Hi, i’m a female 47, have been visited by a dermatologist who prescribed finestride 0.5 mg daily. As far as I’ve seen in an internet search, this drug is only for men so I doubt to use it. Would you please tell me what to do, I will appreciate that , thank alot.
Finasteride is not recommended for women. There is no data on safety concerning things like cancers of uterus, ovary, cervix, or breast. Although pregnancy may by unusual for a 47 year old, it does happen and this medication will probably produce sexual growth problems in the fetus. The results on experimental finasteride for women is not clear nor is it statistically significant. Read Finasteride for Female Hair Loss for more info.
