Patient concerns

I was taking finax 1mg tablet for hair loss with minoxidil 10%. I experienced weight gain Though the hair results was very good. but due to side effects i stopped finax tablet. Its been 1 year now i stopped finax. But now I am again consulted to use MORR F 5% topical solution, which contains finastefide. I am worried that finasteride will again cause side effects of weight gain and gynavomastia. Being a topical solution of finastetide, will it cause those side effects? shall i continue it?
Dr. Dharamvir Singh
Dermatology
U should not continue it
I am suffering from alopecia. I have used finax and Bioxidil serum for 1 and1/2 years but no improvement.
Dr. Banashree Majumdar
Dermatology
Dear PATIENT you are suffering from hormone mediated hair loss what we call androgenetic alopecia in medical terms. I can understand your problem but you need to understand that there is no permanent solution to this condition. you can apply Minoxidil 5% lotion 1 ml twice daily over dry scalp for 3 months. You have to apply Minoxidil for long period of time for new hair and also continue it as long as you wish for hairs.
