I remember asking a ton of questions back in February about Dutasteride and some of the answers were unclear and the consensus was that everyone responds differently so just give it a go. At the time I said on the forum that when I do try I will update everyone after 6 months to let everyone know if it had any affect on me or not. Here are the results: Before treatment Over 6 months later and after a gym session: Around my temples hasn't made much of a difference and it just looks better because its grown out, but through the middle, especially the centre, you can see an increase in density. My treatment has been sporadic at the first but this is what I have done. Mid Feb was just finasteride. March I introduced dutasteride and minoxidil. Throughout March and April I overdid dutasteride because I wanted results and I took it 5 times a week with finasteride on the other days: side effects was terrible anxiety. May to August - I now take dutasteride once every 5 or 6 days and finasteride on the other days. This gives me less to no side effects. I hope this thread helps someone who is unsure of whether to take dutasteride. I'm currently hoping to get a little more density and some temple regrowth but I am also happy with where I am, especially compared to where I thought I would be a year ago. Feels like its time to stop worrying about hair loss and just move on. If you have any questions please ask.
