has anyone who takes propecia noticed any change in their facial hair?reason im asking is its only in the past 3years my facial hair has started to fill in not fully yet but nearly their and since im taking propecia now should i expect no more growth?im 25
Whilst on Proscar many years ago, I noticed my body hair diminished a bit due to the DHT being limited by the drug. Some guys to notice this effects the beard although much less. I never had any beard issues, only legs, arm hair etc, was much less, stomach and to some degree chest also.
When coming off it I grew all back as normal. DHT that causes the loss in the scalp is needed for masculinity and therefore beard, body hair etc, is part and parcel of that.
Yes it was mentioned but they said :- [align=left]"In one study, patients were questioned on the growth of body hair. PROPECIA did not appear to affect hair in places other than the scalp."[/align] [align=left]Not sure how many had the trial and for how long, I speak from personal experience. It makes sense that body hair will be effected as you are limiting DHT.[/align] [align=left] [/align] [align=left] [/align] [align=left] [/align] [align=left] [/align]
I have been taking for around 3 years now, cant say I have any noticable side effects... do grow a beard from time to time and not noticed any difference... apart from the grey bits that are now showing :-(
I have been off Proscar for many years, and take Saw Palmetto since May 2009, i've personally found it good to be on to be honest as a natural DHT blocker. My chest hair is good quality and beard unaffected.
I have wavy hair its up to my shoulders should i get it done? how many times do i have to get it done? like after a 3rd time will it be semi straight so i dont have to keep doing it? what will it do to my hair?? how much will it cost? =========================
Petersen, sorry you will have to be a bit more specific in what you are talking about?
Stephen- sorry for my late reply, thanks for your reply do you think it has halted your hairloss? I have never tried it but have seen it is readily available and quite cheap I have been on Proscar since June 2006 and there is no question it has halted my loss, think I may give it a try.
