On paper, dutasteride definitely should work better than finasteride, however, would there be a chance that dutasteride just doesn't work for someone, and finasteride would respond better?

I've been taking both daily for the last few months, and I got massive shed. The crown area is very noticeable. I've decided I should drop either one. I'm thinking of dropping fin, and take dut daily from now on.

Is there a chance that dut just doesn't work well with me, and I should avoid it?

These questions are 100% impossible to answer and I believe any doctor will tell you that. The bodies physiology and mechanisms of follicle function as well as all the factors involved make this question hard to answer. Some people lose more hair on fin, some regrow it... some people like me, have horrible scalp sensations and hair falling out every where on it. Theoretically, yes, DUT should be more effective, given it blocks both enzymes responsible for converting testosterone into DHT, which is accept as being the major culprit in hair loss. If you don't have any sides on DUT, I would say stick with that.

So do you take fin or dut? Are you saying taking fin makes your hair falls out more?

The problem is, I have massive shed when I take both fin and dut every day, I don't know if THIS IS the reason, or my body just doesn't like dut.

Doctors don't know much, because they don't care about hairs.
