Not sure which country you're in but if you do get on Fin cheapest way is to get 5mg generic proscar and cut it. My pharmacy price matches Walmart here in the states so I 4 months supply for $9.

    1mg 3 times a week - is that effective?

    Well I tried to post some links to another forum about the topic but it blocked the url. The forum is hair restoration network .com There are a lot of negative views of that forum on this site, but as most are transplant patients almost all of them are on fin so you can get some good feedback about it. Type "1 mg 3times a week fin propecia" and "propecia" with the poster as spex and you will get some good posts about reduced dosage.

    If you're consistent, Finasteride and Rogaine/or Minoxidil Foam, would do your hair pretty good.

    My hair certainly has not gotten worse while on Finasteride. I wouldn't say it has gotten better, but it stopped my hair loss.

    I just hope it holds out until better treatments are out.

    I am not on fin, so I guess ths is a positive sign...just using toco 8, organic shampoos, and now niz.

    If say I did get FUE, would I avoid scarring?

    It's gone back just a liiiiiiiiiiitle bit, it actually isn't really that noticeable. You have really thick hair. I have a receding hairline and thinning hair at the top, plus AA.

    Yeahyeahyeah, or i'm just gonna call you Triple-Y, name is too long. Anyway, your hair looks good, and I see you're lifting your hair to show your hairline. Last time I was doing that, I was a teenager. I'd wish to have enough hair on top, that I could cover my receded hairline.

    Hey, thanks everyone.

    Yeah noticable when I lift it up. I think I will put off taking propecia for now, given it is extremely slow pace MPB - if it is. Hopefully better treatments will be out in a few years.

    I keep my hair short now, can't really grow it out anymore because it clumps up in the middle.

    I feel for you patiently waiting, I mean I am fretting over a tiny bit of recession - must be difficult for you.

    How old are you and was your hairline recession similar to mine?
