I am a 35 year old man who has become very stressed at the thinning of my hair. I always had very thick hair, even into my late twenties, but now, I am receding and thinning in the front and on top. It has become very noticeable due to the way I like to style my hair. (gels, spikey, short messy look) I now use disguisers such as Toppik and Pro-thik.
After reading up on it a lot, I have decided to try finasteride. My question is, can I get a presciption from my general physician? I have also been reading up on HT but the process and cost scare me.
Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Your family doctor certainly can write the Propecia prescription for you.
You indicated that you live in New York — so before jumping into drugs and not really knowing what you are doing, see Dr. Robert Bernstein in Manhattan and let him map out your scalp for miniaturization. Then you will know if your have genetic balding and if the Propecia is helping.
