Dutahair is an oral hair loss treatment drug produced by Fortune Health Care. It contains the active substance dutasteride, which is a reductase inhibitor. This means that it is an inhibitor of the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase that is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Dutasteride inhibits both type I and type II forms of the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase and this dual effect makes the drug very potent but also increases the risk of adverse reactions.
Effects of Dutasteride
Men who suffer from male pattern baldness or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) have an elevated level of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This DHT is produced from testosterone by an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase. Dutasteride works by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, thereby blocking the formation of DHT which disrupts the development of male pattern baldness and the development of BPH.
How to take dutasteride pills
The medicine from Fortune Health Care comes in gel capsules that are taken by mouth. One capsule (0.5 mg) is usually taken once daily with or without food. It is best to take it at the same time each day. The drug should be taken until the symptoms of hair loss disappear, so the duration of use will be different for everyone. Symptoms may improve after 3 months, 6 months, or longer, but keep taking the medicine until symptoms are completely gone. The medication may control symptoms without completely curing the condition.
