    Current regiment not effective, what should i add?

    Hi, i am currently 19 years old and have been seeing quite a receding hairline forming. My father is at VII on norwood and is definitely at the end of baldness, while i am at 2 or 3 i believe. I have been using Provillus 5% minoxidil for about 2 years once a day. What would you recommend as the 5% minoxidil once a day isn't enough? should i amp it up to twice a day and add another product? I am really worried about the procepia pills i read people using on these forums as the side effects seem to be pretty bad in the long run, and if i were to start a product i would have to use it forever if i want to keep hair.

    Let me know, here are pictures that hair club took.

    If you don't take fin it'll only get worse. Side effects are usually temporary and they only persist for a minority of people.

    Yes as well as your regular doctor too I believe. If they refuse you can buy generic fin online, many of the forum users do that since it's way cheaper and have gotten great results (including myself).
