I've been through all the shedding threads available, but wanted share my experience, and will post updates with progress or lack thereof. I started finasteride 1mg daily July, 2018. Almost a year in, and I achieved great results, noticed at the end of October, don't know if I shed when starting since already was buzzing my head. I'm probably a Norwood 2.5, but my hair quality was garbage, hairline was rapidly going, and diffuse on the top. So I decided to give finasteride a shot. My hair went from garbage, to regrowing hairline, basically turned into a healthy looking mature Norwood 2.5, I was really astounded! Starting the end of May, starting shedding, now I would have sheds pre treatment, but the amount of shedding is startling. I buzzed the dome again, actually like the look, but I believe the shedding has stopped. Now I believe right around baseline, but the hair that didn't shed is healthier, so I take that as a positive. So for all you shedders at 1 year in after a great response - I will update progress good or bad. I find it hard to believe with such a great response, the drug to just stop, so stay strong folks!!!
