    This is the common story around here. People notice hair loss, and come here to find out what they can do to stop it. They read horror stories about side effects, and they try to find any way they can to avoid side effects instead of doing anything they can to fix the problem they came here to solve in the first place. Instead of avoiding sides the only thing they end up avoiding is fixing their hair.

    Take the oral finasteride at the recommended 1mg dose. If you get sides, lower the dose and/or frequency.





    And if you can tolerate and have the patience for topical application, why not add minoxidil into the mix.

    I never had it tested, but the stuff has grown and maintained my hair, I use this in my mixture.

    15% Minoxidil
    0.1% Finesteride
    5% Azelaic Acid
    0.25% Progesterone
    0.025% Tretinoin
    0.1% Hydocortisone
