The manufacturer is Aleppo / Ind-Swift. It is a leading Indian pharma company, based in Chandigarh. Ind-Swift belongs to the second largest drug manufacturers in India.
Generic Proscar 5 mg is taken orally, once a day, during 6-7 month or more. Single intake of Finasteride 5 mg leads to a rapid decrease in the concentration of DHT in the serum with a maximum effect after 8 hours. Although Finasteride level in blood plasma is subjected to vibrations during the 24 hours, the DHT level remains constant. This means that the concentration of Finasteride in the blood plasma is not directly related to the concentration of DHT. The drug with similar action to this one, which treats the benign prostatic hyperplasia is Dutasteride 0.5mg.
