Additional medical information
The exact treatment we prescribe depends on your diagnosis and risk factors. Generally, we prescribe oral finasteride.Since this isn't an in-person visit we aren't able to provide hair transplants or other surgical procedures. But we're happy to answer your questions and refer you to an in-person provider.
All prescription medicines have benefits as well as potential risks for patients. Finasteride is safe for most patients, but it can also cause serious side effects, including but not limited to sexual dysfunction (e.g a decrease in one’s sex drive, trouble getting or keeping an erection, or a decrease in the amount of semen), depression, allergic reactions, and rarely, breast cancer. If we prescribe you finasteride, it's particularly important that you read all the information we provide before you start taking the medicine, as this helps you make an informed decision about whether you should or want to accept our treatment plan. We will review these risks with you after the doctor evaluates your visit. Please message us anytime if you have any questions or concerns.Get Started
