Can someone have shedding after increasing the dose of propecia? I’m 22 years old started losing hair 2.5 years ago, a year ago I started taking proscar pills cut in quarters, hair loss continued but it may have slowed down a little bit, about 3 months ago I started taking proscar pills cut in half, and since then my hair loss increased a lot and I lost hair much faster than before, so could it be shedding from increasing propecia dose?
When finasteride is taken and is effective, it can accelerate the hair cycle and can give you temporary hair loss. We have seen this rarely in people who start the drug and it often disappears in 2-3 months. I would guess (although I have not seen it) that the same phenomenon can be observed if the increased dose was working on you. It should abate in 2-3 months.
