i could Pm pics if you delete them after
But i am afraid of the verdict ( even if i know the damn truth ) !

the thing is I have no baseline pics , i just have pics after two years on fina ( 18 month on 1 mg and 6 month on 5 mg ) , and 10 month on minoxidil on hairline at that time . and this is mostly video
And i don't know how to blurry my face

but trust me bro , i don't have perfect hair like @davesmith420 .
At the beginning this was some BDD , but now the hairloss is f*****g real ( reaching Norwood 3 ) , even my derm is quite shocked by the path my hair is going

Any side effects?

When i first started I couldnt really get an erection for about a week or so.. and i also stopped for a week to fill the script and accidentally took two pills in like 8 hours and i couldnt get an erection the next day but besides that none!

Well i guess minus the hair shedding

But to be honest that could just be me exaggerating things

My hair does seem thinner but who knows!

Im extremely happy so far! And my hair is already alot thicker!

you are still using minoxidil ?
Twice a day every single day!

sometimes i forget but its whatever

I was using the foam but am trying the liquid now and it seems to be better for getting it in my actual hairline area

For someone who is losing hair and soo afraid about propecia... What's your advice???

Listen take my medical advice. The drug inhibits receptors, they show results. You see any negative sides, you stop the drug, the drug action stops, body returns to normal.

If you are worried and have the money to sustain treatment I personally 100% recommend you to start. It'll help your confidence and actually yield results.

So update! Im shedding a sh*t load right now! Ive been on it for about 7 months... Any advice?

I assume this is normal, as I've seen many posts about a shed around now.

Continue and monitor over next couple months. No sides at all? You look good, man, got the hair, good face, maybe buff up a bit and cycle through all the girls at the U. Best of Luck!

Shouldn't have started minoxidil with finasteride, minoxidil can cause a lot of shedding, now we don't know if its minoxidil or finasteride that's causing the shed

How old are you now? And did it worked for you?

Sorry for bothering, I've been thinking of taking it but i was afraid about "not developing fully" thing

I am now 19 years old now. I maintained and even regrew the crown on finasteride and minoxidil. Im not on it anymore though, Im on a stronger regime now because on finasteride I was experiencing no regrowth on the hairline.

Finasteride is not the hardcore drug people here believe it is. You probably wont notice any changes. The two years I was on it I had no issues, if you notice any just stop the taking the medication and they will subside.

What do you say is better? Dutasteride??

And no to everyone no sides that still remain all I had are gone

Just this recent shed

Honestly I’m not too worried why would I have regressed... my hair is clearly just in a growing stage and that’s why it fell out
