This might be too early for an update since I’ve only been taking them for a week. But I just wanted to add my experience if it can be helpful, since side effects for these make themselves known within a week of starting treatments.
I started taking 0.5mg of oral Finasteride tablets and 2.5mg oral Minoxidil tablets every morning since last week.
Currently have no side effects to speak of except for a mild sore right arm around lunch time that went away after a couple hours. I think that was from the “swelling” that Minoxidil might sometimes cause. My wife says it might not be even connected.
This may be a very effective treatment for men with balding. I rarely prescribe both oral drugs on the same patient but I have recently been doing so.
