    Default Starting propecia. Dosage??

    I finally decided to start taking propecia. I have a question about the dosage. My doctor prescribed me 1mg pills... I haven't filled the script yet, but I'm assuming these pills can be broken in half, quarters, etc if desired.

    Do I really need to take an entire 1mg daily right from the gate (as prescribed)? Or should I ease into it with half or even a quarter pill per day? I've read online that a .25mg dosage can be just as effective as 1mg, as it doesn't take much, as long as the pill is in your system

    And is it safe to crush the pills into halves, quarters, etc?

    Thanks guys

    if you can take 1mg once or twice a week, why can't you keep just taking that, instead of upping it to everyday? how much effectiveness will you get from taking it once or twice per week, as opposed to daily?
