    I use a good amount each time, I do my crown then temples. I usually do stick to a bottle of foam a month but maybe just a bit more.

    I will try as best I can to stick to my routine as it has worked well for me so far but I am realistic enough to know I will lose some ground but hopefully still stay better than I was before jumping on finasteride and Min.

    Ha thanks. I wish I could have a transplant but just don't have the money for it plus I know it doesn't always make things better so will just need to stick with it and maybe in a few years there will be some more advancements in treatment.

    Thanks for your story Scottio. Very encouraging. I was on finasteride before for about 2 years with no noticeable result except maybe maintenance. I quit in January and started regaine twice a day. People have recently started commenting that my hair looks better. Seems to be filling out a bit. Not there yet but I'm about to add back in the finasteride and see where it goes from there. Maybe the two together will somehow work when finasteride alone didn't seem to do much. Glad to see you had so much success.

    Edit: also, amazing that you got your hairline back so well. That really gives me hope.

    Amazing results, my hair alot worse than yours so naturally i have nowhere near your results, still not at the 6 month mark though. Given the time i would say minoxidil was doing most of the heavy lifting at first. I can't use minoxidil due to sides but im hoping finasteride will help me regrow some of my crown back, although i think i may not have caught it in time.

    So you got sides.
    Is it fair to say that 100% of people who use finasteride get sides, and not the 3% that Merck claim. I've not seen anyone on here say they did not get sides. And then you have people who say things like '' I did not get sides, no morning wood now, and semen is low and water, some brain fog but I've not had any side'' Yes someone on here said that, LIKE WTF.

    I got sides but tbh they were very minimum and even maybe it was all in my head like the itchy nipples which lasted a few weeks then disappeared.

    I've never had any sides other than that really but I do believe the sides rates are much higher than 3% but for me it's was worth it because it gave me back my hair which was seriously on it's way out.

    This man has a fetish with the dark circles or and minoxidil sides lol..... news flash you don’t get sides from minoxidil

    By the way great results OP I’ve been following this success from the start.. I’ve been getting some good regrowth myself not as good as yours but I’m still only just gone past month 3... I’m hoping by Xmas my crown will be fully filled in

    holy shit! I just looked at your latest pic and your hair looks fuckin awesome! And you had WAY more hairloss than me when you started. Your hair has had such a transformation and in your earlier pics too. From 6 months. I am having an up and down experience with it. i am about 3.5 months on minoxidil - been also using finasteride for many years. Initially I was thinking it was working and bulking up my hair but now I am wondering whether that was placebo and nothing has changed. I am again unhappy with how my hair looks. Guess I will need to wait a full 6 months and see how things are then

    Minoxodil no good for me, gives me a rash and hives instantly so I can't use it. Never tired finasteride, but I did obtain a prescription for it just last week so I might go ahead and try it. I fully expect sides, as like I said it's bull crap that 3% get sides. I know 100% I will get sides, not 3%, 100%

    You don't know for sure, I have around 5 friends now on Finasteride (generic) and not one of them has reported anything bar myself (itchy nipples).

    I can only go by my own and people I know experiences. You will however be more likely to experience sides if you go into this thinking the worst will happen because it's then in the mind and the mind is a powerful thing. I'm not so sure you should start this if you feel this way.

    Yes still using Kirkland 5% foam twice daily (well I do miss a few nights here and there).

    I've not added anything else to my routine so it's basically still the 1mg finasteride, minoxl and nizoral.

    When you started to get results, was it gradual over time or did it happen really fast? That is, results that are noticeable at a glance, not inspecting the scalp under light.

    Gradual really, nothing notable changed for a few months but maybe by month 4 I could notice a big difference.
