Finasteride, a reductase inhibitor used to treat male pattern baldness, is the active component of Fortune Health Care’s oral medication Proscalpin. This medication has been designed to specifically target dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the main hormone linked to hair loss. Because it has received generally positive reviews, finasteride is popular among bodybuilders during a steroid cycle; at this time, DHT levels can rise above normal levels, increasing the risk of baldness.
Effects of Proscalpin
Dystrophy and progressive constriction take place as DHT accumulates in hair follicles, leading to hair loss and follicle death in the end. The enzyme 5-alpha-reductase is required for the production of DHT. Finasteride, a reductase inhibitor, prevents the synthesis of DHT in hair follicles. This successfully gets rid of the cause of baldness.
Effective ways to take Finasteride
The recommended daily dosage of Proscalpin is one tablet (5 mg). High dosages make side effects more likely without enhancing the effectiveness of therapeutic therapy. The recommended usage period for finasteride treatment is at least 12 weeks because it takes several months to replace thinning hair and show noticeable results.
Finasteride is not recommended for men with prostate issues, and nursing young mothers should not take the medication. Because it is currently unknown whether the active ingredient passes into breast milk, the medication is not administered during breastfeeding.
