    Default question about propecia.

    I had a question about finasteride. After my HT with Dr. Wong he prescribed 1.25mg of proscar every monday, wednesday, and friday, with none on the weekends. I was curious how or why he did not have me take it everyday. It seems everyone i read about on these forums seems to take it everyday. Does anyone else here take it only 3 times a week? My HT was all in the front. I do have some thinning in the crown....but... it isnt something i was extremely worried about yet. As a matter of fact i didnt have him put any hairs in my crown. He did offer to put some back there but i wanted it all up in the front where it was bad. I was a NW3.

    Some people dose it as Dr Wong advised you to as this minimizes the chance of side effects. Unless you have taken the drug before, experienced side effects and informed Dr Wong of this, I'd have to guess that the doctor consistently recommends that dose to his patients for that reason, and believes that it is high enough for the drug to work as intended. Lots of people would agree with him.
    Maybe a rep will confirm this. You could always contact his people for reassurance.

    Did you ever call and ask Dr. Wong if that was his standand dosing for all patients? I would be interested to hear how he feels that is working for his patients. Most doctors would prefer to get the same results using as little medication as necessary.

    Hey, I'm not a doctor, but I think the last post...from a doctor...might have answered your question. Anyway, I too was wondering what your doctor said about the dose..if you wouldn't mind stating...
    Thanks.

    Hi guys, i've been on propecia for 5 weeks now and i'm having difficulty sleeping. I use to always have naps and slept like a log, but finding it difficult nowadays. Maybe it's just stress and not the propecia, but i was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced sleep issues with Finasteride ? Thanks.
