Hair Loss
Rogaine vs Propecia

 2:30 am on Mar 24, 2004 (gmt 0)

Yes folks, it's true! My hair is thinning out. Not sure if's because of Google's new algos,
or that Dmoz has banned my site, but I need help on whether to go with Rogaine or Propecia.

I will definitely seek a doctors opinion but I thought some members can shed some light as well.

How many affiliate links got dropped in your sticky box? :)

Dont blame your hair loss on Google. Towels are guilty!

From now on, dry out your hair with toilet paper...

Sorry! :)

Eh? So I've been doing it wrong all these years? What are we to blame towels for? Hair loss? Is that why I'm thinning out? 25 years of towel drying? Help! ;)

Don't use 'Wash & Go' :)

Regaine is what I've heard some people are using. It doesn't work for some of them, but it should be the best according to my doctor. I'd try that one first.

To my knowledge, Regaine (minoxidil) is the only one that's been shown in proper scientific trials to have any effect. However, if I remember correctly, you need to use it every day (or twice a day, not sure) for six months before you have a chance of seeing a benefit, and only a certain proportion of users ever do see a benefit. Last time I looked, it cost 1 a day, so it's quite an expensive experiment.

The cheaper option is to be content with looking more distinguished... :)

I'm not a big fan of Propecia. A pill that goes in your stomach and suppose
to stop hair loss and in some cases grow it back; without causing something else
instead to freak! I'm not sure about that.

My paranoia and your comments have left me no choice!
Rogaine it is!

hmmmm..... is it a proven fact towels are not good?
where's my lawyer!

Fact 1 : everyone suffering hair loss used a towel to dry their hair.
Fact 2 : most people are using toilet paper and never suffered hair loss, there...

Everyone should switch to toilet paper.

Sorry again!:)

Just go bald with pride.

Work out and get buff and wear a gold earring so you look like Mr. Clean.

No no folks, nothing here with "bald with pride". Have this problem already with my 23 years :(
Side effects of Propecia may be a swollen face, erection problems and similar (according to some comprehensive pill book I have access to), but I will give the pill a try nevertheless in the next weeks. We'll see.

Nevermind Propecia - 23 years old and bald will cause erection problems - tough one bull!

I tell a lie...

The British National Formulary [bnf.org.uk] is available online with the latest UK prescribing information - look up minoxidil (Regaine) and finasteride (Propecia).
