What is finasteride?

Finasteride is used in the treatment of male pattern hair loss, which is also called androgenetic alopecia. It belongs to a group of medicines known as 5- alpha-reductase inhibitors. Finasteride can prevent further male pattern hair loss and increase hair growth, in men with mild or moderate hair loss.

How to take finasteride

Finasteride 1mg tablets should be taken once a day, by mouth. You can take the tablet with or without food, and with a glass of water. Never divide or crush your tablet. Do not take more than 1 tablet each day. You can drink alcohol whilst taking finasteride.

If you miss a dose, take your next tablet when it is due. Do not take a double dose or take more finasteride than you should, as this will not make it work faster.

How does finasteride work?

Finasteride is a 5- alpha-reductase inhibitor. Finasteride lowers the levels of an androgen called DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which is one of the main causes of male pattern hair loss. When taking finasteride once a day, your levels of DHT will become lower, preventing further hair loss and increasing hair growth.

How effective is finasteride?

Finasteride has been found to maintain hair or visibly improve hair in 90% of men when taken every day for 5 years. You may need to take finasteride for 3 to 6 months before you see an improvement. Finasteride is most effective when taken every day and is safe to be taken for a long time.

Finasteride is only effective while you are taking it. After stopping the treatment, the improvements will usually start to reverse by 6 months and return to a baseline level by 9 to 12 months.
