I am a 20 yr old male who noticed a large amount of hair coming out while in the shower and during the day; I have also noticed visible miniaturization in the strands that fall out. I am about NW2 now, and I notice slightly less density on the very front of my hair line. At my age, are there side effects to taking Propecia? Are there any other courses of action?
Also, I am in Europe; do you know of my options here? (Is Propecia available/branded under a different name/does it require a proscription?)
The drug Propecia can be taken at any age. There are possible side effects, but they are rare and vary per person. Please review the many, many posts on this blog that discuss Propecia and side effects.
Some countries have not yet allowed the drug in, while others allow it to be sold under a doctor’s guidance and control. I am sure that if you ask your doctor for finasteride, you will find it in the 5mg dose and then would have to cut it into 1/4 dosages to treat hair loss.
