To men, is it worth taking finasteride and using minoxidil to protect hair fall? Do the benefits outweigh the side effects?

I didn’t mind the minoxidil, but the side effects of Finasteride were enough to deter me. Especially if you’re in 20/30 Men age range.


If you get on with Minoxidil and Finax, you will have to be on them all your life to keep those hair strands on your head. The moment you discontinue, everything will shed in 3-4 months. Moreover your body builds a resistance to finax doses and what would start as an 1mg dose per week would be 5mg a week after 6 months to have the same effect on your hair regrowth and shall eventually affect your sexual potency. Even hair transplants (FUT/FUE) need to be supplemented with Finax and PRP treatments at regular intervals to effect even decent results. Anyway, do your own research to be double sure about everything. Talk to the doctors across the board.

Moving out of the US for 5-6 years, does it make sense to keep the 401k as is or withdraw it and pay the fine and penalty as it could still be used as a 25-30% down payment for a house ? The balance is under 70k right now. I will be moving back after 5-6 years.
