    This is not a good idea. 1mg of finasteride will reduce DHT levels by around 67% and 5 mg will decrease them by around 70%. By increasing your dose, you will barely change DHT but you will be increasing the likelihood of side effects through finasteride's other undocumented mechanisms.

    I've wondered now and then if propecia has not been working that well for me over the last few years. If so, I'd like to get off of it but then I worry that I would have massive shedding...

    Anybody been using it for some years and then stop? What happened? Did massive or noticeable hair loss occur?

    Good post.

    I had the same experience but it only took one year. Things haven't improved and im off it one year. Bad times.

    Hopefully in 10 years we won't need to be using Finasteride to stop hair loss))
