Hair Loss Treatment

Effective prescription treatment for hair loss

Use our online consultation to obtain a prescription and medication for hair loss treatment. Our doctor will check whether you can use a hair loss medication and approve an appropriate treatment.

We offer the prescription treatment Propecia, which is not available on the NHS.

We also offer the non-prescription treatments Regaine and Alpecin shampoo.

If you are unsure which treatment to order, you may wish to book a telephone consultation with one of our doctors.

Use our online assessment to order treatment. A Superdrug Online Doctor will review your order and approve appropriate treatment.

How our service works

  • Complete a short questionnaire about your health. 
  • Order and pay for your hair loss treatment. 
  • A Superdrug Online Doctor will review your order and approve appropriate treatment.
  • Orders received before 4pm will be sent out the same day. Orders received after 4pm will be sent out the next working day.
  • Your treatment will be posted to you via your choice of first class or next day delivery.
  • Someone will need to sign for the delivery, otherwise it will be held at your local post office.
  • The treatment arrives in plain, discreet packaging.
  • Order & Collect (our same day in-store pick up service) is also available in selected Superdrug stores.

Please note when ordering a generic medication: We may use a range of manufacturers in order to provide you with your medication in a timely manner. 

Side effects are uncommon but can include:

  • Itch or rash
  • Problems with ejaculation
  • Testicular pain
  • Breast tenderness
  • Depressed mood – please note if you develop mental health problems whilst taking this medication consult your doctor immediately

In a few (less than 2%) men there has been a sexual side effect such as less desire for sex, difficulties in achieving an erection or a decrease in the amount of semen. These side effects went away in men who stopped taking Propecia.

Taking Finasteride causes a slight increase in your risk of breast cancer.

There are a number of alternative treatments for hair loss including over-the-counter products containing minoxidil (Regaine for men is a well-known example). You can also try a hair loss shampoo such as Alpecin.

Most cosmetic and homeopathic treatments do not have good clinical evidence of success.

Surgical options to treat hair loss can be effective - ask your GP or a hair loss specialist for more information.

If you would like to get personalised advice on how to cope with hair loss, you can also book a telephone consultation with one of our doctors.

    Placed an order with Superdrug, to do this a questionnaire had to be completed (health check and medical history) which was reassuring. Very impressed that their doctor then contacted me to query a point which shows Superdrug as a responsible pharmacy. Will continue to use the service as it is excellent.

    Superdrug did not make it clear or explain the potentially permanent side effect that this medication can cause - infertility. I now have 6 months worth of tablets that I will not use. Superdrug refused to acknowledge my complaint - only stating medicines cannot be returned. Please think twice before buying these tablets and do research outside of Superdrug as the information is not complete.

    Quick and easy to use and you can opt out of notifying your doctor which other sites don't let you do. Arrived quickly and discreetly.

    I can't assess this fully as I have only recently started using it, making assessing the efficacy of the product difficult
