I’m 22 years old and my hair line has been receding since i was 20. I know that male pattern baldness can skip a generation, but no one on my mother or father’s side of the family has any hair loss.
I started taking propecia. My sexual drive was waning and my lips were swelling up. How long do these side effects stay around for? And if these side effects don’t go away, what should I do to fight the hair loss.
I would worry about an allergic response to Propecia. Swelling of the lips could point to such a problem. I would assume that some doctor has prescribed the medication for you, so see that doctor and ask for more information from him/her. At 20, you need your hair mapped out for miniaturization to determine what you are treating with the drug, if you have genetic hair loss, and what benefits you may or may not be having with the drug.
