FAQs

What is Finasteride? <

Finasteride is a clinically tested, Health Canada authorized treatment for hair loss. It is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor which works by decreasing the breakdown of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is believed to be the reason for inherited male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). By reducing the amount of available DHT, it decreases the ability for this hormone to cause hair loss.

How effective is Finasteride? <

Taking a daily dose of 1mg of Finasteride for a minimum of three months has proven to be 85% effective in increasing hair regrowth. But your hair will reach its full potential at the one-year mark. It’s important to note that Finasteride will not create hair follicles; it treats existing follicles, so start early and continue the therapy for as long as recommended to see results. Continued use of finasteride is needed to maintain desired effects beyond one year.

What are the side effects of Finasteride? <

Finasteride is rather well-tolerated, but like all medications, it can cause some side-effects. Although rare, Finasteride can cause sexual dysfunction in 1-3% of men. This can include loss of libido, erectile dysfunction or decreased ejaculate volume. These side effects tend to subside after discontinuation. As with any medication, Finasteride can cause a severe allergic reaction. Although very rare, if you experience symptoms such as trouble breathing, swelling of your throat or tongue or hives please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately.

Can I safely use Finasteride with Minoxidil? <

Yes, they actually work in harmony to promote hair regrowth. Finasteride focuses on preventing the breakdown of testosterone into DHT and Minoxidil stimulates blood flow to the scalp.

Is finasteride linked to Prostate Cancer? <

When it comes to Finasteride and prostate cancer, the link is far from known. Studies have shown a possible increased risk but the clinical significance of these findings are inconclusive.

Is Finasteride available over the counter? <

No, Finasteride is available by prescription only.
