  1. Thanks for the response. I’m aware that around 150 hairs a day is normal but I’m not sure how much hair I’m currently losing. It feels like I’m shedding a lot. Note that I’ve previously had a hair transplant and I wasn’t on Finasteride. Do you think the 1mg every other day is not enough to at least reduce my hair loss? Or is what’s happening normal and I should give it a couple more months before deciding to increase my dosage? Thanks!
  2. Hey everyone, I've been on Finasteride (Propecia) for the past 3.5-4 months (1 mg every other day). Thankfully, no noticeable side effects. However, I've noticed that I'm still experiencing considerable shedding. I remember 2 weeks-1 month after starting the medication, the shedding significantly decreased before it increased again a couple of weeks later. I feel like I'm losing a lot of hair every day and this has been for the past month or two - most of the hairs are short ones, shorter than my hair on top (might be from the donor because I keep it shorter?). Any feedback on to wh
  3. Hello, I've tried to message a couple of members regarding this topic but I felt I'd get a clearer answer if I publicly post my question. Can Finasteride affect the health of children? To be clearer, let's say someone has been on Finasteride for a couple of years and decided to try for a child. Can the fact that he has been on Finasteride for quite some time affect the health of his child assuming his partner was able to get pregnant? (I know it's advisable to stop while trying for a child and that pregnant woman or those who are planning to get pregnant should not handle the p
  4. Hi Melvin, I've been on Minoxidil for the past 9-10 years and I don't think I've ever experienced that. I only use Minoxidil once a day at night before going to bed.
  5. Hey guys, Thanks for the replies. I finally started Finasteride after 5 years of hesitation (and a lot of lost hair). I've been on 0.5 mg of Propecia every other day (MWF) for the past 2 weeks. Just today in the morning, I woke up and felt really dizzy. This went on for the next 2 hours and then everything subsided. It's the first time I've experienced this since I started. Should I be concerned? Anyone had a similar story?
  6. Hello everyone, I've read that even the hair in the donor area can be affected by DHT and get miniaturized/thinner. I would like to know whether: 1) Taking finasteride would help thicken and improve the hair in the donor area 2) Let's assume that someone has had a hair transplant and the hair on the transplanted area (previously found on the donor area) is miniaturized due to the reason above. Is it logical to assume that finasteride would help thicken the transplanted hair on top?
  7. Thanks! How long have you been on finasteride and have you experienced any side effects? I'm mainly concerned about establishing a family and having children while being on it, so any relevant experiences would really help!
  8. Hello everyone, I was wondering whether anyone has experienced good results taking 0.5 mg of finasteride on MWF. Please let me know what you think!
  9. I'll be trying Proscar and cutting it into 1 mg tablets starting next week. Have you had any noticeable side effects over the years? I'm approaching 30 and concerned about the side effects, especially when it comes to having children etc. I know the rule of thumb is 1 mg everyday but I would also like to ask whether I can start with 0.5 mg every other day (MWF). Do you think this is effective? Or should I go for 1 mg every other day? I really appreciate the feedback.
  10. How long have you been on Finasteride? And have you experienced any side effects? If it's Proscar by Merck, do you suggest that I go for it instead of Propecia? The cost savings are significant. I was prescribed Finasteride prior to my first transplant but did not end up using it. I consulted with another clinic for my second procedure (via a video call as well as images of my hair) and they also said that I should start Finasteride. Is there anything else in specific I need to check before proceeding?
  11. Hello, I've been thinking about taking Finasteride for the past 6 years and I haven't had the guts to even try it due to the stories I've read, mainly about the irreversible side effects. I am currently looking to sit for a second hair transplant and willing to give Finasteride a try since I've lost a lot of hair (almost a NW6). Where I live, there's a local brand selling Finasteride in 5 mg tablets so I would have to cut it into 4-5 pieces. For those who have tried both or who have researched both, is there any difference in the efficacy between both forms of Finasteride? Tha
  12. Does anyone have any experience or feedback with respect to the above?

  14. @Melvin-Moderator Convincing enough! I also kindly ask for your opinion on the Minoxidil part. @Niko1 I agree with you - price should not be the deciding factor. I'm looking to opt for the Comprehensive and Exclusive Package which is 120 Rs/graft and it is within my budget. However, if I want to go for the Premium Package, then there are a lot of other world-class doctors who are much closer to where I live and offer the same price. Going to India would be a long trip but I'm willing to do it for Eugenix as they are producing great results. Which package did you choose? Are you on any me
  15. @Melvin-Moderator Thanks for your feedback. I also wanted to know your opinion about manual vs. motorized FUE. Do you think it makes that much of a difference as to which method I choose? The reason why I mentioned HDC and HLC are because they do manual FUE. I would also like to know whether applying Minoxidil 5% to my transplanted hairline and midscalp does make a difference or does it do more harm than good? I currently only apply it to the crown. @Niko1 Hi Niko1, I think I am in the exact same situation as you are. I had the chance to look at your results and they are quite impressiv
