Hi. Don't lose hope. Certainly your lost hair can be regained. Provided we are under regular follow up and prompt with hair care and it's medication. Finasteride is a good drug for controlling hair loss- androgenetic alopecia type. However it may be futile to take the same for other causes of hair loss. Therefore, I would want to examine you before I would prescribe or before i could ask you to continue the same. Finasteride is not an over the counter drug and should be taken with monitoring n prescription of a dermatologist only. Kindly let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Take care .
