View Full Version : Thinking of switching from Propecia to Provillus
07-28-2013, 04:13 PM
Briefly NW2/3 hairline thinning into NW5/6, 26 with heavy thinning on crown YO Male
Been on propecia about two years now and luckily had no side effects and at least have maintained most my hair and a fraction thicker in places, How ever im thinking of switching to provillus, I have seen some good reviews and pictures of this, plus the price difference is huge for me, Im looking for more regrowth but do not realy want to use any foam or topical solutions.
Any one have any advice for me should i switch? can / should i use both together or even just for a short period or jst swap one day?
any advice would be appreciated

Hi joely, i ve used provillus, it did not work for me. i was on it, about 18 months
and it did nothing. infact, i lossed more hair than ever. you would be better stopping on propecia, are go to doctors and get finasteride off him. just think youre goin down the wrong road. how long you been on propecia??

Maybe try Dutasteride?

try proscar 5mg and cut it, into 5 peices, it will certanly be alot cheeper than propecia, youve been on. allso you should had some minoxidil with your current, programe, you know ts trial and error, if youve been on propecia, for 2 years, you should try minoxidil, and you may make alot, of gain. plus youve got to give it time, for any treatment, to work for you.
i personly use
2 finasteride 5mg
3 nizarol shampoo 2% 3 time a week
4 hair laser 3 times a week
5 biotin tablets
6 just started retin a
im 55 and been loosing my hair, since i was 18, ive tryed every thing there is on the market, ive still got alot of hair left, but thinning alot,
but the programe, what i am on now, seems to be working for me..
youve got to to it, at all angles if you want to, keep your hair
anyway good luck, but never give up.

Thanks for the advice people! Is proscar basically the same as propecia? Should i just swap on day or do i need a period of taking both?

Hi joely, where you from united states. i would get proscar. and then stop takeing, propecia and yes it does the same as propecia. and its cheeper, if you buy it. i come from uk, and i get it from my doctors, on proscription. i was on propecia ayear ago, but could not afford it, any longer.

2 things work right now - minox and finasteride. Your stupid using anything else without these because nothing else works.
