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?
