    I would continue using it 2-3 months no matter what. Your body should adjust over time to lower levels of DHT and sides should go away.

    the official study shows that, on average, the subjects were able to maintain/improve their hair for 5 years.
    Another study came out saying that for something like half the people it will work 10 years.
    15 year is kind of rare actually.

    DHT levels go down as you age actually....

    avodart, or you just hope that something better comes along within the next 5 year which it will in this case.

    I don't want to mess forum much, so I'll just bump my old thread...

    I have read somewhere that people do blood tests before taking finasteride... can't find that thread now...

    Anyway, what exactly should I test?

    Thank you

    I would check testosterone, estrogen, and DHT. Personally, I'd be most concerned about estrogen levels.
