Was recently prescribed this after being on finasteride 1.25mg for 3 years ( at best a slowdown of hair-loss) and was told that their new formula had no reported sides (personally didn't have sides on oral) as it stays locally and binds to the scalp. Also claimed that anecdotally there have been patients who responded very well to it compared to when they previously were on the tablet, and overall its just a better option. They showed me come pictures of patients on it, and the results looked very good. One patient who was a diffuse thinner (like myself) went from sparse frontal third coverage to almost full coverage, with little to no signs of thinning. Heres a link to a study they reference on their site: https://3pfizs243h34c09mn6s0ul69-wp...mic-of-p-3074-finateride-topical-solution.pdf the article states that the topical finasteride reduces scalp DHT by 40% more than the oral in the 7-day period. So my question to users of H&W's topical, have you had any success when switching to the topical? I'll be keeping a personal record of my results in the coming months, but I'm conflicted as to either take them both at once and see if indeed the topical adds anything ( as I've already been on the tablet for 3 years) or completely stop using the oral and switch to topical.
