Reviews for Propecia to treat Androgenetic Alopecia
Review by Anonymous:
I have been using this medication for just over a year now. Hair has re-grown over my crown but the top and temple areas are still quite thin, have not re-grown and not responded in the same way. I guess these areas have not gotten any worse either. Certainly I don%u2019t notice hair in the shower or in my hair brush as much. On the sexual function side of things I have noticed a decrease performance wise, I guess there was always going to be a tradeoff. The main thing I think to watch out for is the effect the medication has on PSA levels and if you are already being monitored for this prior to starting Propecia it is worth bearing in mind and reminding your physician about the PSA lowering effect of Propecia.

Review by ArIckP:
At the tender age of 25, I noticed that my hair was beginning to thin. Not wanting to look like my dad or brother, I got a prescription for Propecia. So far, it's been working. In fact, if I miss a dosage, I'll notice little bits of my hair fall into my keyboard or the pages of a book I'm reading! Yes, this medication is expensive. My insurance won't cover it at all. (Funny that they cover Viagra, though). The only side effect is that I do notice a slight decrease in my sex drive - but honestly that's probably good. Keeps me out of trouble.

After 1 month of using Propecia, I noticed a decrease in the loss of hair after a shower. Now in my 4th month of use, there is a notable difference in the thickness of my hair, and some growth noted!

I started suffering from hair loss just recently. My doctor prescribed me this medicine. After 1 month of using it, my hair doesn't fall any more. Until now I continue using it and there's no other side effects. This medicine is so amazing!
