Just Started Generic Avodart (Dutasteride) 2.5mg Daily


#41

» Yes dave. I think out of all the treatments I’ve ever used, minox gave the
» best results. In sum, it thickened and grew back hair that were very
» noticable. It’s a shame I can’t tolerate the mess from it. Keep in mind I
» would use 4ml twice a day all over my scalp.
»
» Minox 5%
»
»
» » Hey mj, did you see any benefits from minox when you were using it?

i agree when i started minox i had quite some shedding the following days… and actually the mess was so unbearable that i gave up on it before it had a chance to show benefits… so all i experienced was shedding basically :wink:


#42

One month and 3 days now…

I notice these past 2 or 3 days I am forgetting a lot of things. I would forget important phone calls I was supposed to make, where my keys are, phone numbers, important self-notes, etc. etc. all very frequently.

I have not come across any resources showing it can effect the memory. Although I am aware it can possibly cause a foggy mind. I really don’t know what the heck a foggy mind is- I guess I would know if I experienced it. So I will cross that out.

Will continue as usual, hoping either side effect noted above will either subside, or confirm. My mind is not something I want to tamper with.

Yeh sure. Feel free to ask me anything here about dut or other treatments or hair transplants as well. The reason why I started this thread was to keep everyone informed along the way on my dutsteride treatment. To make notes of side effects and progress along the way.

I sent you an email. Confirm that you’ve received it.

Today I will add to my regime ginko biloba. I didn’t think I ever used this stuff before till I took a look at the bottle today. I used this stuff 4 yrs ago and I can tell you right first hand that it’s excellent for focus and memory. I took it while I was taking body building supplements. Combine this with something like Nitrix. Nitrix is a vasodiolator. It increases the diameter of your veins and in return causes all the nutrients in your blood to travel at a very rapid pace. That’s why they say try not to cut your self while on vasodiolators because it will bleed a lot for a long time. Ginko Biloba is a blood thinner to also increase the blood flow throughout the body. If you take any meds and/or supplements these two combined will transport them throughout your body immediately. Focus and memory is enhanced with Ginko Biloba. I hope it makes a difference with my loss of memory lately which I’m ASSUMING is from dutasteride.


#46

MJ how long do you think sheds last?


#47

Varies from person to person. It can b eas little as one week or as much as 6-8 weeks.

» MJ how long do you think sheds last?


#48

Since adding Ginkgo Biloba I notice I’m much more focused and alert.

I recommend this stuff to ANYONE (as long as you don’t have illnesses with easy and perfusive bleeding).

I’m sure it will only get better within time and will enhance the benefits of dutasteride as well.

hey mj,

still experiencing any shed? i’ve been on dut for about a week now… no noticeable side effects so far… i’m feeling fine… and i think i’m already losing less hair than before… hard to say for sure… it’s hard to differentiate between what’s real and what one wants to believe.

Gingko Biloba Rocks. Can’t emphasise enough for everyone out there to try it.
Much beter focus, improved memory, and get hard-ons everytime I see my girl. Awsome stuff.

Shed has slowed down a bit, still no visible improvement yet. Will try to take some photos once I borrow a camera soon.

What the $&%@@# !! I’m getting super fatigue and lazy again! Just want to sleep all day! Damn you Dut @*$#&… but hair has stopped shedding :smiley:

» sleep all day! Damn you Dut @*$#&… but hair has stopped shedding :smiley:

hey man,
stick to it… maybe your fatigue doesnt even have anything to do with the dut?
i’ve been experiencing some increased shedding… as i posted somewhere else earlier, i feel i have increased shedding especially in tiny miniaturised hairs… i’m hoping its a good sign that these strongly affected hairs will grow back stronger…

keep us posted… i’m right behind you :wink:


#58

I know it’s from dut. Your shedding is a good thing don’t sweat it. I’m off dut in about a week and all other meds and herbal stuff. My hairtransplant surgery is in March… nervous. But i’l be back on after the first week of march along with some additions like minoxidil.

My shedding has not only come to a halt but I lose probably 5-10 hair a day if anything… down from a fist full of hair clogging the drain everytime i showered. Hope the shedding doesn’t begin again when i take a month off and back on again.

Why don’t you add minoxidil to your dut? u’ll be amazed with the results.


#59

Tomorrow will be the my last day on dut till post surgery in March.

“I lost all my hair, but this morning I found it all over my pillow, shower,
t-shirt, sink, comb…”


#60

Mj, when you were last using minox when did you see results? Could you also describe the shed if any occurred. Thanks so much. I think I might add it to dut and record my progress.
