Hi.
I've gone through your query and I can understand your anxiety.

Finax 1mg is most commonly used to treat hairloss & prostate enlargement. As you are on it for hair loads for the past 6months, care must be taken. Several studies came up with the reports that finax 1mg intake for a longer duration affects the kidneys resulting in "acute kidney injury".

Other side effects includes depression, decreased ejaculation, difficulty in breathing, breast pain etc.

Smoking result in diabetes, hypertension & also reduces the blood flow to kidneys, thereby affecting the kidneys.

So I advice you to have a periodic check up of renal function by doing renal function test

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Yogapriya V, General and family physician.
