View Full Version : What if Propecia doesn't work?

If it doesn't work what are the alternatives, I've heard of DUT and spiro but not researched it.

Has anyone not responded to Fin?

Stand by me -

The odds are in your favour that you will get a favourable result as the statistics indicate this. However, there will always be a minority who will be poor / non responders. I would be very sceptical about Dutasteride as it is currently unapproved for treating hair loss so proceed with caution. I don't hear a great deal about Sprio but I think you would be better off with Minoxidil. Rogaine Foam is the best example of this. I noticed this posting today on William Rassman's site - Baldingblog. I normally don't visit this site anymore as I find his views very dogmatic at times. The article shows pictures of a guy finding success between the combined use of laser therapy and minoxidil. I feel that as an adjunct therapy, LLLT is worth a look as I have also had some success with it. Many feel otherwise and I am not looking to start a debate as I stumbled into one on the forum some time ago which acheived nothing. Anyway, take a look


Bear in mind, Rassman is one of the biggest vocal sceptics concerning laser therapy. I appreciate that this is only one patient and that it is far from a conclusive endorsement. Conventional wisdom is to stick with propecia and or minoxidil. This is what I also advise but I'm always interested in a back up option.

Best of luck to you!
