Hey doc, This site is great. Anyway, been on propecia about 8 months. Hair isnt really any better def a little worse. So what do you think a person like myself, chances are of seeing any improvement in the next 4 or so months?
Did you see a doctor before you started Propecia? Did you get a miniaturization study to see how much of your hair was thinning (miniaturized)? Did you document the process by taking pictures before you started the medication? These are some of the basic things I would look for if a patient of mine states they are continuing to lose hair while on Propecia.
Propecia is not a magic pill and it does not cure or stop hair loss completely. It just may be that your natural (genetic) hair loss is rapidly progressing and Propecia cannot stop it completely. Perhaps without Propecia you may be bald by now. But all of this, I am merely guessing.
I would follow up with your doctor to see what your progress has been. I really cannot predict your future, but if all baseline tests are done, you can have an objective idea of where you are going. At the least start the baseline measurements now (better late than never) and then see what happens in 6-12 months if you stay on the medication.
