Finasteride effects on 5α-reductase ferment. This ferment turns testosterone into a more androgen-active dihydrotestosterone (DHT) form. Finasteride is a 5α-reductase inhibitor, in particular, type II and III, and therefore an antiandrogen. It decreases the production of dihydrotestosterone, including in the prostate gland and the scalp. Inhibits the effect of dihydrotestosterone on the development of prostate adenoma. Finasteride decreases the enlargement of the gland, improves urinary flow, and reduces symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy. It may take several months of treatment to reduce the clinical symptoms of the disease.

Mechanism of action

By inhibiting 5-reductase, finasteride prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Type II and III isoenzymes lead to a decrease in serum DHT levels by about 65-70%, and in the prostate, DHT levels decrease up to 85-90%, where the Type II isoenzyme presented mostly. Unlike triple inhibitors of all three 5a-reductase isoenzymes, such as dutasteride, which can reduce whole-body DHT levels by more than 99%, finasteride does not completely inhibit DHT production because it lacks a significant inhibitory effect on the 5a-reductase type I isoenzyme.

By blocking the production of DHT, finasteride reduces androgen activity in the scalp. In the prostate, inhibition of 5a-reductase reduces prostate volume, and decreases prostatic hyperplasia, which improves and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.

Inhibition of 5-reductase also reduces the weight of the epididymis and reduces the motility and normal morphology of spermatozoa in the epididymis. Officially it is currently approved for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) and hair loss. Consider the scope of the drug in detail.

Purposes of use 

Prostate enlargement

Doctors use finasteride to treat prostate hypertrophy. Finasteride may improve symptoms associated with such as decreased and painful urine flow. It provides better symptomatic treatment than alpha-1 blockers such as tamsulosin, but symptom relief comes slower (treatment with finasteride may take six months or more to determine the therapeutic outcome). In long-term studies, finasteride, but not alpha-1 inhibitors, reduced the risk of acute urinary retention (-57% at 4 years) and the need for surgery (-54% at 4 years). When you stop taking the drug, changes in the prostate are restored within 6-8 months.

Hair loss

Finasteride is used to treat hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) in men only. The treatment can not fully restore the hair, but it slows down further hair loss and provides about 30% improvement in hair loss after six months of treatment, but it is effective only as long as the drug is taken. Donald Trump's personal doctor says Trump is taking finasteride to promote hair growth.

Excessive hair growth
