View Full Version : Rogaine & switching doses

07-21-2014, 09:38 AM
Hey everyone. I started minoxidil 5% 2 x daily Dec 1st on 2012 and taking 1.25 mg fin daily. By June my hair was crazy thick. Almost like I was a teenager again. I was 32.

I went down to using minoxidil 1 x daily, and continued w/ finasteride. Everything was fine until the last 3 months. I noticed the crown thinned out a bit. Not as bad as when I started, but still not like it was last summer.

I went back up to using minoxidil 2 x daily.

Any ever messed around w/ their dosage like this? If so, what were your results?

Thanks all.

studies on minox shows that most gains are seen by 4-6 months

fin, a year

could be that you cut your minos dose or that sometimes the drugs just stop working

if you notice the latter, you might have to switch to dut

Thanks for the reply. What do you mean by "dut?"
