Default Topical Finasteride

Hey guys I am new here.
I am a 19 year old guy.I noticed my hiar thinning a year back.I tried to ignore it like everyone else.Recently more and more are telling me that i m going bald.

So i decided to do something about this.I consulted a dermatologist .She prescribed to me a solution named Morr-F .It is 5% minoxidil and 0.1% finasteride.

I just wanted to ask will topical finasteride work? And now that i know about its side effects,should i discontinue it and use just minoxidil?

If you really want to keep what you have , I suggest picking up a big bottle of nizoral shampoo , take 1.25mg of finasteride Monday - Wednesday - Friday, and buy a generic version of minox 5% and use this Morning and night . To be honest apply minox twice a day is simple, i use it before i brush my teeth ... takes about a minute each time . They call this "the big 3" . Its the most proven way to battle MPB . Keep checking updates on the forums and learn about the future of hair loss ect. . Take it easy!

Now that I have read about the side-effects of finasteride I am reluctant to use it.
Is topical finasteride as harmful as the tabs?

I buy finasteride from this site (promotional link removed) they've never required a prescription so its convenient to get compared to going to your doctor.

I tried Finasteride 1mg per day.. stopped after a month as soon as my 30 tablets ended.
Though it does give results but i guess my sexual life is more important than my hairs at age 20 !!!
I started using Nizoral 2% last week & using rogaine foam since a month.
Expecting results atleast from the big 2 !!!

great link dr tom

I buy without a prescription the generic 1mg tablets here (Link removed by moderator) and crush it up into my shampoo and it's worked great.

Good study that coincides with my positive experience using the tablets in my shampoo. Will be nice the day they come up with a commercial option but this is where I order it until they do
