Finasteride is a synthetic drug that is pharmacologically termed as 5-alpha-reductase (intracellular enzyme) inhibitor. The main action of Finasteride is prevention of conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Generic Finpecia blocks DHT, thereby promoting hair growth and controlling hair fall in men.
