Been using rogaine and propecia for 2 years now and the results have been great, and I feel as my area is a littl. I thought about my applications and on average do about 80-90% of the rogaine applications, and probably about 90-95% of the propecia prescriptions. Do you think this could explain the loss ( however much imagined, I haven’t seen my doctor in a while).
I guess I’m wondering all of this because I’ve done some reading and it seems as one gets older (I’m only 24), the dht overrides the treatment. Is that usually the case, or do you find propecia and rogaine can often sustain the same amount a hair through middle age?
You should probably see the doctor that prescribed you the Propecia to get his take on it. It’s always good to talk with your doctor about results (or lack thereof) from medication he prescribed. Hopefully he made notes about your hair loss the last time you were there so you can compare to your current results.
Many people find that Propecia has been holding off their hair loss for many, many years, but sometimes the genetic balding is stronger than the drug. This is the tug of war type situation. I wouldn’t expect it to occur after only 2 years, but each person will react differently to the medication so I can’t say for sure. At 24 years old, you wouldn’t fall into the “older” category, as your hair loss is likely still early enough to see maximum benefits from the medications.
