Hair loss can be a temporary condition brought on by stress, sickness or weight loss. In these instances, the hair can grow back over time. However, male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is typically a hereditary condition which affects a third of men in 30s and half of men in their 50s. Signs of hair loss can begin to show in a man’s 20s and can be identified by a receding hairline or thinning of hair around the crown.
For many men, the loss of hair can be harrowing, as hair is a common signal of fertility and can have a drastic effect on a man's confidence. But with the right treatment at the right time, hair loss can slowed and halted to preserve the hair you have for longer.
Finasteride is an effective and clinically proven treatment to slow the rate at which hair falls out and reduces the length of time the body naturally sheds hairs. This regulates the hair growth cycle, halting hair loss and promoting the growth of new and healthy hairs.
Finasteride for hair loss is available in a 1mg tablet which is taken daily. The tablet can be taken before or after food. Swallow the tablet whole with water.
If you miss a dose of Finasteride, skip the missed dose and take the next dose normally. Do not double up on the medication to make up for the missed dose.
Finasteride is a DHT-inhibitor which means it prevents the male sex hormone testosterone being converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT plays a role in hair growth on the chest, back and armpits in men, as well as the development of the male genitalia.
When the genetic traits responsible for hair loss are present, DHT can cause the hair follicles to weaken and die. By blocking this hormone, the follicles can stay strong and your hair count can remain high.
The treatment does not promote new hair growth but instead works to slow the rate at which hair falls out. When taken correctly, Finasteride can reduce or inhibit hair loss within 3 months of use. If the treatment of Finasteride is stopped, the rate of hair loss before treatment will resume within 6 to 12 months.
If you are allergic to Finasteride or any of the other ingredients listed within the patient information leaflet (PIL) which comes with your medicine, do not take Finasteride.
This medicine contains lactose monohydrate. Speak to your doctor before taking Finasteride if your doctor has indicated that you are allergic or sensitive to certain sugars.
Like all medication, Finasteride carries the risk of certain side effects though not everybody gets them. Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before beginning treatment. Always follow the doctor’s instructio
Possible side effects of Finasteride may include:
This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. For more information regarding the safety of this medicine, we encourage you to read the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine.
Depression and suicidal thoughts have been reported by patients receiving treatment with Finasteride. If you experience a decline in your mental health during your course of treatment, you should stop taking Finasteride and seek medical advice from your doctor as soon as possible.
If you experience any side effects, whether listed above or in the leaflet which comes with your treatment, speak to your doctor or a qualified pharmacist.
Always keep medicine out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same condition and symptoms as you.
Do not dispose of medicine via household waste or water waste as this can be detrimental to the environment. If you have any medicine which you no longer require, or if it has expired, take it to your nearest pharmacy and ask them to dispose of them on your behalf.
Finasteride is a prescription-only medicine for men only and should not be taken by women. Pregnant women should avoid contact with the drug as Finasteride can affect the development of genitalia in the male foetus.
Small traces of the drug can be passed on through the semen during unprotected sex, so it is important to use condoms while taking Finasteride.
If you forget to take Finasteride when you should, skip the missed dose and continue to take Finasteride as you normally would. Do not take a double dose to make up for the missed dose.
If you accidentally take more Finasteride than you should, speak to your doctor immediately. Taking more than the recommended dose will not make the medicine work faster but may increase your risk of experiencing side effects.
Propecia is the branded variant of Finasteride, which is marketed by Merck, Sharp & Dohme. Both medicines contain the same active ingredient known as Finasteride, which is a type-II 5-alpha reductase inhibitor.
The use of Finasteride may negatively affect your fertility. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.
While Finasteride begins to work in approximately 3 months, it may take several years of continuous treatment before you notice any significant difference in your hair count.
If you abruptly stop treatment, there is a high chance your hair loss will resume at the rate before taking Finasteride. Furthermore, you may lose hairs which have grown during the course of taking Finasteride. Before stopping treatment, you should speak to your doctor.
The effects of Finasteride, which are the strengthening of hair follicles and the regrowth of hair, were successful in over 90% of patients who took Finasteride daily. For the cessation of hair loss, Finasteride is proven to be very effective.
No, women should not take Finasteride. Finasteride is only intended to treat hair loss in men, commonly referred to as male pattern baldness, and should not be used to treat alopecia in women.
