    Starting at the airlines shortly and simultaneously starting to try to battle my hair loss. Is Finasteride an approved medication for flying part 121? Do I need to worry about busting a drug test because of it?

    Thank you.

    Not always. I was on a flight not long ago and there was a flight attendant who couldn’t have been much older than I am and she was sexy as all get out. There's definitely outliers, you just have to get on the right flight!

    Finasteride
    Common brands: Proscar, Propecia, Propecia Pro-Pak
    Urinary retention medication
    It can treat enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia). It can also treat hair loss in men.


    I am thinking of a solution that will

    1) Still look attractive (think about guys name Yul, Vin, Jean Luc, Statham, The Rock, Stone Cold, and a few more)
    2) Eliminate the chance of "Bed Head" and "Headset Hair"
    3) Be low cost and easy to maintain.
    4) Never jeopardize a FAA medical certificate​

    Realize the commitment is long term. Once you stop it you don’t start losing hair. You lose all the hair that you would have be due.
    So it’s a lot in a short period of time. :(

    I sure hope I never lose my hair, because my lady friends wouldn’t have anything to run their hands through.

    I use it for BPH. 5 mg/day. Didn't affect my Canadian Cat 1 medical. It's what? 1 mg/day for hair loss?

    It did slow my hair loss, but it's also coming out my ears and nose now.. The price of not peeing on your shoes.
