What is Aindeem

Aindeem is a film-coated tablet produced by the pharmaceutical company Actavis. It is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss. It is a prescription medication that is taken orally (whole, it must not be broken or crushed).

Aindeem is a licensed medication for the treatment of male hair loss and is licensed by the UK and US medical regulatory bodies, the MHRA and FDA, respectively.

The product is used to prevent and/or stop the underlying cause of androgenic alopecia through the use of once-a-day tablets which contain 1mg doses of finasteride. Finasteride is the active ingredient in Aindeem – the same as is found in Propecia, and in the same 1mg dosage. In larger doses finasteride is used to treat prostate problems such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

How to take Aindeem

The recommended dose is one tablet (1mg finasteride) daily.

The tablet should be swallowed whole and should not be broken or crushed.

Aindeem may be taken with or without food.

Aindeem will not work faster or better if you take it more than once a day.

Possible Side Effects

Like all medicines, Aindeem can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Stop taking Aindeem and immediately contact a doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms of an allergic reaction:

  • Skin rashes, itching, or lumps under your skin (hives)
  • (angioedema) swelling of lips, face, tongue or throat
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Breathing difficulties

You should promptly report to your doctor any changes in the breast tissue such as lumps, pain, enlargement of the breast tissue or nipple discharge as these may be signs of a serious condition, such as breast cancer.

Do not take Aindeem if

  • You are female, Aindeem should not be taken by women
  • you are allergic to finasteride or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
  • are a woman (because this medicine is for men)
  • are already taking finasteride or dutasteride, used for a prostate problem called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
