In previous video on the stage-wise treatment of hair loss in men, we discussed about the two FDA approved medications: The tablet Finasteride commonly known as Propecia and minoxidil topical application on the scalp. Today we will discuss on Finasteride side effects in the treatment of hair loss in men.
We also discussed almost everything on hair loss in our previous episodes, starting from what causes hair loss both in men and women, the stages of hair loss in men and women, the medical treatments of hair loss, important facts and misconceptions on hair loss, some bad habits that can cause hair loss, foods that can reverse hair loss and many more.
Lets first quickly recap some important points on Finasteride and then we will discuss the side effects and real facts on the long term use of finasteride – like, does it really have those side effects?
Finasteride is a 5-Alpha-Reductase inhibitor which blocks the formation or conversion of testosterone to Di-Hydroxy-Testosterone (in short DHT). DHT is the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. It acts on the hair follicles and gradually miniaturises the follicles and completely kills them as discussed in our previous episodes.
