Hello I am 22 yrs old I am a norwood II almost but not quite a norwood III. Anyways I have been on finasteride 1.25 a day for about 7 months the first 3 months i shed like crazy but read that was common and also good reaction to the drug after 3 months my hair was thicker defenatly a difference and very few hairs fell out like 10 a day that lasted for about a month and a half then suddenly I started shedding a lot again almost as much as in the begining is this normal to have more than 1 cycle of shedding or does this mean the drug has stopped working? i thought I was reacting well to it concidering it almost stopped my shedding completetly, but now i have no idea whats going on. Has anyone had a similar experience??
