I’ve been on finasteride for 3.5 years. Without it l would be fully bald by now (25) and it’s allowed me to keep a good amount of hair. Generally doesn’t look like l am suffering from hair loss. A bit thinner on the top but decent overall thickness.
I’ve had enough of taking the drug. I have come off it several times during those 3.5 years and l feel remarkably better off it. I feel more significantly more virile and energetic. When l take Fin my libido drops, brain is foggier and l just don’t feel as good. My face is rounder and less defined as well.
Are there alternatives to Fin that work?

One of the options is to shave your head and get Scalpmicropigmentation (see: https://scalpmicropigmentation.com) which can take on the appearance of a full head of shaved hair and this can be used as a back-stop in the case the other treatments fail to maintain the full look. Oral minoxidil may work in your situation but you will have to be managed by a good doctor. A hair transplant doesn’t require medications, so there are a few choices available to you. With your reported side effects from finasteride, if I were your doctor, I would advise you to get off of the medication.
