I am almost 45yrs old and thinking about starting Propecia. Am I to old? What could I expect at my age. Basically, I have thinning in the frontal areas only. Also, should I be concerned about the side affects at my age?
You may not get the full benefit of the drug as you would have when you were losing hair in your 20s and early 30s. That being said, you’re not too old. The sexual side effects that most men worry about are either:
- you get them (2% risk), or
- your don’t get them (98%)
If you see a good, competent doctor, he/she will be able to estimate the value of this drug in your unique situation with good miniaturization and bulk analysis of your hair in the areas of greatest concern.
