    I think whatever they had on the website - including the claims of low risks and underestemated side effects - it all can be used as evidence in the court of law. They're trying to reduce responsibility.. but I don't think pulling down the website will help them much..

    Also, I strongly believe their website must have been flooded with complaints of damaged people - also something they couldn't hide or deal with.

    Hey all. Figured I'd give an update. Managed to take my mind off my hair for a few days and it felt good.

    I scheduled a consultation with a specialist on friday. I've pretty much talked myself into going for propecia(along with the others) if that is what the doctor recommends.

    Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction. I'll continue to give updates through the process.

    Just got back from specialist. He looked at my hair for about 5 seconds, took a couple pictures, and sold me some Propecia.

    Not really the attentiveness and information I was hoping for, but whatever.

    Sadly even the medical industry don't take hair loss very seriously. That's why this forum exists, I guess.

    Good luck

    Thanks.

    I feel ok, at the end of the day, I got a proven medicine and I'm catching this thing pretty early on. So my outlook is good, just going to hope those dreaded side effects don't hit me.

    See, I think that's crap. I don't understand physicians anymore. These days I think about becoming one just so there's at least one person that seems to care more. Was there any discussion? Did they care or notice your anxiety levels about your hair?

    No mention of any tests whatsoever, or even inform you those options exist if you feel that you'd like as much information as possible? I don't know about the rest of you but I'm so detail oriented when it comes to my body I want every blood, urine, hair, and technology test available that I can afford. The fact that they aren't even discussing miniaturization tests with either you or me during our specialist visits is pissing me off. I shouldn't have to learn what that test is through a forum, the hair specialist should let you know that exists for the sake of your full knowledge and the best possible diagnoses. There's literally millions of symptoms that correlate to just about every medical illness imaginable, and hair loss is a symptom of probably 500,000 of them. So yeah, maybe a few tests should be in order other than just a quick glance for '5 seconds' before diagnosing someone with a permanent health issue (be it physical or mental or in hair loss...both).

    In any case, if you've decided to go forth with propecia mnx, i'm looking forward to seeing how it goes and wish you NO side effects because god knows I'm so sick of side effects from my meds.

    Tell me about it, felt very disappointed with the appointment.

    Thanks for the good wishes, I'll keep some updates going. All things said, I feel like I'm doing my best to address this problem and I am optimistic that things will improve.

    It's a matter of perspective. Now when I look at my hair, I see it as something that will be improving not getting worse, and since it is early on, it helps ease the mind a lot.

    If you go ahead with your second opinion with an expert as I think you should, hopefully he shows a little more concern and attentiveness to your situation. Also, whichever path you end up taking, I hope it works well for you also.

    Feel free to message me anytime you want to talk about it. Otherwise I may be on here a little less as I am trying really hard to be positive, and I cannot do that thinking about my hair all the time.
