I have wrote to you before about Propecia losing it’s effectiveness for me after 6+/- years.
I have had just about every blood test done which were all in a normal range. Thyrioid is OK.
The only thing that appeared high was my Estrogen/Estradiol levels.
Last stop was an Endrocinologist who thought the level was a bit high but not horribly high.
The problem is my hair is just coming out daily. I can pull on it and get a shed. Wash it and get a shed. Nothing is slowing down the loss.
My question is, should I try Avodart since nothing else seems to be working.
I am 40 and basically a healthy guy.
But I am desperate as well.
Is it normal for all of the top to just go in such a short amount of time (6+/- months)?
Hair loss is an ongoing process with or without using Propecia. However, hair loss may slow down or temporarily stop once on Propecia. Avodart appears to be a longer acting drug in the same class as Propecia. I am not certain if it will be better than Propecia. I need to see more data before recommending you to try it, but without the FDA’s approval, I am not willing to recommend it yet. Despite the theory behind Avodart, there is no concrete study out there to prove that this drug is better than Propecia.
