Introduction to Finasteride 1mg Tablets UK
Finasteride 1mg Tablets in the UK are a medication primarily prescribed to treat male pattern baldness and diffuse thinning. This temporary condition causes hair to thin evenly across the scalp. It is the generic version of Propecia and offers the same effectiveness. In addition to Finasteride, UsMen provides a combined Minoxidil 5% and Finasteride 0.1% spray/solution as a hair loss treatment. The brand also plans to introduce Minoxidil tablets, Loniten tablets, Minoxidil 5% solution and spray, and Biotin capsules.
How Finasteride 1mg Tablets UK Work
Finasteride 1mg tablets belong to a class of medications called 5α-reductase inhibitors. These medications prevent enzymes from converting testosterone into DHT, a hormone that causes hair follicles to shrink and hair to fall out.
Visible Improvements after taking Finasteride 1mg Tablets:
Users can typically notice visible improvements within three to six months of using Finasteride 1mg tablets. However, it may take up to a year before significant changes are noticeable. To experience the full effects of the treatment, UsMen's Prescribers recommend taking one 1mg Finasteride tablet daily for at least six months.
- Missed Dose: If a dose is missed, taking two tablets will not improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
- Discontinuation: If you stop taking the 1mg Finasteride tablets, you will likely experience further hair loss within nine to twelve months. Some men may also experience post-finasteride syndrome, which involves sexual side effects, fatigue, memory and mood changes, loss of libido, ejaculation disorders, and penile curvature or size change.
- Side Effects: While rare, there are some side effects associated with Finasteride 1mg tablets, such as low sex drive (libido), difficulty getting or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction), ejaculation differences, mood alterations, and depression. If you experience any symptoms or adverse effects while taking Finasteride 1mg tablets, it's best to consult a healthcare professional immediately.
- Women and Children: Finasteride 1mg tablets should not be used or handled by women and children, especially breastfeeding and pregnant women. Ingestion or absorption through damaged or crushed tablets can harm the child in the womb or via breastfeeding.
- Pre-existing Conditions: If you have any pre-existing conditions such as cardiovascular, metabolic, or liver disease, always inform the prescriber, even if Finasteride is deemed safe for you to take.
Finasteride 1mg Tablets offer an effective solution for male pattern baldness and diffuse thinning. By inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into DHT, these tablets help prevent further hair loss. It is crucial to follow the prescribed dosage and consult a healthcare professional if any symptoms or adverse effects occur. Women, children, and individuals with certain pre-existing conditions should exercise caution when considering Finasteride treatment.
We are only able to sell Finasteride 1mg tablets to customers in the UK. If you are wanting to buy Finasteride tablets outside the UK please visit the local Pharmacies for guidance.
What are Propecia Tablets
Propecia was the first prescription treatment approved for male pattern baldness. It is widely regarded as the most effective hair loss treatment due to its performance in clinical trials. Available since 1997, it has undergone extensive testing. This has shown that Propecia has stopped further hair loss in over 90% of men with two-thirds of men in the studies experiencing natural hair regrowth.
Most men will begin to notice the results within three to six months of use, with hair loss being reduced and in certain cases, hair may begin to grow back. By month nine, they should be able to maintain the hair they have, and sometimes partially regrow the hair they've lost. Male pattern baldness, particularly at a younger age can have devastating effects on self-esteem.
How Propecia Tablets help
The immediate benefit of taking prescription Propecia tablets (finasteride) is to aid in the slowing down of hair loss, and hopefully, restore partial if not full regrowth of hair from in the affected areas.
- Slow your male pattern baldness within just 3 months of beginning treatment
- Enjoy the possibility of hair regrowth within a year
- Single daily tablet, no inconvenient creams or lotions
Initial benefits (cessation of hair loss) are usually seen within 3-6 months of use, although it may need to be used for up to a year until notable improvements are experienced. Clinical studies have also shown that men who used an anti-inflammatory shampoo in conjunction with Propecia experienced the best results.
In addition to this, diets including high levels of protein and iron from foods such as vegetables, fish, eggs, and beans have been known to also promote hair growth and quality of hair.

Like all medicines, finasteride can cause side effects in some people, although not everyone gets them.
Common side effects of Finasteride
These common side effects happen in more than 1 in 100 people.
They usually improve after a while. However, talk to your doctor or pharmacist if these side effects bother you or do not go away:
- problems getting an erection and less interest in having sex
- problems with ejaculating, such as little or no semen
Serious Finasteride side effects
Serious Finasteride 1mg side effects are rare and happen in less than 1 in 1,000 people. Some people may notice these side effects after taking finasteride for a few months.
Speak to your doctor if you get:
- any lumps, pain, or swelling in your chest area or discharge from your nipples – these may be signs of a serious condition such as breast cancer
- unusually low mood (depression) or thoughts of harming yourself
Serious allergic reaction
In rare cases, finasteride may cause a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis).
Immediate action is required: Call 999 or go to A & E if:
- You get a skin rash, including redness and itching, blistering, or peeling
- Tightness in the chest or throat
- You have trouble breathing or talking
- Your mouth, face, lips, or tongue starts swelling. You could be having a serious allergic reaction and may need treatment at a hospital. These are not all the side effects of finasteride. For a full list see the leaflet inside your medicines packet.
You can report any suspected side effects to the UK safety scheme.
How to cope with side effects
What to do about:
- problems getting an erection and less interest in sex – these side effects should improve with time. If they do not get better, speak to your doctor.
- problems with ejaculating – if the amount you ejaculate is less than usual or you have no semen at all, you do not need to worry as this side effect is harmless. Talk to a doctor if it does not get any better.
Advice for women
Even though finasteride is not generally prescribed for women, it could still harm an unborn baby.
Use a condom when having sex if your partner is taking finasteride. This is because small amounts of finasteride pass into semen.
Do not touch any crushed or broken finasteride tablets if there’s any chance you could be pregnant. Finasteride can get into your bloodstream through your skin if you handle broken tablets. This is why the tablets come with a protective coating.
Cautions with other medicines
Finasteride is not affected by other medicines.
Mixing finasteride with herbal remedies and supplements
St John’s wort (a supplement sometimes taken to help with depression) might stop finasteride from working as well as it’s supposed to.
However, there’s very little information about taking other herbal medicines and supplements with finasteride.
