FINDIL – 1 (Finasteride 1 mg) 10 X 10 Alu Alu

Finasteride is a medication commonly prescribed for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). It works by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). By reducing DHT levels in the body, finasteride helps to shrink the prostate gland in men with BPH, relieving symptoms such as urinary hesitancy, frequent urination, and urgency. Additionally, in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, finasteride can slow down or even reverse hair loss by preventing further miniaturization of hair follicles on the scalp. However, patients need to be aware of potential side effects, including sexual dysfunction, decreased libido, and in some cases, depression or anxiety. As with any medication, it’s essential to discuss potential risks and benefits with a healthcare provider before starting finasteride therapy.
