FAQs about hair loss & hair growth medicine

What are the typical causes of hair loss?

Hair loss is typically a result of heredity, a medical condition or a hormonal change or imbalance. The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary hair loss, which typically occurs or worsens as you age. Hereditary hair loss in men is also called male pattern baldness or by its medical name, androgenetic alopecia. For men, the first sign of male pattern hair loss may be a receding hairline or bald spot.
Hair loss can also be caused by several medical conditions, including alopecia areata, telogen effluvium and trichotillomania, fungal infections, iron deficiency, certain thyroid issues and even rapid weight loss. Alopecia areata causes the body’s immune system to attack its own hair follicles. This type of hair loss may be temporary or may need treatment if hair does not grow back. Stress, severe illness or another traumatic event can cause a temporary hair loss condition called telogen effluvium. Typically, after the stress or shock is reduced, the hair will grow back. Trichotillomania is characterized by compulsive hair-pulling. This condition will last until sufficient mental health treatment is received.
Hair loss can also be caused by certain medications and treatments, such as cancer treatment. Additionally, tight hairstyles like braids or ponytails can lead to scalp hair shedding.
Hair loss can be treated with medication, therapy or a combination, but determining the cause of your hair loss is the first step. If you are experiencing new or worsening hair loss, see your doctor or connect to a medical provider through the hims platform.

How do I know what type of hair loss I have?

It may be easy to determine the cause of hair loss, or a doctor may need to run tests to determine the root cause.
For men who are experiencing a receding hairline, patchy hair loss, or hair loss that worsens slowly with age, the condition may be a result of male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is a permanent hair loss type with no cure, but there are several treatments available to help slow hair loss and even regrow hair.
However, it is recommended that men who are suddenly noticing bald patches with no apparent cause or pattern seek medical attention to determine the cause. These cases of sudden hair loss may be caused by a medical condition, such as alopecia areata, vitamin deficiency or the side effect of a medication. The good news is that these types of hair loss are typically temporary and resolve when the medical condition is treated.
Learn more about the types of hair loss, like male pattern baldness, alopecia areata, and traction alopecia in our blog.

What medical treatment can help with hair loss?

While the best type of medical treatment depends on the cause of hair loss, male pattern hair loss can be treated with FDA-approved medications. Minoxidil, the generic for Rogaine®, is a topical treatment that is applied directly to the scalp. Minoxidil is best for new hair loss or to treat mild to moderate balding because it works by stimulating hair regrowth. For men who are experiencing thinning hair, minoxidil can help to restore some hair density. Another medication for male hair loss is finasteride, an oral medication that treats hair loss by blocking the hormones that inhibit hair growth. Finasteride can help to prevent additional balding and can even stimulate hair regrowth.
If you’re looking non-drug options to help with your hair, there is a surgical option called a hair transplant. As for non-medical aids (besides wigs and toupees), there are supplements like our biotin gummies, and hair care products like our hair thickening shampoo.
Note: men experiencing hair loss due to stress, a mental health disorder or a vitamin deficiency should treat the hair loss by treating the root cause. With any hair loss, consult a doctor or other qualified medical professional to determine the proper treatment.

Are side effects common when taking finasteride?

As with any medication, there are potential side effects caused by finasteride. Some common side effects include new problems with your erection, ejaculation or sexual desire, pain in the testicles, rash, breast pain or enlargement and depression. If any of these side effects are severe, bother you, or don’t go away, consult a medical provider. If you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as trouble breathing or hives, seek emergency medical attention.

Is there a hair loss cure?

There isn’t a cure for hair loss, but there are effective medications and hair restoration treatments. While these medications or procedures may slow hair loss or even reverse balding, beware of any company claiming to “cure” your hair loss, as there is no complete cure for hair loss.

How hair loss medication can help

Loss prevention

Even if you have a pretty full head of hair, you might want to get ahead of the game if male pattern baldness runs in the family—treatment can take time to work best.

Thinning at the crown

For some men, androgenic alopecia results in bald spots on the top of the head. It happens as the anagen, or growth phase, of follicles shortens over time.

Receding hairline

Often a combo of family history and aging, seeing more forehead is common for guys. It’s also generally related to the anagen phase of follicles shortening as we get older.

Thinning all over

If you’re seeing more of your scalp, balding all over, or styling is getting harder, a prescription can still help. It’s normal for hair follicles to close as men age, and the treatment we offer can help reactivate them.

Shop by treatment options

No matter the treatment plan, the best place to start is somewhere. Early action is the best hair loss prevention.

