Hi guys, I suffered from hair loss (telogen effluvium and male pattern baldness) since I was 21. And I suffer from seborroic dermatitis since 16 years old. I was able to keep all my hair using minoxiding up to 2016. In 2017 situation became much worse, and seems I can’t recover using only minoxidil. I do not like myself with my bad reciding hairline, so I have to fix the problem ASAP, with hair trasplant, drugs or both.
Trying finasteride + hair transplant (if necessary) + minoxidil
Hair trasplant + minoxidil hoping to maintain results in future
Hair trasplant + minoxidil + natural herbal supllements like saw palmetto always hoping to keep my results.
In a forum regarding hair loss they told me Hair trasplant is useless without finasteride. I know this forum is against propecia, but I would like to know everything about this drug if I consider to try it. My dermatologist said (in his patients) side effects are very rare, and he never saw a post finasteride syndrome.
Is possible to make a well hormonal check before taking it in order to know a % risks I can have from it?
I made an hormonal test. I have a very high testosterone my higher result was over 1053 ng/dl it was even out of normal range, other results were in the range 800-1000. My DHT was between the range 584 (300-1200). I have a strong libido, my mood is good, I have good results in sport, so probably due to my hight T.
I have read on the web people with high T may have lower side effects with finasteride, since high T can compensate lack of DHT. It may be true?
Do anyone know about post finasteride syndrome risk %?
I have also heard people who took drug for 10 or 15 years without issue
