Of course, when it comes to the male problem of balding, there are numerous numbers of products on the market today. All of them promise swift and a hundred percent sure improvement. This only makes it harder for us to discern which of them is (or are) truly of high quality, low risk and full effectiveness.
However, in this burst of new solutions, offers and many attractive promises, Propecia and Rogaine have become the most popular ones. Now, which of them you should chose is another dilemma. So let us see which of the two will bring you more benefits than the other.
First of all, which is the most important as well, is that both these medicines have been clinically tested and approved for use by FDA (Food and Drug Association). This enables us to use it safely and without any unpleasant surprises.
As for the shape they come in, Propecia comes in the form of a pill and is used orally, once a day. Rogaine, on the other hand, is a solution and it is applied externally. You need to use Rogaine twice a day, and this gives a great advantage to Propecia, since the way it is used is much easier, practical and not time-consuming.
When it comes to the time period that these should be taken in, they both require longer time of usage. However, it is known that for it takes 6-8 months for Propecia to make visible results; but for Rogaine this time is indefinite.
Some clinical studies and trials have also shown that Propecia is more beneficial than Rogaine. Actually, Rogaine only helps in saving the already existing hair from falling off, while Propecia promotes the growth of new hair and prevents it from receding.
As for the side-effects, of course, both medicines have some. Propecia may cause low sex desire; but Rogaine may cause dandruff, itching and irritation of skin. Also, women who use Rogaine may eventually grow facial hair, which is something you will probably want to avoid.
All in all, both drugs have their good and bad sides. However, Rogaine has proven to be less practical for use, to be able to cause some really annoying side-effects and to be slightly slower and less effective than Propecia. With Propecia you will only have to worry about your hair loss problem once a day. Not only will your hair stop receding, but you will also gain new hair and over the time reach the thickness you used to have. So if you are still in two minds over this issue, rest assured that Propecia is the best solution for your problem. Of course, you will have to consult with your doctor first, and he will then give you all the necessary information that you need in order to enable for Propecia to reach its full effectiveness within a short period of time. Do not hesitate and pay a visit to our doctor as soon as possible.
