    EVERYONE Will Get Finasteride Side-Effects Eventually

    Have you had your hormone levels checked periodically?

    Question for oral minoxidil users . . .

    Grim, it would be interesting if you experimented with 2.5mg at some point, just to see if you can maintain on a lower dose. We have seen it validated, at least empirically, that 5-10mg can stimulate regrowth, so it would be interesting if one could titrate down to even lower dosages for...

    Yeah, the thing some might not fully register is that, estrogen practically IS an AA.

    EVERYONE Will Get Finasteride Side-Effects Eventually

    Yeah that's the thing. It would be super helpful if we could test and predict our fate. Not only could treatments be tailored better, but you could also plan and execute a transplant much more effectively. And yeah, I don't expect any treatment to hit the market any time soon that is as...

    EVERYONE Will Get Finasteride Side-Effects Eventually

    I agree with everything you said. I think it is really is individually dependent, and a prerequisite being a low norwood to start.

    Exploring The Hormonal Route. Hair=life.

    This makes sense and is evidenced by Tato's continued muscle gains while on this drug. I believe there is still a big concern with dosing and the risk of gyno, however? @Experimentality is anything known about scalp estrogen, or aromatase? I haven't seen anyone really talk much about these.

    Hair thinning at the sides of frontal hairline

    Well your options are: using tretinoin + minoxidil ~15% + dermarolling. The tretinoin can help topical nonresponders with the sulfotransferase enzyme. Or, you can try a low dose, 1-2mg. Aside from that, topical anti androgens.
