Am I on the right regimen: Finasteride 1mg: 2.5 months & 10% Minoxidil once daily: 1.5 months? I still have reasonable hair.

WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT FINASTERIDE TO AT LEAST HALT MY SHEDDING? Average time taken by finasteride to show visible results in your clinical experience?

Dosage of hair meds

Finasteride is usually 1mg once a day with respect to maintaining/ treating hair loss.  Over the counter minoxidil topical is usually 5% applied to scalp twice a day or just at night.  Higher percentages could be prescribed by your doctors and depending on the other medications you are using your doctor may decide to recommend it once a day. Treatment length is per the doctor or could be indefinite.
