Description
Finasteride works by blocking the conversion of the hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone in the prostate. It does this by blocking an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Dihydrotestosterone is partly responsible for making the prostate enlarge. Therefore a reduced amount of dihydrotestosterone in the prostate causes it to shrink. This helps you to pass urine more easily.

Physicians use finasteride for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), informally known as an enlarged prostate. The FDA-approved dose is 5 mg once a day. Six months or more of treatment with finasteride may be required to determine the therapeutic results of treatment. If the drug is discontinued, any therapeutic benefits reverse within about 6–8 months. Finasteride may improve the symptoms associated with BPH such as difficulty urinating, getting up during the night to urinate, hesitation at the start of urination, and decreased urinary flow.

Finasteride is sometimes used in hormone replacement therapy for male-to-female transsexuals in combination with a form of estrogen due to its antiandrogen properties.

Applications

Proscar (Finasteride) is used to treat male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) in men. Topically (on the scalp itself) it is of some effect in minimizing further hair loss. In combination with Nizoral and spironolactone (which smells awful, by the way) it can actually reverse loss moderately.
Used for the treatment of prostate disease. Clinical studies suggest that, with Finasteride 1 mg/day, continuously taking it for 3 months or slightly long , users can have their hair regrow, after 1 year if continuous treatment, hair growth rate is up to 48%.
Finasteride comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day with or without food. Take finasteride at around the same time every day
