Fantastic result, but I would have just started with finasteride alone. Minoxidil can lose its efficacy for some very quickly, quick regrowth then a few months down line, all gains lost.
Minoxidil is volatile, it is effectively a chemical wig.
Best of luck!
I know you said you didn't see any significant changes until after 4 months but when did you first realise you're regimen had some effect, however minimal?
What and when was the first sign something was happening?
After about a month I noticed when drying my hair there wasn't loads of hairs left on the towel that was my first ckue although that is happening now as I'm in a constant shed it seems. After about a month to maybe month 9 I stopped shedding.
When did you start to see results on your temples? When you were 2/3 months into finasteride did you see any results? Im two months into the same regiment and my hairline is still receding.
About the 4 month mark although for me I had early results. Many people from reading about finasteride don't see results until 6-12 months so it's best giving it the full year before deciding on different measures.
Guys I'm taking finasteride1mg ED for almost 3 months
I saw some improvement in density initially but now after 3 months I'm shedding like crazy and my hairline has thinned out a lot
Is it the regular finasteride shed or something else
Has anyone faced shedding after 3 months of finasteride??
Any side effects in those 16 years?Wow you have had a true transformation. Amazing.
I am 37 and been on finasteride for 16 years. I dont think it regrew any hair but maybe has been a factor in me maintaining the majority of my hair. I have recession at my temples. I have just started using minoxidil for the first time so its great to see your progress right at this point in time.
I am not sure if I will be able to handle shedding. Hopefully I dont get this side effect. I have never been a shedder in general. The recession has happened through miniaturization but very limited and extremely slow shedding caused it, so slow that never noticed. Only noticed the recession. Hopefully that carries on with this treatment.
You have had great results,congratulations!I hope you enjoy your new hair man.
I have a question for you please:
Do you remember what happed exactely in the month between 5 and 6 months?
I mean did you notice if the new growths were coming in faster or things were coming in with the exact same rythm as growth started at month 4.
It will be very helpful.thnks
Did u notice any decline in results when going down to .5mg finasteride?
