How Finasteride Works
Finasteride 5mg is a drug primarily used in men who have and enlarged prostate and androgenic alopecia (hair loss). When treating an enlarged prostate, Finasteride helps improve urination, reduce the frequency of night urination, hesitation at the start of urination and increases urine flow. Your doctor may have prescribed Finasteride for male pattern hair loss. The drug works by lowering an enzyme in the body that converts testosterone into DHT. By preventing DHT levels to rise in the body, Finasteride stimulates hair growth and prevents further hair loss. It is important to take Finasteride exactly as prescribed.
Generic Proscar vs Brand Proscar
There are very little differences between brand and generic Proscar; both medications contain the medical ingredient Finasteride. Brand Finasteride is primarily marketed by Merk as Proscar in North America but can go by different brand names in other parts of the world. Your order of Proscar may have an alternate name depending on its country of origin. Generic Proscar or Finasteride is manufactured outside of a Merk facility; this is the biggest difference between Proscar and Finasteride. We currently have the brand that comes from Turkey and the generic from Uk, it may come from other countries around the world. Generic Finasteride and Proscar are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use.
Finasteride Possible side effects
Some men may experience side effects while taking Finasteride. Consult with your doctor if any of the following side effects become bothersome or severe. Keep in mind that most of these side effects are manageable and will go away on their own over time.

Before you begin to take Finasteride, tell your doctor about any medical conditions and medications you are currently taking. Finasteride is not for everyone; individuals with reduced kidney and liver function should take Finasteride cautiously and be monitored by their physician. Finasteride is not to be taken immediately after surgery of the prostate. Women who are pregnant must not use or come in contact with Finasteride as it can be absorbed through the skin causing sever genital abnormalities in male babies.
