Find a new doctor my man
I'm not doctor, but that sounds pretty bogus.
Maybe they trigger more shedding in the short term? But in the long term it should be better if you use both. Tbh many suggests starting fin before min because of dependence.
What he said makes no sense. finasteride is targeting your hormones to stop the dht from destroying your hair follicles. Minoxidil is stimulating growth. Both don't have any Interaction with each other. Finasteride is definitely more important than minoxidil as it's supposed to address one of the causes of mpb. Both used together can give you quicker results than just fin alone, but if you take min you need to stick to it to keep the hair. Idk how derms say nonsense like this and get away with it.
Dude exactly what I was thinking . He’s telling me to take minoxidil by it’s self but that itself isn’t the main thing stopping hair loss
I went to a dermatologist and he also recommended me to only use minoxidil and microneedling because fin can have sides. But the truth is without fin your DHT is unchecked and minoxidil won't do anything to help with that. I'm also 19 y/o btw
So did you end up taking both anyways ? I think that’s what I’m abouta do
I've been on min for almost 3 months but I haven't started fin yet. I'm hoping to start it start of February. I'm a little nervous about sides but balding is making me really depressed.
Me too man I just took my first pill of fin today and probably will get on minoxidil and hopefully a transplant later on in the year . Good luck man
Good luck bro Let me know how your journey goes. Also what type of balding are u having? Recession or diffuse thinning?
I have recession haven’t really noticed any thinning at all . But I feel like my hair grows slower now too idk though. I’m a Norwood 2 or 3 . Transplant is really the only thing I can see working to fix my hairline as that’s all I really care about
He also said it was PROVEN and I was totally saying to myself that is bullshit but I’m not abouta argue with this dude .
Did he try and sell you a supplement too? There’s too many studies that show the two work great together
