    Heya all. I am 3+ weeks in on finasteride and 4 on minoxidil and I feel like I am shedding like mad. Close to a hundred good hairs fall out from my thinning front and vertex a day, atleast those are the ones I see. I know it is probably a normal amount, but it kind of comes out all at once which is eery. Some of the hairs looked like they were new, ie they were an inch or so long and tapered at the end.

    Should I attribute this to finasteride, minoxidil or both? How bad are typical minoxidil and/or finasteride sheds for people and how long do they last?

    My dutasteride/min shed was pretty bad. The volume of my front suddenly went limp and turnted into complete sh*t. Luckily it didn't last too long. About 2 weeks in my case.
