking Propecia, the hair that has regrown will likely be lost again.
