Fao All Proscar Users!

Recommended Posts

Hello, Im new on here.

 

Just wanted to enquire about some of the benefits fo Proscar. I have only been reading this forum for the last couple of days (slightly frustrated as I should have found this a couple of years ago) and come across a few people who use this medication.

 

I am 23 and my hair started receeding when I was about 20. At the mo when my hair is not wet it doesn't look that bad, although I can notice obvious differences even if others cant. All the men in my family are bald so I guess I never really stood a chance, however if I can minimise the loss I will be happy.

 

I've seen the success rate stats of the drug but I would like to ask for opinions on people who actually use it every day. Has it stopped your hair falling out? How long after you started taking it did you notice your hair wasn't receeding any further? Did you have side effects, if so did they go away upon continuous use of the drug? Does the use of alcohol/protein/recreational drugs :ph34r: influence the effectiveness?

 

Like I say, I just want to hear people who've actually used the drug's views and hear your experiences. I think I'll get in touch with Dr Ashcroft for a purchase aslo..

 

Great forum guys, really is.

 

Thanks

welcome badhairday

 

i've been using proscar for 2 1/2 months, no side effects yet, I've also not noticed my hair loss rate slowing either. But it takes 3 months to start working and 6 months before it fully kicks in, I'm hoping to start getting some results really soon. Drinking does not effect proscar and proscar will not effect your drinking. welcome to the board

Hi guys..

 

well.... here are a couple of pics that show what i think is the results of Proscar after about 8 months on my mid section... Proscar is the only thing that I can put this down to... I had an HT with Dr Feller on the 8th of April.. but must stress that no grafts where placed into the area shown in the photos..

 

I have read that continuing improvements can be made upto 2 years... but a already happy with the results now.

 

Another thing I would add is that I have started using Rogaine but only in the past couple of months and only once a day... so I do not put any growth down to this as yet...

 

I did start to take Propicia about 5 years ago.. but only for about a month... stopped taking it as my girlfriend at the time told me I was crazy and not to worry about my hair... I now think that was a VERY big mistake !!

 

Anyway... here are the pics as promised..

Has it stopped your hair falling out?

 

Yes.

 

How long after you started taking it did you notice your hair wasn't receeding any further?

 

I noticed less daily shedding within 2-3 months. My hairline and the the thickness of my hair haven't changed much since I started taking it.

 

Did you have side effects?

 

No.

 

Does the use of alcohol/protein/recreational drugs :ph34r: influence the effectiveness?

 

No. See http://www.propecia.com/finasteride/propec...opecia/faqs.jsp

Firstly tim your photos look brill from here, excellent result!

 

I started to take proscar early this year about 8 months now, after 3 or so months noticed a decrease in shedding also maybe slight improvement in hair quality but this could be down to shorter haircut. I also have had no sides. Basically give it a go and give it at least a year!

 

Good luck AAH

Just received my package from Dr Ashcroft. However, they're pretty small tablet and cutting into 5 is pretty difficult, although cutting into 4 is manageble. Taking a quarter for 4 days then having a day off is alright yes?
