Hi. I have been taking propecia for about 3 years now. After the end of first year, the results were significant and I could see 20% regrowth. But then it started receeding by month 13-14. then I got on to propecia and Minoxidil. About 7-8 months of this combination, I had gained significant hair back. And it was easily my peak. But now I have not changed anything and it is receeding and i am shedding like crazy for the past 2-3 months. Also, my sex drive has increased and I have morning wood all the time. Is it that I have stopped responding to propecia and my body is used to the medication and producing lots of DHT? I am worried as hell. Please help.
If you look at the Propecia chart, you will see that your experience is in accordance with most men. Your doctor who prescribed you the medication should have explained this to you as well. It isn’t that the drug stopped working but rather your genetic predisposition is catching up. Propecia is still likely working in slowing down the hair loss (not reversing it). You should follow up with your doctor.
