Finasteride is a pill that treats enlarged prostate. Finasteridee Proscar, which contains Finsterersin as an active ingredient and reduces the amount of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in your body by blocking its production. Finsteridren works by stopping the enzyme Type II alpha-reductase from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This makes it easier for men to get rid of this hormone through urine.
Finasteride not only inhibits DHT but also has many other benefits such as: – Treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia . Signs include urinary problems like reduced number or urination and frequent urge to urinate particularly during nighttime hours, pain while urinating or ejaculating, blood in the urine or semen etc. Finstersierin helps by reducing prostate size and enlargement of its tissue to reduce symptoms related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). – Finsteridren can even treat baldness . Finsterserine has been used as a treatment for male pattern hair loss since 1997.
It works by blocking DHT which is responsible for shrinking hair follicles on scalp. This action allows existing hairs to grow normally so they don’t fall off easily like before finstererin treatments were done Patients who have widespread thinning should use Finasteride along with other medications such as Rogaine(minoxidil) or Revivogen/Revivol
– A study shows that Finsteride helps to reduce the risk of prostate cancer . Finsterserin blocks conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone which is a hormone known to promote growth and development of Prostate adenocarcinoma cells. But this study was done on men who had been diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in 1992-1995, before Finasteridren came out in market. That’s why it may not be approved by FDA for treating or preventing prostate cancer
How Finasteride works ?
Finasteride has two main purposes – treatment of enlarged prostate gland(benign prostatic hyperplaisa),and male pattern hair loss called alopecia areata. Finsterersin is a pill that comes in tablet form and is taken orally. When you take Finsterersin, it blocks the enzyme type II alpha-reductase.
DHT is the hormone that contributes to both conditions – enlarged prostate and hair loss. So, by blocking the production of this hormone, Finasteride helps to improve symptoms of enlarged prostate and stops hair loss from happening.
Finasteride side effects ?
The common Finasteride side effects are decreased sexual desire, difficulty getting or maintaining an erection(erectile dysfunction), ejaculation problems, breast tenderness or enlargement, depression etc. These side effects usually go away after Finsteridren is stopped. These side effects are not permanent and will subside when Finsterserin treatment has been completed.
