    When and why did you stop taking Finasteride? And did you find the minoxidil helping? I've been solely on Finasteride for a year and I'm going to do a comparison shot soon, I get the feeling that I've lost a little ground.

    You'll obviously experience a shed on dutasteride just like you did using finasteride. Remember dutasteride is a lot stronger than finasteride so the initial shed will likely be worse too.. don't worry about dutasteride not working for you. You're gaurenteed to maintain and regrow using that drug unless you have alopecia totalis

    I've never seen a study on reflex hyperandrogegism with dutasteride. Pretty much everything I've read on dutasteride has been a positive review of the drug, people proclaiming that it has saved their life etc. I'm not using it now, but I've read and know enough about hairloss to last a life time. I research and obsess over it like I'm Norwood 6.. kind of sad tbh

    My hair loss isn't bad as of now but the time will come when I begin to use finasteride.. probably quite soon to be honest, considering using it as a preventative measure. Then if and when finasteride eventually stops working for me I'll switch to dutasteride.

    Because I value my hair a lot like everyone else does on this forum. Therefore I want to make sure I'm extensively informed within this subject so when I do start to bald, I know what to do and how to save my hair. Identifying and fighting the balding at its earliest stage is key.

    Exactly, it's a very small chance that dutasteride will fuck up your hair. The chances of that happening to you are next to none.. I know it's a scary drug to take with the alteration of your hormones but people don't half exaggerate the occurance of side effects on these sites. From reading online you'd think that 9/10 people get sides effects from finasteride which is just bullshit. It's the complete opposite, 1/10 if that. People don't half overdramatise the chances and risks of using these drugs.. like I said, it's dangerous but not to the extent you'd think from reading on forum sites like this.

    Just give dutasteride a chance mate, I'd at least wait another 3 months before even considering a judgement yet.

    To be fair I tend to avoid all negative posts on here anyways. Why waste your time reading and channeling negative thoughts when you've got enough of them occupying your mind already. You're asking to be depressed.

    I try not to read negative stuff on dutesteride. I know the risks and right now I'm enjoy the best hair ever and my youth. Keep this discussion going :)

    Surprised 2.5mg isn't improving your hair !? How long has it been since taking 2.5mg ..maybe keep driving through this ugly phase and it will improve

    Is the colour change due to the thickening of your hair? If so, guess that goes to show the power of dutasteride. You were basically blonde at the start of this thread and you've gone almost jet black.

    I didn't really get an ugly phase I just noticed it slowly improving and darkening. At first I kept cutting my hair super short then gradually I noticed how healthy my hair was looking so I decided to grow it out. Then I had people saying it looked like I was wearing a wig!!!
