How Finasteride Works
Finasteride works by reducing the DHT, the main cause of hair loss, by inhibiting the formation of DHT in your scalp. DHT is a substance in the body that can shrink the hair follicles until it no longer produces visible hair. The medication starts to work within three months of beginning the treatment. It works by preventing further hair loss and promoting new hair growth.
Generic Propecia vs Brand Propecia
When comparing the brand propecia to the generic Propecia there are no chemical or therapeutic differences. The chemical (Finasteride) is the exact same in both, and thus creates the exact same results and metabolizes the same way inside of the body. Doctors were actually prescribing generic Finsteride before Merk had patented the brand. The only difference in the generic Propecia is that it will not be manufactured by Merk, but will be made by a generic manufacturer; we primarily use Cipla as our generic manufacturer. We currently have the brand that comes from Turkey manufactured by Merck and the generic comes from India. The generic may come under the alternate name finpecia or finasteride.
Finasteride Possible side effects
Most men do react well to Finasteride treatment. Be sure to contact your doctor if you experience any physical changes to your body. Side effects may include:
• Allergic reaction, such as swelling of the face or lips, rash, itching and hives.
Finasteride should only be taken by men. It has not been approved for women or children. Be sure to discuss all of the advantages and disadvantages of taking Propecia before deciding if Propecia is right for you.
The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
