Can agents with finasteride help against hair loss?

Against hair loss

Hair loss is one of the most com­mon prob­lems world­wide. One third of the pop­u­la­tion is affect­ed. Everyone los­es 100 hair lev­els every day. It is a nat­ur­al phe­nom­e­non; There can be many caus­es, includ­ing min­er­al defi­cien­cy, med­ica­tion, stress, pol­lu­tion and genet­ics. There are var­i­ous caus­es of hair loss. One rea­son is that as you get old­er, your hair los­es its vol­ume and thick­ness. In some cas­es, thin­ning hair is asso­ci­at­ed with diet, nutri­ent defi­cien­cy or hered­i­tary hair loss.

In most cas­es, thin­ning the hair is not asso­ci­at­ed with gen­er­al health con­cerns.

Many peo­ple hurt it in self-esteem and make them throw mon­ey at almost any­thing to see their hair grow back. Many peo­ple think of ill­ness in hair loss. It is the case that every­one has hair loss with age. It hap­pens to every­one in the course of their lives, it’s just a ques­tion, at what age? and how fast it hap­pens!

Finasteride is used as a drug in star­tling pro­sta­t­ic hyper­pla­sia (BPH) and in andro­genic hair loss (andro­ge­net­ic alope­cia, AGA). Finasteride is sub­ject to med­ical pre­scrip­tion in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The con­tro­ver­sial active ingre­di­ent is offered at the dose of 5 mg against incip­i­at­ing pro­sta­t­ic hyper­pla­sia and as tablets with andro­gen-relat­ed hair loss.

Eco-Test has also dealt with the top­ic of hair loss and can “not leave a good hair” on the major­i­ty of prod­ucts. Of the med­i­c­i­nal prod­ucts, only the finas­teride-con­tain­ing, only for use in men, cut off pre­scrip­tion prepa­ra­tions with “good”. In the opin­ion of Öko-Test, how­ev­er, the ben­e­fit doc­u­ments of all non-med­i­c­i­nal prod­ucts were not suf­fi­cient to jus­ti­fy an appli­ca­tion in the event of hair loss.

Does finasteride work against hair loss?

According to the cur­rent state of knowl­edge of the research, cer­tain hair fol­li­cles react to DHT with the reduc­tion of the ana­gen phase (growth phase). This sen­si­tiv­i­ty of hair fol­li­cles is hered­i­tat. Finasteride inhibits the con­ver­sion of testos­terone into DHT. The hair fol­li­cles can then react with an exten­sion of the ana­gen phase. However, if the hair fol­li­cle is hard­ly active any­more, usu­al­ly noth­ing can be achieved. Finasteride must be tak­en as long as the man wants to keep his hair. As a result, finas­teride post­pones the onset of the man’s andro­ge­net­ic hair loss into lat­er years. If the treat­ment is inter­rupt­ed, the DHT lev­el in the blood increas­es and the regrown hair fol­li­cles can fail again. First suc­cess­es can only be observed from a dura­tion of 3–6 months.

Serious Side Effects of Finasteride

Adverse reac­tions of finas­teride at low dos­es of 1 mg per day occa­sion­al­ly, but at high­er dos­es of 5 mg per day, decreased libido and poten­cy dis­or­ders (erec­tile dys­func­tion, decreased ejac­u­late vol­ume) often occurred. These do not always dis­ap­pear com­plete­ly after the end of ther­a­py. Occasionally, patients report the per­sis­tence of erec­tile dys­func­tion after dis­con­tin­u­a­tion of finas­teride ther­a­py. Testicular pain and infer­til­i­ty, occa­sion­al­ly depres­sive moods, were also report­ed.

20 years after the approval of the hair growth agent, the man­u­fac­tur­ers react­ed. In a so-called red hand let­ter last sum­mer, the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies acknowl­edged pos­si­ble prob­lems with finas­teride. For exam­ple: sex­u­al dis­or­ders, depres­sion, sui­ci­dal thoughts or anx­i­ety. The sex­u­al prob­lems, the man­u­fac­tur­ers admit, could even “per­sist for more than ten years even after the ther­a­py has stopped”.

A study pub­lished in 2009 by the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) found an increased inci­dence of breast can­cer. The pos­si­ble asso­ci­a­tion of breast can­cer with the intake of finas­teride was not sig­nif­i­cant, but accord­ing to the MHRA, it can­not be exclud­ed.

Do not take finas­teride in women and per­sons under 18 years of age as well as patients with fre­quent uri­nary emp­ty­ing. Finasteride ingest­ed dur­ing preg­nan­cy leads to mal­for­ma­tions of the exter­nal sex organs of male fetus­es. Therefore, for women who are preg­nant or pos­si­bly preg­nant, avoid any con­tact with this sub­stance.

“I haven’t had a life since,” Martin says. He used a hair growth agent in his ear­ly 20s. The pill was sup­posed to stop the begin­ning of bald­ness, but he did not expect the severe side effects. “Complete lack of dri­ve. It start­ed with states of exhaus­tion and drift­ed into depres­sion,” says Martin, who does not want to pub­lish his real name out of shame. Later, artic­u­la­tion dis­or­ders, mem­o­ry and sex­u­al prob­lems were added. “I did­n’t know that before.”

Statistically, more men than women suf­fer from hair loss. Those affect­ed often lose a great deal of qual­i­ty of life at the same time. More than half of men over the age of 50 suf­fer from hered­i­tary hair loss, and one in three show symp­toms at a young age. A rumour spread among bald wear­ers sees the blame for this in the male sex hor­mone testos­terone. In fact, how­ev­er, Sean Connery 8ok, who may ;)), Heiner Lauterbach or André Agassi have no more testos­terone in the body than their hairy com­rades. Because it is not the sex hor­mone itself, but an inher­it­ed sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the hair root that costs it the hair splen­dor. The hair roots are genet­i­cal­ly pol­ished in such a way that the hair would fail ear­ly even with an aver­age hor­mone lev­el.

Sneaky change at the hair roots

Testosterone, or more pre­cise­ly its degra­da­tion prod­uct dihy­drotestos­terone (DHT), acts on sen­si­tive hair roots as a trig­ger for a creep­ing change: the root grad­u­al­ly shrinks to a frac­tion of its orig­i­nal size, instead of a nor­mal head hair, it now forms a soft, pale fluff yeast hair. Finally, this hair also fails — what remains is a bald spot.

In the man, this degen­er­a­tion of the hair roots begins lat­er­al­ly at the front hair­line (secret cor­ners) and cen­tral­ly at the upper back of the head. At the lat­est, when both bald­strokes merge into each oth­er, any attempt to con­ceal them becomes use­less. As a con­so­la­tion, even with com­plete bald­ness, a nar­row hair wreath remains at the back of the head. Women who suf­fer less from hered­i­tary hair loss show a dif­fer­ent pat­tern: they start clear­ing in the apex region, while the front hair­line has a hem sev­er­al cen­time­tres wide.


Hair loss is a very com­mon prob­lem that not only men suf­fer from. You don’t have to accept the loss of your hair eas­i­ly. By treat­ing with the appro­pri­ate means, you can do some­thing about hair loss at an ear­ly stage. You can specif­i­cal­ly pre­vent your hair loss or take spe­cif­ic sup­ple­ments to reduce the loss of your hair. However, due to the numer­ous side effects, prepa­ra­tions con­tain­ing finas­teride are only rec­om­mend­ed if tak­en by a doc­tor.
