    Default Starting my Finasteride journey!

    Hi all.

    I am new to this forum. I am 41 years old, and have been dealing with some thinning in the crown and front when I turned 36. Been using Minixodil (generic) for 3 years and Nizoral shampoo (once a week) Included a dermaroller into that regime a couple of years ago. I found I grew back some hair, and it sustained the hair. Last year, the front (on one side) began miniaturizing/diffusing. I continued with the minoxidil and dermarolling, and it didn't change. It didn't get better or worse. Recently (yesterday) I picked up 5mg Finasteride tablets (cutting them into 4 pieces) and am taking 1.25mg every other day. I read it takes 3 to 6 months to start seeing any results (if any), so when I hit the 3 month mark I will post some comparison pics. I will also continue with the Minoxidil and dermaroller. Wish me luck as I head into unchartered waters...
