Propecia is a medicine based on a synthetic antiandrogen Finasteride, that inhibits type II 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme that transforms testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. Excessive quantity of dihydrotestosterone in a man’s body causes alopecia (baldness) and Propecia helps to stop this process, as well as promote growth of new hair on the baldness areas.
