Hello Together I have said several times: Finasteride is not a miracle cure, it maintains my status and has strengthened my minimalized hair. Where the hair is completely gone (crown) there is also no new growth, where there is no hair = no new hair. I am actually an opponent of daily medication. Yes, there are drugs that are necessary, but most of the time these drugs are used for a few days or weeks. Finasteride is a medicine that you take daily. If you want to delay baldness for many years you have to take it continuously. I think it's anything but healthy to stuff your body with medication. Every medicine will have consequences after years of abuse. There are no healthy drugs. Look; I have the bald gene in my body, in the long run I will be 100% bald, a Norwood 5 or 6 is my future. Fact is: You can't outsmart your genetic traits in the long run. And a very important point for me: Life is so short, I'm already thinking how many hours, weeks I've wasted thinking about hair loss.
