I would not hold back on adjunct treatments. You will be able to tell if finasteride min is working anyway, those drugs are so well known as well. I can definitely say there is ample research to say that 2% ketoconazole and a caffeine+ other serum will benefit your hair without any downside, and they are not expensive either.Thanks, Ill look into this. I will say that I am not inclined to add things into my regimen simply because I want to know what is working and what is not (giving some time for minoxidil). If its not finasteride/min/AAs I doubt that it will be strong enough to hold my hairline. What do you think?
Anyways, thank you for the response!
If finasteride is your only actual hair protective measure (minoxidil is not), and your dad is norwood 4 at 30, you need more treatments. Finasteride is not going to handle that burden long term.
