View Full Version : [21] On Finasteride and Thinking about Minoxidil

04-08-2015, 05:48 PM
Hey all,

I am 21 years old and have been taking finasteride for 10 months now and have seen no improvement, if anything my hair has gotten a little worse. I have a few quwstions:

a) Would you get on minoxidil if you were me? If so, what are the chances it would give me a normal hairline again?
b) Should I expect to see any improvements in the remaining 2 months? After the 12 months?
c) What stage of Norwood would you say I am and is it noticeable?

I am checking back in with my dermatologist at the 12 month mark. So, I kind of feel like maybe I should let him assess the situation and see if he feels minoxidil will be an asset to me or not. Being 21 and losing my hair has been a real challenge and blow to my confidence. I really am hoping I can hold on to my hair in hopes that something new and better is on its way. Thanks everyone, the pictures are in the link below.

Minox will only help, so it would be a good idea to do so. Remember, fin's goal is to slow down hair loss, so even if you lose some hair on fin, you'd be much worse without it!
