New member - Diffuse thinner losing ground on finasteride

Post by Hyzer » 1 week ago

Hello everyone I am new here just thought I would give a short summary of myself and have a few questions.

I am 33 from the UK, my hair has always been a bit thin but as my dad is bald and my mother’s brothers are all bald I’ve know since I was a teenager that I would 99% be going bald someday.

I started thinning a bit in my mid twenties so I ordered finasteride and have been taking them which seemed to stop the loss but since about 30 I tried halving my tablets to save money and taking 0.25mg a day.

Fast forwards to now at 33 I’m definitely noticing my hair on top is so flat, thin, weak, not really noticeable to others but easily is to me. So I’ve gone back to taking 1mg finasteride a day to hopefully stop the thinning. Finasteride is all I have ever used.

Few questions I have if I may. I haven’t looked on hairloss treatments/forums online for over 6-7 years.
Is there any new treatments that are successful? Is finasteride still the main way to stop balding?
I read briefly today that dutasteride once a week with finasteride can bring good results?
What would you guys recommend for thinning hair to maybe thicken it up or try regrow at all?

Would really appreciate some help my brothers,
Many thanks.

Welcome @Hyzer.

There are no new treatments that are effective and available now. However, I can give you some suggestions on your current regimen.

1) If 0.25 mg was not working for you, you could try and see if 0.50 mg us enough.

2) You could buy liquid minoxidil 5%, and apply 1 ml of it once a day.

That's a good option in my opinion. Try it, wait three months, then consider dutasteride or RU58841.

Add regaine, non negotiable. Nizoral as well but to be honest I'm not convinced it does anything apart from good scalp health, doesn't hurt though and it's cheap.

There’s nothing new.

I’d say keep taking the finasteride at 1mg, and add minoxidil and nizoral, than reassess in 6 months.
