We’ve said this many times here on BaldingBlog. There is no cure for genetic male pattern balding -MPB (androgenic alopecia – AGA). Drugs such as Propecia and Rogain helps slow the hair loss down. For some it even reverses hair loss and slows down the hair loss dramatically. Overall everyone slowly loses their hair as it is pre-programmed in to their genetic make up. Finasteride and Dutasteride work in similar fashion by blocking the DHT hormone but it is not a complete solution. Some think Dutasteride may work better but it is not approved by the FDA and the negative side effects are usually higher than Propecia. The answer to the MPB does not reside solely on Propecia, Dutasteride, or Rogaine. You need to find a good doctor who can give you options and a better explanation on the Master Plan of how to go about addressing your MPB.
