This is a medication that is administered to men who are suffering with an enlargement of the prostate. Where it is successful, it can relieve the symptoms of finding it difficult to urinate, of being able to completely empty the bladder, and of needing to urinate frequently. It is an oral medication that is only available to people via a prescription that has been written by a qualified doctor.
However, more recently, some men have started to begin using finasteride in order to treat male pattern baldness. For hair loss, this medication can only be accessed via a private prescription. As a result, you will need to pay for the medication – this is because as a hair loss treatment, it is not currently available via the National Health Service (NHS). For those men looking to purchase finasteride, Numan has the solution via the link.
It is not recommended that women take finasteride. Only in extremely rare cases would it ever likely be administered to a female.
The finasteride oral medication needs to be taken on a daily basis, each and every day (1 x tablet). One of the main side effects that men are likely to experience from using it is a complete loss of sexual interest and even a difficulty in obtaining and maintaining a strong erection. It also has the effect of impacting on the blood tests that are done to identify prostate cancer (PSA testing).
If finasteride gets into a man’s semen then it does have the potential to cause serious harm to an unborn fetus. For this reason, it is vitaly important that any man who is taking the medication and having sex, wears a condom in order to prevent their partner from being inpregnated. Any woman who intends to get pregnant or who is pregnant should never come into contact with a broken or crushed finasteride tablet as the active ingredients are able to go through the skin and go on to cause harm to any baby that is inside the womb.
Finasteride can be taken either without or with food and there is no requirement to take it at a specific time of day. All you need to do is be consistent so that you take the oral medication at roughly the same time each and every day. The tablets should be swallowed with a glass of tap water and should never ever be broken up or crushed into a powder form.
When used to combat hair loss, the dose that should be taken is 1mg, once a day. In most instances, you will be required to take finasteride for quite a significant amount of time, such as several months or even years.
If you ever forget to take the oral medication, then you should take it as soon as possible, providing that it is still within six hours of when you should have taken it. Where it is more than six hours, you should miss the dose that day and carry on the next day as normal.
