    Still want more density, lets see if dutasteride allows a bit more gaining and then a FUE to the hairline and crown if possible.

    so dutasteride helped you ? you just used it once a week ?
    and you didn't shed with minoxidil ? you didn't get white flakes with it ,?

    Hi Michel, not sure about the dutasteride because i just started it 2 weeks ago, but i think my hair is feeling a bit thicker already just with adding dutasteride to my regimen. I dont think i ever shedded from minoxidil but if you see my starting point, there wasnt a lot to shedd there.. lol.
    With the foam i didnt get white flakes, with the liquid minoxidil i get a few powdery white on my hair but i dont care.. i prefer to retain hair :) i also feel the liquid minoxidil is more effective for me

    Thanks Michel, i probably use around 2ml 2x or 3x a day, no dark circles.
    RegardIng the anti androgens when i started finasteride for a few weeks i had brain fog and increased libido, but thats your body adapting to the hormonal change, all normal ever since. With the addition of duta i havent felt anything

    The worst you can do is give up at the first sign of side effects, perseverance is the word and they will go away. In my case they did and the increased of libido was beneficial in my case at that time lol

    Loled.

    Yeah OP, are you Arabic or Middle Eastern in descent? Looks like it. You guys have the fucking thickest follicles on the planet. Your hair looks like pubes. And I don't mean that in a bad way! Just teasing. It's just you guys have such incredibly big (diameter) hair shafts and with that slight curl, they could take half the hair out of your donor area and no one would notice.

    Amazing regrowth. You're a lucky guy. That's fantastic. Good luck. You could definitely do a bit better with a density transplant but you've already won the game.

    Be happy.

    Noup, I'm south european.
    But yeah, i still need a FUE to increase the density behind the hairline and at the crown :)
    Whats sick in this disease is that if i ever stop the medication no doubt ill be completely bald.

    6 weeks on dutasteride 1x a week, finasteride 1mg everyday (since March 2016) and minoxidil 2x a day also since 2016

    No side effects from dutasteride adition so I might increase the duta to 2x a week to see if any further thickning and regrowth
    Also just ordered to my conpound pharmacy to built a special prepared minoxidil (8% minoxidil + azelaic acid + medroxyprogesterone + cafeine) and finasteride gel 2.5% for topical application. Will collect next week and start using it immediately

    You think about adding any topical anti androgen? Pretty much will pick up any dht missed from propecia and dutasteride.

    I saw a study somewhere that something like 30% of dht will still bind to your follicles and shrink them regardless of how low your dht levels are, that should probably be the most useful thing in your regimine.

    Do you think topical spironolactone (S5 plus cream) is strong enough as an anti androgen if used with duta and fina?
