Finasteride (also known under the brand names of Propecia or Proscar) is a type of medication used to treat Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness.
It cannot be used by women, teenagers or children.
Finasteride is effective in decreasing the amount of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen, a hormone that triggers the development of male characteristics and is created when testosterone is converted into a new form, dihydrotestosterone.
Hair loss occurs when DHT attaches itself to receptors on hair follicles, causing them to shrink which leads to male pattern baldness.
Rather than acting upon the follicles themselves, Finasteride gets to work on the prostate, inhibiting DHT's production which leads to increased hair regrowth and slower hair loss.
Finasteride doesn’t affect hair growth on other body parts. Although hair regrowth becomes effective in 3 - 6 months, Finasteride is known to have some rather unpleasant, life-affecting side-effects.
Let’s check out the common side effects of Finasteride:
• Impotence, loss of interest in sex, less sperm produced if ejaculation occurs, trouble reaching orgasm. These side effects may continue after you stop taking Finasteride.
- Feeling like you might pass out
- Skin rash.
• Swelling in your hands or feet;
• Swelling or tenderness in the breasts;
