I have been using Finasteride successfully for the last 10 years. In addition I recived progesterone scalp injections every 3-4 months in the same time frame. Lately ( the last 4 months)my front is thinning and something aint working anymore. I think the scalp injections may be novel and maybe never worked? However I split a 5mg finasteride, and take a 1/2 every other day.
Is it time to try the avodart? It looks like the dosage might be suspect.Can you take it at 0.5 mg everyday, as I realize the 1/2 life is longer than proscar? I am a 56yr old male,good health. please help!
You need to discuss these issues with your doctor! I do not prescribe or inject progesterone in my practice since I see no medical or clinical benefit from doing it. I also do not recommend 2.5mg of finasteride since 1mg works just as well for the treatment of MPB. In other words, there is no benefit that I can see and the reports on the 1mg do seem reasonable. Furthermore, I generally recommend taking finasteride as directed once a day, since the medication is cleared from your bloodstream within 24 hrs. Before considering dutasteride (Avodart), I would try taking finasteride in the correct dosage and correct regimen. You suggested that the finasteride may fizzle out and become less effective. That may be, but are you willing to deal with more side effects with dutasteride? Before changing any medications, please consult with your doctor that prescribed you these medications.
