  1. No idea. I had been on Propecia for 6 years, Proscar for around 2 years and then hadn't taken any for a few months and I dove into Aindeem 1mg daily for about 3 months and my hair was great. All I can tell you is I am fine with Propecia and Proscar but this Aindeem stuff continues to cause problems.
  2. I've had success combating sides with Test Boost pills from Amazon and megabol InhAR blocker tablets. God knows what that's doing to my body but it makes things work as they should, at least. It's very effective against Proscar but since I've gone back to using my batch of Aindeem it hasn't done much. For me, these Aindeem pills are the devil.
  3. I came from UK to New York - you're lucky to have so many great options
  4. How much was 1,000 grafts with Dr Reddy, if you don't mind me asking?
  5. Anyone know a UK source other than minoxidil max?
  6. I went with Feller at 23 and had a very good result - it's a conservative hair line / mid-scalp that has kept plenty of grafts in reserve for future loss. H&W are my first choice for when I eventually get my crown sorted out. The best advice for a young person is to be content for a conservative 'mature' hair line....you can always add to it later on if the rest of your hair holds up
  7. Based on your age and how good the rest of your hair looks, I think it's a good time to start consulting with doctors about it
  8. I was 23 when I had my HT but it was a conservative new hair line and I'd been on the meds for 2 years. 8 years later it's continued to be a good decision thankfully, hoping to get the crown addressed in 5 years or so. Be cautious and don't rush in to anything - you only have one chance to get it right. You don't know how much hair you'll lose in the next 10 years. You can always add to a conservative hair line later on. I'd say my new hair line is halfway between a V and a U when pushed back - certainly no temples or anything drastic like that. You'd be surprised how good that is i
  9. Still in the research stage myself, but since I've not been able to 100% reverse the effects I want to try to get off the oral fin if possible.
  10. Sorry to hear that... Have you considered topical fin? I'm looking into this fin/minox combo that you rub into your scalp once a day...no sides
  11. Money. Belgravia was charging (if I remember rightly) around £2k a year for propecia and 12.5% minoxidil cream. Then I switched to rogaine foam and proscar for a fraction of the cost....then I found aindeem which was cheaper and didn't require cutting the pill. I was happy with the results but a year later I realised my fatigue, numbness and low drive all started with aindeem. Should have just stuck with the Proscar. Seems minoxidilmax requires some further research....
