Finasteride Hair Loss Treatment

Key Factor:

  • ✅ Taking Finasteride 1mg for 5 years gives men a 90% chance of maintaining or regrowing their hair.
  • ✅ Finasteride 1mg, also known as generic Propecia, is a daily tablet used to treat male pattern baldness. It's a potential solution for men experiencing hair loss.
  • ✅ Finasteride can also treat benign prostate enlargement (BPE/BPH) using a different daily dose of 5mg.

How does Finasteride 1mg work?

Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. It works by blocking the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in hair follicles.

In men with male pattern hair loss, DHT makes hair follicles shrink and hair thin out. By reducing DHT levels, Finasteride helps regrow hair and improve its thickness in most men affected by hair loss.How does Finasteride work

FAQ

  • What is Finasteride Tablet?

    Finasteride is a medication designed to help reduce or counter the effects of male pattern baldness. Finasteride is the generic name and is sometimes sold under the brand name, Propecia.

    Finasteride works by blocking an enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone(DHT). DHT affects hair follicles causing them to shrink and eventually not grow any hair.

    Finasteride is the active ingredient and taking either Propecia or Finasteride will have the same effect. However, sometimes, generic medications are cheaper than branded ones.

  • How is Finasteride taken?

    Both Finasteride and Propecia are tablets that should be taken daily. Finasteride and Propecia are available to buy in courses of 4-week multiples.

  • How soon will I see results?

    Finasteride is effective at treating male hair loss in over 90% of cases. However, it usually takes around three to six months of daily medication before any results can be seen. And up to a year for the full effect to be noticeable.

    Most men will experience either new hair growth or no loss of additional hair when taking Finasteride. Finasteride is more effective at reducing hair loss at the crown of the head than it is at a receding front hairline.

  • How long do I have to use Finasteride, to get significant result?

    After consistently taking finasteride for 12 months, you should notice further improvements in your hair. These build on the progress you've seen between months three to six.

    Most studies on finasteride demonstrate significant increases in hair count, improved thickness, and a reduction in the hair loss process after a year of treatment.

  • What are the side effects of taking Finasteride?

    All medication comes with side effects, and it’s important to consider these when taking any medication.

    The side effects of Finasteride are uncommon and usually mild. Finasteride can:

    • Lower your mood
    • Reduce sex drive
    • Affect your ability to get an erection

    If you experience these side effects, they may diminish over time.

    However, if you experience any of the following, you may be having an allergic reaction and should stop taking Finasteride:

    • Itchy rash
    • Swollen lips, face, tongue or throat
    • Difficulty swallowing or breathing

    If you have any of the above symptoms, you should stop taking Finasteride and contact your GP.

  • What happens when you stop taking Finasteride?

  • Why men should see a doctor before starting Finasteride treatment

    Before starting Finasteride, it's important to see a doctor. While finasteride is effective for male pattern hair loss, it's not the only cause of hair loss.

    A doctor can confirm the cause of your hair loss, conduct tests if needed, and determine if other treatments are necessary.

  • Is Finasteride used for any other purposes besides treating male pattern hair loss?

    Yes, Finasteride is used for other purposes besides treating male pattern hair loss. In higher doses (5mg tablets), it's prescribed to treat prostate enlargement. For hair loss, the tablets are typically 1mg.

  • Does taking a higher dose of Finasteride lead to better results?

    No, taking a higher dose of Finasteride doesn't make it work better for hair loss. In fact, it can increase side effects without improving results, as confirmed by studies. Stick to the prescribed 1mg tablet daily for the best balance of effectiveness and safety.

  • Is it safe to take less than 1mg of Finasteride or use it less often to reduce the risk of side effects?

    Some websites suggest using Finasteride differently to reduce side effects when treating hair loss. This may involve taking 1mg of Finasteride only three days a week or using smaller daily doses like 0.25mg or 0.5mg.

    Research shows that a daily 1mg dose of Finasteride effectively reduces DHT for most men. Splitting tablets into smaller doses may work for some in DHT suppression, but it may not be as effective when the dose is less than 1mg for most men.

    It's best to take Finasteride as prescribed at 1mg daily for treating hair loss. Splitting the tablets or taking it less often may not work as well and can be risky for pregnant women because of potential harm to unborn babies.

  • Does Finasteride work in women?

    No, Finasteride does not work for women. Women's hair thinning and loss differ from men's, and Finasteride is not effective in treating it.

    Moreover, it can have severe side effects in women of childbearing age and should not be used by them.

  • Does Finasteride work in older men?

    Finasteride has been studied for hair loss in men up to age 41, but its effectiveness in older men hasn't been well-researched or confirmed. Many older men still use it though.

  • Does Finasteride work in all men?

    Finasteride doesn't work for every man. If there's no improvement in 6 months, it's recommended to stop the treatment. Specific details about effectiveness can be found in medical trial data.

  • Can Finasteride lower sex drive and affect fertility?

    Finasteride may lead to decreased sex drive and fertility concerns in some people, but stopping the medication usually resolves these issues,

    as stated in the manufacturer's patient information leaflet and a 2017 NHS review. For personalized guidance and information on possible side effects, it's best to consult a healthcare professional.

  • Can Finasteride restore hair in cases of complete hair loss?

    No, Finasteride will not reverse complete hair loss. It doesn't promote regrowth in areas where hair has been entirely lost, such as a receding hairline or completely bald areas.

  • Can Finasteride lead to depression?

    Rarely, Finasteride has been associated with depression. If you experience depression while taking it, stop the medication and consult a doctor.

  • Are the benefits of Finasteride long-term?

    Finasteride takes about 6 months for noticeable improvement, with the best results after about 2 years. If you stop taking it, improvements usually fade over several months.

  • Is Finasteride 1mg available through the NHS?

    Finasteride 1mg is generally not available through the NHS in the UK because hair loss treatment is often considered cosmetic and not typically funded by the NHS.

  • What is the difference between Finasteride and Propecia

    In 2014, the UK patent for Propecia expired, making 'generic Finasteride' available from other pharmaceutical companies.

    Finasteride is the same as the branded original but is prescribed and supplied by its medical name, rather than its brand name.

    Propecia is a brand name, and the active ingredient in Propecia tablets is Finasteride 1mg. Medically, Propecia tablets and Finasteride 1mg tablets are identical.

  • Can Finasteride fix receding hairline?

    Finasteride can help reverse a receding hairline and stimulate new growth, particularly in the crown area. While it may not always fully restore hair, it can significantly slow down hair loss.

    Results vary among individuals, and consulting a healthcare professional is recommended to discuss potential benefits and risks.
