yeah you gotta take finasteride or dutasteride. sorry to hear about your experience with it, hopefully it doesn’t happen with meMinoxidil on its own is not going to stop hair loss. Oral min is junk in my opinion. Did it for 9 months woke up looking like I'd been kicked in the face half a dozen times.
Nope, stopped hairloss maybe. But with dutasteride, RU, min, and micro-needling works well for me. I thought doing all orals dutasteride, spironolactone, min, would be supper easy, convenient, and grow alot of hair but it didn't.& still you couldn’t stop loss or regrow any hair??
What dosage are you taking?I switched from topical to oral about 7months ago after talking to my hair transplant surgeon. I've noticed a significant increase in hair growth inc facial and body hair.
The side effects are definitely worth weighing up but it's going to be quite individual. I've heard of some people not taking to it at all but this seems to be a minority. I've had absolutely no side effects.
Make your skin look like old man, make you hairy like ape.Is this true that OM ages you or not?
Man i am on oral minoxidil since 1 year and my hands and feet skin aged like crazy.Make your skin look like old man, make you hairy like ape.
There are plenty of studies showing it depletes collagen, however it stimulates elastin production. I got hit on both ends because I was taking OM+eplerenone. Minoxidil depletes collagen, while eplerenone inhibits both. Perhaps if I had only taken OM it wouldn't have been as noticeable. Regardless, the amount of body hair growth is too much. I was already as hairy as a man can be without looking gross.
Even topical minoxidil gives me noticeable collagen depletion on my face and hands.
Is there any actual proof of this? Or just anecdotal?Make your skin look like old man, make you hairy like ape.
Can't you negate this by taking collagen supps?There are plenty of studies showing it depletes collagen
Of what, body hair or collagen depletion? There are lots of studies confirming both.Is there any actual proof of this? Or just anecdotal?
There are creams you can use to moisturise skin.
I don't think you can negate it, but you can combat it with collagen supplements and tretinoinCan't you negate this by taking collagen supps?
