is a drug that is primarily sold in India whereas other popular names for the generic Finasteride
are Proscar, Propecia
etc. This drug is designed to aid and help men experiencing male pattern hair loss. The scientific for men losing their hair is alopecia in which their hair line recedes gradually turning them bald in sections. It is necessary to understand this condition and identify the signs and symptoms before its too late and cure become difficult. Daily every one of us loses some hair, and we think it’s a normal process. But when you start to lose your hair more frequently in a large volume you may not identify or understand the cause of it. Especially in men if this is the case then it may be a good sign of male pattern baldness sinking in. There are signs that will help to identify MPB and take precautions before the bald spot develops and you lose your charm. On an average losing 50 to 150 strands every day is absolutely normal. Beyond that it’s an indication to look into the matter. The hair growth slows down and hair falls of at around 2 to 3 inches of length whereas normal hair strands will grow to about 5 to 6 inches before it loosens up and naturally falls off. In MPB the hair strand will become thinner and the person will notice that their top scalp starts losing hair with forehead or crown at maximum.
Cause of MPB and Treatment
The prime reason for alopecia lies in the male hormone testosterone going awry. When there is an excess of Dihydrotestosterone it attaches itself to the hair follicle acting as a barrier to the path of nutrients and the various factors that develops the growth of hair. Gradually due to lack of proper nutrients the hair starts to thin and falls off early leading to baldness.
Many pharmaceutical companies have recognized this as a common problem in men and have come up with an active ingredient that has proved itself successful in treating this phenomenon. Finasteride is the generic drug that is readily available in pharmacy stores but it is best to take this medicine with a valid prescription. Finpecia belongs to the class of a type II 5 alpha reductase inhibitor. It is an enzyme that converts testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone which is not a favorable hormone for the hair follicle. Those men whose are genetically sensitive to this hormone may experience male pattern baldness at some point of their age. Finpecia [Finasteride] will block the enzyme that and there will be no formation of DHT in the person’s blood as well as scalp area. This will cause a reversal process and stop the falling of hair or balding. If the treatment of this medicine is stopped the process of hair falling may start again after few months as the body will go back to the tendency of producing DHT once again. This treatment can be taken intermittently after every few months to maintain a regular pace to allow hair growth and care.
