FAQs

  •  During hair loss, DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone that binds to the hair follicles leading to hair shrinkage and loss.  During this process DHT stops hair growth causing hair to become finer, shorter and eventually die. Finasteride counteracts this process by binding to DHT. This inhibition prevents the accumulation of DHT and in turn reduces the level of DHT binding to your hair follicles.

  • Finasteride is suitable for men aged 18 or older with mild to moderate hair loss. It is not suitable for use in females and is unlikely to be of benefit to men with advanced hair loss.

  • Clinical studies has demonstrated that Finasteride is an effective treatment for hair loss. Finasteride is effective at lowering DHT levels by up to 60% and has been shown to be effective in almost 90% of people who take it at stopping hair loss.

  • Finasteride needs to be taken regularly to have an effect and benefits can be observed after about six months but optimum results are seen at 12 months.

  • Clinical evidence shows that Finasteride is an effective treatment alone but in combination with Minoxidil is when optimal results are observed.

  • You should always be compliant with all medicines. If you stop taking Finasteride the clinical benefits you have achieved are usually lost within 6-12 months as Finasteride is a reversible drug.

  • Orally once daily

  • Reported side effects are rare, seen in less than 5% of patients and are temporary. Contact the Sons doctors if you experience any side effects while taking it.
