Painless process. (No pun intended). Impossible to get doctors appointment during pandemic. If it is a simple renewal/prescription, use online practitioners and leave the actual visits for the ailing and infirm.

Very quick and easy to do. Can ask the doctor any questions about the medication. Only drawback is the initial fee, which is a bit pricey.

How does hair loss treatment work?

The treatment we offer is an orally administered pill that functions by preventing the conversion of testosterone into a follicle-shrinking androgen called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Hair loss treatments can work to preserve hair and may even regrow hair.

Are prescription hair loss medications effective?

The treatment we offer is generally recognized as the most effective therapy for treating thinning hair — otherwise known as male pattern baldness. Increased hair on the scalp can be seen within three months of starting treatment and longer-term studies have demonstrated increased hair on the scalp at 24 and 48 months with continued use. In one study, this drug was effective at stopping hair loss in 83% of men compared to 28% for the placebo group. Effectiveness only persists as long as the drug is taken. It typically works better to prevent further hair loss than to regrow lost hair.

What about side effects?

As with any prescription medication, side effects may occur. For the vast majority of patients, this prescription treatment works without causing side effects. However, some men may experience a reaction. Read our important safety information to learn more about possible side effects. If you experience any side effects, talk to your doctor.

Can I be accurately assessed remotely?

When you complete an online visit for a hair loss treatment,  we will ask all the relevant questions the doctor needs to understand your alopecia and make the best decision. Also, if the doctor needs further information, they will follow up via our secure doctor/patient chat.

How much does hair loss medication cost?

Hair loss medication filled via Felix has a starting cost of $41.23 per 30 pills. The price does not include the pharmacy fill fee and it will vary based on the drug chosen, the province it is shipped to, and the refill schedule chosen.

Am I covered by my insurance?

Medication coverage varies greatly between different plans, provinces and has specific criteria that determine eligibility. We recommend that you upload your private and/or provincial benefit card during the online visit so that our pharmacy partner can apply any coverage you are eligible for before shipping your meds. 

Can I get hair loss treatment online?

Yes, with Felix you can get treatment for alopecia and other types of hair loss online. Complete a short online assessment, and review options including Finasteride (generic Propecia). Once approved by a doctor, your medication will ship to your door.

How to treat hair loss

To treat hair loss you can use several different topical and oral treatments, either alone or together. The best course of treatment for you will depend on the diagnosis of your hair loss condition. While androgenic alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness, is one of the most common types of hair loss, there can be other underlying issues contributing to hair loss. A doctor can conduct some tests to determine if there is an underlying health issue that needs to be addressed. If not, then the most common treatments for male pattern baldness are minoxidil, also known as Rogaine, and oral finasteride, also known as Propecia. Other medications, such as antiandrogens, may also be effective. There are also medical interventions, like hair follicle transplants and laser therapy, that can be effective. Your doctor can go over the different options with you, comparing things like price and other factors that may influence your decision. However, the good news is that there are a variety of treatment options available for hair loss. Many people have success with the most common treatments, minoxidil and finasteride.

Why is there no cure for hair loss?

There is no cure for hair loss because the mechanisms by which the best treatments for thinning hair work aren’t entirely understood. Hair loss is part of a complex interconnected system in the body, and we understand that hormones play a major role, especially the hormone DHT. It’s not as simple as tweaking a person’s hormones to achieve a full head of hair. Two of the best treatments for hair loss, minoxidil and finasteride, were both accidental innovations in the field of hair loss treatment. Minoxidil was initially developed to treat high blood pressure in the 70s, and finasteride was first developed to treat enlarged prostates in older men. In both cases, the effects on hair growth were positive and unexpected effects that lead to them being evaluated and approved as treatments for hair loss. While discovering the cure for hair loss would be exciting news for billions of people, for now, we have to work with the available treatments, which can still be very effective at keeping hair loss at bay. However, with both minoxidil and finasteride, the results only last as long as the treatment is being used. 

Where do you go for hair loss?

The best place to go for hair loss is, firstly, the doctor. That’s because they will be able to determine if you are experiencing androgenic alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness, or if you might have an underlying health condition that is contributing to hair loss and that needs to be addressed first. When you first go in, they may ask about your diet and lifestyle, hair styling routine, stress levels, and other factors that may impact your hair. They will also ask about your family history, including whether hair loss was experienced by your parents and grandparents. A blood test is also typically used to determine if some underlying medical disorders or diseases need to be treated. The doctor may pull out a few strands of hair to determine what stage of hair loss you’re at, and they may even conduct scalp biopsies to reveal if there is an infection that is contributing to the hair loss. These assessments will determine the best course of action, and if they find that you have male pattern baldness, they can also prescribe a widely used and effective treatment such as minoxidil or finasteride. 

What doctor can I see for hair loss?

The doctor to see for hair loss is, firstly, a family doctor. A primary care doctor will be able to diagnose most hair loss conditions and can carry out initial assessments, after which they may refer you to a dermatologist who can offer a range of treatments. Alternatively, if other treatments aren’t needed but you’re dealing with male-pattern baldness, they can prescribe or recommend appropriate treatments such as topical minoxidil or oral finasteride. You can also have an online visit through a platform like Felix, where you’ll go through an assessment that will be reviewed by a doctor before they prescribe you a treatment. Since understanding your underlying health conditions is important before a doctor can prescribe a treatment for hair loss, you’ll also have to get a blood test done in advance of getting a prescription. Once you have your prescription through Felix, it’s good for up to a year, and you can have your hair loss treatment mailed to your home at an interval that works for you. If you already have a prescription for finasteride, you can transfer this over to Felix and skip the trips to the pharmacy to refill your prescription.
