Time of day to take Propecia
Hello Dr.

I am a 30yr old male. I started taking propecia 3.5 months ago when I noticed
that my hairline is receding.  The doctor who prescribed propecia told me
that it will take 3 months before I notice anything however, I am still losing
hair. Do you think at this stage, shall I continue taking propecia or I should
stop taking it?

The doctor told me that I have to take propecia daily. I would like to find out if I have to take propecia at the exact same time everyday? or any time during the day works?

Thanks....

You should take Propecia for at least 3 months more before you decide whether it's working.  It works for most people, at least to hold on to what you have.  Frankly, there isn't much else out there that's effective.  And no, it doesn't matter what time f day you take it or whether you take it at the same time every day.

Best.
