Hi there, I haven't really posted on here before. I tried generic finasteride for about 2 years. Didn't seem to do anything for me. I dropped it last Jan/Feb. I decided I'd give regaine a try. A last roll of the dice as I thought putting something on your head twice a day is a lot of hassle (which it is). Have been applying 5% twice a day since end of January. I was initially using the foam but found most went on the hair not on the scalp. I switched to the liquid and that is much easier to use. I do seem to be noticing my hair is looking a little fuller and people have commented. Now I'm sceptical so I take it with a pinch of salt for now. It could be that I'm styling my hair differently too but we'll see. Either way it may be starting to turn around. I'm just wondering would it be worth getting back on finasteride as well now that the minoxidil seems to be working? Or is it just the case it doesn't work for some people. Also, maybe I shouldn't mess with something that now seems to be working (minoxidil alone)? Any thoughts much appreciated.
