  • Stop your hair loss MEDICALLY and for CHEAP

    WOULD YOU PAY $.10 A DAY TO STOP YOUR HAIR LOSS?

    Good news! Propecia is PROVEN to stop hair loss. I speak from personal experience on this. When I was in my early 20s, I began rapidly losing my hair due to male pattern baldness. I spent a fortune on hair transplants because I was so self-conscious about it.

    Ten years later, on my second trip for transplants, my surgeon said "you know, if you don't start taking propecia, you're going to have to keep coming back in here because you are going to keep losing your hair." He wrote me a prescription, and from then on I paid around $75 a month to keep my hair. It worked.

    As it turns out, Propecia is a 20% dose of "Proscar", a drug prescribed for your enlarged prostate. So...if you can get your doctor to prescribe "Proscar", you simply cut the pill into 5 pieces and you've saved a bunch of money!

    And now, there is even a generic for Proscar - it's called Finasteride, and it's really cheap. You can spend $10-20 a month for Finasteride 1mg for your hair loss, or have your doctor prescribe you Finasteride 5 mg for about the same price, and chop the pills into 5 pieces.

    If cut into 5 pieces, Finasteride 5 mg will last you 150 days. So your cost to stop your balding is about $.10 a day.

    My personal experience is that the drug doesn't regrow hair where you are bald; it simply arrested further loss. I'm 51 and I've still got a lot of hair, but by the time I started taking Finasteride, a lot of damage had been done.

    Happy Hair Growing and Saving!

    Disclaimer: Consult with your doctor about Finasteride, its efficacy, and potential side effects. I had none.

    How simple do you actually find it to cut a pill into 5 relatively equal pieces? I would expect that the pill would crumble to some extent or have small pieces break off. I typically find that especially true with generics which tend to break up more easily.

    Cutting a pill in half is one thing. I recommend that all the time. But cutting into 5 pieces seems like a stretch.

      It's an in-exact science for sure. Takes a REALLY sharp knife! I'm pretty sure I'm getting 1.25 mg some days, .75 others, and on days I forget, 0 mgs!

        Which is probably no problem for this particular medicine but could be for something more important like blood pressure, diabetes, etc. So I probably wouldn't recommend anything smaller than halves as a general rule.

          The only medical fixes are Propecia, minoxidil, and hair transplants. I've done all three.

          There is no FDA research to support the efficacy of laser therapy, and doctors don't generally write prescriptions for wigs.

            Due to one of the meds I take for RA, Methotrexate, which is a chemo-therapy drug, my hair started falling out which is what happens to those with cancer they go bald. I was prescribed Folic Acid and when it didn't halt the problem I was upped to two tabs a day. It is 10 mg I believe and is prescription strength, but might be something you might want to ask your doc if you can try.

                I tried minoxidil topical solution and I saw no improvement.
