Active ingredient in drug – Finasterid. This synthetic compound, is a specific competitive inhibitor 5 – II — alpha reductases of a desmoenzyme which turns testosterone into more active androgen — dihydrotestosterone. At a benign hyperplasia of a prostate its increase depends on transformation of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone in a prostate. Finasterid highly effectively reduces concentration of dihydrotestosterone both in a blood plasma, and in prostate gland tissue. Suppression of formation of dihydrotestosterone is followed by reduction of the sizes of a prostate, increase in the maximum speed of urination and decrease in expressiveness of the symptoms connected with a prostate hyperplasia.

Finasterid has no affinity to receptors of androgens.
