    I count myself lucky to have most of my hair back. Here's an update of how my hair looks now in compared to how it was:






    I think it'd be appropriate of me to clarify that my intent isn't to flaunt or show off. But rather to debunk the myths spread around the internet regarding the side effects. I wouldn't address them as lies, as the side effects are very much true, but only to a minuscule amount of people. I can also guarantee you that most of the side effect talk is from those who haven't even attempted to give the medication a shot. With all that being said, I would recommend a doctor's approval before taking the medication.



    I do have one question, though. I'm planning to switch from Merck's finasteride to Aurobindo's finasteride, with the hopes of not losing any gains. I know this barely makes any sense, but does it make any difference if I were to switch from Proscar to generic finasteride?

    Now:

    A lot of people thought that I had a hair transplant... but a hair transplant would be obvious, cuz my hair would be all pointy

    I've experienced 0 side effects. Most of the things rumoured about finasteride is pretty bs, tbh

    My hair started shedding within the first month. I then noticed exponential hair growth after the 4-month mark.

    how come? I'm currently on Merck's finasteride.

    current finasteride dosage? are you using minoxidil liquid or foam?

    great results btw

    I wanted to make the switch, cuz Merck is too expensive. I then thought that it was alright, so now im sticking with Merck.

    im using liquid minoxidil twice a day
