However, this drug cannot be used to treat people who have thinning hair at the temples. Moreover, it cannot be used by women and children.

Before you start taking Finpecia, the correct dosage should be determined by your doctor. The usual dosage for the treatment of baldness is 1 mg of Finpecia per day. In most cases, the results are seen only after 3 months of treatment. However, if you stop taking this medicine, all the progress that you’ve made over the past 9 to 12 months will be lost.
Patients who suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia are usually prescribed 5 mg of Finasteride per day.

Finpecia (finasteride) may be the cause of a number of side effects which include inability to maintain an erection, problems with ejaculation, decreased sexual desire, depression, and pain in the testicles. These side effects are quite common and should only be addressed if they are persistent or very severe.
