Default Need advice on starting medication

Ola

Hair loss victimized me from the age of 20. But within last one year it was a disaster. People started pointing out this problem to me.

After thinking a lot, I ordered lipogaine today from amazon. I m in Alberta, Canada so probably take few days before it get to me.

I am posting some pics here so that I can see and post the progress. Please give me any advice which u think can be helpful for me. Also, wonder which Norwood level I am...

Is it possible to load multiple pics ?

Between Norwood 4 and 4A heading towards a 5A.

You have a few great guys in Canada - Hasson & Wong and Rahal, and the donor area looks good.

Usual advice applies:

Try the big 3 for 6-9 months: (Propecia, Minoxidil, Nizoral Shampoo)

...and do plenty of research into HTs. There are a lot of crooks out there. In this day and age there is no need to have a bad HT provided you do your homework.

I completely agree with Matt. Talk to a doctor with experience of these treatments.

I like the term "the big 3"!
