DESCRIPTION: Proscar by Merck is an inhibitor of 5a-reductase, which is the enzyme responsible for converting Testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Proscar by Merck can efficiently reduce the serum concentration of DHT, thereby minimizing the unwanted androgenic effects that result from its presence. The effect of Proscar by Merck is quite rapid, suppressing serum DHT concentrations as much as 65% within 24 hours after taking a single 1 mg tablet. Medically, Proscar by Merck is used to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (prostate enlargement) and androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss). Proscar by Merck is also being investigated as a potential treatment for hirsutism, which describes male patterned hair growth on the face or body of a woman. Male athletes and bodybuilders are interested in finasteride for its ability to reduce the androgenic side effects associated with the use of Testosterone and certain derivatives.

Proscar by Merck is a specific inhibitor of the Type-II 5a reductase enzyme. There are actually two isozymes of reductase in the human body, labeled as Type-I and Type-II. Type-I 5a-reductase is predominantly found in the liver and sebaceous glands of the skin. Type-II 5a-reductase is primarily found in the prostate and hair follicles. The Type-II enzyme is responsible for about 2/3rd of the circulating DHT, while the Type-I enzyme produces the remaining 1/3rd. As an inhibitor of Type-II reductase only, finasteride has a more pronounced effect with regard to preventing hair loss, but is somewhat less effective at mitigating oily skin and acne. Since hair loss is the primary worry among most male steroid users who use reductase inhibitors, Proscar by Merck remains a popular ancillary drug in spite of its inability to block DHT conversion in all tissues.

Proscar by Merck is considered a highly specific drug, as it has little spillover effect on the other hormones in the body. Proscar by Merck has no affinity for the androgen or estrogen receptors, and therefore does not exhibit any androgenic, anti androgenic, estrogenic, or anti-estrogenic properties. Proscar by Merck has no appreciable impact on circulating levels of cortisol, thyroid-stimulating hormone, or thyroxine, nor does it appear to alter HDL/LDL cholesterol levels. Changes in luteinizing hormone (LH) or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are also not notable, and it is not shown to have a significant effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis. Proscar by Merck has been shown to increase the circulating levels of Testosterone by roughly 1S%, however, since a greater amount of the androgen is being left unaltered by the reductase enzyme.

When used medically for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) in men, the recommended dosage is 1 mg per day. When used for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), 5 mg per day is usually administered. When used by bodybuilders and athletes to reduce the androgenicity of Testosterone, Methyltestosterone, or Fluoxymesterone, Proscar by Merck is commonly taken in a dosage of 1 mg per day. Proscar by Merck is typically administered for as long as the offending steroids are also taken. Since DHT inhibition can lessen strength and possibly muscle gains during Testosterone, Methyltestosterone, or Fluoxymesterone therapy (given the positive actions of androgens on the neuromuscular system), a "use only when necessary" approach is usually taken with regard to this drug.
