    my doctor gave me a prescription, I just don't know if it is worth it? Growing hair back and then going off the medicine and it looks twice as bad? Does it even work, too hard to believe

    Howard related because he wears a wig

    I just read about that drug. It's side effects can lead to sexual dysfunction.

    You can either get laid or have a great head of hair, but nor both

    I have been on Propecia since 1999. It stopped my receding hairline and grew my thinning bald spot back in. No side effects. My older and younger brothers have half the hair I do. I'm 46 now. It used to be $45 a month when I started . I now take a pill every other day, and I am still holding what I have on my head.

    I'm in my early fifties, and I've noticed my hair getting longer, thicker, and curlier as I get older!

    My grandpa Sol MasterShake had thick, dark black, curly hair well into his 90s!

    Get your doctor to give you a script for the 5mg pills, not the 1mg. The script will cost you the same on your insurance, but you can cut them up, a months prescription will then last you many months. Also you don't need 1 mg a day anyway, take it every other day.

    I never had the bald spot but it seemed to be falling out a little on top, now it's as thick as it ever was. Never had any boner issues w/ it.

    Considering all in all it costs me like $30 a yr for it, why not do it?

    I have BC/BS and yeah my copay is $10. Finasteride is also prescribed for prostate issues, so I assume most insurance will cover it.

    Propecia is great, i took it when i started noticing a lot of shedding in the bathroom after a shower. It regrew literally all the hair I had lost in terms of the top and back and stopped my hair line from receding. Great drug, but I'm not sure how it works for people who are practically bald. I jumped on that shit as soon as I noticed my hair got even a little thin in the back, so I'm not sure if it takes you from cue ball to grandpa saul.

    I'm on nortriptoline for migraines, and my cock has been like I'm a teenager again. That's a double plus since I don't get headaches anymore. Plus it gives a cool mellow slight buzz.

    I used the generic stuff. 1/4 pill per day. Retards the receding hairline but didn't completely stop it. No sexual side effects.

    I would imagine a little Viagra would negate any boner issues. Is that not the case?
