I have decided to half the dosage to see whether this will help. But my problem is that out of the 7-8 months that I have been on propecia, the first 4 were on proper propecia and then I bought a year’s supply of Dr Reddy’s Finax (generic version) during a visit to India in December. I have been very happy with that. So basically I stopped going to the doctor who initially prescribed me the Propecia here in the UK. I was just being over charged and I felt I was being taken advatange of.
So all I need advice on is how to switch from taking 1mg pill a day to half a pill a day. I don’t want to suffer from shock hair loss and loose all the gains plus more if I stop. But I need to stop for a week perhaps or slighlty longer maybe so that my erections and libido issues have a chance to normalise.
I would really appreciate your guidance on this.
Best regards !
I don’t feel comfortable giving you prescription advice, as I’m not your prescribing physician. Generally speaking, to switch from 1mg to 0.5mg a day, just get a pill cutter and take only half a pill each day. Libido issues should get back to normal on their own with the half dose, and if not, I’d see your doctor again to find out if there’s any other issues at play.
