Get to know Finasteride
Finasteride is a medicine that is used to treat hair loss in men. 

Finasteride is the same as Propecia. Finasteride is the generic version whilst Propecia is branded. They both contain the same active ingredient, which is called finasteride. This means that they both work in exactly the same way. But, Finasteride is cheaper than Propecia. 

Finasteride is proven to help hair to grow and stops hair loss in men aged 18-41 years old, though men older than 41 can also try Finasteride. 

Finasteride works by stopping the body from producing a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is made from testosterone. It’s thought that having too much DHT is linked to hair loss. 

To start seeing results, you need to take Finasteride regularly for at least 3 months. You need to take Finasteride long term. If you stop taking Finasteride, you will start getting hair loss again within 12 months. 
Finasteride is safe as long as you take it exactly as your doctor tells you, though you might experience some side effects (see below). It shouldn’t be taken, or handled, by women or children and if your partner is pregnant or you are planning to have a baby with your partner you should talk to your doctor. 

Finasteride can affect other medicines you may be taking, and other medicines can affect how finasteride works in your body. So, it’s important to tell your doctor if you’re taking any other medication before you start taking Finasteride. Some common medicines and substances that could interact with finasteride are: 

Alcohol – Finasteride and alcohol don’t affect each other. So, you can drink alcohol in moderation while you’re taking Finasteride. 

Tamsulosin – both Finasteride and Tamsulosin can be used to treat an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), sometimes in combination. If you’re taking Tamsulosin for an enlarged prostate, you can take Finasteride at the same time for hair loss. Though it is important to tell your doctor you’re taking finasteride if you ever have a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test as taking finasteride can affect the result. 

Viagra or Sildenafil – you may be taking Viagra or Sildenafil if you have symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED). One of the potential side effects of Finasteride is ED symptoms. So, your doctor might need to adjust the dose of Viagra or Sildenafil if Finasteride starts to affect your ED symptoms. 

Lactose – Finasteride contains an ingredient called lactose monohydrate. You should talk with a doctor before taking Finasteride if you have lactose intolerance or allergy. 

It’s always important to talk to a doctor before starting finasteride so that they can make sure there aren’t any other underlying causes for your hair loss, tell you about any alternative treatments and to check that finasteride would be safe for you to take based on your medical history and any medications you take.
Finasteride has an overall rating of 4.1 out of 5 on Trustpilot and 4.9 out of 10 on Drugs.com

On Trustpilot, reviewers said: 

“So far [I have] taken this product for a week now with no side effects at all. I have also noticed less hair falling out when I've had a shower. I will keep using them longer and will be reordering. [I] need to give it more time.”

“I saw minor changes but a friend of mine has [experienced] significant positive changes.”

Finasteride didn’t get the highest rating compared to other hair loss treatments. Minoxidil, also known as Regaine, scored 6.1 out of 10 on Drugs.com. 

You can buy Finasteride tablets online. You should only buy Finasteride from reputable and licensed sources, as medicines sold through other websites could be ineffective and dangerous. You can buy Finasteride tablets safely through our Online Doctor service. Just follow these steps:
  • fill in a questionnaire about your hair loss and general health. This should only take a few minutes to complete 
  • choose Finasteride as the treatment that you’d like to buy
  • a doctor will review your questionnaire to see if Finasteride is suitable and safe for you to take
  • your Finasteride tablets will be sent to you discretely by post to your preferred address. Or, you can pick it up from your local Superdrug
You can also get a prescription for Finasteride. To get a prescription, you should make a face-to-face appointment with a doctor. In your appointment, your doctor will discuss your hair loss as well as your general health. If you and your doctor agree that Finasteride is the best treatment option for you, they will give you a prescription which you can redeem at any pharmacy. This is not available for free on the NHS for male pattern hair loss and you’d have to pay for a private prescription. 

You should always take Finasteride exactly as your doctor or pharmacist tells you. Your box of Finasteride will always come with an information leaflet, which includes instructions on how to take Finasteride safely. 

Finasteride comes as tablets in a blister pack. You should swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water. Don’t break the tablets or chew them. 

You should take one Finasteride tablet a day, preferably at around the same time each day. You can take Finasteride with or without food. 

The dose for hair loss treatment is 1mg per day. 
Side effects with finasteride are uncommon. The most common potential side effects of Finasteride which effect between 1 in 100 to 1 in 1000 men are:

  • trouble getting or keeping an erection (erectile dysfunction) 
  • low sex drive (libido) 
  • changes in how you ejaculate
  • Low mood or depression 

Less common side effects of Finasteride are: 

  • changes to the breast such as soreness or swelling
  • testicular pain
  • palpitations
  • skin reactions 
  • changes to your liver blood tests

Any changes to your libido, erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction can persist even after stopping finasteride. If you notice any changes to your nipples or breast tissue you should see a doctor as finasteride does have the potential to cause male breast cancer. If you have a change in your mood or testicular pain you should stop taking finasteride and see your doctor for review. 

Finasteride can affect the level of PSA in your blood. PSA is a protein produced normally in your prostate, and is screened for when testing for prostate cancer. So, you should tell your doctor that you are taking Finasteride if you are having tests for prostate cancer so they can make an accurate diagnosis. 

If you experience: 

  • shortness of breath or a wheeze
  • feeling dizzy or collapsing 
  • hives that cover your body 
  • swelling of the tongue, lips, and face

You may be having an allergic reaction to Finasteride. Call 999 or get someone to take you to your nearest Accident & Emergency department straight away and do not take any more finasteride.. 

For a full list of side effects always check the patient information leaflet before starting finasteride.

    One month in and no signs of any hair growing back. I’ve lost my sex drive massively and on some occasions struggle to get an erection. I’m going to purchase another 3 months worth of medication and if there is still no signs of improvement, I will no long use.

    The product is actually well worth the risk of the sexual side effects and the money. I have only been on my prescription for 8 days which from my online research states you won't see anything this early but in my case my hair is actually coming back in some places (yes they are dark coloured hairs and not peach fuzz) it's also worth noting my hair on the top that was once blonde thin and lifeless has also now changed back to dark brown and looks fuller so I know m existing hair is becoming stronger again.

    So far taken this product for a week now with no side effects at all. I have also noticed less hair falling out when I've had a shower. I will keep using them longer and will be reordering. Need to give it more time.
