Since the Merck patent for Propecia expired in 2013, the FDA has given approval to other pharmaceutical companies to produce the generic version of Propecia, known as finasteride in a 1 milligram tablet. These companies include Sun Pharma Global, Hetero Labs Ltd III, TEVA, Actavis Totowa, Accord Healthcare Inc., Dr. Reddy's Labs Inc., Aurobindo Pharma Ltd. and Mylan Pharms Inc. Be aware that some fraudulent pharmacies found online may try to sell you an adulterated or counterfeit version of finasteride, which may contain false or harmful ingredients.
Propecia is a type II category 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, which means it prevents the conversion of the male hormone, testosterone, into the more powerful dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is synthesized from the female hormone progesterone.
Propecia is designed to be structurally similar to testosterone. It binds to 5-alpha-reductase in the place of testosterone, and prevents testosterone from being metabolized into DHT. This in turn reduces the amount of DHT available in the typical male taking Propecia by anywhere from 65 to 70 percent. In fact, within 24 hours of taking the first dose of a 1 milligram Propecia tablet, a man can experience up to a 65 percent drop in DHT concentrated on the scalp.
On the scalp of men who have male pattern balding, a combination of greater amounts of DHT in the scalp area, compared to men with full heads of hair, and hair follicles which have shrunk, cause the balding.

Propecia for Prostrate Problems'
In a stronger amount, finasteride is marketed under the brand name Proscar, and is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a medical condition commonly referred to as enlarged prostate. Propecia is effective for treating baldness in the middle of the scalp and the crown, and it does not affect hair growth on other parts of the body. It is not known whether or not Propecia helps regrow hair above or on either side of the temple region on a man's head.
When taken for prostate problems, Propecia's generic component, finasteride, reduces the DHT available in the prostate by as much as 85 to 90 percent. The end result is that DHT is not available to shut down the hair follicles, which means that men who experience male pattern balding and who take Propecia tend to notice hair regrowth.
Also, men who take larger doses of finasteride experience a reduction of prostate swelling, which can reduce the chances of prostate cancer, as well as improving BPH symptoms such as a decrease in urine flow, a slow beginning to the flow of urine and having to get up frequently during the night to urinate. Finally, another effect of inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase is that the movement of the sperm in the epididymis portion of the testicles is reduced, and their shape is changed.
Besides baldness and BPH, finasteride may also slow the development of benign tumors of the prostate, as well as the number of benign tumors which may develop on the prostate.
