    My results 7 months into 1.25-2.50mg finasteride UPDATE 5/12

    My story -
    I got prescribed to Propecia and took that for about a month between mid-feb and april/may 2010..then switched over to finasteride 5MG and have been cutting that into fourths with a pill cutter. I took just 1.25MG of fin daily for a few months but still had some itch on my scalp so i upped the dose to 2.50 daily and the itching has stopped.
    I've considered bringing the dose back down now to 1.25 because I don't want to build a tolerance to that dose. I also use prescribed 2% Ketaconazole shampoo twice a week, which I'm pretty sure is the same as Nizoral, i use this WITH A CONDITIONER because I think using the shampoo alone dries/irritates my scalp..i let both the shampoo and conditioner sit on my scalp 5-10 min each. On top of all this i use rogaine foam where my hairline is receding and have had low expectations of hair regrowth and also no results.

    I am currently not suffering anymore hair loss or receding and the itching has stopped. Wish i would've started this a couple of years earlier when the hair loss begun but didn't start right away because of all the horror stories I read. I haven't experienced any sides except for minor ball ache after i upped the dose to 2.5mg of fin..but that went away after a couple weeks. I'm still kind of worried for the future but hope my hair loss has been completely halted for a few more years and hopefully some more regrowth can occur

    Congratulations! Great results.

    How long was it before you started seeing regrowth?

    I've been on my regimen for 3 months and can't really see any improvement.

    thanks for replies guys..
    and also I didn't notice regrowth until maybe about about 5 months into it after I would get a haircut..I would run home and view my scalp in the mirror, I actually wasn't anticipating much regrowth but I was hoping to halt the hairloss and scalp itch. I've done so much research on hair from what I gathered hair growth goes through several cycles and it can take up to a year before noticing any changes in hair patterns if you are on finasteride or some other type of drug like that..according to propecia's website if you don't notice hair growth or a halt in hair loss within 12 months then its probably not going to work. And also i did kind of go through a minor shed in my bald spot area before some of that grew back..freaked me out a bit

    There's hope for me yet then! I think the fin has stopped my hairloss, I hardly get any hair in my hands after running my hands through my hair. I'm happy with that but I would like some regrowth.

    I thought most people see some visible results by 3 months but it's good to know that it's possible people see them later like you did. Fingers crossed for the next 3 months.
