I am from Boston. I am 25 years old. I have been taking propecia for roughly 4 years. The side effects started bothering me so my doctor told me to get off of it. Everytime I try to get back on it my body does not tolerate it. Since being off of the drug my hairloss has rapidly begun again. Just sitting at work today there were tons of hairs all around me. It is very scary to start losing hair this fast. I can actually feel the hairs falling on my face. I have been doing some internet research and it looks spencer david kobren gave revivogen a thumbs up. I was also noticing procerin and provillus got excellent reviews. What are some alternatives to inhibit DHT besides propecia or to stop the hair loss for that matter. Now that I am not tolerating propecia am I destined to lose my hair quickly. I truly appreciate your help.
Reading reviews online is a good first step, but take everything you read with a grain of salt. It is good to be wary and to not just believe marketing hype and slick graphics that make claims to work without any scientific proof to back it up. Trusting your source is critical, as there are many fake reviews out there made by the sellers of various products to try to convince you to fork over your cash.
I only know for sure that finasteride, dutasteride, and minoxidil work (though only finasteride and minoxidil are FDA approved for treating hair loss — dutasteride is in clinical trials). Dutasteride may produce even more side effects than finasteride (Propecia), so I believe you do have a problem and an uncertain hair loss future. I, like many others, am awaiting the results of the FDA dutasteride trials for hair loss treatment.
