I went to a dermatologist [D.N.B (Skin & V.D.), D.V.&D.].

Ketus (Ketoconazole Tablet P) 1 at noon (10 days) 3. Azirun-250 / Azithromycin Tablets 1 – 1 (empty stomach) – 7 days 4. Tricinol-40 ( Triamcinolone Acetonide Injection I.P) Injection-1 5. Trifin- ( Finasteride Tablets USP 1 mg) 1 at morning (30 days) 6. Keraglo-AD Shampoo 7. Foli fast-Medicinal Hair Tincture Hair Drops after applying oil 8. HGfive Herbal Hair Oil Hair Oil - twice a week Is the prescription correct ?? I have not taken so many medicines ever. What could be the side effects ? Any serious ones? i have also heard that Finasteride Tablets USP 1 mg have serious side effects like impotency, testilcular cancer etc. Is it true? Please help urgently.

Yes, finasteride can cause sexual problems but these are usually reversible when treatment is discontinued. Hair loss can be pretty much individualized and it is not necessary to have a family history of baldness to lose hair permanently! If you have distinct areas of baldness then these are just temporary medications and hair loss would continue to occur. It would be prudent to make an appointment with a plastic surgeon who practices hair restoration because definite areas of baldness can only be completely remedied with this surgery.
