I've been on finasteride for about 5 weeks now. I did some research on the response curve and saw that .5mg was almost as effecive as 1mg, and a single dose lasts for a few days before DHT levels start rising again, so I decided to try .5mg eod, primarily because it reduces the cost but also because I'm just 18 and wanted to avoid side effects. Well, 5 weeks in and all of my side effects (which were mild) disappeared after the first couple days, so I'd be willing to increase the dose if you guys thought it would be a good idea. Is .5mg eod enough? Does anyone here have experience with that dose?
