I'm currently 25 and always had thick hair. until about over a year ago i started gradually losing hair on the sides of my front I noticed recently that im losing hair rapidly on my crown area.
I went to go see [L=dr. bernstein]http://www.bernsteinmedical.com[/L]Dr. Bernstein in nyc and he suggested i use rogaine (minodixil) and finasteride. I'm scared of taking it because of the shedding and that it will accelerate my hairloss (and the sexual disfunction). he looked at me for 10 seconds, told me i had MPB and charged me $175.
I just dont know if it has to do with stress at work rather than MBP. I started working 60-70 hrs a week at a new job since last summer.
I am currently using

i also used 1 bottle of perfect image shampoo in dec 2011.
Ive been scared to wash my hair, that I wash it every 3-4 days now..
i have a few questions.
how severe was the shedding? And if I was to use finasteride/rogaine, would I have to keep using it for the rest of my life to keep the hair?
What kind of foods should I concentrate on eating?
And is sleeping/exercise/working out a huge factor?
does drinking beer/alcohol 1-2 times a week affect hairloss?
I want to try to fight this if possible through supplements or eating habits. I been eating vegetables and fish more. I was also wondering if Alcepin shampoo was a good bet?
Sorry for the messy post. I've been unable to concentrate doing anything recently and thought I needed help from people on this forum..if you guys could provide any tips at all, that would be appreciated.
I started to take fin 1.25mg a day and niz1%/biotin conditioner every 3 days since 5/1.
I had nutache maybe 1-2 days overall and just began to REALLY shed yesterday..
I knew the shed was eventually going to happen but what Im curious about is I never had so much thin fine hair all around before my hairloss. Did fin cause me to grow weak hair?
