Frequently Asked Questions
For men suffering with hair loss, Finasteride 1mg is one of the most effective treatments available. However many men are still hesitant to use it, concerned about possible side effects. Let’s break down the Finasteride facts and find out if you should be worried about experiencing Finasteride 1mg side effects.
When men start experiencing Male Pattern Baldness, they often unsure if there is any medication available to help them. Thankfully, Finasteride 1mg is available for prescription and when taken properly is known to slow the progression of hair loss or even improve hair growth. So, how exactly does it work?
Finasteride 1mg works by reducing a hormone in the body known as Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. It’s believed DHT is responsible for Male Pattern Baldness, causing hair follicles to shrink until eventually they no longer produce hair. By lowering the levels of DHT in the body, Finasteride 1mg can counter this process.
DHT doesn’t just affect your hair, though. It’s responsible for other male characteristics, so lowering the levels of DHT in your body can have knock on effects in other areas of your health.
Some of the possible Finasteride 1mg side effects include:
- Lowered libido
- Lowered mood
- Difficulty ejaculating
- Difficulty maintaining erection
For many men, the prospect of these side effects can put them off trying Finasteride. But it’s important to note these Finasteride 1mg side effects are more common at higher doses. Men looking to treat their Male Pattern Baldness will only be taking 1mg of Finasteride. That’s usually not enough to cause these kind of side effects.
For example, men experiencing Benign Prostate Enlargement (BPE) may be prescribed up to 5mg of Finasteride. On this dosage, around 1 in 10 men may experience the side effects listed. For men only taking 1mg of Finasteride, these side effects are considered uncommon (only around 1 in 100 men will experience them).
If you do experience signs of an allergic reaction to Finasteride 1mg, such as swelling of the lips, face or throat and breathing difficulties, stop taking the medication immediately and seek medical help.
Finasteride 1mg side effects should go away once you stop taking the drug. There have been claims that some men have continued to experience side effects after discontinuing the medication – in truth, it is overwhelmingly unlikely that men taking Finasteride 1mg for hair loss will experience any side effects after stopping the medication.
If you find your Male Pattern Baldness affecting your quality of life, you may want to try taking Finasteride 1mg. Over time, a consistent treatment of Finasteride 1mg really can slow hair loss. It’s one of the most commonly prescribed hair loss medications for a reason – it’s effective with a good safety profile. Finasteride side effects are uncommon at the low dosage taken for hair loss.
