i have been through all the entires in the blog and find it quiet useful… here is my problem/question…
I am almost 26 yr old male and experiencing considerable thining. This probably started 7 months ago although it was not that noticeable and there was considerable self denial on my part. My frontal hair are thinning althogh my hairline is maintanied and now even the crown area is thinning considerably. It a very emotional rollercoaster for me and i’m feeling depressed. today I started on propecia and saw palmetto and maybe i ll use nizoral shampoo too. I want to know how long will it take to see a complete stoppage of hairloss and regrowth of new hair ? I may be a BIT late in starting but the thinning started occuring 6 months back and considering that I had a head of full thick hair until october last year… I was in total self denial that my hair was thinnnig. My dermatologist confirned its a case of MPB since my dad started losing his hair in his very late 20s. I am not even married and its very emotionally distressing :(. What are my hopes ?? Also will a sinus surgery(with local IV sedation) cause any further hairloss on me or contibute ?
Please write back. Thanks
With a 7 month history of hair loss, there is sill a possibility of controlled loss or reversal of some or all of the hair loss within the first two years you are on this medication. You must wait this out. I would recommend against taking Saw Palmetto with it, as there may be competition for the DHT enzyme sites between the two medications making the Propecia less effective. Any added stress can impact the rate of hair loss, and sinus surgery is no exception. Still, if you need the sinus surgery, do it and continue to take the Propecia regularly.
