How long will it take to see the results of finasteride treatment?

Finasteride can take 3–4 months to show any benefit, and it can take up to a year to see the maximum results.

When finasteride first enters the system, it may cause shedding of fine hairs. Do not be concerned, as this is expected.

As long as you do not experience side effects, it is best to continue medication for one full year before deciding whether the medication is doing all it can for you. Please see the full Prescribing Information for more information.
