Finasteride 1mg is a prescription hair loss drug that comes as a pill. The FDA has approved finasteride 1mg to treat men with male pattern hair loss. The technical term for what finasteride treats is androgenetic alopecia. Finasteride is more effective than treatments you can buy without a prescription.
Finasteride also comes in a 5mg strength but the 5mg dose is not approved by the FDA for hair loss. Our Lemonaid doctors or nurse practitioners only prescribe finasteride 1mg. We discourage you from cutting finasteride 5mg into 5 pieces.
