It contains the ingredient Finasteride that works by decreasing the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. This helps to prevent hair loss and increase the rate of hair regrowth in men. It also helps to decrease the size of the prostate. This medicine is recommended to be taken once daily. It can be taken with or without food. The effects of this medicine can be experienced within the first 3-4 months. However, the full effects of the drug can be experienced in 6-9 months. Follow your doctor’s prescription carefully to achieve the desired results.

How Finax 1 mg Works

It falls under the class of drugs known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. It contains the ingredient Finasteride that blocks the action of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase and aids hair regrowth. The enzyme 5-alpha reductase converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The hormone DHT binds with the receptors of the hair follicles and weakens them over time. This disturbs the natural growth cycle of hair, thereby causing hair follicles to shrink. This leads to hair loss (which further leads to baldness) and an enlarged prostate. Finax 1 mg stops the action of 5-alpha reductase and decreases the amount of DHT in the body. This leads to increased hair regrowth and a decreased prostate size.
