Dude, this forum is NOT for certain people. You're not here for them, or for any one else. **** people. Why do you care? No matter where you go, people are people. Some are nice, most are dickheads.

Really? You think bob was a victim in this situation?

I think people are entitled to their opinions. What they're not entitled to do is harass, bully, mock and express homophobic opinions. That shit is not cool and he's leaving because he got called out on it. Typical coward.

He did apologise however, so that's something.

Greetings, this is my first post. I have severe thinning and loss in the vertex.

I don't know or care about trolling on this topic, but it seems to be a very serious issue.
Honestly, I just started Propecia a week ago, but flushed all the pills down the tubes this morning. I dug deep into reserching about Propecia / "Finesteride." I have seen pictures of guys who grew breasts because of it, I have heard a doctor say he will never again prescribe it because of permanent E.D. and other serious side-effects and patient suicides as a result. I spent a good week, trying to get past the levels of fear mongers and deceptive advertising. There are just too many cases of severe side effects. Some people take it for years with little or no problems, but I'd much rather be bald than experience any of that. It's just too risky.
So I'm taking 450 mg of Saw Palmetto everyday in lieu of Propecia, as well as Nioxin shampoo, and Rogaine twice a day.
has anyone seen benefits from Saw Palmetto?

Scorpion, genetic hair loss DOES NOT MEAN shit genetics overall.... for all we know your body is getting rid of hair on purpose in order to protect us from something

Be a man, swallow that shit.
I AM a man.
I won't feel so much like it if my dick deflates.
You're one of the lucky ones with no sides. It can't all be B.S.

I'd seriously like to get to the bottom of the issue as I'll take the ddamn things if it doesn't mess me up.

wow bob that is not cool dude.. who the hell mocks and insults someone because of their health problems? I personally disagree with chrisis on a lot of things but I have never mocked him or made fun of him for his problems because that is really low!

uhhh also, dont you guys think its strange that bob quits the forum, then next day there is a brand new member posting in this same thread who sounds an awful lot like bob? something to think about....

Saw palmetto and Nioxin won't do much for male-pattern hair loss, if anything.
Minoxidil does help though.
If you only quit finasteride because of what you read on the internet, my honest advice is to go back on it. If you experience sides you can quit. But without a proven DHT reduction drug (right now we only have finasteride and dutasteride), you're fighting a real uphill battle. That said, you're the only one who can weigh the pros and cons and make this decision for yourself. Not everyone cares as much about hair as I do.

As an aside, I would consider getting a prescription for 2% ketoconazole shampoo. It won't save your hair on its own but it can be a very useful supporting treatment.
