I've been on finasteridw 1mg for a little more than four months now. According to most sources the shedding caused by the meds should slow down by the 4 months mark, which I thought was happening to me a few weeks agi. Starting this week however I noticed a ridiculous increase in loss. I only need to slide my fingers through my hair to have a dozen strands fall out, and I can do this as many times as I want. Thr thing is that these aren't just the shorter, thinner hairs that one should expect to fall out during a fina shed, but longer, thicker strands. My question is, is there a way to determine whether it's a shed caused by the meds or just continued regular hair loss?
