Propecia is a hair-loss-prevention drug for men that has been proven to be effective at preventing and improving the appearance of male-pattern baldness. If you are trying to decide if Propecia is your best approach to hair-loss prevention, knowing which factors affect your candidacy can help make the decision easier.

Propecia typically works best if the area being treated for hair loss is still occupied by a large amount of fine and thin hairs. If you have extensive hair loss, Propecia may not be able to provide you with the results you desire. Younger candidates respond better to the treatment, but it is still effective in older individuals.
