View Full Version : 4.5 Month update - propecia

Just thought I would update.

- 39 years old
- 6 months rogaine foam 2 times a day
- 4.5 months propecia
- itching started about 1.5 years ago
- hair was solid 1 year ago

So here is my update

I posted 2 weeks ago and had a massive shed with extreme itching - I was freaking out - hair was coming out every time I would run my hands though my hair (I would get 5 or 6 hairs every time ). I have been to a transplant surgeon - dermatologist - primary physician and all have confirmed I have about a 50 percent density loss. Hair looks much worse now then when I began but I figured if I don't give it a shot I will be bald anyway 😔 But on the upside within the last 2 weeks the itching has finally stopped about 90 percent and there is definitely a reduction in shedding. Hair still looks bad but it gives me hope. I will continue on the propecia and continue to update here to try and help those looking for answers. I would love to hear any similar situations - hopefully with positive outcomes👍

Sound good if you ask me! Trying to stay positive is the hardest part, for me anyway.. Maybe include some pictures? I'm curious

I have been on propecia now for about 9.5 months and at this point I am unsure what is going on. My hair seems to have stabilized but I have not had any regrowth - perhaps some slight thickening. One thing for sure is that my scalp no longer itches constantly - some days I may have a slight itch but nothing like it used to be. I have had no side effects at all so I will continue on and see what happens. Questions ?? Ask away :

after great time of using rogaine and propecia simultaneously, you have hairloss that stabilized and slight regrowth, Do you have picture before treatment and after it, if you dont mind sharing of course
