Which Finasteride Works Best for Hair Loss?

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Finasteride is the ingredient commonly found in Propecia, a medication used for the treatment of hair loss in men suffering from male pattern baldness. Finasteride is not only used for hair loss. Hair loss prevention is actually the residual side effect of finasteride. The original use of this drug is for prostate enlargement treatment.
Finasteride has been sold under different names and each for a specific cause. Names include Proscar, Propecia, Fincar, Finpecia, Finax, Finast, Finara, Finalo, Prosteride, Gefina, and Finasterid IVAX. Propecia is a 1mg tablet used for hair loss prevention and recommended for hair restoration use by many hair transplant surgeons. It is also the only FDA approved drug for the treatment of hair loss.
Proscar is the original 5mg version of finasteride normally associated with prostate enlargement treatment use. As a cost saving technique, many people purchase 5mg Proscar and cut the tablets into 1.25mg tablets. 1.25mg is a safe dosage but 1mg is more than enough for the treatment of hair loss.
