Finasteride is used in the treatment of male pattern baldness (hair loss), a common condition amongst men. The medication works by blocking the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone.
Finasteride is also known as the branded drugs Propecia and Proscar. The pharmaceutical company Merck originally developed Finasteride to treat enlarged prostates. During the clinical trials of the drug on men with prostate problems, it was noted that the subjects showed an intriguing side effect – the growth of hair. After obtaining the FDA’s approval as treatment for enlarged prostates in men, the company decided to pursue another possibility, which is to use it in the treatment of male pattern baldness (hair loss).
Propecia prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body.
Propecia is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. Propecia is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children.
Propecia may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Propecia should never be taken by a woman or a child. Finasteride can be absorbed through the skin, and women or children should not be permitted to handle Propecia tablets.
Although Propecia is not for use by women, this medication can cause congenital disabilities if a woman is exposed to it during pregnancy. Propecia tablets should not be handled by a woman who is pregnant or who may become pregnant. Propecia tablets are coated and will prevent contact with the active ingredient during normal handling, provided that the tablets are not broken or crushed. If a woman accidentally comes into contact with this medication from a broken or crushed tablet, wash the area with soap and water right away.
The FDA approved in December 1997 the use of a 1mg dose of Finasteride for treating androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness in men. Propecia is the first drug to effectively treat the condition of male pattern baldness in men.
Finasteride works by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme whose function is converting testosterone into androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The 1mg dose of Finasteride lowers the DHT levels in the men’s scalp by as much as 60% when the drug is taken daily. The progression of hair loss is stopped efficiently by the reduction of DHT in the scalp. Most of the men who participated in the clinical trials experienced substantial increase in the growth of their hair.
The reduction of DHT in the scalp is so far the only known and proven way to arrest hair loss. Finasteride is now used as the first line of attack for the treatment of male pattern baldness.
The 1mg dose of Finasteride arrests the progression of male pattern baldness. The daily use of Finasteride reduces by as much as 60% the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels in the scalp, which is responsible for hair loss. People who begin to lose hair must immediately consult their doctor to ask for the possibility of using Finasteride to arrest the progression of the hair loss.
In many cases of men using Finasteride to treat male pattern baldness, a significant number of them not only arrested the progression of the hair loss but also noticed substantial increase in hair growth.
As a treatment for male pattern baldness, Finasteride is to be taken as a 1mg tablet, once a day. Do not change the dosage of your medication without your doctor instructing you to.
Most medicines have unwanted side effects although not everyone will experience them. The manufacturer lists all the possible side effects in the patient information leaflet, which users of Finasteride might experience. The side effects may go away naturally after several days or weeks of use. If the side effects persist and bother you, immediately consult your doctor.
Some men who used Finasteride reported a reduced sex drive. Some reported inability to get an erection. Other possible side effects include breast tenderness, allergic-type reactions, and depressed mood.
Users of Finasteride must also watch for any pain or lump in the breast area or any discharge from the nipples. If you experience any of these side effects, report it immediately to your doctor because there are very few reports of men developing breast cancer after taking Finasteride.
Any other symptoms that you think may be caused by Finasteride must be reported to your doctor right away.
