Hello, I am not sure what to do now.
I am a 20-year-old male currently suffering with AGA. I have frontal and crown diffuse thinning. I was on (brand name) Finasteride for about a year, but my hair loss continued. I then switched to (brand name) Dutasteride. No sides and am currently on 1 gram a day rather than 0.5mg. Been on it for nearly 10 months.
All this, yet my hair continues to fall. I can’t use Minoxidil because I am required to look very tidy every day for work related matters. Minox causes a lot of dandruff and makes what’s left of my hair feel coarse and dry.
What can I do? I have been reading up on a famous hair transplant doctor and he mentions how he prescribed a very low dose of around 2.5 – 5mg of Loniten to his patients, and it apparently was very successful. I know of the dangers that come with this drug, though I am prepared to test the waters for a trial with a low dose of around 2mg. This is all I know of that can help. If you know anything else to help I would appreciate it!
You could use topical Minoxidil at night only after a shower, and then shower it off during the daytime. That is as effective as twice a day use. Oral Minoxidil as you suggest might also work, and in many countries it is the drug of choice.
