Information about the drug
This drug has been developed and used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (excessive prostate enlargement) and hair loss. The main principle of this drug action is blocking an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. This enzyme is responsible for the metabolism of testosterone in dihydrotestosterone, hormone that leads to the several undesirable side effects associated with its excess in the human’s body. Finasteride can improve symptoms associated with prostate adenoma, such as difficulty urinating, getting up at night to urinate, doubt about starting urination, and decreased urine flow. This provides less symptomatic treatment than alpha-1 blockers and symptom relief is slower in the beginning (for treatment with finasteride, it may take six months or more to determine the therapeutic outcome of the treatment).
By blocking the production of DHT, finasteride reduces the activity of androgens in the scalp. In the prostate, inhibition of 5a-reductase reduces the volume of the prostate, benign prostatic hyperplasia, which improves and reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Inhibition of 5-reductase also reduces the weight of the epididymis, and reduces the motility and normal morphology of sperm in the epididymis.
With constant use, a statistically significant effect is recorded after 3 months (decrease in gland volume), 4 months (increase in maximum urine flow rate) and 7 months (decrease in general symptoms and symptoms of urinary obstruction). When you stop taking the drug, changes in the prostate gland are restored within 6-8 months.
Due to its specific nature, finasteride does not have much effect on other hormones in the body. It is not associated with the androgen receptor and does not have androgenic, antiandrogenic, estrogenic or antiestrogenic properties. It should not affect the level of cortisol, thyroid stimulating hormone, or thyroxine, and should not change the level of high- or low-density alpha lipoprotein cholesterol. Changes in luteinizing or follicle-stimulating hormones are minor, this drug does not affect the hypothalamus-pituitary-testis system. In a small number of cases, a decrease in the level of dihydrotestosterone caused sexual disturbances. Although complaints were not frequent, this problem can be quickly resolved by stopping the drug.
Initially, finasteride was produced in the United States under the name Proscar and was used in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). In December 1997, finasteride was approved for the treatment of baldness.
As a rule, athletes who use or have used anabolic steroids suffer from excessive amount of dihydrotestosterone. As a result of the using of the large doses to the body, the following side effects may occur: acne, rash on the head, excessive growth of hair on the body and face, coarsening of the voice, increased aggressiveness. Such symptoms can cause a number of problems, both physical and psychological. Female athletes should be especially careful to such disorders, since the physiological changes associated with dihydrotestosterone can lead to irreversible processes in the female body, to the so-called masculinization. By minimizing the production of dihydrotestosterone, we reduce many side effects and stabilize testosterone levels.
To avoid the occurrence and to control above symptoms, MINT-Finasteride should be used, it allows you to cope with adverse manifestations qualitatively and fairly effectively, saving you from many problems, both physical and moral.
The drug should be used with the course of anabolic steroids on a daily basis. Typically, the dosage is 5 mg per day (one tablet). In this case, you should take the drug at the same time to maintain the amount of the substance in the blood.
This drug can be taken regardless of the meal (with or without food). The duration of this drug using should correspond to the duration of the course of steroid drugs, which include testosterone or dihydrotestosterone.
It is important not to increase or decrease the dosage of Finasteride on your own, but adhere to the recommendations for admission. The fact is that in many cases, dihydrotestosterone has a positive effect on the nervous and reproductive systems. With a decrease in its concentration, not only sexual disturbances are possible, but also a decrease in the strength accumulated during testosterone therapy (this is due to the effect of dihydrotestosterone on the neuromuscular system).
This drug may have some undesirable properties, it depends on the individual reaction of your body and the dose you use. Side effects of Finasteride include a decrease in potency and / or libido, impaired ejaculation, a decrease in ejaculate volume, an increase and tenderness of the mammary glands, an increase in blood levels of LH and FSH, a decrease in the concentration of prostate-specific antigen, allergic reactions (rash, skin itching, urticaria, edema lips and faces). Other side effects include the following symptoms:
- Mild ailments and weakness in the whole body;
- Accelerated heartbeat.
It is important to note that this drug will not be of great benefit to women (although testosterone is not a steroid for women), and they must be very careful with it. Pregnant women and those who may become pregnant should never take finasteride tablets. Blocking dihydrotestosterone can cause serious fetal development disorders, even when taking a small amount of the drug.
