Finasteride's Half-life

Recommended Posts

If Finasteride has a half-life of only 5 hours then does that mean ideally you should be taking another 1mg dose every 5 hours or so to keep it in your system supressing the DHT?

No, because after one 1mg dose of finasteride it takes several days before DHT levels return to baseline. Stick to the instructions in the Propecia patient information leaflet.