What is finasteride?
Finasteride is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).
It is not known if finasteride works for a receding hairline on either side of and above your forehead (temporal area).
Finasteride is not for use by women and children, and should not be handled by women and children.
Who should not take finasteride?
Do not take finasteride if you:
  • are pregnant or may become pregnant. Finasteride may harm your unborn baby.
    • Finasteride tablets are coated and will prevent contact with the medicine during handling, as long as the tablets are not broken or crushed. Females who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not come in contact with broken or crushed finasteride tablets.
    • If a pregnant woman comes in contact with crushed or broken finasteride tablets, wash the contact area right away with soap and water. If a woman who is pregnant comes into contact with the active ingredient in finasteride, a healthcare provider should be consulted. If a woman who is pregnant with a male baby swallows or comes in contact with the medicine in finasteride, the male baby may be born with sex organs that are not normal.
  • are allergic to any of the ingredients in finasteride.
What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking finasteride? Before taking finasteride, tell your healthcare provider if you:
  • have any other medical conditions, including problems with your prostate or liver.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
Know the medications you take. Keep a list of them to show your healthcare provider and pharmacist when you get a new medication.
How should I take finasteride?
  • Take finasteride exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it.
  • You may take finasteride with or without food.
  • If you forget to take finasteride, do not take an extra tablet. Just take the next tablet as usual.
Finasteride will not work faster or better if you take it more than once a day.
What are the common side effects of this medication?
Common side effects include rash, breast tenderness or enlargement (reported in less than 1% of patients) which typically resolve after the medication is stopped, and sexual dysfunction (in clinical trials, 1.2%-1.4% of patients taking finasteride experienced medication-related sexual dysfunction side effects including decreased libido, erectile dysfunction or a decrease in the volume of ejaculation vs. 1% of those taking placebo):
  • Decreased libido 1.8%
  • Erectile dysfunction 1.3%
  • Decreased volume of ejaculate 1.2%
Several studies have documented the majority of these side effects are reversible. However, 1.4% of the patients who experience side effects may continue to have symptoms following discontinuation of finasteride. Of particular note there has been an association of the sexual dysfunction symptoms and the use of NSAIDS (Motrin, Advil, Aleve type medications.) For this reason finasteride should be stopped for the period of time when you take NSAIDS.
Does finasteride cause depression?
A literature review shows there may be evidence of increased depressive symptoms in individuals younger than age 45 while using finasteride for hair loss. Patients with new or worsening depression should stop finasteride use and follow up with their health care provider or a mental health therapist. Source: MedPageToday.org

Does finasteride cause prostate cancer or prostate enlargement (BPH)?
There have been reports of a slight increased risk (1.8% with 5mg finasteride dosage versus 1.0% placebo) of high grade prostate cancer for men over age 55 years old. These reports are from men taking a higher dosage of finasteride (5mg) than the dosage we prescribe for hair loss (1mg). There have been conflicting studies on the increased risk in the number of high grade prostate cancers; however, several recent studies have shown no increase in the number of deaths (with a recent study showing fewer deaths) in patients who use finasteride at the 1mg dosage. Finasteride can be useful in the treatment of BPH and urinary retention because it can have an antiandrogenic effect (testosterone blocking) at a 5mg dosage. For hair loss, patients are given a 1mg dosage, which produces a lower antiandrogenic effect.
Does finasteride change blood Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels?
Finasteride can affect a blood test called PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) for the screening of prostate cancer. If you have a PSA test done you should tell your healthcare provider that you are taking finasteride because finasteride decreases PSA.
The following have been reported as less common side effects with finasteride use:
  • Allergic reactions including: rash, itching, hives and swelling of the lips, tongue, throat, and face
  • Testicular pain
  • Male infertility and/or poor quality of semen
  • In rare cases, male breast cancer
Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.
These are not all the possible side effects of finasteride. For more information, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088
The following have been reported in general use with finasteride:
  • breast tenderness and enlargement. Tell your healthcare provider about any changes in your breasts such as lumps, pain or nipple discharge.
  • decrease in sex drive that continued after stopping the medication.
  • allergic reactions including rash, itching, hives and swelling of the lips, tongue, throat, and face.
  • problems with ejaculation that continued after stopping medication.
  • testicular pain.
  • difficulty in achieving an erection that continued after stopping the medication.
  • male infertility and/or poor quality of semen.
  • in rare cases, male breast cancer.
Depression: A literature review shows there may be evidence of increased depressive symptoms in users younger than age 45 while using finasteride for hair loss.
