Hey guys,

am taking half dosage of propecia (.5mg) since two weeks and am not sure if am going through shedding or is just normal hairloss and propecia is not working :confused::confused:.

I just want to let you know there is not any kind of side effects and i still get morning erection, maybe 2 days i didnt which i think is normal. Maybe a decrease in libido but its all psychological thing and i can tell.

I dont know what is going with my hair now but i feel am losing more hair than before the treatment. Am using shampoo similar to nizoral and biotin supplement.

I have few questions //:)
should i increase the dosage now or wait. ??
is the 0.5 mg working or not ?

I hope i get some answers thanks

Im pretty sure you wont no if it is working after only 2 weeks. They say keep on it for at least 8 months before you will know. Personally its taken 13 months for me to notice decrease in shedding and maybe slight improvement in hair quality. But I have dense medium/thick hair to begin with (about 120 units/cm).

I think a guy on here or on hair transplant network/ blog had similar experience, he calls himself Latinlotus.

Take pictures every month or two, try not to obsess and count hairs shedding. Then in 1 year or so compare pictures and maybe number of hairs shed.

But you must give it at least 8 months (which for me, I was still shedding a good amount during shampoo and wash at 8 months, but kept with it and seems to of helped)
