Alopecia areata, male pattern hair loss is common in most middle-aged men. Although this does not mean that cannot be treated. There are natural and chemical ways to treat this kind of hair loss. Commonly known, finasteride is a chemical treatment for the hair. There are plenty of benefits of this procedure to not only hair loss in men but also in women.


The finasteride treatment is mainly being used for the treatment of the hair loss that is caused due to the imbalance in the hormone called androgen, one of which is androgenic alopecia. Finasteride is a selective 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor and is mainly taken orally in a dosage of 1 mg once daily for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. The bioavailability after the oral intake of 1 mg ranges from 26% to 70% with an average of about 65%. It is not connected to food intake. The plasma concentration must be about 9.2 ng/ml on an average. The terminal half-life in men between the age of 18 and 60 years of age is normally about five to six hours and is eight hours in men who are older than 70 years of age. It is metabolized extensively in the liver by an enzyme subfamily cytochrome P450 3A4 and excreted in urine and faeces.

Finasteride has been tried in doses ranging from 0.2 mg to 5 mg, however, 1 mg per day is the optimal dose for the treatment alopecia areata. There is not much difference in the result of doses between 1 mg and 5 mg.
