    Good interview Spex and somewhat topical for me .

    I'm early 50's and shortly about to undergo a HT . I'm at 6 on the NW scale . I've tried to find out what I can on taking Propecia for the more mature gent , but can't find a great deal out there . Some studies seem to suggest that at 40 plus , the benefits of Propecia may not be that great , or variable in result . Given my age and current NW level , it may be that I am at , or nearing , my maximum hair loss . This is just a guess really , as only time will tell.

    My question , therefore , in a nutshell - would it be worth me giving Propecia a go ?

    Thanks also for your solid advice on the numerous hair loss topics .

    Hi,
    I dont honestly feel age is an issue. The medication (5mg) came about due to it being prescribed for older men with enlarged prostates. A side effect was their hair grew back so merk looked into it in greater depth and realised 1mg finasteride is all that is required. Despite being high on the NW scale it might well be advisable to consider finasteride in order to help strengthen the sides and back and keep the sides at top high and prevent them from dropping any further.

    Info on finasteride can be found on my website also if this helps: http://spexhair.com/propecia-information/

    I personally get a prescription for 5mg and cut it into 5ths = 1mg and cheap.

    Feel free to email me if i can help further in anyway.

    Regards
    Spex
