  1. Looks great! Any specific reason you chose Konior over Nadimi given that her waitlist is shorter?
  2. Was using topical minoxidil for past 6+ years without noticeable side effects. However, for past few months I’ve noticed dizziness when standing from a seated or lying position. At first it took me a while to figure out it was the minoxidil, I thought I was developing cardiac failure lol. Took a trial off minox and noticed my dizziness went away and my runs increased dramatically in just a few days! I’m sure it was having subtle cardiac effects for a while I just didn’t realize it! 😂😭
  3. Anyone try topical finasteride that is not formulated with minoxidil? I get side effects from both oral fin and topical minox so looking for last ditch treatments! 😭
  4. Interesting theory...I think TRT in general is risky, there are a lot of things we don't know about long term effects like prostate cancer and heart disease especially in younger men. Not to mention infertility and once you start on it your body becomes highly dependent on it (ie testes stop working) and it may be difficult to stop using it. Another route that I was potentially interested in was taking something like Clomid, an oral medication which in men does raise overall testosterone without your body becoming dependent on it. I wonder if this could be a way to also counteract the side effects a lot of us get with finasteride.
  5. I wonder if this could be alopecia areata? Maybe a local steroid injection will help
  6. awesome thank you! do you know by chance where to get these or do you have to ask the compounding pharmacy to specifically make it?
  7. Can you post some pics of your current situation?
  8. Are u getting side effects? Why such a low dose?
  9. Hey guys, I used oral finasteride for approximately seven years and it had great affects during that time on my hair.Unfortunately I slowly started developing side effects and had to discontinue the medication. I switched over to topical 5% liquid Rogaine and have been using that for the past five or six years, but lately have also noticed side effects with this medication (dizziness, rapid heartbeat) . I also tried a brief stint with topical finasteride/Rogaine, but also felt some fatigue and other mild side effects using this medication. I would love to continue using these medications as they have saved my hair, although I can’t deal with the side effects. Is there a way to decrease systemic absorption of applied topicals?
  10. Thanks for the advice...my feeling is if she trained with Dr Konior she is probably safe/good...I couldn’t find any negative results from Dr Konior on this forum
  11. Looks like low density diffusely but may be normal at the 6 month stage..would it give it another few months to thicken up and should look better...also pre-op pics would be helpful
  12. Looks fantastic, it looks like he filled mostly the temporal recession but did not actually lower the hairline. Was this strip surgery? How long did you take off work/how long until it was not noticeable?
