Finasteride is an FDA-approved and clinically proven medication for treating male pattern hair loss, a common condition that affects millions of men as they age. This medication works by preventing the enzyme 5-alpha reductase from changing testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Lowered levels of DHT help slow or stop hair follicle shrinkage and may even promote new hair growth.
Finasteride is considered an effective treatment for hair loss. But it's essential to understand that its effects can only be maintained if you take the medication consistently. Additionally, there may be potential side effects such as decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, or reduced semen volume. Be sure to discuss these risks with your healthcare provider beforehand, prior to making an informed decision about starting this medication.

Frequently asked questions
About Finasteride (Generic Propecia®) for Hair Loss
Does finasteride have side effects?
Yes, like many medications, finasteride can have side effects. While the majority of users tolerate finasteride well, some might experience side effects such as decreased libido (sex drive), erectile dysfunction, minor swelling in the hands or feet, or changes in mood. It's important to remember that every individual is unique, so reactions to the medication can differ. Before starting finasteride, always consult with a doctor to understand the potential risks and that you're taking the right medication for your needs.
How do I get a prescription for finasteride?
Securing a prescription for finasteride begins with a consultation with a licensed dermatologist or healthcare provider. They'll assess your hair loss pattern, its severity and your medical history to determine if finasteride is the optimal solution for your hair restoration needs.
Can finasteride help regrow your hairline?
In many cases, yes. Finasteride has been shown to be effective in promoting hair regrowth all over the scalp, including the vulnerable hairline region. It targets male pattern baldness at the source, making it a top choice for many facing hair loss, regardless of the areas of scalp affected.
Can I reduce the risk of side effects of finasteride?
Yes. Switching to a topical formulation like XYON's Topical Finasteride with SiloxysSystem Gel can help lower your risk of experiencing side effects.

How common are side effects from finasteride?
A minority of men might experience side effects. However, it's reassuring to note that the vast majority of users enjoy the benefits of hair regrowth without significant adverse reactions. As always, it's crucial to monitor any changes and consult your dermatologist.
How long does finasteride stay in your system?
While finasteride's half-life is relatively short at around 5-7 hours, its positive effects on the hair follicles tend to last much longer. This longevity is why consistent, daily intake as prescribed is crucial to maintain and enhance results.
Does finasteride lower testosterone?
Technically, finasteride doesn't directly testosterone. Instead, its main action is to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). It's DHT that is often the primary culprit behind hair thinning and loss.
Does finasteride work better when combine with minoxidil (Generic for Rogaine®)
Absolutely. The combination of finasteride and minoxidil can offer a powerful dual-action approach to hair regrowth. While finasteride operates hormonally, minoxidil functions to optimize blood circulation and stimulate hair follicle cells. Together, they can synergistically enhance hair restoration outcomes.
Does finasteride only come in a pill?
The pill is the most recognized form of finasteride. However, innovative solutions, such as topical gels or creams that incorporate finasteride, are becoming increasingly popular and are available for those seeking alternatives.
Does topical finasteride have side effects?
Topical finasteride, like the oral version, can have side effects. However, due to its localized application, these side effects might be less pronounced or prevalent in users. The types of side effects will be similar, but are believed to occur at a lower frequency.
Can I take finasteride with other medications?
Combining medications can sometimes result in interactions. It's of paramount importance to disclose any medications or supplements you're currently taking to your healthcare provider. To date, there are no known significant interactions with finasteride, but you should still take steps to ensure that you have a safe and positive experience while on treatment.
What causes hair loss in men?
Hair loss in men can be a result of various factors. While genetics play a significant role, other triggers include hormonal imbalances, heightened levels of stress, certain medications, or underlying medical conditions. Finasteride's primary action is to address hair loss cause by DHT, a testosterone metabolite known to lead to thinning hair.
