I'm no different from any other guys posting here. Unfortunately for me, I do suffer from MPH. Its a pain in the ass and money wise i've spent on ridiculous products to counter my hair loss. Finally today ive decided to start on Propecia.
I have been using minoxidil though since Sept 2010. Doctor gave me 2%, then 3% and around may 2011 started using 5%. Yes ive seen results, hair growth on the temples but unfortunately again the effects wear off. Currently using minoxidil 5% but i find it not effective at all hence was advised to start on propecia for better results.
Im trying to stay positive and optimistic and not think much about the side effects. I just want my hair to be normal.
