Hi, I have been told by my doctor that taking 5mg Finasteride tablet(Proscar)once every three days is also effective for treatment for balding. I’m 21 years old and was told that I’m having genetic alopecia. Can I have your opinion or recommendation?
I don’t have a problem with this suggestion if it works. The reason we recommend daily dosing is because that is the way the data was collected and the official recommendation of the drug company (1mg/day). It is logical as a daily dose, because the half life of the drug in the body is about 5 hours. Maybe your doctor has a great deal of experience with this every 3 day dosing routine. It may work OK!
