Finasteride: 3 Months and still hair is falling out?

If you are speaking of finasteride 5mg you usually will not see any positive effects for the medication for 3 to 4 months. If you believe it is causing a problem , you should consult your local hair physician for examination.

Shock loss

Unfortunately, shock loss is not always prevented with the drug finasteride. The younger you are, the greater the risk

Genetic hair loss for men can be treated with Propecia (Finasteride 1mg) but it does not mean it is a "cure".

Progressive #hairloss

finistrade can slow down the progression of hair loss but it will not stop it. If you are shedding more, you need to follow up with your doctor for adding other treatment options.
