What is Aindeem?

Aindeem contains the medicine finasteride, which is a Type II 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It can arrest early hair loss in men (a condition also known as androgenetic alopecia), and increase the number of hairs on the scalp. It does this by inhibiting the enzyme that blocks the conversion of testosterone to another androgen called DHT, which causes small scalp hair follicles. This mechanism stops you going bald.

How to use Aindeem

Take one 1 mg Aindeem tablet each day - more tablets do not work better. Swallow it whole and don't break or crush it. This medicine does not work quickly, and so it may take 3–6 months for maximum effect. Also, you are likely to lose any gained hair within a year if you stop the treatment so it is essential to continue unless your are advised otherwise. If you take too many tablets, then immediately contact us for advice; if you miss a dose then continue as you have been instructed with your next dose - do not double up.

Who can use Aindeem?

Aindeem is for adult men only. It is not for women (it doesn't work) or for children. However, men cannot take this tablet if they are allergic to the active ingredient finasteride or the other tablet components (e.g., lactose). They also must not take it if they are currently prescribed finasteride or dutasteride for the prostate condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia. Notably, women who are pregnant must not touch broken/crushed Aindeem tablets (due to skin absorption, which is prevented by the tablet's film coating) nor be exposed to the semen of a man who is taking Aindeem (they must use a condom). This is because a male baby may be born with abnormal genital organs.

Before using Aindeem, you are advised to mention to your doctor if you have any alterations, e.g., size, lumps, and soreness, or discharge from your breasts; and if you are scheduled for a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test as the test results may be affected.

All your prescription and non-prescription medicines should be discussed with your doctor. If you are currently applying minoxidil for hair loss, be aware that there is no information about any potential beneficial effects of using Aindeem at the same time but it is not harmful.

Aindeem side effects

As with any product, discontinue Aindeem and get immediate medical assistance if you notice any symptoms of an allergic reaction, including skin rash or itch, and swallowing or breathing problems; and if you notice any difference to your breasts or discharge from your nipples. While uncommon, Aideem can interfere with your sex life causing problems with erections, ejaculation and libido (all of which may continue after you stop treatment), and depress your mood. Painful testicles, infertility, palpitations, and increases in blood liver enzymes have also been reported but are extremely rare.

Finasteride use has been associated with depressed mood for some time but a review of evidence in 2017 has suggested that more significant depression can occur, including suicidal thoughts in rare cases.

If you are prescribed Finasteride and you develop depression then you must stop taking the medication and report this to us or another healthcare professional straight away.
