    Default Correct way to reduce Finasteride dosage

    Hey fellow thinkers,

    I am attempting to find the proper way to reduce Fin dosage over time to minimize sides.

    Any information is welcome.

    Hi Wake,

    I'm recopying my post (below) as was trying to do the same. Did you ever get an answer? Have any success?


    34 y/o.
    Norwood Type II

    Current Treatment:
    2 years of 1mg Fin and 0.5ml of 5% Minox (applied nightly on crown of head)
    Previously: very much on border of TYpe II and Type III but good regrowth around temples, etc.

    Potential Treatment:?
    Reducing Minox to 0.5ml of 5% applied every two nights, OR
    Reducing 1mg Fin to every two nights

    My goal is two-fold:
    1) minimize drug-taking in general
    2) reduce tolerance so I have ability to "up" dosage in 5 to 10 years.

    Has anyone tried doing this? Any thoughts?
