I just had a quick question.
- I took 1mg of finasteride for 2 weeks and noticed I was starting to develop gyno. I immediate stopped taking finasteride and gyno has since went down. This was my only symptom.
My question is in theory…would taking only 0.25mg everyday give me a better chance of not developing gyno?
I understand there’s about 60% DHT inhibition at 0.25mg.
Like at 0.25mg, would I have less extra testosterone that would get converted to estrogen, and give me a better chance at not developing gyno?
If this is a stupid way of thinking just to continue taking finasteride, please let me know. I’d appreciate your honesty!
Since it stopped quickly, you can try the lower dose and then see. I always suggest that you clear everything with your doctor.
