    Default Sign hair loss is too aggressive for meds

    Are there any signs of what is meant by aggressive hair loss in the context of medication wont work. I saw Spencers show and he said some very aggresive types of hairloss will be to strong for Propecia etc. How can you tell if this is the case? At first I though maybe age related? then maybe Diffuse thinners but then I think young people and diffuse thinners are the best responders. Anyone have any ideas?

    The only people that probably DEFINATELY won't respond to finasteride are people who are bald and have been that way for a while. If you still have hair, don't have too many bald spots and haven't been fighting hairloss for a while, get on FIN and give yourself a chance.

    Thanks for your reply but im not sure that is true I am like you have no bald patches at all slight recession and I am a diffuse thinner, however I have been on Propecia for 6 months now and my hair has thinned more and more. There are some people that no matter when they start the meds just wont respond because hair loss is just to aggressive

    Most likely Finasteride and Dutasteride are like many other medications that work well for some and has little effects on others. You will not know what catagory you are in unless you try it.
