Does anyone here use Propecia/Minoxidil and does it work for you?

    I am posting this question because you guys are a good sample of regular users.

    Since Wiggies hair is discussed so much I'm guessing that a lot of you, like myself, are conscientious about their own hair loss. Also because of the age 35-55 when most men experience some baldness. Hair loss forums are people so obsessed with their own hair loss that they can't see (their heads) clearly; you just get answers on either end of the extremes.

    I know that Dax Shepard, friend of the Show, uses Propecia because he has mentioned it. He also talks about having great sex with his wife + they have a kid. Also people of the typical users' age get depression, impotent, 100 other things mainly due to age so you can't really blame Propecia (also having a shitty diet affects your dick's blood flow just like your heart and typically shows up in middle age).

    I just started taking Propecia a few days ago and sides (if any) typically occur in the first 2 weeks. I have been on Minoxodil (Rogaine 5%) for about 4 months and HAVE seen some regrowth (very slight but I am 80% sure I am not hallucinating) so that is why I am using Propecia. I really just want to grow enough hair so that I don't have that damn shiny head! Nothing but hair regrowth can get rid of that scalp shine.

    Anyway, thoughts from other users as to what I might expect? Thanks for any replies!

    Been using minoxidil the past 7 months. My hair stopped falling out.. That's good enough for me to stay on it

    if Dax didn't have great sex he would have to actually pay attention to what Kristen Bell says. Anything is better than that torture.

    Bullshit. How could you possibly tell what was normal loss and loss due to balding?

    if he has no hair loss then something is wrong. its normal for people to lose some hair all the time; after all it is dead. it is going to normally break and fall away to some degree.

    Thanks! Apparently using it with Propecia works even better. I didn't even check if it was working and then one day I saw a picture of myself and my hair looked different and better.

    All I know is I used to pull out a couple hairs every time I tried pulling on it, not it doesn't happen that bad. The guy asked a question, and I answered it.

    Going bald, and would never take any drug to prevent it. I'm not some pussy who cares what a few morons think of me. If it's for the ladies, real women like confidence, not what's on top your head.

    I have a buddy who uses propecia...says it stops his hair from falling out but it has lowered his sex drive and he swears his penis has shrunk...

    Rogaine made my head itch too much. My uncle has been using it for over 20 years and is the only person in my family with a complete thick head of hair he is in his mid 40's. He uses women's strength because the extra strength burns.

    I had better luck with eating burdock root & using burdock oil I have a patch of thinning hair on back of head & after trying everything (I stopped propecia due to side effects) the burdock makes it hard to tell...it works 100%

    My hair is great, but I'm thinking of going to the bandana part time as a preemptive move so if I ever go bald no one will notice
