Some guys are anxious to take oral Finasteride tablets because of the perceived risk of developing unwanted side effects, including reduced libido, which in clinical trials affected approximately 3% of those taking them. There is evidence to suggest that men who use Topical Finasteride are less likely to experience these side effects, as the treatment is localised to the scalp as opposed to being digested. Multiple studies have shown that Topical Finasteride can be very effective in treating hair loss, with results which are comparable with those seen when taking oral Finasteride.
Additionally, using Topical Finasteride can be more convenient, since it can be combined with Minoxidil into a single treatment. This is great for guys who would otherwise need to both take a pill and apply a solution to their scalp every day. The Hims Topical Finasteride with Minoxidil treatment combines two separate hair loss treatments into a single solution for easy, convenient application.
