    I have been on Dutasteride (1 pill per day) for about 4 years. Was on propecia for 10 years prior to that. Recently seeing hair loss start again and hair thinning. Was wondering if I should add a saw Palmetto or pumpkin seed oil pill to my regimen to reduce dht further since Dutasteride seems to be not having as much effect on reducing dht? Has anyone had any luck with saw palmetto or pumpkin seed oil pills to stabilize or produce slight Regrowth? I’m also using minoxidil 1x per day. Not sure what else to do at this point other than try saw Palmetto or pumpkin seed oil, or maybe increase my Dutasteride intake? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I've wondered about adding supplements as well but never get straight answers. Even from doctors.

    Same. I’ve asked doctors and searched all over internet and get mixed messages. Was hoping someone here had experience good or bad with saw palmetto or pumpkin seed oil polls they could share.

    I posted a comment a couple of months ago asking about adding saw palmetto. One person replied saying it didn't work. I'm using finasteride but I thought, if saw palmetto blocks some dht, I could get a slightly better result using that as well.

    There was a comment on Dr. Rassman's Balding Blog last week about that very thing, but again no real answer. He said on that blog that it blocks some dht but is very weak, so then it should be helpful to a small degree when added to finasteride or dutasteride.
