thx for your answer man . I'm a little bit lost right now . because ive been on propecia for almost 19 month before starting minoxidil !!
My hair was like you at the beginning , Norwood 1,25 with vellu hair ,i thought propecia alone would help me , but after 19 month i was a strong Norwood 2,5 . **** . :ermm:
So now after 3 month of minoxidil twice a day , my hairline is worse despite some vellu hair .
But i stick with it, you're comment give me hope .
I've read that finasteride is most effective after 2 years of use, and for minoxidil; visible results start coming in at the 8 months stage. At the end of the day, what worked for me might not work for you as everyone's body responds differently to medication/drugs. Yeah I reckon you should just give it some more time and if you still don't see any improvement at all (no matter how minuscule) then maybe it's time to give the finasteride and min a rest and look into other options.
Good luck man!
