I visited the doctor last Saturday since I suffer from typical Telogen Effluvium after crash dieting. I have Thinning all over my scalp.

He suggested taking :

Biotin Tablets x 1 Per day

Minoxidil 10 drop morning and at night after a shower

Desowen ( Corticosteroids) 10 Drops morning and night after shower

Sebamed to Shampoo my head every alternate day; AND

HERE IS THE CATCH

Finaster 5mg ONCE A WEEK!

On questioning him he said that it reduces the chances of any form of side effects.

I would like to know as to how effective could this routine be to cure my condition of Telogen Effluvium>


I am eagerly waiting for a reply.


Thanking you,

XYZ.

why not try the standard dose (1-1.25 mg a day) and if you experience sides, try those other dosages?

Why would he recommend a drug for male pattern baldness when you don't have male pattern baldness? He thought it was reduce your side effects from what?

Your doctor doesn't seem to know what he's talking about.

Also, you're not supposed to use minoxidil on a wet scalp. Everything else is fine. Not really necessary, since if you correct the source of the telogen effluvium your hair will grow back on its own, but it's not going to hurt.
