Help, I am a hair loss sufferer and have have been using Propecia for 6 months. I am still experiencing hair shedding. What should I do? Should I stop using Propecia?
Thank you for your inquiry. In my opinion, it is best to give Propecia (finasteride) at least one year before deciding whether or not it is working for you.
You might want to consider adding Rogaine 5% (foam or liquid) to your regime which contains active ingredient minoxodil. When used in combination with Propecia, they are said to have a synergistic effect creating a much greater chance of combating future hair loss. They might even regrow hair.
Adding Nizoral shampoo or Revita shampoo as an adjunct treatment may also prove to be beneficial. Active ingredient ketoconazole 2% is said to be a weak inhibitor of dihydrotestosterone or DHT, the hormone responsible for genetic hair loss.
Remember that there is no hair loss cure and it is possible that hair loss drugs won’t work for you. But using these 3 hair loss treatments combined (often referred to as the “Big 3” on our hair restoration forum) is your best chance at regrowing hair.
