Basic Information On Propecia
Propecia is an anti-androgen drug. It is a synthetic 4-azateroid agent. It is used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia that is male-pattern hair loss. It is also used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) that is an enlarged prostate. Use of the drug in prevention and treatment of prostate cancer remains controversial. It is believed by some urologists that the drug can prevent cancer of the prostate. However, according to the others, the drug only shrinks certain tumors which may further delay the diagnosis of cancer. Brand or generic Propecia inhibits type-II 5-alpha reductase. Thus, it stops the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dyhydrotestosterone). Therefore, the androgenic activity of the scalp reduces. Secondly, inhibition of 5-alpha reductase in the prostate reduces the volume of the prostate. Thus, it reduces the risk of cancer and prevents BPH.
Precautions / Side Effects of Propecia
Common side effects of Propecia are abnormal ejaculation, decreased ejaculatory-volume (amount of semen), ejaculation disorder, erectile dysfunction (difficulty in achieving erection), abnormal sexual functions, gynecomastia, testicular pain, decrease in the desire for sex, and impotence. If any of the above mentioned side effects worsen then contact your health care provider. Finasteride is used for treatment in men only and not meant for women or children. If you are hypersensitive to any of the drug components then avoid the administration of the drug.
Pregnant women should not administer the Propecia drug as the male fetus may be at a risk and may get affected. Nursing women should also avoid the drug as the safety of the drug in breast-feeding women (with respect to the fetus) is not known. Finasteride is extensively metabolized in the liver. Therefore, if you have a history of liver dysfunctions then administer the drug with caution. The drug is not meant for the administration of pediatric or geriatric patients.
In the treatment of male-pattern hair loss the recommended dose of Propecia is 1 mg per day. The drug is administered orally and taken only once a day. It can be administered with food or without food. The effect of the drug is observed only after using the drug for a period of 3 months or more. In the treatment of BPH the recommended dose of brand or generic Propecia is 5 mg per day. The drug is administered orally once a day only. The effect of the drug is observed only after administering the drug for a period of 6 months or more.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
