    \rogaine doing more damage ?

    You may want to brave it out for 6 months before you decide. I couldn't bare it, so I quit and now my hair looks much better up front. The thing I wonder is if the minoxidil was finally kicking in at the same time I quit. I guess if it starts looking worse, then I will know. It's totally up to...

    Anyone sucessfully quit Rogaine

    Well, since quitting I have successfully grown back the hair that minoxidil made fall out.

    \rogaine doing more damage ?

    Most people are going to say that 2 months isn't enough time to judge whether it will work for you. They will also say that the shedding is that of weakened hairs and they will grow back stronger. I am not sure of this as I quit rogaine for the same reasons you are contemplating it. I really...

    Anyone regret starting foam?

    Well, maybe I didn't wait it out long enough, but I had to trust my instincts. I'm just saying that I have seen many regrowth pics from minoxidil, but it never looks anything other than the "so what, who cares, still balding" type of hair. I'd love to see your pics.

    Anyone regret starting foam?

    I regret it!! Thankfully after dropping it my hair is getting thicker, but it is my belief that minoxidil NEVER EVER produces "quality" hair. Who gives a sh*t if you get peach fuzz?? It's not enough to be a cosmetic improvement. Finasteride on the other hand, clearly has a cosmetic effect.

    Effect of finasteride on frontal scalp - share your story

    Finasteride is definitely thickening up all of my hair including the front, but it only started happening after I dropped the foam. This is my second time on Finasteride. The first time I used it for 6 months and my hair looked incredible, but I quit because I foolishly thought I had pre-gyno...

    full head of hair....shedding

    I really don't think it's the finasteride. It's minoxidil, or at least it was for me. I think finasteride is a wonder drug. It's all the other topical crap that destroys your hair IMO.

    8 months on finasteride. Good so far!! With Pics

    It looks really good. Do you happen to have any pics prior to starting Finasteride? I am in total agreement with you on staying off of minoxidil unless it's a last ditch effort. I don't think minoxidil grows quality hair and everytime I have experimented with it, my hair looks worse. I am a good...

    Need advice

    Hey guys, For the past 3 months I've been on the big three with very promising results. As I was running out of Propecia, I decided to go generic because I figured it was a lifetime commitment. I ordered Finpecia from United Pharmacy. It arrived from Hong Kong. Now after 3 pills I am...
