 It is not possible to buy Propecia hair loss tablets over the counter. In order to purchase Propecia in the UK you need to have a prescription.

This is so that a doctor can check that the medicine is suitable before issuing it to you. To do this, a doctor will need to assess your medical history, as well as any other medications you are taking.

On this page, we’ll discuss the different ways you can get Propecia, including:

  • from an NHS GP
  • from a private GP
  • from a high street pharmacy or chemist
  • from an online pharmacy

We’ll also look at the other treatment options for male hair loss available over the counter.

It is possible to get a prescription for Propecia by making an appointment with your NHS GP. They will be able to review your medical status and assess whether the drug is right for you. If it is, they can issue a prescription for it.

However, Propecia is not available on the NHS, so your doctor will have to conduct the consultation in a private capacity. This means that they may need to charge you a nominal fee for the consultation and issuing a prescription.

They will be able to assess your suitability for the drug in person, as an NHS GP would, and issue a prescription where appropriate. Again, because the consultation is conducted privately, there will be a charge for this service.

A local chemist, supermarket pharmacy or high street pharmacy will be able to fulfil your prescription once it has been drawn up by a doctor.

Some pharmacies also offer a consultation service with pharmacy prescribers or practitioners, who may be able to write up a prescription for Propecia. There may be a consultation charge for these services in some cases.

However, because Propecia is not available on the NHS, patients will not be able to get it at the NHS levy rate. This means that a pharmacy will have to charge the regular market price for the drug (which is typically higher than the NHS levy), which the patient will have to pay in full.

While Propecia requires a prescription, there are other treatments available which do not, including:

Regaine. This a topical treatment containing minoxidil. It is available as a lotion or foam which is rubbed into the scalp on a daily basis.

Regaine for Men is available in two strengths 2% and 5% (or ‘Extra Strength’). It has been found in clinical trials to be effective at slowing hair loss, and in some cases increasing hair regrowth.

Although Regaine for Men is available over the counter, a pharmacist will need to check your suitability before they can provide the 5% solution to you.

Regain for Women is also available over the counter for women experiencing hair loss.

Caffeine shampoo. The idea behind caffeine shampoo is that it stimulates hair growth. It was developed following a study which concluded that caffeine has a positive effect on hair growth [2] when applied in vitro. However, how effective it is as a hair loss treatment when applied to the scalp is not yet clear, and some experts think more research is needed.

Before embarking on any treatment for hair loss, it is advisable to speak to your doctor or your pharmacist for guidance.

This is also a pill taken once daily to block the male hormones in the skin that can cause hair loss. This is sometimes used for female pattern hair loss.

Hair transplantation involves the relocation of plugs of skin from parts of the scalp containing active hair follicles to bald areas. A person may need several hundred plugs -- implanted 10 to 60 per session. The transplanted hair may drop out, but new hair usually begins to grow from the transplanted follicles within several months.

 Newer hair transplantation procedures called follicular unit hair transplants can transplant one to four hair follicles very close together, for a more natural look. In addition to follicule unit transplantation (FUT), follicle unit extraction (FUE), which involves transplanting individual follicle units for less scarring, is also available.

Most cases of alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair to fall out in clumps, resolve spontaneously. Some doctors try to speed recovery with topical corticosteroid drops or steroid shots directly into the areas of hair loss on the scalp. The treatment may be somewhat painful and may cause skin thinning in the injected sites.

Prednisone, an oral steroid, may be an effective treatment for alopecia areata, but its potential side effects include weight gain, metabolic abnormalities, acne, and menstrual problems. Its positive effects are often only temporary.

This is a topical medication used to control inflammation at the base of the hair follicles. It is used in conditions such as alopecia areata.

This is a topical sensitizing agent used occasionally to stimulate hair regrowth in alopecia areata.

Office and home based laser comb devices are sometimes successful in stimulating new hair growth.
