I had a surgery some years ago for gynecomastia and am now considering a hair transplant. The doctor tells me that if I take Finasteride, I can prevent shock hair loss. Will this cause my gynecomastia to return? If you had Gynecomastia (breast lumps or breast enlargement in men) from a non-Finasteride related cause, then taking
Yes, doctors are shy because of class action law suits brought on by men claiming that the doctors prescription of Finasteride made them impotent. Many young men seem to be hopping on that bandwagon but it seems that most of these suits are being tossed out. I still prescribe it with proper waivers signed.
I think people like you need to say it the way it is more frequently. We live in a now generation. If you had a more advanced balding pattern and no sexual side effect from Finasteride, I suspect you would be saying the same thing. Update: 20m. 7 months on Fin 1mg. from tressless
For my patients who want to take a reduced dose of Finasteride, I generally tell my patients to take either 1/4 of a pill (0.25 mg/day) or one pill every four days. Do that for three weeks and then increase it to one pill every three days for three weeks, then one pill every two days and stay on this. This
From my 27 years in this business and the 20 or so years since Finasteride has been on the market, I have never seen this drug cause hairline recession. I have seen patients develop recession when the drug did not work well as the battle to control hair loss is lost.

I have seen this even in good stores when they purchase off-brands of genetic finasteride. Hair loss from Finasteride withdrawal may become permanent so act quickly
My biggest fear before I start Fin is that I wont be able to have a child afterwards, I don’t plan on being on it any longer than 4 years. My doctor told me about the risk in decreased sperm count but I didn’t ask her what percentage of men actually get it and what
No, Finasteride will not help the grafts grow. Finasteride works to accomplish two objectives: (1) slows or stops the balding process or (2) prevents shock loss in men under 50 who have a hair transplant. The likeliness of shock loss for men decreases with age. It is worse for men in their 20s and less so
Thinning neck hair occurs as a genetic trait. When some men get older, they lose their neck hair. This can’t be stopped with Finasteride.
I’m 29 and I was on Propecia & Minoxodil for almost eight years and I could save my hair till now but recently I am experiencing severe side effect from Propecia so I decided to stop it.
