Customer Question
My doctor prescribed propecia 1mg...
My doctor prescribed propecia 1mg twice a week. He said its a low dose so I won't have the side effects, I'm very scared of the side effects. I have not experienced hair loss but I'm on testosterone so it's a precaution. Would 2mg per week cause the dreaded side effects of propecia?

You will have much less side effects since it is usually dosed once daily. Hopefully this fully answers your question. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
