whats your opinion on this new study, related to topical finasteride?
In my opinion, it is a very poor study and you cannot come to a conclusion. It only confuses consumers such as yourself. It is incomplete.
- Only 45 men were studied. You need thousands.
- The study was only for 6 months. You need at least a year to see results even on oral finasteride.
- They didn’t have a group of patients who took both placebos (no topical finasteride and no oral finasteride) and this is a critical flaw and it does not adhere to basic scientific methodology.
- Just because there were no difference in the two groups does not mean both (oral finasteride and topical finasteride) are similar. Oral finasteride does not work well in 6 months
