An alternative purchasing route would be going to see your physician to be evaluated for this medication. If they see you’re a good fit, you can buy this medication at a pharmacy with a prescription.

What is finasteride?

Finasteride is a prescription oral medication that is used to treat male pattern baldness. You might also recognize its other names, Proscar and Propecia.

There are only two hair loss medications that are approved by the FDA, and finasteride is one of them.

This medication primarily comes in an oral tablet, but here at Strut Health, we’ve also formulated a topical Finasteride hair loss gel (and it’s pretty awesome).

Where to buy finasteride?

You can buy finasteride from most pharmacies, but you will need a prescription to purchase finasteride. You cannot buy finasteride over the counter.

However, a simpler approach might be getting finasteride prescribed online after a 10 to 15-minute questionnaire-based telemedicine hair loss consultation.

Can finasteride really help male pattern baldness?

Yes, finasteride really works on male pattern baldness. Mostly, finasteride works to stop or slow the process of balding to help you maintain the hair you have. It also can aid in the regrowth of hair for some.

Simply taking a pill for hair loss sounds too good to be true, right? Well, this treatment is simple but proven very effective.

Finasteride has been approved as a hair loss treatment since 1992, so it’s been around the block.

In this 2003 review, researchers analyzed multiple hair loss studies that used finasteride as a hair loss treatment for crown balding and receding hairline in men. The review summarized that across these studies, finasteride was successful at preventing further hair loss of 83% of the participants treated with finasteride.83%? Those are some pretty good odds.

How does finasteride work?

Male pattern baldness, also called androgenic alopecia, is largely due to an overabundance of the hormone called DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone.

DHT can cause the hair follicles to shrink over a period of time, leading to finer, shorter hairs, that may eventually stop growing altogether.

Testosterone is a perfectly healthy hormone in men (and small amounts in women) but hair loss can become an issue when testosterone is converted into too much DHT.

This is where finasteride comes in. Finasteride blocks the conversion process of testosterone into follicle-wrecking DHT.
