Finasteride 5mg (Fenered 5mg) treats male pattern hair loss by blocking the body's production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth. It is a treatment of male pattern hair loss used to treat the symptoms of baldness in men with mild to moderate hair loss on the top of the head and the front of the mid-scalp area. Finasteride 5mg Tablets increases hair growth, improves hair re-growth, and slows down hair loss. It works only on scalp hair and does not affect hair on other parts of the body. If the treatment is stopped, all the gains from prior use will be lost. However, these Hair Loss Medication Pills are not indicated for use in women or children.
