What is Generic Propecia 1mg - Finalo
Finalo is a prescription medication which is used in treating male pattern baldness. It is the best treatment for this condition because it affects the underlying process that causes male pattern baldness in the first place.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Finalo is a type II 5̴�-reductase inhibitor drug which means that its main mechanism of action is inhibiting the type II 5 alpha reductase. This enzyme is key for the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone which affects the hair follicles negatively and causes the hair loss. With the reduction in levels of DHT, hair loss is first slowed down as follicles are kept healthy and after some time, hair regrowth can be observed as well.
Looking after your medicine
Finalo needs to be kept in a dry, dark and cool place. It should be kept away from children and out of their reach.
How to take Generic Propecia 1mg - Finalo
Finalo needs to be taken with a full glass of water. It should be taken regularly as this increases its effectiveness and ensures that the drug is continuously working for you. Your physician may schedule various tests to make sure Finalo works well and your body is tolerating the drug. Ensure that you do these tests and checkups.
The usual Finalo dosage is 1 mg per day. If your physician prescribes you with a different dosage, you should take the prescribed one. Never make changes to your dosage without discussing this with your doctor.
You must never take too large a dose of Finalo and if you do, make sure that you contact emergency medical services. An overdose on this drug is not fatal.
In case you miss one of your Finalo doses, take it as soon as you do remember. If your skipped dose is close to the next scheduled one, skip it and continue with the scheduled treatment.
Warnings and Precautions
Finalo may increase the chances of developing prostatic cancer. Make sure that Finalo tablets are not handled by pregnant women. Finasteride, the active ingredient in Finalo can be absorbed through skin and then pass into blood and into the fetus. In male fetuses, this can cause developmental problems.
Possible Side Effects
Finalo only causes milder side effects in a small percentage of users. These adverse effects may include: skin rash, changes to sex drive, runny nose, abnormal ejaculations, headaches, swelling in feet and/or hands, fainting feeling, swelling and/or tenderness in breasts, weakness and dizziness.
Treating hair loss
Finalo is one of the few pharmaceutical drugs approved for use in treatment of hair loss and it is by far the most effective one. It is a drug that addresses the underlying cause of male pattern baldness and thus works from the inside, getting to the root of the problem. It is also relatively safe and causes very few side effects, if any.
When should it not be used
Finalo should not be used in case you are allergic to finasteride and/or dutasteride, a drug similar to finasteride. You should also be careful if you have had any of these: stricture of urethra, liver disease, bladder muscle disorder, prostatic cancer or if you are unable to urinate properly.
How long should you take it
For the first effects to be noticed, you will most likely need to take Finalo for at least 3 months. More pronounced results appear later but if you experience no effects of Finalo after 12 months, it will not work for you and you may discontinue your treatment.
