The majority of men will experience this at some point in their lives.

The Difference Between Propecia and Finasteride

It is the generic name and active ingredient of the unbranded tablet and both medications have the same efficacy.

The Definition of Alopecia

Alopecia is a hair condition which occurs in men and is referred to male pattern hair loss. Essentially, it is able to grow from each follicle approximately for three years. After about three years, it is naturally shed to enable new growth to occur in the same follicle. If a man has alopecia, his follicles will become smaller and smaller over a period of time and because of this, the strands will become thinner, thus causing fallout. Eventually, the follicle will become so small that it will no longer be able to reach the surface of the skin.

Dihydrotestosterone is the main reason for this particular change in a man’s follicles. And if this hormone is not targeted earlier on, hair that has been gone for a long period of time may become permanent. That is why early treatment is highly beneficial.

How Does it Work?

Finasteride is the active ingredient of this generic medication. It is able to work by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme found in the body. This particular enzyme is usually the one responsible for turning testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, which has a negative effect in the growth. By using this medication, the presence of the dihydrotestosterone is significantly lowered, thus protecting from thinning and from falling out.

How Fast Can Results Be Seen?

Within a a few months of regularly using the treatment, results will begin to be noticeable. However, it is also important to point out that noticeable full results may also take up to one year. For this reason, it is imperative that a patient continue on with his treatment long enough to be able to see proper results. The treatment and cure of hair loss does not happen overnight and patience is of the utmost importance.

If there is no noticeable positive results even after using it in a regular manner for one year and even more, it is recommended that the treatment be stopped. If one decides to cease the use of this medication, he is more likely to lose any of the hair growth that has been gained from the previous 12-month treatment period. It is essential to seek consultation with a doctor to gain the best solutions for this medical condition.
