Finasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This makes Finestridine the ideal drug to add to your AAS cycle in order to treat and prevent hair loss and the enlargement of the prostate gland which are side effects of the conversion of Testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. Unfortunately, most Anabolic Androgenic Steroids are converted to DHT causing high levels of Dihydrotestosterone in the blood. The high concentrations of DHT in the body damages the hair follicles resulting in hair loss.
This is why Testosterone and other Anabolic Androgenic Steroids are associated with male pattern baldness. By inhibiting the conversion of Testosterone, Finasteride can even save your hair during tough cycles. Taking Androgenic Anabolic Steroids and Aging can lead to enlargement of the prostate. The use of Finasteride helps to reduce the size of the prostate.
Long-term use of Finasteride makes the scalp denser such that there won’t need to restore it with other expensive procedures. Most famous athletes use Finasteride in order to hide doping admission.
Finasteride is a synthesized 4-azasteroid and chemically similar to testosterone and acts as a competitive and specific type 5 -reductase inhibitor type II, an intracellular enzyme that transforms testosterone into a more potent androgen, 5α- dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride causes a rapid decrease in serum DHT, reaching significant elimination in 24 hours of dosing.
Hair follicles contain 5-alpha-reductase type II. Finasteride inhibits the process responsible for reducing the size of the scalp follicles, which can lead to the reversibility of the alopecia process.
Clinical trials in men with mild/moderate hair loss from vertex and/or frontal/central have demonstrated that: treatment with finasteride for 5 years reduced androgenic alopecia, and generated hair growth at 6 months (the shortest estimated duration); maximum efficacy was observed after a 2-year treatment.
They rarely meet, usually they are poorly expressed and reversible. It is possible to decrease the potency and libido, reduce ejaculate volume, swelling and breast enlargement, rarely – hypersensitivity reactions (edema of the lips, rash). The frequency of sexual disturbances decreases during treatment.
Dosage of 1 mg once a day with or without food for 3-6 months before any difference becomes apparent. There is no evidence that higher doses of finasteride have greater efficacy. The effectiveness and duration should always be assessed by your doctor. Generally, continuous treatment is required for 3-6 months before the hair loss process stabilizes. Continuous treatment is recommended to achieve the desired result. If treatment is discontinued, beneficial effects begin to disappear after 6 months and return to baseline after 9-12 months.
