Question: Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a 30 years Male person, I am suffering from male pattern baldness. My hair count is still good and spread across the scalp. But, the quality of my hair is reducing day-by-day.

I used to consume some DHT blocker tablets around 4-5 years back and saw some good results and stopped after 1 year. I would like to resume using DHT blocking tablets now.

Could you please suggest me some generic DHT blocking tablets with less side effects.

I suffer from hair loss. Someone suggested that I use Hairmax Comb and take Finax tablets 1mg. Can you advise if this is the best treatment possible? Also, what are the challenges if one wants to stop taking this medicine? I also have Thyroid problem for which I am taking Thyroxine 75mg. Does Finax create a problem if taken along with Thyroxine?
