What is F-Pecia?
F-Pecia containing the active ingredient finasteride is used to slow hair loss and promote hair regrowth in adult men. The medication can treat male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) at the crown or the middle of the scalp by preventing the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). When used in certain doses the tablets can be used to treat other symptoms such as hormone replacement therapy and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).
How is F-Pecia used?
F-Pecia should be taken once per day unless otherwise directed by a doctor. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be taken along with plenty of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy. It may take up to 3 months before the full effects of the medication are felt. Do not discontinue the medication without consulting a doctor as stopping the medication can cause the loss of all newly regrown hair within 12 months.
F-Pecia may cause unwanted side effects such as:
- Decreased sex drive or performance
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased volume of ejaculation
- Testicular pain
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Breast enlargement, tenderness, swelling or discharge
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
