What are Finasteride tablets 0.2 mg for male pattern alopecia?

Finasteride is a medication commonly prescribed for the management of male pattern alopecia, also known as androgenetic alopecia. It operates through a specific mechanism of action aimed at retarding the progression of this condition.

Male pattern alopecia is primarily influenced by the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone. DHT is believed to contribute to the miniaturization of hair follicles in individuals genetically predisposed to this type of hair loss. Finasteride addresses this issue by inhibiting the action of an enzyme known as type II 5α-reductase.

Type II 5α-reductase is responsible for the conversion of testosterone into DHT within hair follicles. By suppressing the activity of this enzyme, finasteride reduces the levels of DHT in the scalp. Lower DHT levels can lead to a decrease in the negative effects associated with this hormone on hair follicles, such as hair thinning and eventual hair loss.

Finasteride in tablet form is usually administered once daily. You can take the tablets with you when travelling, and unlike hair growth lotion, this medicine doesn't ruin your hairstyle or grease the hair. Clinical studies have shown that finasteride can slow down the progression of male pattern alopecia in a substantial number of cases. However, it may take longer period of consistent use before noticeable improvements in hair growth or retention are observed.
