    Lightbulb I'm changing from Finasteride and upping the juice to Dutasteride

    So the time has come after nearly 17 years on 1mg finasteride daily to up the anti and I'm going to start now taking 0.5mg Dutasteride daily instead as i feel I've possibly now started to lose ground in the crown region do to the attack of DHT.

    Ive had an incredible run with finasteride as it regrew and helped keep my mid/crown for nearly two decades but after monitoring my crown for a couple of years now i feel it is time to get ahead of the game and increase my defence against the dreaded DHT.

    I've spoken at length with prescribing Dr too here in the UK and he's been very helpful and informative. I've also spoken to a number of guys who've made this move from finasteride to Dutasteride who've had positive results so feel this is an informed move and one I'm hopeful will benefit me.

    After 17 years too on finasteride with no side effects I'm also hopeful i'll transition on to it with no issues either.

    I will keep you informed periodically on any progress and i'll be making a documented blog on my website too.

    Regards
    Spex

    Please keep us posted on your progress, I'm thinking of doing the same

    Do you plan to gradually introduce dut or just switch to daily? Are you taking generic or brand name?

    Does anyone if any prior studies have been conducted with men that have either switched or used combined dosing?

    Be sure to monitor your water retention or even your BMI. I tried this a decade ago and became a wee bit bloated.

    Will you be using glaxosmithkline?

    My hair has gotten better after switching to proscar/merck after 2.5 years on a generic.
