My guess is I might fair well on AAs if I could figure out how to manage the sides. I’d say my best run was with topical Finasteride with HCG. Sort of counter productive but must have been sustaining me as I was in that mix for 2 years. I thought Dutasteride was safer, molecular weight and all but it’s been a nightmare.

might try a break and then reintroduce low concentration topical Finasteride and stay on the oral minoxidil.

the shedding though WTF it started out of knowwhere and has not slowed for almost 4 years now.

I’m pretty convinced it’s been AA all along, but did they note why your back is also thinning?
They didn't even address it. Just said I had "pink spots" on my scalp and it was a bit "scaly" lol whatever that means. She told me to stop oral finasteride but tried to sell me her topical finasteride + minoxidil. It's a joke and all they want is money. Took about 5 mins.

I honestly don't think it's AA. I've been following your thread for awhile because it's really similar to my loss as in treatments don't slow it down and it's very rapid. I honestly believe it's thyroid related because I also have a nodule and thyroid issues.

That's a lotta hair ... Buzz your hair, things would look much less horrible, that was my first course of action when I started shedding hair.
I started seeing much less hair, IDK if that's because I treated my hair or because of the haircut.
But either way it just gave me a relief.

If you can't buzz your hair because you think would look much worse, just cut it short at the very least.

I think think there is some way to slow it down. The amount of hair for so long is extreme. I might ease the topical Dutasteride and maybe hold on the RU.

can anyone provide some insights to when a change would be noticeable in ones hair. I have been digging into photos and it seems it’s gotten better, at least healthier despite the shed. I’m trying to align times when hair was better with what regimen I was on. For example I got iron IV in January 2020 and my hair color and density improved in March April started declining in June. Took some HCG for sides in July and hair improved August and September.
Went cold turkey end of August and By January I regressed.

slow the shed, cut it short, work on hair quality and density. get shredded and rid my life of AA sides...

I think switch to Dutasteride gutted the hair line.

dr konior recommend 1.25 mg or more like 5 mg oral min for male?
and you didn't get more leg hair from 10 mg minoxidil? that is lucky bro because 10 mg is quite high. You are still in great shape with it?

You could be right about avodart, it improved my crown but shedded my hairline bigly. Not sure if it is safe to go back to propecia for me which I was on for 3 years

Anyone have an answer on that? can you start with propecia, move to avodart and then back to propecia or will shed be another huge problem/?

I was on advodart and went back to finasteride only and was fine. You don't have to worry too much as you don't have aggressive hair loss and the likelihood of you going bald in the next decade is rare. You have one of the best heads of hair on this forum for your age.

You have DUPA.

For DUPA you can drop finasteride and dutasteride, anti androgens are totally useless for this disease

You can try topical cetirizine + topical setipiprant + oral or topical etoricoxib (topical is safer but difficult to do) + topical hydrocortisone + oral minoxidil

I see small grey hairs flying out when blow drying hair, 3 or 4. Is this normal and are grey hairs just weaker?

So if you have thinning all over Avodart is not good, what is good
