My completely non-scientific two cents. If Fin worked for you, but isn’t now, you may simply need to up the amount. My guess is you’ve got to counter an increasing amount of alpha reductase and now need more Fin to do that. If you are worried about libido issues from upping the amount, my guess is you’d find things would be no better with Dut.
I use Dut – have for a month. And I have started to see the beginnings of results with it. But I am dead downstairs, have had headaches, and even a bit of fog/depression. I am beginning to ask myself if it’s worth it. I actually be okay with being dead downstairs since I kind of need to take a break from a particularly active phase of skirt-chasing. But the headaches worry me a bit. This is your brain. This is your brain on Dut.
I thought about switching also to topically administered Dut, which some on this board have done. I don’t know if that would change the symptoms but it might lessen the dosage requirements.
