I'm 34 and starting to notice my hair is getting a lot thinner. I've been looking at several of the recommended products but its a bit of a minefield out there. So can any give me some advise on the following questions.

Propecia anyone used it without side affects?
Anyone got any success with natural treatments or applications?
Saw Palmetto any good?

Seeing a doctor is key when considering what to do about your hair loss. Beware of natural treatments sold on the internet. Propecia is known to be the best medication for stopping or slowing the progression of hair loss.

The most commonly known meds to help amongst the hairloss community are:
Minoxodil (foam is getting good feedback) and also the main weapon is Propecia /Proscar.

Research them and see the difference.

In breif - Minox is a regrowth agent - its not going to stop loss. Propecia/Proscar is a DHT inhibitor. They are the same drug finesteride. Propecia is 1mg and Proscar 5 mg.

Cut Proscar into 5th's and you have propecia. Propecia is expensive - Proscar isn't ;)
