Please note: THIS IS A PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE (see Prescription Medicine Tab above for ordering and fulfillment process).
PROPECIA® (finasteride) is a medicine developed especially for men. The drug is designed to treat men suffering from androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern hair loss. This anti-hair loss medication increases growth of hair to prevent balding. In addition, it avoids further hair thinning (or decrease in volume or thickness of hair) and hair loss on the scalp.
Male pattern hair loss manifests as thinning of hair on scalp over a prolonged period of time. In effect, balding occurs or the hair line recedes on the top of the head. Hair thinning usually happens among men ages 20 and above. Male pattern hair loss continues to affect men in their advanced years. Permanent hair loss may result from prolonged experience of androgenetic alopecia.
Factors that cause male pattern hair loss include the family’s history of having this condition and the action of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone. Increased levels of DHT contribute significantly to increased loss of hair.
The action of PROPECIA®
- PROPECIA® reduces dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone levels in the scalp, to prevent balding in males.
- PROPECIA® only affects hair on scalp, not the hair growing on different parts of the body.
- PROPECIA® is suitable for males experiencing hair loss that’s mild to moderate, not complete.
- PROPECIA® is not as effective for women as it is for men.
- PROPECIA® doesn’t require additional hair care changes like replacing your shampoo or modifying your haircut.
- PROPECIA® contains a non-addictive drug dosage.

Trimethoprim for Cystitis/Urinary tract infections
Symptoms of cystitis
Cystitis is an infection of the bladder and passage that carries the urine from the body. Cystitis will usually cause two or more of these symptoms:
- Pain or burning when passing urine
- Needing to urinate often
- Needing to urinate urgently (without much warning)
- Discomfort just above the pubic area
If you have any of the following symptoms, see your doctor:
- Fever or a hot/cold feeling
- Vomiting or feeling like you are going to vomit
- Pain on the sides of the lower back (over the kidney area)
- Feeling particularly unwell
These are symptoms of a kidney infection and need treatment from a doctor.
If you have vaginal symptoms such as itch or discharge, talk to your pharmacist or doctor, as you may not have cystitis. Vaginal itching / irritation or vaginal discharge may be a sign of a fungal infection or a sexually transmitted infection. If you think you are at risk of a sexually transmitted infection e.g. chlamydia or genital herpes, see your doctor to get the right treatment promptly.
If you have cystitis and any of the following apply, you need to see a doctor:
- You are a male
- You are under 16 years old or over 65 years old
- You are pregnant or might be pregnant
- You have had more than three cases of cystitis in the last year (12 months)
- You have had cystitis in the last 2 weeks (apart from this instance)
- You have kidney problems, including kidney stones
- Your urinary tract (passageway for urine) is not normal or you have a catheter
- You have a spinal cord injury
- You have diabetes
- Your immune system doesn’t work properly
TREATMENT OF CYSTITIS
Cystitis can often come right on its own, but antibiotics will help this happen faster. If you have mild symptoms you may be able to drink plenty of water and avoid the need for antibiotics. Discuss the best option for you with your pharmacist or doctor.
Your pharmacist or doctor can also recommend sachets that you mix into water and drink to make your urine less acidic, which means less pain when you urinate (pass urine).
Anyone with symptoms of cystitis should drink plenty of water.
Our trained pharmacists are available in store only for consultation for the UTI.
