Started finasteride in March of 2017. Continued until about June of this year, which is when I switched to dutasteride. I know dude. I know. That's why I'm updating here, so others can learn from my stupidity. It's funny how perception works, though. I can now look back at my 1 and 2 month minoxidil photos (I didn't post them here) and see that the stuff pretty much started working right away. I just couldn't see it at the time because it was so minor.
