Iam 22 years old male and my hair has been thinning for about 3 years. I took many medications especially vitamins ( biotine B5, zinc, Durance, Nutri-cap,……….), only the zinc had reduced the hair loss but not the thinning. I used minoxidil 5% but I had an excessive dandruff on my scalp ( even Nizoral didnt eliminate it. I didnt try proprcia since to its sexual sideeffects and others bad feedbacks about sexual disfunctions ( btw my friend had a bad reduction in his libdo and a raise in testesterone)….. Any advice please professor to any alternatives to stop my hair thinning.
Thanks and I appareciate your effort…
Just because your friend had a decreased libido with Propecia, does not mean that you will. If you try it and you don’t like it, you can stop it at any time and the problem will correct in a week or so. It is the BEST approach to hair loss in a young man, and there are no other proven therapies that work as well on young men. Alternatively, you can become bald, but then it you do, transplantation will be your only recourse.
Try it; you might find that Propecia is not a bad experience at all. Very few of my patients tell me that they feel anything at all on the drug. Some reported an increased sex drive. Men are highly suggestive, so if you truly believe that Propecia will reduce your libido, then it might do just that.
