I am taking finpecia ( finasteride) since 45 days but still shedding tons of hair , my hairline and frontal region has got more worse ...although I am using minoxidil since 7 months and I don't know what to do more about hair loss... Cause I am using approved medicines for my hair loss...what to do more ??? is it normal to shed while taking finasteride and how long would it take to have some positives results on my hairline and frontal hair...is there anyone who is using finpecia...

Hey, so bad news.. it takes closer to a year to kick in.
Good news.. it at least works. So don't give up!!!
Also you might be noticing the shedding because minoxidil's potency is wearing off.
If you want less shedding, avoid sun, wash hair less, pick a safe shampoo, and don't stress!
Eventually, look into transplant like I did. Worth it.
