(couldn't pm you) Hi. I'm also having problems with facial hair development. I first took finasteride when I was about to turn 18. At that time, beard was filling in quite fast. 2 and a half years later I decided to resume the drug's use (ED, sexual issues), it's been 5 months since then. The frontal area of my face remains quite patchy and almost hairless (only sideburns grows thick). I know it isn't genetics, every man - and I mean ALL of them - on both sides of my family can grow full, mature, decent beards. It's a tricky situation. Many factors come into play: testosterone (including its free form) levels, dht levels, distribution of androgen receptors, or it might just be AGE (I hope so, I'm only 20 btw). I know I won't go back to this drug, physical and psychological effects were heavy and the last thing I wish it's bearing them again. All we can do now is: research, research, research and wait. Good diet, healthy lifestyle and a doctor's advice is always a must.
