Most men who suffer from male pattern's hair loss are hypersensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone, which can damage hair follicles and cause hair loss. Prescription hair loss treatment reduces the levels of this hormone in the body in order to reverse balding. It reduces hair loss or causes re-growth in 9 out of 10 men.
Prescription strength hair loss treatment reduces the level of this particular hormone. Propecia and finasteride work in the same way but generic finasteride is available at a lower cost.
You need to take one tablet of finasteride every day, with or without food. Most men find that their hair loss improves after three to six months of treatment.
