If you are losing hair and want treatment options and you've already seen a doctor the next step is to follow the treatment plan.  If the treatment is not working, you need to go back to your doctor to discuss further options.

I suggest you see an expert there are many options for non invasive improvement if you still have a good amount of healthy hair.  Best, Dr. Emer.

The major effect of Minoxidil and Finasteride(Propecia) is to stop the progression of hair loss.So generally you will not see an increase in the amount of hair and these effects usually take place over 6-12 months.The fact that you had some shedding indicates that the medication is working.You should also consult a reputable Hair Restoration Surgeon to see if you are a candidate for transplants to the hairline and front.
