    Drady1on1,
    Yes I believe finasteride is the generic form of propecia. I'm a little confused on how the doctor said it could be better than propecia. As for the toppik just curiously is that a spray?
    Just my opinion is Im really cosidering a transplant. I'm just unsure of who to go to. I know there is finance plans to help with cost.

    FYI, regrowth is usually on the crown and the temples/hairline do not respond as well.
    My goal is to keep my current hair. But that is exactly what she said.
    Ill keep posting my results. Just to let everybody know whats happenin.

    How long have you been on propecia?

    She said finasterid has diffrent ingridients and that the way they make it is diffrent from propecia. She also said it would be better because of the harm to our bodies. Somehow propecia is stronger and more influencial to the body.

    I hear a lot of things about sideeffects, pains and success of this medication. But Finasterid is cheaper and for me that is why i will go for this one.

    Toppik is a can full of small peaces of artificial hair that sticks to youre hair and gives the impression of a full head of hair. It works like a charm.
    I couldnt believe what it did to me. Good stuff.
    Although i hate covering up. Its kinda like puttin on make up.

    i might show it to you some time.
