    BTW I was speaking to a surgeon a few months back and he recommended I should get a 2200 graft FUE.

    Does that seem too high number of grafts?

    I've seen men with my hair only getting 1500 grafts.

    What brand of Dutasteride are you using? Also, how long had you been using Finasteride before you added dutasteride?

    Avodart.

    Only 2 or so weeks. I figured why not go all in.

    Results at 9 months: regained more density on the top but nothing more at the hairline.

    I’m thinking about switching to dutasteride. finasteride doesn’t seem to be slowing my loss at all. Are you prescribed or order online?

    Also, what was the speed of your loss before dutasteride?

    Update after around a year.

    I regained a ton of density but the hairline is more or less the same. I think my hairloss is stable for now so I'm relatively happy with the results.

    Most of my results came between month 3 and month 6.

    How much Avodart are you currently taking a week? Still taking finasteride daily with it?

    Avodart once a week and I take finasteride about 4 or 5 times a week.

    I have minoxidil but I don't often use it.

    Can you post a picture of your hair when it’s wet?

    I really like this once per week dutasteride dosing approach while still using finasteride. If receptor upregulation is a thing that results from fully obliterating DHT, it seems like a dosing regimen like this could be better than daily dosing.

    How much Finasteride are you taking? Are you cutting up Proscar to get 1.25 mg a day, or are you taking daily 1 mg Propecia?

    Chopping it up myself. I occasionally miss a day as well. I'm not uptight about the whole thing.

    Hey bro,

    Have you ever considered dropping the Dutasteride and just trying finasteride?

    I have a two year supply so I will keep at it.

    I don't see the point of doing it by half measures anyway - as long as there are no sides then there isn't a good reason not to.
