What is Propecia?

This is a medicine for men who have male pattern hair loss, which you might also know as a receding hairline, or pattern baldness. This medication can prevent further hair loss and may even increase hair growth. It is available as a tablet, and contains a substance called finasteride as the main ingredient.
