I am a young woman.my testosterone test was high and my physician prescribe finasteride for acne. I am so worry about to take it. please guide me.
Finasteride has been used in some parts of the world (Europe) to treat acne but has yet to be approved in the US for this purpose.
Finasteride is an anti-androgen (blocks the effects of testosterone). It seems to be not quite as effective as other similar acne treatments eg flutamide and cyproterone acetate, but is better tolerated.
Finasteride should not be used in pregnant women.
