What is Propecia?
Propecia is a hair loss medicine which has been available since 1997 to initially treat problems relating to enlarged prostate and it was discovered in men taking the drug for this reason that it actually halted and regrew some head hair which was when it became available cosmetically as a treatment for hair loss and male pattern baldness.
Propecia can be prescribed by your GP or via Boots online Who would have thought for one minute that such a big Uk Pharmaceutical Company like Boots Pharmacy would be selling a drug that could leave many men disabled physically, emotionally and psychologically. But one thing I have quickly learned about the world of medicine, is that it all comes down to making money. Propecia is sold all over the world by the makers 'Merck' who keep rapidly changing the side effects leaflet on a regular basis to now include such side effects as 'Male Breast Cancer'
It is also thought that Propecia has the ability to alter or destroy many Neurons located within the brain, thus alter long term functions which can be likened to the onset of Parkinson's or Alzheimers disease.
Anybody who informs you that Propecia is safe to use for hair loss are purely looking to make a financial gain, whether this be the makers 'Merck' or Boots Online Hair Loss Programme, charging £45.00 for one months supply of Propecia or any hair restoration clinic. There is only one reason this drug is on the market... MONEY MAKING. Whilst I have no doubts this drug can halt hair loss or even regrow some lost hair, the long term, permanent side effects far out way any positives seen from this drug and it still amazes me to see this drug considered safe by the US FDA and sold in store and online at Boots The Chemist in the Uk. It will only be a matter of time before this drug is withdrawn completely or certainly from the Uk market at the very least. I am confident Boots will be the first to action this withdrawal.
