About Finasteride

What is Finasteride?


  • Finasteride is used to treat common hereditary hair loss (male pattern baldness), receding hairline and thinning hair in men aged 18-65. Finasteride lowers the levels of DHT in the scalp, a major cause of male pattern hair loss. With continued use, Finasteride can help to reverse the balding process and prevent further hair loss.
  • Finasteride is sold under different trade names around the world including Propecia ®.
  • It is available in two forms 1) Tablet (1mg or 5mg) 2) Topical Solution (This is available only through YourMD.ca)




How do I use this medicine?


  • Take one tablet daily. (The treatment will not work faster if you take more than once tablet a day)
  • If you forget to take a dose, just carry on with the next one as usual.
  • The tablet can be taken on an empty stomach or with a meal.
  • Finasteride 1mg: The tablet should be swallowed whole and should not be divided or crushed.
  • Finasteride 5mg:
    • Using a pill cutter (available at the pharmacy), cut the tablet in to 4 parts.
    • Have one 1.25mg tablet daily. Don’t worry the extra 0.25mg will not impact
    • Any crushed or broken tablets should not be handled by women or children.
  • Finasteride Topical Solution:
    • Apply directly to your scalp, twice a day, daily.
  • Additional information is included with the product.
  • You should take Finasteride continually to get thebest results.




How soon can I expect to see results?


  • Male pattern hair loss is a condition that develops over a long period of time and hair re-growth with Finasteride also takes time.
  • You may need to use Finasteride daily for 3 to 6 months before you notice an increase in the hair density or reduction in hair loss. Continued use of Finasteride is recommended to obtain maximum benefit.
  • Once your hair has started to re-grow, you need to continue taking this medicine once a day for the growth to be maintained. If you stop the treatment, you are likely to lose the hair you have gained within 9 to 12 months.




Is this medicine suitable for me?


Do not take this medicine if:

  • You are allergic to finasteride.
  • You are a woman (this medicine is for men). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid handling Finasteride tablets, especially if broken or crushed. Finasteride can affect hormone levels, which could lead to complications with pregnancy.
  • Your sexual partner is breastfeeding, pregnant (unless you use condoms) or trying to get pregnant.
  • You have prostate cancer.
  • You have kidney or liver problems.
  • You are under 18 or over 65.




Are there any possible side effects?


Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. Stop using the medicine and seek medical advice immediately if you experience any of the following:

  • Signs of allergic reaction, such as swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat, which may cause difficulty in swallowing or breathing.
  • Changes in the breast tissue such as swelling, tenderness, or if there is any discharge from the nipple.
  • Testicular pain.
Although uncommon, in clinical trials 3.8% of patients noticed some sort of sexual side effects, compared to 2.1% of patients who were taking the placebo. These side effects included less desire to have sex, difficulties with erectile function and decreases in the volume of semen released during sex. The side effects are usually temporary and disappear when the treatment is stopped. This is not an exhaustive list of possible side effects. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.




How do I store the medicine?


  • Keep out of the sight and reach of children.
  • Do not use this medicine after the expiry date printed on the bottle.
  • Store below 25°C.




Other important information

  • Please keep your family doctor informed of any medicines you are taking, as it could interact with other medicines you may be taking.
