I've heard people mention proscar on this board and was wondering if anyone could point me to any info on why people take it?? I know it has something to do with preventing hair loss or is it growing hair back or ??? I tried to do a search on Yahoo about it and they kept refering to people with cancer etc. but it never really said what it did or why other people take it etc.? Any help would be grateful. Is it like or better than Propecia?? Thanks. peace.
