View Full Version : Propecia, Oily Scalp...

Hey Guys, I started propecia 1.5 months ago. I've noticied my scalp/hair is very oily.

1) Is this common for the majority?

2) I've seen some posters relate it to Hypoandrogenicity. Should I be concerned? I still seem to be shedding.

Some initial shedding is relatively common. I have only had a few patients who complained of an oily scalp/ hair that only occurred after starting Propecia.
