    When did you recover from your shed 7 months in? I’m currently experiencing that right now also.

    OK, I went to the doctor today and he prescribed me dutasteride. I'm still not sure if this is the right moment to start taking it. The idea is to continue taking finasteride every day and start dutasteride once a week.

    Anyone have links to threads with results, where someone switched from finasteride to dutaseride?

    As I've done research into dutasteride, some people (again this is like a few threads in here) said that dutasteride destroyed their hairline and some said they should have done what you suggested, ease into it but IMO I think its just BS. dutasteride should just work, especially if you still take finasteride for a week. Doesn't it start working at least a week into it?

    Like, you can not use Propecia for a week and still be fine.

    I've been using dustas for ~3 months, previously finasteride for a year. My hair quality has tanked and thinning seems worse. But, I also dropped topical e2 right around this time, so this isn't the best experiment for dutas' efficacy. I'm currently tapering down to 1 dutas / week and will then resume finasteride daily.

    It just seems to me like OP's hair is just longer now. Not seeing a ton of difference in before\after...not much hair loss to begin with anyway.

    Regardless, I am considering swapping out Rogaine foam for 5mg Loniten daily to see if it gives me an improvement.

    That's why I always put pictures with wet hair combed up. Usually photos were added after cutting, but there were probably exceptions.

    I'm not here to lie to anyone, photos never reflect reality.

    But sometimes I had thoughts like you - Maybe Minoxidil didn't give me much, maybe i just changed my hairstyle. And I have no idea where the truth is.

    ______
    After 3 months of vacation, I returned to college and met my dude who used to make fun of my receding hairline. After a moment of conversation, he stated that I have more hair than before and asked if I had done a transplant or something. ^^

    Maybe a haircut, maybe medication, I didn't notice any special changes myself during the holidays, but who knows

    4.10.2019 - I took first Dutasteride pill

    I take them once a week, the rest has not changed, I still use Finasteride every day

    Next week I'll try to upload some photos

    Hi @DuckThisSheet, thank you very much for showing your case.

    a question, what is the brand of your Dutas?

    Regards.

    I'm not here to attack you by the way, I think anytime people post info it's good...even just regarding side effects, dosage, etc. But this is why consistent photos are so important. If you take consistent photos, then you will know where the truth is.
