IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

What is Finasteride? (generic Propecia)

Finasteride is a part of a drugfamily called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors.These drugs act like abarrierwhich preventsyour body’s testosterone fromconverting into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).The androgenic hormone ofDHT causes the hairfollicles to gradually lose their strength,whichovertime leads to hair loss.Whenthis testosterone is blocked, it reduces the DHT levels inthe bodywhich stops the powerful hormone from reachinghairfollicles,which can prolong, or entirely reverse the hair loss.

How does Finasteride work?

Finasteride works by blocking the conversion of testosterone into a byproduct called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In men who are genetically susceptible to hair loss, DHT will start to attack hair follicles and cause your hair to miniaturize with every growth cycle until it’s eventually too small to be seen and the follicle dies.

Since DHT is the primary hormone responsible for hair loss in men, the most effective way to prevent hair loss is to block DHT.

When a DHT blocker like finasteride is taken, your body produces 66% less DHT. Less DHT in your body means your hair will stop falling out, and possibly start regrowing.

How effective is Finasteride ?

Finasteride has shown to be positively effective at preventing further hair loss in men, in some situations the drug has even shown some signs of regrowth. A study was conducted with 2,000 men evaluating the effectiveness of a 1mg dose of finasteride on male pattern hair loss. The results showed positive impacts as 83% of men noticed less hair loss at the crown of the head, and 70% noticed less at the hairline.

What are the side effects of Finasteride?

Like most drugs, finasteride has some side effects but only a small portion of people using finasteride experience these side effects. It is always good to understand what to expect.

How does hair medication work?

Finasteride works by blocking the conversion of testosterone into DHT, a hormone that causes male pattern baldness. You’ll notice less hair fall and thicker hair within 3-6 months of starting treatment, and increased hair growth with continued use. Minoxidil induces an early development phase when applied on your scalp by increasing blood flow. Together, Finasteride and Minoxidil offer a powerful combo to promote hair regrowth
