Duration of finasteride in male pattern hair loss

LikeAnswersShare

Long-term use for up to five years has been shown to decrease the likelihood of developing further visible hair loss . If you are taking finasteride to treat male pattern hair loss, it may take at least 3 months before you see any improvement because hair loss and growth happen slowly over time. However, you should expect to see improvement during the first 12 months of your treatment.

Finasteride is safe for long term use It's long term use safety has been established in treatment of benign enlargement of prostate Therefore it can be used for long term for treatment of male pattern hair loss

To stop loss of hairs is a tedious procedure Use finasteride is recommended which is quite safe in long term hence you can use till you see stabilization
