The Two Types of Finasteride Dosage

March 2, 2016

Finasteride is a drug that was originally developed to help men fight against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is basically an abnormal enlargement of the prostate.  Although the condition is not necessarily malignant, it does however create discomfort to those who have the disorder.  The original finasteride dosage was 5mg.  This finasteride dosage was given to participants during the testing of the drug.  Those who took part in the clinical testing reported having encountered a side effect.  However, instead of a negative type of consequences from using the 5mg finasteride dosage given to them, they reported of one that is more positive than negative.  The side effect certain participants got from using the 5mg finasteride dosage was the improvement in the hair loss status of those who had male pattern baldness.

The cure for hair loss has always been beyond reach.  After all, there is really no cure for this particular condition, but simply more of like a treatment.  In treating hair loss, a 1mg finasteride dosage is used instead of the 5mg finasteride dosage.  The creators of the drug took notice of the reports given during the drug’s testing phase which is why they did their research not only to learn what is in their drug that contributes to such hair loss treatment, but also to determine the proper finasteride dosage needed for treating this particular condition.
