Just wanted to ask you a question about dosage. Most drugs become more effective when the dosage is increased. I assume that’s why doctors start their patients off at a small dose and increase it if the patient isn’t responding to treatment.
However, I believe you’ve mentioned that increasing the dose of finisteride wouldn’t give better results. Wouldn’t that statement contradict the fact the as dose increases so does effectiveness? For example 5& minoxidil is more effective than 2%. So it would follow that a 5mg dose per day of finisteride would give better results than a 1mg dose.
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Drugs are not always more effective with increase in dose. So your presumption is wrong. There may be a maximum effective dose and anything above that is a risk for unwanted side effects.
Propecia is finasteride in 1mg strength. It has been determined by studies that 1mg is just as effective as 5mg. Taking more will not improve its efficacy on treating androgenic alopecia. Increasing the dose will likely cause more side effects.
