Finasteride is prescribed to treat male pattern baldness or benign prostatic hypertrophy, more commonly known as an enlarged prostate.
The mechanisms involved in this treatment are relatively complex. Essentially Finasteride inhibits the production of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase
. 5-alpha-reductase interacts with testosterone to produce dihydrotestosterone
. Dihydrotestosterone contributes to the conditions being treated; male pattern baldness and enlarged prostates.
By lowering the levels of 5-alpha-reductase, less of it is available to interact with testosterone, so less dihydrotestosterone is produced. With reduced levels of dihydrotestosterone, its negative effects will gradually begin to reverse.
The beneficial effects of Finasteride will begin to diminish if treatment stops, as the levels of dihydrotestosterone will increase once again. Finasteride is not a cure for male pattern baldness or benign prostatic hypertrophy.
Why Buy Finasteride?
Men buy Finasteride to alleviate or reverse male pattern baldness or an enlarged prostate.
Most men (2 out of 3) taking Finasteride for male pattern baldness experience visible regrowth of hair within 3 months of starting treatment. In men that do not experience regrowth Finasteride usually prevents further loss of hair.
An enlarged prostate can produce a number of unpleasant and painful side effects, and may lead to more serious conditions or even surgery to release trapped urine. Finasteride offers relief from a number of enlarged prostate symptoms:
- Difficulty urinating
- Decreased urine flow
- Nighttime urination
- Hesitation at the start of urination
- Feeling like the bladder is full
- Urine retention
It may take 3 to 6 months of treatment before the full effects of Finasteride are felt.
A prescription is required to buy Finasteride.
Finasteride is a tablet typically taken once a day, with or without food.
A missed dose should be taken when remembered, or skipped entirely if it is near time for the next dose.
Treatment very often spans years. In the vast majority of cases, the benefits of treatment will reverse once treatment has stopped, unless an underlying cause of the condition has been discovered and addressed. This means regrown hair may be lost and the prostate may once again become enlarged. Do not stop taking this medication without first speaking to a physician.
It may take some time for the full effects of the medication to be seen; up to 3 months for male pattern baldness and up to 6 months for an enlarged prostate.
