    What is your point then? Topical Finasteride has showcased less to none side-effects. If you are worried about those, then that is the only way for you to get hold of your hair loss.

    First time I took Finasteride I had bouts of extreme anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. I stopped taking it and in the second time, I had none of those side effects as now I was aware of how the drug works on your mental health. You need to be prepared to take this drug.

    Somebody, have you ever searched for Minoxidil alternatives? Like pumpkin seed oil or saw palmetto?

    In my option they should learn about preventive measures in late teens. I was 24 when I first started with Propecia.

    Unfortunatly, I have never tried Regenepure. In my country it's expensive to import it. About Revita and Foilgain, both brands have given value for investment. Which one to chosse depends on scalp conditions. Revita are fat shampoo, and Foligain is light. For me both have definetly helped with scalp inflammation. I can add that Foligan is quit good to reduce dandruff (not the same as minoxidil flakes).

    Happy new year and best wishes.

    No, I haven't. After I started with minoxidil and dermaroller combination it gave results and I didn't serch for other options.

    I wonder how this dermarolling method can be used if someone is on topical finasteride and concerned about the topical finasteride going systemic.

    One possibility could be to do it separate times a day. For ex I apply minoxidil once a day at evening. So it should be possible to do topical finasteride application in morning. Other suggestions?

    Hi Somebody! Your YT videos are great!
    Where do you buy Propecia? It seems that there is no way I can order it from my country, I live in Serbia in Europe...
    Also, did you had any significant loss on the crown before starting treatments ?

    Yes, once a day since 2013. (I apply about 1.5 ml each time). I apply few hours before sleep.

    Thanks for video feedback. I buy Propecia in my country. It is a prescription drug. Basically it's the same as Finasteride.
    I have a diffuse thinning. It means that I loss hair all over my scalp without any treatment.

    Thank yoi for answering me. Do you think there is any website where I can order Propecia online from Europe?
    Also, as I can't find perilla leaves I think I am going to try nettle leaves and borage oils plis biotin and lysine.

    I think it's risky to order Propecia online. Better to find Finasterid, if only alternativ getting it is online. The initiative to sell fake Propecia is much greater then finasteride.

    Nettle leaves won't give same effect. Still okay to take them but don't expect inflammatory benefits.

    I dermaroll daily.

    Hi all,

    Few things:
    • I said that I would give a short update at the end of last year, but in retrospect I think that it is not a good idea as I started using minoxidil only on the 13th of November. I think I should at least give it 3 months, so will update mid February instead. Also, I lost the baseline pics (phone died...) but I have pics 2-3 weeks in that should be basically the same.
    • Otherwise in terms of results I don't think it changed a lot: some days I think my hair got better, some other I think it got worse. So again need to wait.
    • After my bad experience with the dermaroller at first, I took a break for a few weeks and went back to it recently (on the days I shampoo, so 2 times a week, gently on the hairline/front). When I roll lightly, wait a few minutes before applying minoxidil, it does not sting like it used to.
    • I managed to order Allermin (perilla leaves) from that website: https://ssl.verkkoapteekki.fi/index.php . I should receive them early next week. As I did not receive anything yet, I can not tell you for sure if they are legit, but if anybody living in europe is interested, have a look.
    Cheers,
    Mazaza

    EDIT: I received my Allermin boxes! So if interested check the above website!

    Im on propecia for 8 months now and my hairline has gotten from almost perfect to a nw2 in the last 2 months. It keeps receding everyday. Anyone experienced the same thing and got regrowth at the hairline ? I think this is my first big shedding.
    Really need some replies. Im getting very depressed..

    Almost perfect? Why did you start with propecia then?

    Man @Somebody I have been doing your daily rolling for absorption method for about 3 months now and my hair basically looks no different than before I started. Maybe a few extra wispy looking hairs but nothing that seems to be cosmetically relevant. Results with this method are supposed to happen pretty quickly, no?

    I may have just already maxed out my regrowth potential on the big 3 prior to starting. I'm trying to decide if it's worth me continuing on with this for another few months and see if anything worthwhile comes of it. I don't really want to continue exposing my scalp to needles every day if I'm getting no benefit from it
