What is Fincar 5mg
- It is a pharmaceutical medication that is used by men with male pattern baldness who wish to slow down and stop the process of losing hair and perhaps even grow new hair. Fincar is also used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate)
It is a new brand for the drug called finasteride, which is most popular in the west under the name Propecia. It is a much cheaper alternative that is just as good as Propecia.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Fincar is a type II 5-alpha reductase inhibitor drug which means that it provides the benefits by inhibiting the 5-alpha reductase from doing its work. This enzyme is necessary for the testosterone to be converted into dihydrotestosterone which can have detrimental effects in some men and cause their hair to fall out. With the said enzyme being inhibited, this conversion does not take place and the hair follicles are enabled to function properly and without problems.
Looking after your medicine
You are advised to keep your Fincar tablets in a cool, dark and dry place out of reach of any children.
How to take Generic Propecia 5mg - Fincar

Fincar comes in 5 mg tablets and one of these is taken every day.
