What is Finasteride?

Finasteride 1mg tablets inhibit the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in your body, allowing natural re-growth. This treatment is very effective in men with a mild to moderate amount of hair loss, not solely in the temple area and results are usually apparent after a few months; with significant improvements being recorded for up to five years after beginning treatment.

Propecia, manufactured by Merck, Sharp and Dohme (MSD), was introduced to treat this problem but the UK patent expired in October 2014 and therefore other pharmaceutical companies could then manufacture a generic equivalent of Propecia, called finasteride 1mg.


How effective is it?

Clinical trials conducted by MSD showed that finasteride 1mg helps to reverse the balding process, with 90% of people seeing either increased hair growth or prevention of further hair loss.

It may take 3 to 6 months for the full effect to develop. It is important to keep taking it as, if you stop taking finasteride, you are likely to lose the hair you have gained within 9-12 months.

 Finasteride is most effective when used to treat hair loss on the crown of the head or both the crown and temples; it may not yield the same results when hair loss is limited to the temple area only.

Finasteride must not come into contact with any woman during pregnancy, as it can harm the foetus.
