    You’re going to go through the shed regardless of whether or not you’re in fina.
    Just ride it out. If you have Androgenetic Alopecia it’s probably a good idea to get on fina though.

    Usually lasts from anywhere between 3 weeks and a month or two. Just ride the wave man, I know it’s really frightening. If it helps, get a shorter hair cut so that the regrowth catches up faster.

    So hopefully I only have 1 month left of shedding see I thought should I wait to see the regrowth of rogaine before starting finasteride personally would you start it at the same time ?

    Good luck.
    The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll know if It’s a good drug for you. Try to be patient, it can take up to a year to see results.

    My regimen hasn’t been updated for a while but I’ll give you the brief rundown.
    Minoxidil is obvious - it’s a growth stim. I use the oral stuff because it works better and I use the topical stuff for extra insurance, and because I mix other things into it.
    Diane35 is a birth control pill containing 35mcg ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) and 2mg cyptoterone acetate. It is often used as a combined treatment for androgen issues because it has anti-androgenic properties. I also don’t produce my own estrogen because I went through menopause at 21, so it’s hormone replacement for me. Estrogen is really really good for hair, and some of the guys in the forum are even using it.
    Avodart i take for the same reasons you would take finasteride. It blocks dht, but it’s a stronger version of finasteride.
    I use another topical antiandrogen but we think it might be fake so I can’t comment on that yet.
    Stemoxydine is another growth stimulant which works in a different way to minoxidil. Just an add-in to see if it will help with my overall density.
    I also take a bunch of vitamins for collagen production, antioxidants and minerals.
    I use a dermastamp 1 x a week because wounding is shown in studies to promote new follicle growth.

    What vitamins do you suggest for collagen? Collagen production seems to be the holy grail of anti-aging research but theres's not much good info on it.
