    Hello, I'm new

    Hello to all. My name is krx1 and i am from germany. I registered myself in this forum, because i feel helpless. I'm about 18 years old, take Finasteride for 14 months, but my hair loss increased in this time. When I started taking Fin I had a NW 0,5-1. Now it is 2-2,5. I additionally take Letrozol to reduce the estrogen levels and minoxidil 1-2 times daily.

    Here is a picture from my hair status, it's about 3 months old, my current status is worse.

    Hope I can maintain my actual status.

    GENERIC NAME: LETROZOLE - ORAL (LET-tro-zole)

    USES: This medication is used to treat certain types of breast cancer (such as hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer) in women after menopause.

    SIDE EFFECTS: Hot flashes, hair loss, joint/bone/muscle pain, tiredness, unusual sweating, nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, and trouble sleeping may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
    I am confused as to why an 18 year old male is on this medication.

    if your doctor has prescribed this to you for a specific reason then you need to notify him of your persisted hair loss. If this is self prescribed then you need to stop it until you have a doctor monitoring you.
