Ask your pharmacist about how Finnexia can help you.

  • How does Finnexia work?

    Finnexia works primarily by activating areas of the frontal and prefrontal cortex of the brain that are responsible for language and speech activity. Finnexia stimulates the pathways that aid in cognitive processes, memory, speech actions and comprehension. Although some people experience the effects of Finnexia within 24 hours, it may take up to 5-7 days for the initial effects to begin.

  • Why is the Finnish language so difficult to learn?

    Finnish may not be as challenging as Japanese, Arabic, or Swahili. However, it has a very unique grammatical structure that can make it difficult to master. The meanings of Finnish words depend on suffix changes, and its morphology relies on vowel harmony and consonant gradation. In addition, the vocabulary and structure of written Finnish differs greatly from that of the spoken, colloquial form of the language.


    Finnish does not belong to any Indo-European languages, making it hard to recognize any similarities between it and major Western languages. As a native English-speaker living in Finland, it may be especially difficult to find the motivation to learn Finnish, since most native Finns speak fluent English. As a result, it is tempting to get by with English only, on a daily basis. Finnexia builds confidence in the Finnish language learning process, and can help one deal with these challenges. 

  • Can Finnexia help me learn other languages other than Finnish?

    Finnexia is specially formulated to enhance the learning process for acquiring the Finnish language. However, because Finnexia is indicated for treatment of general Finno-Ugric language deficiency, it may also be used to assist in the acquisition of other languages in the Finno-Ugric family, including Hungarian, Estonian and Erzya. Use of Finnexia for learning languages other than Finnish may offer only mildly successful results.


  • Who should take Finnexia?

    Finnexia may be taken by adults 18 years or older who are experiencing difficulty in learning the Finnish language. This medication may also be taken by adults trying to learn other FInno-Ugric languages.

  • Who should not take Finnexia?

    It is important to read and carefully follow the labeling directions for use of Finnexia. People who have a family history of schizophrenia or autism should not use Finnexia. If you have any questions about whether you should take Finnexia, ask a healthcare professional.


  • Can pregnant women take Finnexia?

    Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should ask a healthcare professional before taking Finnexia.

  • What are the dosing instructions for Finnexia?

    Finnexia is a 40mg tablet to be taken once a day before eating in the morning. Finnexia is a 30-day course of treatment and can be repeated every 6 months as needed. Finnexia is most effective when taken in combination with attendance of a Finnish language classroom course, or a self-study Finnish course. For maximum effect, the medication should be taken during a course that involves at least 1-2 months of language study.

  • Does Finnexia have any side effects?

    Like all medicines, Finnexia may cause side effects. The most common are headaches, loss of appetite and muscle cramping. At higher dosages of Finnexia (more than 80mg per day), side effects may include: memory loss, hallucinations, tremors, and in some cases, permanent damage to the neurons in the frontal and prefrontal cortex. It is important to take Finnexia only at the indicated dosage and time duration.

  • Where can I buy Finnexia?

    Finnexia is available at local pharmacies throughout Finland and in major cities in Sweden. It can also be ordered directly online from Huxor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Finnexia is an OTC (over-the-counter) medication, and can be purchased without a doctor's prescription.
