Hair loss in men is common and is caused due to the effects of the hormone Testosterone on hair follicles on the scalp. It can be hereditary and effects all men differently. It can also be caused by conditions such as stress, depresssion, alopecia, iron deficiency and certain drug treatments such as cancer therapy. 
Finasteride is a Hair Loss treatment for men only.

It works by reducing the breakdown of the male hormone testosterone into another hormone called dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT is responsible for male hair loss. By reducing the amount of DHT affecting hair follicles, finasteride can reduce hair loss in upto 90% of men. In some cases, it can also stimulate hair regrowth.

How is it taken?

Finasteride is taken as a single daily tablet taken at the same time each day. 

How effective is Finasteride?

Finasteride has been shown to prevent hair loss in around 90% of men, and in some cases may also cause hair regrowth.

It may take between 3 to 6 months for effects to be seen with continued treatment. Effects will continue whilst the treatment is taken and may be reversed on stopping the treatment.
Like all drugs, there are some side-effects whilst using Finasteride. These are often mild and not all men using finasteride are effected. 

Side-effects include

breast swelling or tenderness
pain in the testicles
difficulty having an erection even after discontinuation of treatment
Decreased sex drive
male infertility

Infertility has been reported in men who took finasteride for long time and had other risk factors that may affect fertility.

Mood alterations such as depressed mood, depression and, less frequently, suicidal thoughts have been reported in patients treated with finasteride.

Regaine, available over the counter, is an alternative treatment available in the form of foams and shampoos applied externally.

Other alternative treatments include hair transplants and wigs.
