Is my son to young for propecia? He started loosing his hair at 16, so did my husband. Yes MPB. I have taking him to his derm and she said to start rogaine, but he's not interested in doing so. My question is what type of testing is required to find out if he's done growing. And should I take him to his regular doc to talk about this. He's 6'0 200pds. I would say he's done growing. I know there's a lot of pro and cons about this drug. He still might be to young for it Thanks for any advice.

How old is he? 18 is okay to start I think. But ask a doctor.

See a doc/derm but consider the potential for gyno/sex drive loss - also - once yr on it, theres no coming off.
