What Is Propecia Generic?

Propecia generic or Finasteride is one of the best leading solutions for hair loss in men. Propecia generic is also approved from the Food and Drug Administration of U.S as a therapy for male pattern baldness and for benign prostatic hyperplasia. It is very important that propecia generic should be used under a valid medical prescription and by men only.

The specific action of Propecia generic deals with an inhibition. Propecia generic is known as a strong 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It blocks and inhibits the action of enzyme 5-alpha reductase. The enzyme 5-alpha reductase owns the responsibility for converting the hormone testosterone into its active form dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

DHT is a special androgen or hormone that enhances the male characteristics in men. Also DHT is responsible for generating androgenic alopecia or hair loss in males. DHT controls the function of prostate gland enlargement, formation of acne and hair growth in ears and nose in men.

Propecia generic prevents the formation of DHT by acting like an inhibitor on enzyme 5-alpha reductase. Therefore Propecia generic is a valuable controlling therapy on above mentioned specific conditions.

Propecia Generic for androgenic alopecia

Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia is mainly caused by the sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT. Under the action of DHT these hair follicles get miniaturized. Hair follicles contain a special area called ‘dermal papilla’. It is responsible for the hair growth. This dermal papilla contains a large amount of receptors for androgens like DHT. DHT acts on these and stops further hair growth. The production of DHT in an individual depends on his genes.

Thus as Propecia generic acts as an inhibitor to create DHT, Propecia generic prevents further hair loss.

However an individual with a complete bald head can’t regain his full hair using Propecia generic therapy.

Propecia Generic for Prostate Enlargement

Propecia generic is also used as a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate enlargement in men. During this condition the prostate gland which is positioned closer to the bladder get enlarged. As mentioned earlier the high level of androgen DHT is partially responsible for BPH.

As propecia generic acts as an inhibitor on the formation of DHT, propecia generic is an effective treatment for BPH.

Propecia generic can be used to shrink the prostate gland. Propecia generic is also used to prevent further enlargements. But propecia generic cannot cure BPH. Instead of that Propecia generic can only control the enlargement.
