After using topical minoxidil for about 6 months, I switched to 1mg finasteride daily due to palpitation problems. It has been more than 1 year in total. The shedding has decreased a lot (thank God) but there is no new hair growth from the shedding areas. Bald areas are covered with feather-like hair but there is no progress. I am 44 years old and now I am seriously considering hair transplantation. Do you think it can be improved with medication or should I turn to transplantation?
If you have developed a Personalized Master Plan with your doctor and you are over 25 without effective medical treatment and more progressive balding, then maybe it is time to have a discussion with a good hair transplant doctor who cares for his patients above making a ‘transplant sale.’
