I’m currently taking both Propecia (1 mg) and Avodart (0.5 mg) daily and am noticing good results. However, I’m wondering if this combination has the potential to be unsafe – can it mess with hormonal levels? Does taking more of these enzyme inhibitors leave more testosterone in the body?
I am not sure if what you are doing is safe or unsafe, but I would never recommend it to any of my patients. I would follow up with your doctor who is treating you and ask for his/her opinion. Did the same doctor prescribe both medications? Do you have prostate issues or are you strictly trying to treat hair loss?
The sexual side effects are more common with Avodart (dutasteride), but when you add Propecia (finasteride) to your routine, I wonder if you have any sex life left.
