  • Please do not contact us if you are currently taking or are planning to take Finasteride for hairloss. If you have questions about using Finasteride for hair loss, please visit hairloss sites.
  • If you still choose to take Finasteride, we wish you the best of luck and recommend getting a baseline bloodtest as an insurance policy should things go wrong down the road, so you'll have results to compare against before, during and after treatment. For a list of hormones to test for, see here.
