Subject: Finasteride: no results after 6 months
In reply to: Delores 's message, "Generic drug finasteride" on 05:45:53 03/03/10 Wed

Hello everyone, I'm 50 and started to lose my hairline in my late 20's. By 40 my crown was almost completely bald and becoming impossible to comb-over. I have the same baldness pattern as my father but he seems to have the same or a little more hair than I. I used Minoxidil on & off for over 10 years and only saw my continued hair-loss slowing down a bit.

I have been taking Finesteride for six months now and has not given me any negative side-effects at all. I take my pill every morning with breakfast.

After 2 months of Finisteride I noticed 4 new coarse hairs (where there was only one thin hair) coming from the same spot where my hairline (center forehead) used to be 25 years earlier, but I have noticed absolutely NO hair regain since. I also started to take saw palmetto twice per day, and Minoxidil cost 5x as much here in Europe so I haven't added that to the stack (yet).

Question 1: Is there any noticeable added benefit in hair regrowth by adding saw palmetto (or saw palmetto plus Minoxidil) to Finesteride?
Question 2: With all this being said do I have any reason to suspect this whole expensive hair-regrowth programme is likely not going to work, stop the prescription, and save 70.CHF ($60.USD) per month?
