    No sides from DUTASTERIDE!

    I today started taking DUT at the full 0.5 dose level, not sure if that's the highest they give you or standard or whatever, but I'm getting absolutely NO side effects, and if anything it's making me feel good, in a weird way, like I feel a tad bit more peppy and what not who knows. But absolutely NO SIDES!

    WHereas with propecia/finasteride I had a "brain fog" cloudiness, confusion, aggression, and all sorts of noticeable sides.

    But yet Dut is supposed to be the stronger drug right? So why isn't this drug giving me any sides and is being well tolerated by my body?


    WEIRD! How long do I have to take dut to start noticing results?

    can I take fin once in a while , WHILE im on dut?

    In reverse order:

    There's no point taking Fin when using .5 mg Dut/day.

    Time frame for results depends on the individual, but don't expect miracles overnight. In fact your first sign of the drug working may be a shed....

    Give it a few weeks (or even months) before buying your 'no side effects from Dutasteride' T-Shirt. Got to let the drug build up in your system first.

    Not sure I've ever been peppy. I did know a girl called Poppy....

    No side effects for me either, and I've been popping these bad boys since 2003.

    You started it today!?

    I think you could take 20mg and not get sides in a day.

    It took months before the my lowered libido kicked in. Sadly, I've been off dut since February and it's still not back to normal.

    well, the real question here is if Dut will work just as well as fin, or better.


    My doctor actually told me that i can take both at the same time. Not on the same DAY, but...one one day, and one another.


    How valid is this?

    Absolutely. We all know that dut is better than fin when it comes to inhibiting DHT, but does it actually matter - i.e. does that provide more protection to your hair?

    Tell your doctor that dutasteride builds-up in your system over time, so there is ALWAYS dut in your bloodstream, regardless of whether or not you take any on any given day. Therefore, it shouldn't matter if you take the drugs on separate days.
    1) No, damnit, finasteride for hairloss was NOT an "accidental discovery".
    2) No, you do NOT have to use minoxidil and Retin-A at the same time.
    3) No, washing your skin does NOT make it produce more sebum.
