Dear Dr. Rassman,
I am a 17 year old and have been losing my hair for about a year and a half. I started losing it while I was taking Accutane, and it hasn’t stopped since. I went to a dermatologist and he said that it was MPB, and he recommended I take Propecia. Is there anything else I could take or use that you would recommend, such as Revivogen or the LaserComb instead, as I am frightened of the possible side effects, considering that my cousin took Propecia and had sexual side effects?
If you have MPB, then Propecia is the appropriate medication for you. Although the other things MAY have value (I am not saying they do), Propecia is in your best interest in that it WILL have value to you. Don’t gamble with your hair, for unlike a slot machine where you can always win more money, the hair gamble is irreversible; you can’t go out there and win more.
