What is Finax (Finasteride) used for?
Finax (Finasteride) contains the active ingredient finasteride which is proven to help prevent hair loss caused by male pattern baldness. This is accomplished by inhibiting the action of a compound in the body called type II 5-alpha reductase. This compound is responsible for converting the male hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This can damage hair follicles and lead to hair loss in men who are genetically sensitive to it.
How should I use Finax (Finasteride)?
Finax (Finasteride) is typically prescribed to be taken orally once a day at the indicated amount. It may be taken with or without food along with a full glass of water. Never split, chew, or crush the tablets before taking them. It may take three to six months of treatment before you notice a decrease in hair loss or increase in hair density. Continued use of this medicine is recommended to obtain the maximum benefit. If you stop taking it, you are likely to lose any hair you have gained within 9 to 12 months.
