    Default Started testosterone gel. Should I increase finasteride dose?

    Hi all. I am now on 50mg testosterone as one (of many) treatments for CFS/ME. It is really helping CFS, but am also shedding a bit more and consistently.

    I'm taking 1.25mg finasteride daily. Would it make sense to go up to 2.5mg/day to offset the testosterone treatment?

    Also using minoxidil and ketoconazole shampoo.

    Wikipedia says 1mg finasteride has slightly less effect than 5mg. Therefore... going up to 2.5mg won't help much. So dutasteride.
