Here is a summary of my journey: Winter 2018- I notice first signs of very minor hair shedding in shower Summer 2018- I go on minoxidil which shed my hair which I somewhat recovered from a few months later. Hair loss is still very minor at this point. I don't think I even had Any miniaturization, just minor shedding Fall 2018- I start finasteride to "maintain hair" at norwood 1-1.5. i immediately start shedding hundreds and hundreds of hairs a day all over scalp. And scalp is inflamed. No crown loss before and after 3 months I develop a nice bald patch on the crown. I decided to stick with it for 6 months from the advice of you idiots telling me it is normal to shed 300 terminal hairs a day with a "hairloss drug" dropped a whole norwood on finasteride and lost tons of hair density. May 2019- I finally give up on finasteride. Heavy Shedding subsides but i still shed about a hundred hairs a day. Summer 2019- I was using minoxidil only. Because I was shedding less my hair slightly thickened after quitting finasteride. I maintained decent hair for 4 or 5 months. Winter 2019/2020- I start shedding massive amounts of hair again on a minoxidil only regimine. Dropping me another norwood. So now I am about a norwood 3 with low density. In a span of about 18 months going from norwood 1. Both temples were wiped out this winter. And I also have a burning tingly scalp itch wherever my hair is thinning now. Should I try dutasteride or spironoctalone or is this just a lost cause seeing how bad my body upregulated itself from finasteride.
