Hair loss: You shouldn't lose all your hair, but will gradually return to the male pattern form of hair loss you experienced before finasteride. Your side effects should resolve after stopping it. You could try using minoxidil spray for the crown of your scalp. Discuss this with your MD or dermatologist.
