What Do You Think of Minoxidil Long-Term at 68 and What About Finasteride?

 I have been using Minoxidil since 2006, and I seem to have at least maintained my hair at the crown, although there has been some additional loss. I believe this would be, in some part, age-related. I imagine the situation would be worse had I stopped using Minoxidil. At age 68, I have no real complaints. Here is my question: should I continue using the product, even though it is considered off-brand for someone my age?  Also, I did try Propecia for a while, but it had side effects that I did not like, primarily noticeably reduced ejaculate.

It is ok to take Minoxidil at your age. I suspect that the hair is dependent upon it. The decreased ejaculate is a common side effect of finasteride, but most people don’t mind it.
