FINASTERIDE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Androgenetic Alopecia: “I’ll try keep this review as brief as possible. I’m 23 years old from the UK and my hair has been thinning for around three years now. I used minoxidil for around two years before I decided to try Finasteride (1mg). I was on the medication for 7 months before I decided to stop so here my main two summary points.1) Did it work? Yes and no. Compared to no medication, the rate at which my hair fell out declined by around 70% which was encouraging however in the 7 months that I was on it I did not experience any regrowth. So it was a partial success. 2) Why did I stop? I would of liked to continue for a full 12 months but after 2-3 months on the medication I noticed that my sperm was becoming more and more runny and clear and the amount I produced had declined significantly by month 7. As a young man this is really worrying and I didn’t want to take risks with my fertility over my hair line so I decided to stop taking it.”

For Androgenetic Alopecia: “I started losing hair fast at my early twenties. I started using Minoxidil 13 years ago and Finasteride 11 years ago. Being a scientist, I experimented with dosage and even stopped taking either of them for a while in order to confirm their effects.My full regime is Minoxidil once a day, at night; Finasteride 1.25mg twice a week, mostly plant based diet (to ensure that I get the full spectrum of nutrition naturally) and moderate exercise.At the age of 44, I have significantly more more hair now than I had when I was 25.I was worried about possible side effects when I started taking Finasteride however I did not observe any.”

For Androgenetic Alopecia: “Let me start off by saying, I was dead against taking it for 5 years. Receded to the point iIwent for a hair transplant 4 years later. (I’m 25 from UK.) The fear mongering on youtube/google is insane, I followed my surgeons advice. I spoke to three different gp’s and they’re not for it. 3 months in, no side effects. I’m not saying they don’t exist. Touch wood I’m ok in the future. I don’t wash out as much hair as I used to. It is tough for me to predict how much its growing as I’ve used it in conjunction with a hair transplant, minoxidil & laser comb therapy. These are not easy side effects to contemplate about. I feel your frustration reading these reviews from one person saying it destroyed there life to another saying its not as bad as made out. I take finasteride 5mg and cut into fifths to get my 1mg daily which cost me £5 at a pharmacy in the uk. Don’t buy from boots or superdrug! theyre charging a fortune. Until you take the plunge these reviews can only help you so much my friend.”

Propecia (finasteride) for Androgenetic Alopecia: “I moved to the Philippines about a year ago, and 6 months ago found out the pharmacies sell it over the counter so I bought every box they had. For me I’ve had no side effects in the 6 months I’ve been using. Right now I can’t tell if it’s regrowing hair, but I can say with a 100% certainty that it’s all but stopped massive amounts of hair loss everyday. For that reason alone I give it high marks. I’ll give propecia a perfect score once I start seeing hair gain. I recommend.”

For Androgenetic Alopecia: “I’m 31 and in the early stages of thinning at the crown. I began to see good results after 12 weeks despite only taking a half daily dose. No side effects at all. I think there is a lot of negative hysteria about this drug. Having said that, the standard 1mg dose might be stronger than necessary.”
