Hey guys whats up??
I registered in this forum in the beginning of july when i started to feel desperate about hair loss.
After discussing with my dermatologist, and prescribed me propecia. I finally bought it. 2 Months and searching and today i went and bought me 1 pack of Propecia. But still didn't pop that pill.Plus i got a shampoo similar to nizoral 2% but its different brand. i hope its the same.
Any way my final decision is should i take it daily as recommended or should i take 1 pill every other day or .5 every day. Please help me with this decision so i can start taking it.

everyone responds differently so no one here can give you advice on what dose or how often you should take propecia. in general, it's recommended you take 1mg propecia/daily or 1.25mg finasteride/daily. if you're scared of side effects then by all means take it every other day or every 3rd day. we don't have any secret information on how your personal body will respond to finasteride. it's your decision :)

A good plan would be to take .5 mg daily for 1-2 months. If you are experiencing no side effects then at that time you could increase dosage one mg daily.
