Finasteride, sold under the brand names Proscar and Propecia among others, is a medication used mainly to treat an enlarged prostate or hair loss in men. It can also be used to treat excessive hair growth in women and as a part of hormone therapy for transgender women. It is taken by mouth.
Side effects are generally mild. Some men experience sexual dysfunction, depression, anxiety, or breast enlargement. It may also increase the risk of certain forms of prostate cancer. Finasteride is a 5α-reductase inhibitor, and therefore an antiandrogen. It works by decreasing the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by about 70%, including in the prostate gland and the scalp.
