Propecia is an androgen hormone inhibitor used to treatpattern in MEN only.The dose of Propecia Finasteride differs for every individual. Follow your doctors prescriptions or the directions that are mentioned on the label strictly. Below, here is the following information which includes only the average dose of finasteride. But if your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor allows you to do so:
For oral dosage form tablets: For treatment of prostatic hyperplasia BPH – Adults can consume 5 mg once a day. And For hair growth treatment t Adults can consume 1 mg once a day. But its better if you consult your doctor even on this prescription.You may know that – DHT is a hormone that forms on the scalp when testosterone and enzyme type II 5-a reductase react with each other. So, Propecia works effectively as it contains the active ingredient Finasteride, a type II 5-a reductase drug which inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body.The produced sex hormone (DHT) is a key cause in hair loss, which constricts the visible hair follicles and reduces the visibility of them. After buying Propecia (finasteride) and starting the treatment, the overall DHT levels stabilize and remain low enough such that the adverse effects of DHT on the follicles stop.
This results in the reversal process of the hair loss problem. In this way, Propecia is very effective medicine for the hair treatment.Propecia is generally known to be a very safe and recommended medicine for the treatment of male pattern hair loss.
