=Cant decide;2323069 It is critical you get on Finasteride ASAP if you can tolerate it.

Good luck.
I have heard that finasteride can have very harmful side effect. Someone on this forum has even gone to the extent of claiming it to be a "poison" .Is that right?

Use Fin only if you see Miniaturisation beyond Norwood 2 ... Its not that Bad.. But it aint goodd...

Minox always fucks your hairline if you have lots of Miniaturisation... Trust me... Use it only if you plan it to use for a long term... Applying it daily is such a pain

I used fin for 3 months, got side affects, stopped and returned to normal in about 1 week.

It's worth a try. I don't believe a lot of the scare stories about permanent affects but that's my opinion.

You should ditch the Advanced Hair Studio Lazer Therapy. That company is universally considered a waste of space.

Laser treatment can be paticularly harmful to your wallet.

Oh, and it doesnt work either.

Hello Cr1tikal,

Matt, got it right. Lasers do not have proven clinical efficacy and your money would be better spent with proven medications or bona fide hair restoration. It will highly unlikely yield the benefit you are looking for. Consulting an HTN surgeon is your best bet. All the Best Michael.
