    Exactly 3 months in on dutasteride and over the past month it looks like my overall hair growth rate has diminished significantly. For as long as I can remember I get my haircut every 4-5 weeks. This is when my length starts to look pretty crappy and needs to be cleaned up. But I’m at 4 weeks now since my last cut and the length is nowhere near where it typically would be at this point. Can dutasteride impact the rate of growth? It almost feels like my hair was longer last week even though i know that’s impossible. I am thinning along the hairline, forelock and temples so maybe my hair loss is contributing to the illusion that it’s not growing? Would appreciate anyone’s experience with this and any thoughts on whether this is a good sign or a precursor to more hair fall. Thanks.

    Huh. Ok. My hairline and temples have definitely thinned out this month as well as the hair in my forelock so its possible that this is making it look like growth has slowed. I had more density just 10 days ago. I can’t even style my hair the same way as I did a week ago because my hairs are so thin and weak in the front. At this point it seems that nothing is going to stop the progression. Never thought I’d lose this much ground in 20 months on anti androgens.

    Just stick with it. Finasteride has definitely helped me but there have been times when I thought it wasn't, and that I was getting worse.

    I take dutasteride also.
    I feel like my hair doesn't grow as fast as it did before I started....but maybe it's all in my head?
    i dunno.
    There's no study I've seen that shows finasteride or dutasteride slowing hair growth

    Were you originally on finasteride before dutasteride? If so what was your experience?
