Below is the conversation I had with another reddit user in this post regarding finasteride. I would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding what he said. Is it true?
Me: I’m 7 months with no noticeable improvements. It may take up to 2 years for improvements, but we’ll see
Him: Thats not true the peak at 2 years mark , but thats only if u saw any improvment by 6 month mark
Me: At year 2, almost 20% more saw regrowth according to the FDA-supported study. So yeah…it may take 2 years to notice improvement. Never heard of the 6 month statement. How do you know that?
Him: Lol trust me the brother. I have no reason to let you down. If u got nothing by now. You are not gona get any after. I mean if you are stable be happy.
Me: The research contradicts you
Him: U clearly didnt understand
Me: Please explain then and where you got that info from. I want to learn
Him: There a huge missleading about the fda reaserch. They mention that the the peak of the result were on 2 years mark. But those ppl kept improving since day one up to 2 years. Its not like after 1 year the regrowth start to accure. After 1 hair cycle u should see some results if u respond with regrowth.
My opinion is:
- finasteride may reverse hair loss (rare)
- finasteride may slow hair loss down (common)
- finasteride may stop hair loss (common but you don’t know this unless you stop the drug)
