INQUIRY
Finasteride is a basic drug to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatitis, a synthetic 4-nitrogen steroid hormone compound and a sex hormone drug.

It is used for benign prostatic hyperplasia, men's prostatic fat and other diseases. Finasteride is the only oral drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat male pattern baldness.

Finasteride can selectively inhibit 5α-reductase, changing the conversion process of testosterone into 5α dihydrotestosterone (DHT), decreasing androgen levels in prostate cells, and prostate-specific antigens in serum, decreasing prostate swelling, and increasing urine flow rate, thereby alleviating the symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia. It acts by selectively blocking androgen stimulation of the prostate, but affects sexual function very rarely. Meanwhile, due to blocking of testosterone conversion and reduced synthesis of dihydrotestosterone, it can reduce dihydrotestosterone levels in the serum and scalp hair follicles, recovering the function of previously inhibited hair follicles, promoting hair growth and preventing loss.

Uses:

Treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia and androgenetic alopecia.
