Finasteride is a testosterone 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. Although Finasteride is often prescribed to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate, it is also prescribed to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) in adult men. Progressive thinning of the hair on the head eventually leads to baldness. The hair loss usually begins at the temples, with the hairline gradually receding. Doctors at Medzino can issue a prescription to treat hair loss in men if you are suitable.

Finasteride, also known by the brand name Propecia, belongs to a class of drugs known as testosterone 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. Finasteride is a prescription treatment used to treat hair loss in men (male pattern baldness). Finasteride is also used to treat enlarged prostate. Finasteride is not intended for use in women and children, although in hair circumstances, it may be recommended by a doctor.
Finasteride is a type of medication known as a 5-alpha-redictase inhibitor. 5-alpha-redictase is the enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (a hormone that stimulates the development of male characteristics, an androgen). Too much dihydrotestosterone has shown to be implicated in benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer and male-pattern baldness. As such, the 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor that Finasteride contains blocks the action of this enzyme by preventing testosterone from breaking down into dihydrotestosterone, which increases the levels of testosterone and improves hair growth.
Finasteride tablets contain the active ingredient finasteride at a concentration of 1mg. Finasteride is a 5-alpha-redictase inibitor which increases the levels of testosterone, promoting hair growth.
Finasteride also contains the following inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, sodium starch glycolate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose LF, titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, talc, docusate sodium, yellow ferric oxide, and red ferric oxide.
The recommended dosage of Finasteride is a single 1mg tablet, taken once a day, at approximately the same time. In some situations, a doctor may prescribe a different dose. You should always follow the instructions of the prescribing physician when taking any medication.
Finasteride is a tablet for long-term use and should be taken continuously for at least three to six months. Take Finasteride tablet orally (by mouth) with a glass of water, with or without food. The recommended dosage is one tablet (1mg) taken once daily, or otherwise as prescribed by your doctor. For optimal effect, take this medication regularly and preferably at the same time each day. It may take up to 3 months for the effects to show. If you stop taking Finasteride, your hair loss symptoms may come back, possibly within 12 months.
Important: Before taking Finasteride, inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have had liver disease, prostate cancer, infections, urinary problems.
Get immediate medical help if you experience signs of an allergic reaction to Finasteride: skin rash (which may be itchy), swelling of your face, lips, tongue, throat; difficulty breathing.
Possible side effects:
Talk to your doctor immediately if any of the following serious side effects occur:
Finasteride is contraindicated in pregnant or potentially pregnant women as Finasteride may cause abnormalities of the external genitalia of a male fetus. As such, pregnant or potentially pregnant women should not even handle crushed or broken Finasteride tablets because there is a possibility of absorption of finasteride.
