Propecia 

Indication

Propecia (Finasteride) belongs to a group of medications known as 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors. It is used to treat male pattern baldness by preventing the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase from converting testosterone to its active form in the body (dihydrotestosterone or DHT).

DHT plays a major role in inherited male pattern baldness (androgenic Alopecia), and by preventing its production Propecia (Finasteride) can stimulate hair growth in many men with mild-to-moderate inherited male pattern baldness. The medication usually starts to work within 3 months of beginning treatment. The effectiveness of the medication varies – for most men, it prevents further hair loss and promotes some growth of new hair. In general, however, it will not be possible to grow back all the hair that has been lost. The new hair will stay for only one year after the medication has been stopped.

Propecia (Finasteride) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Propecia (Finasteride) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Propecia (Finasteride) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Propecia (Finasteride) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

Precautions

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. In many cases, interactions are intended or are managed by close monitoring. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Pregnancy and birth defects: When absorbed into the system of a pregnant woman, Propecia (Finasteride) may cause abnormalities of the genitals in a male baby.
