What is Fin.481?
Compounded Finasteride “Fin.481” is a specially formulated oral treatment to help men and postmenopausal women in the medical management of hair loss.
This custom compounded medication contains 25% more finasteride than the popular FDA-approved hair loss drug Propecia® along with a unique blend of 481 milligrams of supplemental nutrients to optimize healthy hair regrowth, which is why it is called “Fin.481.”
What are the active ingredients in compounded Finasteride?
Fin.481 contains specially pharmacy-compounded finasteride 1.25mg plus a sophisticated blend of hair-healthy nutrients that have been combined for the purpose of synergistically protecting and supporting hair follicle function. These nutrients are biotin, L-lysine, zinc, riboflavin, folic acid and methylsulfonyl-methane (MSM) and were specially selected for maximum hair support.
What are the benefits of Fin.481?
While finasteride has been shown to lower DHT—a primary trigger for male pattern baldness, the hair-healthy supplemental nutrients offer additional benefits to patients, including supporting healthy hair growth by improving blood circulation, converting the food we eat into energy for the high energy demands of hair follicles, and for decreasing inflammation in the body.
Fin.481 is a less expensive alternative to Propecia® and is more powerful than generic finasteride. Prescriptions for Fin.481 cost about one-third less than name-brand Propecia®, and without the inconsistencies as sometimes experienced with generic medications.
How do I use the medication?
Fin.481 is a capsule that should be taken once a day, with or without food. Prescriptions are available in a convenient 90-day supply along with discreet delivery.
What kind of results can I expect?
All patients respond differently to treatment. But, in most cases, compounded finasteride works within the first 90 days to measurably slow, stop and reverse miniaturization of hair follicles for regrowth of h2, healthy hair fibers. Routine HairCheck® measurements are advised to track your results.
Are there side effects to Fin.481?
As with any therapy, there is always a risk of side effects, but nearly 98% of patients do not report any side effects. Any side effects should be discussed immediately with your Bauman Medical provider, who can work with you to find the best fit for your hair growth regimen.
Can I use Fin.481 with my other hair growth Treatments?
Yes, compounded finasteride is often used in conjunction with laser therapy, topical medication, PRP, PDOgro™, additional nutritional supplements and hair transplants. Using Fin.481 as part of a multi-therapy treatment plan will help ensure patients achieve optimal results.
Is Fin.481 right for me?
Like other hair loss therapies, Fin.481 is always most effective when treatment is started early in the hair loss process. Hereditary hair loss always gets worse over time without treatment, so the earlier treatment is started, the better chance you have of saving the hair that you have.
Fin.481 is only available through a prescription to patients who have been evaluated, to ensure they are a good candidate for the treatment. Ask a member of the Bauman Medical team about our convenient, discrete Autoship Delivery Option for your prescription medication.
About 2% of patients may experience decreased libido, mild erectile dysfunction or reduced ejaculate volume, although these side-effects can be reversed. If you experience these or other side effects, please contact our office for instructions.
