What is Finasteride 1 mg?
Finasteride belongs to a group of medicines called 5-Alpha-reductase inhibitors. The active substance finasteride inhibits an enzyme that affects the hair follicles in the scalp. As a result, hair loss caused by hereditary baldness can be stopped. You can buy Finasteride 1mg online from pharmacies that work together with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Doctors prescribe finasteride 1 mg against androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary form of baldness which occurs mostly in men. This condition is caused by sensitization of the follicles (hair follicles) to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHA). Under the influence of this substance the hair follicles shrivel, causing first for the hair to get thinner, then fall out and not grow back. Finasteride inhibits the effect of dihydrotestosterone. This will stop the hair loss and hair can regrow on bald spots.
