OMG he really believes the only reason why topical Dutasteride works is because it goes systemic?From what I could understand he believes that Topical Dutasteride works because it goes systemic and the sticking to oral finasteride is easier in the long rung that applying a topical. He does acknowledge the sides on Finasteride orally but believes they can be managed by adjusting the dosage, for example 0.25mg EOD or even less. 0.25mg twice a week.
He was surprised with my crown though and so no miniaturization and knew I was only on Topical Dutasteride for 18 months.
He said I can continue with Topical Dutasteride but add low dose oral finasteride which I will do Topically. He said he is open minded to change his mind as more research comes in on this.
You have to understand these surgeons have been using this pill for 10 to 25 years on their patients with good results to stabilize their androgenic alopecia and this is a new thing. So is CB0301.
I totally understand his point. He works with Finasteride for years, the patients who take it have a better end result etc. But I totally don't understand you. You change your well working regime because a Doctor(who obviously doesn't take anything by himself or doesn't do any research on the topic) just because he says so? I mean yes Dr. Ferreira is a top notch FUE surgeon but probably half of the readers here in this thread have gained more knowledge about topical/oral application of dutasteride/finasteride than him.
This Thread exists for a reason, we get f*****g side effects and it's so important to us that we spend hours online chatting with other guys around the globe. I just would have expected you to stay with your regime and tell him he has no idea what he's talking about, because he obviously isn't. I still like him and are looking forward get my hair done by him tho.
