i'd say save your money on the shampoo and drugs, let nature run its course and then get a transplant. the likelihood of any of that stuff working is minimal and it costs a lot because they know some ppl will be desperate enough to pay.

Finasteride was initially used solely to treat men with enlarged prostates and then later discovered it could also be used used for male patter baldness. They both work by the same biochemical mechanism.
lol, I see where you're coming from but I buy it directly from xandrox. Doing research has shown me that they have the best products available for mpb.

Listen all men will experience some type of hair thinning and falling out.
I started seeing a VERY GOOD and HONEST Homeopath MD and he has really helped me! Look up Licopodium. Its helped me alot!

ANd the best thing...........NO ****ING SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL!! Finastride or whatever the hell it is (also propecia) have side effects, no matter how small the % of ppl that get it........i dont like the fact that there are any side effects at all!

I assume you meant lycopodium. It's from the fern family.

No offense but homeopathic medicine = bs most of the time. I'm not saying you can't find useful substances in natural herbs or whatever, it's just that these "remedies" are not researched properly and scientifically. From wiki about homeopathy in general, NOT about lycopodium in particular:

Quote:
Claims of homeopathy's efficacy beyond the placebo effect are unsupported by the collective weight of scientific and clinical evidence.[9][10][11][12][13][14] While individual studies have positive results, systematic reviews of published trials fail to conclusively demonstrate efficacy.[15][16][17][18][19] Furthermore, higher quality trials tend to report less positive results,[17][20] and most positive studies have not been replicated or show methodological problems that prevent them from being considered unambiguous evidence of homeopathy's efficacy

homeopathic solutions, scientifically speaking, are absolute BS. The two tenets of homeopathy are 'hair of the dog that bit you' and dilution. That is, to cure a snake bite, you would use snake venom as your base. You would then dilute it with 99 parts water, 1 part poison to reach 1x. You then take one drop of that, and dilute it with another 99 drops of water to reach 2x. Keep going, and at 14x, you're looking at the ratio of one drop of actual poison in a body of water equivalent to the atlantic ocean. I believe most homeopathic remedies are at full strength between 20x-40x. At that point, not a single drop of the original poison remains. You are left with just water. I'm not saying ALL homeopathic cures are the same, I'm just saying the ancient art of homeopathy is based on this process. A french scientist called Bienveniste published an article in a very prominent scientific journal called 'The Memory of Water' detailing how a homeopathic solution worked due to the memory effect of water. He attempted to prove it scientifically and succeeded (apparently), however when a team of scientists and investigators requested him to repeat the experiment under scrutiny, he categorically failed to do so and became an outcast.

If it's working for you then great, you SHOULD continue with it. However, if I were forced to give an explanation, I'd put your success down to the placebo effect.
