    Cool Potentially reduce dosage of Fin and Minox

    Hi,

    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?

    I wouldn't reduce the Minox of you may get a major shed. The Fin should be fine don't think that will make a big difference.

    Thanks Mr Clean. So to confirm, you'd say: yes, you can try reducing the Fin. No, don't reduce the minox?
