propecia at age 45

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone.

 

I'm looking for some advice about the effectiveness of propecia for a 45 year old male. I seem to have some thinning around my crown area which I have only recently noticed. I thought once I got into my 40's I wouldn't have to worry about balding, but, apparently not so! My limited research seems to suggest that propecia isn't as effective for "older guys". Any information from people would be greatly appreciated.

hockeyman,

 

Welcome to our community.

 

Though Propecia is generally less effective in older men - it is still the best defense against further hair loss. Combining Propecia with Rogaine is said to have a synergistic effect and therefore may work much better in combination than either as a stand alone.
