Hey guys. Need some advice RE: dosage from experienced fin/dut users. I have never taken either but have to face the reality that if I want to keep my hair, I will have to take one or the other. To start with, what would be a relatively safe dose of fin? I don't want to take 1mg daily. I am thinking of 0.5mg every other day or 0.25mg daily. Call me overly optimistic, but I feel that a better treatment is just around the corner and I want to bridge the gap. I have serious concerns about sides and that is what has prevented me from taking fin or dut for almost 8 years. I want to start on a really low dose. What would you guys recommend? Would I be better to start on low dose fin or low dose dut? What kind of dose would lessen the odds of getting sides, if at all? I use minoxidil but hasn't really done anything. I also use RU which has helped some. I basically want to limit the chance of getting sides as much as possible. It's the sexual ones that concern me the most. Thank you.
