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.

Commission a report, then ignore it

With only 94 general practice posts, Prince Edward Island is small, but it's a microcosm of the health budget squeezes being felt around the world. Something needs to be done to arrest the spiralling expenditure ... but what? Time to call in global management consulting firm Hay Group to produce a $200,000 report.

Hay Group, not surprisingly, focussed their attention on one of the province's biggest expenses: doctors. How could the government reduce the amount it spends on doctors? To an accountant, the answer is simple and obvious - have fewer doctors.

That's precisely what the Hay Group is recommending as its report nears completion, and the area in which it finds the most room for cuts is family practice. In fact, Hay suggests cutting the number of GPs on P.E.I. from 94 to as few as 65.

Doing this would naturally require somebody else to shoulder the GPs' burden, and that's what the report recommends, suggesting new roles for nurses, nurse practitioners, and so on.

The province's College of Family Physicians argues it's already adopting these new models. But, says president Dr. Andrew Wohlgemut: "We're not for substituting or getting rid of family physicians and replacing them with other people."

On that issue, it seems, he has friends in high places. On the day the report's recommendations were made public, P.E.I.'s Health Ministry issued a press release trumpeting the hiring of seven new physicians, three of them GPs.

Provincial Health Minister Carolyn Bertram said she won't comment fully on the report until the final draft is submitted to the cabinet in about six weeks, but it seems she's already decided how to address its main recommendation: "We are not cutting doctors' positions," she told the CBC.

Some political realities can still trump even the budget squeeze.
