The pill you are taking appears similar in name to the drug Propecia (finasteride) made by the US drug company Merck. If it is finasteride (controlled by US and foreign patents), the side effects are four:

  1. An initial increase sex drive in 10% of men taking the medication
  2. An initial decrease sex drive in 1-2% of men
  3. Breast swelling in less than 1% of men
  4. Some decrease long term impact for prostate cancer

If the drug is not finasteride, then I have no way to know what the side effects or the effectiveness of these drugs might be. For whatever reason many people in the United States promote the idea that drugs made in India are not quality controlled like drugs made in the United States. I think the correct statement for this should be that the United States FDA has not verified that the generic drugs made in India meet the strict standards required in the United States.

  1. hi plz help me,,ny hairs e falling and gone bald from front,is there is any remedy,doctors,hair transplant etc which can help me out

  2. I ordered some 1mg from a shady online Canadian pharmacy. I had already written it off as a waste of a hundred bucks, but surprisingly it did arrive. It was in an envelope the size of a CD case with 15 10x blister packs stuffed inside.

    I’m hoping it’s real. Package says

    Finasteride Tablets USP 1 mg
    APPECIA
    COMPOSITION:
    Each film coated tablet contains Finasteride USP 1mg, Colours Titanium Dixoide & Quinoline Yellow WS.

    ajanta pharma limited
    Factory B-4/5/6 MIDC Area, Paithan 431 128
    Regd. / Corp Off Ajanta house
    Charkop, Kahdiou W Mumbai 400 067

    The pills are light yellow with no marking

  3. I also ordered finasteride from the web from a company called xlpharmacy. The packages I received had the same Indian company printed on back that manufactured the drug. The name of the company called Ajanta Pharma. I did a search for the company and they appeared to be a real company that really does exist.

  4. I also received appecia from xlpharmacy. The talk on here kind of makes me nervous. Does anyone else have any information on it? I have been taking it for about a month now.

  5. So you people actually recieved your orders from XLPharmacy?

    I ordered not long ago, and then started finding disheartening comments on various sites.

    A little nervous.

  6. ive bought some other products from the ajanta pharmacy and they worked really well. plus delivery time was good.

  7. Being that some of you have good things to say about Ajanta Pharma….it troubles me that they no longer have Appecia listed as one of their products on their website. I’ve emailed them direct and am awaiting info as to whether or not they’ve discontinued it or whatever. This site has been the most informative on the matter thus far. I am very hesitant to take this product ONLY because its no longer on their site.

    If any of you have updates that would be great as well

  8. Have been using generic Finasteride for two years and seemed to reduce my hair loss to relatively normal rates. Ordered a years supply recently again and it arrived as APPECIA. Different in color and very bitter taste (not that I normally chew them). However my hair loss increased at an alarming rate. In just two months of use I have lost so much hair that friends are commenting on it. I stopped using it altogether and after about two to two and a half weeks my hair loss stopped. I have either a bad batch or something else. Told that the resulting hair loss is not reversable so I live with it. Haven’t testsed the APPECIA tablets to see what they actually contain but for me it was an alarming result. The hair loss could have been due to other causes as well so I would suggest starting slow and monitor the shower drain very closely!!

  9. Guys, buy finpecia, hairmax gel(minoxidil 5%) and zinoral (ketoconazole 2 %) its from the world renowned drug maker cipla.But make sure you buy only cipla.

    it comes cheap because indian government believes that one should not earn too much money on the misery of others. We are not like you americans, looting the world with expensive products,just because you have better research facility and you patent every possible thing before others do,including yoga and basmati rice.

    I heard one of you guys is selling land on moon and other plants also because its all his property ?? dude..wtf ?
    We guys enjoy freedom in true sense.

    Indian politicians may be corrupt but not as corrupt as your bankers who pushed the whole world back by 4-5 years.

    we are the oldest and the most vibrant civilization of the whole world.. come to India, and you’ll get such warm hearted welcome,surreal ambience and divine peace that you’ll never want to go back.

    proud indian !

