Finasteride is used in the treatment of hair loss. It treats early forms of male pattern hair loss (also known as androgenetic alopecia).
Finasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It blocks the body’s production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth, thereby reversing the balding process and preventing further hair loss.
