I had decent results after 3 months with:
1mg finasteride
5% minoxidil
dht blocking shampoo

Haven't noticed any of the side effects.

I had previously tried minoxidil foam but didn't keep up with it, may have helped reduce some loss but wasn't effective on it's own for me. Figured I've give it one more try before giving up and happy with the results so far.

That is impressive. Is finasteride still prescription only? I regret not staying on Propecia

Yes, you can get a prescription online, CVS does it I believe. But it's better to get it from your family doctor if you have one.

Hair Restoration Laboratories from amazon. Kirkland Minoxidil also can be bought from amazon.

1mg Finasteride and Rogain 5%. Used to use 2% Nizoral shampoo, but it's prescription. Back at 24 got super bad balding. Initially it was working wonders, but at 30 now it's slowed down. Still better than nothing and I may stop Finasteride soon and just keep the Rogain. No side effects by the way and had 2 kids since then. You are more likely to crash in your BMW speeding than have Finasteride side effects .

In my opinion, any shampoo that says anything about helping hair-loss is probably a marketing scam.
I had used Pura d'Or or whatever it is for about a year and a half when I felt my thinning was starting to progress and I didn't feel it did anything for me. I put off the inevitable: taking finasteride. Been taking it since early 2017 and happy with the results. My hair isn't perfect but it improved and it's not really a worry/concern.
