Weekly summary - 216th week -- best comments all these years in this blog

I have write these blog from September 2007, the first day I took Propecia 0.5mg. It has been over 4 years. 4 years is a long time right?  I really think it is but it seems like just yesterday. Luckily, I have seen some results after a long period with some (do not dare to said a lot of effort) effort and persistent of medication (Propecia +Rogaine).
Last week, I have receive a true readers who has recapped my progress all these years. He seems like remembered vividly what I have gone through all these years. I think I can not recall some of the incidents along my way.
Thanks Ree!!!Share with you all guys.
Hi Jason, I'm Ree and I've been your reader since 2009.

Congratulations on your successful battle against MPB!
OK, let's summarize your journey.
You first used propecia in September 2007 and after 2 years, no changes at all except that you did not experience further hair fall.
In May 2010, you decided to go with Proscar and Minoxidil regime.
Your post [week 139] after 6 months of your proscar+minoxidil regime, you noticed new hair growth.
Your post [week 140], a colleague who had not seen you in a long time noticed that you had more hair than before.
Your post [week 149], you did not use minoxidil for 2 weeks and you noticed your hair fall was more than usual. However, [week 162] when you were on a holiday for 1 week and did not use minoxidil, your hair fall was normal.
Your week 188 post stated that you did not experience any new hair regrowth for the past 2 months. You also mentioned that the best time for a person to see new regrowth of hair is the first 9 months, and that you have passed that period.
Your post [week 200] with your photos clearly showed that you have more hair now than your 2nd week photo.
So, it can be concluded that :-
1) Proscar + Minoxidil work for you, it means it could work for others too
2) Propecia caused you to experience low libido, an unwanted side effect, and doesn't really work
3) A person needs a doctor's prescription to take Finasteride, but not Minoxidil
4) Minoxidil is cheaper if you buy online

All seems good and promising enough to make other MPB sufferers to do what you do. Just one question, does taking proscar+minoxidil make you grow hairy chest? cuz I'm not keen on having hairy chest. Anyways, all the best to you and thank you for blogging your experience.

Propecia for RM148 is considered cheap enough. I got it RM 160 last time. Now using Proscar but need to split it to 4.

Ree concluded that you don't need doctor's presrciption for minoxidil. but how come that stupid pharmacist at guardian's asked me for a prescription for minoxidil???????

hello Jason,
please advise, i just got 1 can of rogaine, and shockly discovered in its manual saying that it only works on vertex area, not intended for frontal receding hairline.. that's shit as i have no problem on my vertex!
