Any new updates?....just about ready to order some dutasteride.....finally after 12 years on finasteride and minoxidil, losing the battle bad.
If anyone here has been on dutasteride for at least 1 year + please post:
how many years you were on dutasteride
progress (includes maintaining),
dosage (.5 daily? 5. EOD, weekly, 2.5 etc...)
age when started
Norwood-Hamilton pattern before you started
Overall feeling: Positive or Negative?
Side Affects (if applicable)
Additional treatments you were using during this time
Maybe this has been done before but, I'm a new dutasteride user and would love to see a concentrated place where people can post their replies. I noticed many people post opinions without giving full information. So while a 45 year old male who was a Norwood 4 is pissed that he isn't a NW1 after 2 years of dutasteride may offer an opinion, that opinion may not nec. apply to a 24 year old NW2.
Also- if you have negative views on dutasteride (like some people clearly have) please post the above information before you just say something like "dutasteride sucks" or "dutasteride destroyed my life".
Let's see what we can get!!
I started my 2nd month today!
I am very optimistic. dutasteride has some wonderful results in many studies and there have been quite a few success stories.
Currently im a NW2, thinning in the vertex, but not severe. As of now, no sexual sides (then again I'm 22). Noticed fewer hairs in the shower...went from loosing approx 130 a day to 75 (LIBERAL). I am also removing a lot of fats from my diet.
No massive sheds, for the first month I have definitely shed some hairs the root wasn't gone on most of them tho.
My stress level has GREATLY reduced. I feel like I am taking positive steps to address this issue and I'm increasingly more confident because of it.
Dani, don't worry- 6 months ain't nothing bro. Give it a full consistent year (minimum). What dose are you taking? I recommend at LEAST .5mg/daily. Then again, I'm not a doctor...but that's what I was prescribed.
Dani- At the end of the day if we wind up going bald, screw it. It's nothing weird or strange, embrace it. Millions have and millions will continue to do so. Personally, this is a great motivator for me to get in shape and improve as many other of my physical characteristics as I can! Get a tan, get ripped...ladies dig that! Bald is masculine!
