I made a terrible mistake and need advice on what to do now. I used finasteride for about two years, and got fantastic regrowth. I became afraid of side effects, stopped using the drug about last year, and have now lost all my gains, and possibly more. Is it still worth it for me to jump back on the drug after being off for a year? Is it still possible that I will regrow the hair as I did during my first stint on finasteride?
My pattern is more of a diffuse pattern with no bald spots, but extensive thinning. 26 years old here.
Going back on the drug may help, but I would doubt that it will bring back all of the gains you had before. Because of your youth, you have a better chance than most men at getting benefits from Propecia. Let this be a lesson for those who take the drug so that they know the impact of stopping it.
