Hey everyone, I was just listening to old broadcasts of The Bald Truth and Spencer mentioned how he's been taking Proscar as opposed to Propecia. He also said that Proscar has 5 times the dosage of finasteride as Propecia. I've been taking Propecia for 2 years and although it has slowed down my hair loss, it hasn't completely stopped it. Since Spencer has had such totally awesome results (even substantial hair regrowth!) with Proscar, I thought that maybe I should give it a try. However, I doubt my current dermatologist would prescribe me that much finasteride, especially since she's cautioned me several times about overdoing it with the Propecia dosage. Even though I've been experiencing the side effects with Propecia, if I could achieve substantial regrowth with Proscar, then I think that it could be worth it. So where would I go about getting a Proscar prescription, especially here in the U.S.? I'm not sure if your average dermatologist would prescribe that much finasteride so that's why I'm asking.
