    UK, I am sorry finasteride screwed you up. I really am. I am not going to give you the usual crap that I give you anti fin guys, because what has happened to you is serious stuff and can happen to anyone. I also agree that the treatment options available are garbage. I hate the fact that I have to take this crap for the rest of my life. I hate drugs of all types and would rarely even use aspirin.

    But like I mentioned in a thread earlier today, if you were to approach me 15 years ago (when I still had a good amount of hair), and told me the only thing that could possibly save my hair was fin, I would say I would rather go bald. Today, being faced with a reflection that I am unsatisfied with, I feel I have no other choice but to at least give fin a try and see what it can do for me. Hopefully I don't have the same issues that you have had.

    I hear what you are saying though. If I had sexual sides I would be one pissed off guy too.

    Basically what PatientlyWaiting said. I think hairloss is something very personal. I don't like people intruding on my hairloss 'problem', so unless they would specifically ask me for my opinion I would never comment on theirs.

    I happen to have two new collegues at work who are 21 and 22 years old, who I get along with very well, and coincidently they both have severe thinning at the back of their head (you know the 'monk' haircut). I haven't commented on it and I probably never will. They probably have family members who made them aware of it, reminding them again will just be hurtful.

    If he asks for help I will give it. If not, I will keep my mouth shut. The majority have spoken.

    If a guy who was fighting hair loss came up to me and gave me advice, I would not be offended, but that is just me.

    This industry is absolute garbage, there's literally NOTHING going on at the moment, since Aderans died everything has gone quiet, just a bit of news from Follica but everything has gone to shit.

    2015 was the year that everyone was saying we will have a better treatment, 2010 I remember everyone was raving about Acell etc, 5 years are nearly up, only 10 months left and look... we have been let down AGAIN.

    It will forever be like this, its always "5 years away", to the newcomers to this site, DONT expect there to be a better treatment in 5 years, DONT make our mistake.

    This is a damn shame, but it's the truth. I have gone back and started listening to The Bald Truth on youtube. They have shows since 2011 where they mention various treatments that are "a couple of years away" or sooner. 2014 and still nothing.

    Some people around here get pissed because I defend/recommend fin. I have admitted many times that it sucks, but it is the only thing we have besides minox which isn't the greatest treatment. Take those away and we pretty much have nothing but snake oil. Which sadly many people are still trying. I bet the coworker that I have mentioned in this thread has tried some kind of snake oil. Looks like he said screw it and finally buzzed his hair.

    I remember that thread you started. Surprised that guy still works there since you said he is a poor performer.
    His performance is not his problem

    I wish I took before pictures of me when I started the big 3. I'm 15 months out and there it's a big difference. I would casual say to person X "Hey man, check this out! 15 months on the Big 3. Pretty amazing stuff".

    I told my trainer I would be off 2 weeks for my HT. Told HER about the big 3 and she was skeptical. I forward her the link to Bernstein Medical of before and after from medication.

He has the Internet, if he's worried about it there is a plethora of publicly available information for him to find on his own.

    The fact the guy buzzed his head shows that he knows he has a problem and he's dealt with it .
    Don't bring it up
    Taking the " big 3 " as people like to say isn't going to bring his hair back to the way it was .

    After reading the point of view from all you guys, I just decided to leave it alone. If he asks me for info, I will let him know what I know. Other wise I won't bring it up. Who knows, him buzzing his head might be his way of just saying "screw it" and moving on with this life.
