Observing Thinning of Hairs and Receding Frontal Hairs?

I am observing thinning of hairs on top part of my head and my frontal hairs are also receding. Please suggest me a tried and trusted procedure, and does minoxidil and finasteride have any side effects, that I could be worrisome?

Finasteride works for keeping the hair that you have in the crown of your head. It does not work for frontal her loss. In my experience minoxidil does not get the kind of results to justify its use. Eventually you will need either the Fleming-Mayer flap or hair transplants.
