Hi,

just to give potential Propecia consumers and us an idea how good Propecia works, would you post very quick, what results you have experienced with propecia...

..maybe this has been done before, but anyway the more people post, the higher is the accuracy of this tiny study...

Thanks,
Ingo

Worked for me.

Started taking Proscar around 1997. Still taking it currently, but at lower dosage (every other day. Sometimes every 3 days)

I had very slow hair growth over the 10 year period which is much better than the rapid hair loss I was having prior to using it.

Been on it for 1yr & experienced some of the side effects but they subsided when I dropped the dosage to EOD. No regrowth but may have slowed down hair loss.

Ingo,

Good poll question.

I believe Propecia has helped me maintain the hair directly below my crown though I do not believe I've experienced any additional hair growth from it.

Pretty sure it has halted loss in my crown and the areas directly below the crown, though I really have only experienced very minor hair loss in that region to begin with.

I still don't fully get why propecia (and rogaine) do jack for the frontal 1/3rd...so lame.

Finasteride since 1999. No more hair loss and thicker hair, but I also use minoxidil

You have to stay on it, most of the hairs you may have lost were from shedding. They will return and hopefuly even stronger. Propecia can cause shedding at first, ironically, it means you may be a good responder.

Personally, I am not sure it has done very much for me, but I am 48 and should have been on it in my 20s. I may have missed the boat.
