Can I ask where you get this? It's definitely something I'd be interested in
I think it's worth mentioning that Topical Finasteride isn't as effective as Oral Fin...
It's all a minefield tbh.. bear in mind if you have Laya health insurance you can get Proscar (Finasteride) tablets prescribed for free from https://www.careoncall.ie/hair-loss
Maybe VHI have similar, not sure
Also remember as Dr Nel is a registered doc you can also claim back a portion of the consultation fee, depending on your health insurance cover.
I got back €80 of the €200.
The topical finasteride and minoxidil is definitely working for me.
I found this evidence before I went on this route:
I got it from Hims UK. I had to use AddressPal as they don't deliver directly to Ireland.
That's a quote from the same study I quoted from. That's a pretty liberal usage of the word "similar" (34 and 55). Possibly there were some vested interests in that study.
That's true, but still you would expect much lower results with other medications when administering topical vs systemic. Plus it's a relatively small study and generalising on a wider population could vary the results.
For me at a personal level, the topical combination of both minoxidil + finasteride seems to be working with zero side effects so far.
