Finasteride is effective in treating male pattern hair loss. However, it doesn’t work for everyone as everyone’s reaction to a medication is unique.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), almost 9 in 10 men who took finasteride for 12 months reported a lower incidence of hair loss as compared to a control group who took a placebo (4 in 10).
If finasteride doesn’t work for you, it may be because:
You do not take finasteride daily. (Continued daily use is required to sustain the benefit.)
You have stopped taking it before the full effect has come in. (Continued daily use for at least 12 months is required to assess the full benefit.)
You do not react to the medication
Our doctors may modify your treatment plan, depending on your reaction to the medication and any side effects.
