Propecia Generic For Male Pattern Baldness

The drug propecia generic was originally intended for treating prostate enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia. When its branded name Proscar was released in the market, it was noticed that men who were suffering from androgenic alopecia were also being treated by the drug.  It was then that the manufacturer took notice and created some clinical studies and found out that Proscar, which came at 5mg, which at lowered dosage, particularly 1mg, could help fight androgenic alopecia.  Several years later, the brand Propecia, an offshoot of the drug Proscar was approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for androgenic alopecia.

Who is propecia generic intended for?

Propecia generic is meant for men suffering from male pattern baldness and want to stop the progression of their hair loss.  Signs of male pattern baldness would be the thinning of hair on the front, the receding of hairline on the temples, and the formation of a bald spot on the crown.  In due time, this type of baldness will let you end up bald from top to front with a rim of hair at the sides and back.  propecia generic is effective against this type of hair loss because it is able to treat it at the root of the cause – the formation of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).  Basically, this hair loss treatment prevents your hair loss from getting any worse.  If your hair loss is due to androgenic alopecia, then this is the medication for you.  Consult your doctor to know what type of hair loss you are having.

Think twice about politics, doc

Last August, at the Canadian Medical Association's annual meeting, in Montreal, doctors eagerly asked guest speakers Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay, former New Brunswick Premier Bernard Lord and NDP MP Thomas Mulcair about how to kick off a run for public office.

This year's CMA meeting is coming up in just a couple of weeks, and the political overtones of the organization's policy recommendations will surely once again provide a nice backdrop for ambitious MDs with political aspirations.

But by coincidence, just as the conference draws near, Maclean's magazine yesterday drew our attention to the dark side of the lives of those high-powered government movers and shakers: endless campaigning.

Behold: Dr Hedy Fry, a family physician turned Liberal MP who got her start in politics as a representative in the BC Medical Association and the CMA, courting votes at the Vancouver Pride Parade last weekend. Just check out what she's wearing!


The political life, regrettably, isn't all pomp and circumstance and incredibly consequential decision-making. That's the unfortunate truth. What the political bigwigs at the CMA conference should be telling doctors is: much of what amounts to politics these days is no more glamorous than some of the uncomfortable things you have to do as a family doctor -- like, say, asking your 16-year-old patient whether he's sexually active, or examining a 70-year-old's infected toenail. Like Dr Fry in her space-age get-up, you just have to smile and pretend you're not mortified to be doing what you're doing.

    Hedy Fry and James Moore ...... two heads on one body (Canadian Heritage)........ that is constantly having it's arms chopped off ( maybe her multi appendages costume is a subliminal retort?)

    However, whomever ( physicians or others) seeks public office merely need to know the standard by which "voters" measure them.

    And what would that standard be, Sharon?

    'If you don't "stand up" for something.. you'll "fall" for anything'

    Ah, Hedy ...... remember the days of glory.... and weep.

    I agree with you that entering into politics was not the best idea.
