Finasteride tablets are made for the treatment of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) in MEN ONLY and should never be taken by Women. Women should never handle or crush Finasteride pills at any time if they are pregnant or considering pregnancy. Men who are 45 and older and have BPH (generous prostatic hyperplasia) should be aware of that their PSA levels will diminish by up to 50%.

USES: This medication is used to treat male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) at the crown and in the middle of the scalp. It should be used by adult men only. This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone (DHT). Decreasing the amount of DHT leads to increased hair regrowth and slower hair loss. Hair growth on other parts of the body is not affected by finasteride. Women and children should not use this medication. Finasteride is not approved for prevention of prostate cancer. It may slightly increase the risk of developing a very serious form of prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks.
HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking finasteride and each time you get a refill.
