I am currently taking generic fin 1mg per day. Ive been on it since November. Ive seen overall not much change. If anything my hair has gotten slighty better with some new hair and slight thickening of my hairline. Im at the point where i need to order more fin as my supply is getting low. Fin seems to be having slightly positive to no effects. I was also debating ordering Dut and starting on that as well. My thinking is if fin is kinda working why not switch to dut which is a stronger dht blocker. Why not grow / save as much hair as i can and look as good as i can? Im only 24 now and I am good looking with mu current hair but what if dut could make me look even better. Ive had no side effects from fin what so ever so im not to worried about that aspect. anyway is their something wrong with my thinking? What should I do?

You may want to talk to your doctor about first increasing your dose. Here is another thread on duasteride. https://www.baldtruthtalk.com/showthread.php?19453-Anyone-of-you-guys-have-had-success-with-long-fin-use-10-even-15-years&highlight=duasteride