  10. don’t use finasteride, its side effects are not affordable for a successful married life.Its good to lose hair than to lose your libido, sexual power.though side effects are rare,but why take risk.

  11. Hi Guys,
    Let me give tell you how Finasteride works, and baldness happens. testosterone hormone that a male produce because of a certain enzyme testosterone becomes 5Deydroxytestosterone, this is the culprit, it destroys the roots of the hair on the scalp. the result, hair fall and no hair regrowth.Finasteride blocks or destroys the Enzyme and prevents Testosterone becoming 5DHT. since testosterone remains as such in the body for long, you may have increased sexual urge.
    You should also take green tea, similar action, Minoxidyl , apply on the scalp. take good amount of protein. It has a good result.
    Ajantha Pharma is a known company in India… and has a good market presence.By the way I am an Indian, and I am a Pharmacist as well.

  12. HiNaveen

    My docotor who prescribed Finpecia (Finateride 1mg by Cipla) for 90 days. He indicated about men suffering from erectile dysfunction but only in 1 % case. But now after surfing the website including this one, I understand that the risk rate is much beyond that.I understand you are a pharmacist and from your experience , would you recommend one using Finpecia ??

  13. I have taken for a long time — years. I don’t worry about sex life or erections because I don’t care. I would rather have hair on my head. You make the choice. Now on 5 mg from India. Just switched from 1 mg because was getting thin. Don’t worry about the penis, worry about the hair on the head.

  14. Hello,
    I am using Finalo + mintop 2% for about a month. Seems hair fall is reduced & hair condition also improved.but is it possible to retain hairs to normal.

  15. I have been using Finpecia 1 mg for 2 years and I have not noticed any side effect. Keep one thing in mind that every medicine has side effects. Even Crocin which we take for head ache, body pain, cold and fever also have side effect. Even water that we drink also have side effect, if we drink water in excess it will put a lot of stress on our kidneys. So with the fear of damaging our kidneys, can we stop drinking water?
    I myself have used Finpecia for more than two years and I know a lot of people who have taken Finpecia and no one have complained of any side effect. Keep one thing in mind that this medicine will not regrow hair on your head. It will only slow down the process of hair fall. People who are experiencing hair fall should keep in their mind that two things are very vital to keep hair healthy on our head. 1) No excessive masturbation. Just for pleasure we throw our hormones, proteins and precious neuro transmitters. After masturbation our body triggers the conversion of testosterone to DHT in our balls. After many jerks huge amount of DHT builds up and it attacks the hair follicles. 2) Bad sleeping habit. Lack of sleep and alteration in sleeping habit has been shown to affect the body immune function, hormone imbalance and physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive and hair loss is the consequence of an internal disturbance. Stop jerking and get proper sleep and you will see drastic decline in your hair fall and after a period hair fall will completely stop.

  16. Mates…really get ur tests done for sure and thoroughly affirm if u are really suitable for this DHT destroying drug..because if u wind up with the sides, ur life will be the most miserable on the planet….Even cancer or Aids patients would be much better off than u. It is known as post finasteride syndrome(PFS). I pray that none of u will end up with this.
    My experience with finpecia is that it has done a great deal of harm to me and my personality with just one pill 1mg..thats all..Well Im glad i had to stop it right after one pill. Its been 4 months from that cursed day still some lingering side effects but efinetly most have improved. Mostly its brainfog, low libido and minor muscle atropy and emotional confusion or blunting. Body hairfall is also another disgusting side. Im happy that most have wore off but still this low libido and mental sides seem be still there. Hey…I believe that Time is the Healer in most cases. I guess I need to give few more months before all comes back to normal.
    Cheers

  17. I purchased some Appecia brand finasteride as well.

    I didn’t see Appecia listed as a brand on the ajanta website, so I’ve emailed the company for more information. I will post back here if I hear more.

    I’ve also found a few other accounts of people with Appecia, but I have seen nothing yet to say whether it’s legit.
