My full routine is this: progesterone cream to temples few times a day (1-4, I sometimes apply it, it dries out, and 15 minutes later I put some more there, I use swansons brand), I used to empty some dut capsules (Dr reddy’s dutas) into the progesterone cream, but run out of dut so I dont use it anymore. Ketoconazole shampoo (Revita) daily, sometimes I add PTO shampoo (neutrogena t-gel european version for greasy hair, contains Pyroctone olamine) to it and use both mixed, I leave the shampoo 15 minutes on my scalp each day (I work at home so I can do it without problems ). I DO NOT use minox, nor any other topicals.
Now the pills: was on fin most of this year and several years before, on dut for few months this year, fin again now because I run out of dut. When taking fin I take 1.25mg / day (quarter of the fincar made by cipla). When on dut I used to take 0.5mg caps a day (Dr reddy’s dutas). I take maca root (1-4 what looks to me like 500mg capsule a day, I buy it at random places, but the ones they sell on swansons are fine as well) (that gave me teenage hair density all over, but the temples), multivitamins (centrum brand), colostrum (good to get rid of your scalp itch, and allergies. I use Barny’s Colostrum brand, 1 or 2 caps, every other day or so, on empty stomach, with loads of water (it needs to go through your stomach), then I eat on it), vitamin B complex (local generic brand rly), sometimes coenzyme Q10 (bought on swansons), when I was taking DUT, I was also taking ZMA (3x 500mg caps before the bed)(bought at a local gym) at night together with the dut. ZMA increases T and possibly can damage your hair, so investigate it first, please. Recently I added kudzu root (just an experiment rly, brand is Pharma active, I pop one capsule sometimes 2 a day). I am going to evaluate L-Taurine supplementation next.
If not stated otherwise, take the supplements together with your food.
I’m not too obsessed with dosages rly, I often skip doses, sometimes take less, on other days take more. The key stuff is oral finasteride which I have been on for years already and rarely skip a dose, the revita+pto shampoo 15 minutes a day, again sometimes I’m in hurry, but most of the days its 15 mins rly), Maca root (I recommend 2 or more 500mg caps a day), and progesterone cream applied to temples several times a day (mornings gently so it does not mess up your hair, evenings, use a bit more, let it soak in, and then add some). If you are already using minox, stick with it. If you are not, then my decision would be to stay away from it, but its your choice rly.
