Hey, I saw your picture about the thinning taking place on sides of your head, above and in front of the ears. I Developed the same problem rapidly after starting propecia 6 months ago. My sides looks exactly like yours. I was curious if this got worse in your case, as I'm wondering myself if it is going to stop, or continue until there is no hair there left.
If you carry your own insurance card, which I’m sure you do, you don’t have to tell you parents you’re visiting the doctor. If you choose to see a hair transplant surgeon who provides free consultations you will not need to use your insurance.
I can’t give you an answer about your GP’s willingness to prescribe Proscar. If he’s someone you know well, he just might do it.
You should always carry your insurance information when see a doctor. If it’s a free consultation than you won’t need it, but if your plan on seeing your GP or family doctor I’m sure they're going to want to charge you for the visit.
Why would you need your parents to be there? You’re over 18 right?
I am not sure where you live, but we offer free consultations and you would get a written prescription at that time. Maybe find a HT dr in your area and see if they offer the same thing or any dermatologist could see you and determine whether you are a good candidate for medical therapy (Propecia). Let me know if you need any recommendations. GOOD LUCK! PS- don't buy any of the stuff they sell online.
