It could be that if you were helped, you are no longer on these boards! I was diagnosed with AGA today by Dr Oro at Stanford and he prescribed 100mg spiro with all the usual warnings about potassium levels etc. Did it help anyone? I'm dreading a big shed but he says out of the drugs he prescribes, there is less shedding because it is the mildest. Oh, to medicate or not, my head is spinning!! I just wonder if I'm opening up a can of worms and starting a life long path of trying to fix something that ultimately may not be fixable.
