  1. Cool, Thanks for sharing!! Looking forward to updates..
  2. Thanks for the reply ForeverLacey. Has Dutasteride helped regrow any of the shed hairs you lost while on fin?
  3. Hey everybody, So I have been on finasteride for about 18 months. After 8 months I had a big shed or what I thought was a shed. Has anybody seen any improvent or stablisation leading up to/after 2 years on the drug or is has anyone gone through a "thinner before thicker" period after 1 year plus? Basically I'm not sure if my hairloss is progressing. My mid scalp and hairline have continued to get worse and my crown seems somewhat unchanged/slightly worse. I also have been using minoxidil for 4 years and nizoral as well.. Thanks!!!!
  4. 200 for the consultation and I think like 60 for the year supply.
  5. Yea it was pretty expensive, it was pretty much a full transplant consultation. I think it was like €200.
  6. I got m prescription from HRBR clinic in Blackrock in Dublin. I didn't go to my local doc because I wanted to talk with people who deal with the drug every day and ask questions about side effects etc. I then got a year supply from the Blackrock clinic.
  7. I think starting early is everything with meds. I wish I did when I first noticed my hairloss but I waited nearly 4 years and lost a lot of ground.
  8. 14 months on fin, no sides other than some ball ache at first(which could be because I slipped and fell in work) Have you experienced much shedding through out the years?
  9. Yeah the liquid can be annoying sometimes. If I could find a cheap generic foam minoxodil is consider using it. With my fin experience so far I wish I had started 5/6 years ago. I've been lucky that my hairloss had been relatively slow.
  10. I've been using the liquid pretty much everyday for 3-4 years. I think I am going through a shed at the minute. Every time I run my hand through my hair like alot of hairs come out. It's a bummer because my hair improved a lot for the 1st 7 months then it shed, now it seems to have bounced back a bit and started shedding again. I am going To stick with the treatments anyway.Has any one experienced this?
  11. I thought so. I was hoping that the hair would thicken some more over the next year, what can you do though. Thanks for the replies!!
  12. Has anyone seen/had any more regrowth after a year or is what you see after one year all you can expect?
  13. Hey guys, I have learned a lot from people sharing their experiences on this forum and forums like it. I thought I would share my experience so far as it may help people in future in a similar position. I am either nwII or nwIII based of some online consultations I have done. My hair line started receding when I was 21(my crown has always been ok, Im 28 now) My dad, grandads and most of my uncles have hair loss to some extent, some more than others. My first attempt to tackle hair loss was pretty lame. I read a few posts and wikipedia about what to do, read about finasteride and its possi
