hey guys.. i"m posting my story here because I feel that I have responded very well to the treatment and i am looking forward to to seeing the full results in another 6 months time...
I started to show a significant amount of diffuse thining around December of last year. I... like the most of you, began to freak out and look vigorously for a solution. I stumbled across this website and am sure glad i did. the support and information on this site gave me hope and reassurance and there is no other feeling like that of hope & reassurance during MPB.
Im 25 years old and have no hereditary disposition to MPB (That I knew of) . so you can see that this took me by surprise. I researched the famous " big 3 "---( Minox ( Rogaine) fin ( proscar/finstride) nizoral (anti dandruff shampoo) ) and saw that many people have had great success with these three different combinations of treatments while used simultaneously. I paid a visit to my dermatologist and received the RX for Proscar ( a generic version of finstide at an 8th of the price of fin) and purchased a 3month supply of Roagine ( foam) along with a bottle of Nizoral. I began my treatment mid January . and waited..
at first ( first month) i was ritualistic about the treatment.. proscar every day, minox twice a day and the Nizoral twice a week. i saw little improvement in the first month. I started getting a little lazy with the minox ( occasionally missing a day ) but have stayed the course with the the proscar. and have discontinued the Nizoral all together.
Today i am using solely The rogaine liquid ( i feel the foam was mostly being absorbed into my hair shafts and not my scalp)usually twice a day ( sometimes only once) and the proscar once a day. i have seen a substantial increase in hair shaft diameter as well as coverage... i will re update this thread in a couple months to show where i stand. thanks again guys.
