Great post! But where are the complaints on decreased sex drive, etc? Does Dutasteride just INCREASE libido? Also, what about side effects in terms of acne (either increase/decrease)?

All the best,
BB

Theres no way i would take this, not FDA approved for hair loss, is it not a steroid?


#4

David, I don’t know if you remember a few years back, there was a guy that swore blind that Dut caused him to hallucinate.


#5

Umm,

I don’t know whether that list above is supposed to be representative of all users of Dut or not.

But just the way it is now, IMO that stuff above can’t possibly be a balanced set of feedback. Not without having a bunch of sexual complaints in the mix too.


#6

Wow! Awesome job, Hairsite.


#7

Yes , it is a steroid.
It is not approved by FDA for treating hair loss.

But still it has been found to be very effective.

» Wow! Awesome job, Hairsite.

Would it be worth the extra cost to go from .5mg to 1.0mg of Dut? I have not had any side effects with .5mg but it would be interesting to see if there would be any more positive results with the bigger dosage.


#9

Thanks Hairsite

Any current stories from people who have been on avodart for 5 years etc??

Cheers

I have been on Dutasteride for nearly four years and I haven’t had any problems and have kept the same amount of hair since.

I’ve been on Propecia for 6 years now and all of a sudden it stopped working 5 months ago. I upped my dosage to 2.5 mg and still am loosing close to 50 hairs per day in my towel. Last year there would be 5 max. I want to get on Dut as soon as possible. Does anyone know how I can get a script for it? Is there a legitimate place on the net or do I have to con my doctor into writing it for something else. Any info is appreciated.
