As a long term poster on here who hasn’t been around for a while I’m just after a little advice.
Basically, the wife and I are going to be starting a family soon and I want to kick Dutasteride a few months prior to trying. I know they say there is no risk whatsoever to the foetus, but this is the same ‘they’ who would love to force an embargo on the manufacture of all generics and watch millions who can’t afford branded drugs die of AIDS. I basically want to be completely clean over this period, but I don’t want to lose the ground I have made on Dut which hand-on-heart I believe has been fantastic.
In terms of hairloss, I first noticed I was going bald in 1999 (I was 20 at the time). I did nothing but panic for a little while, and then tried minox. It didn’t really work too well. I then incrementally tried Finasteride, which worked better the more of it I took. And then I moved onto Dut which I believe has halted my hairloss at the NW1.5-2 stage ever since. I’ve been on it since its release in early 2003, at an average dose of 3 pills per week, and aside from a bit of mental fogginess in the early days the drug has treated me very well.
It has been easy to chart my progress. I am the third of 4 brothers, and the only one who is the good side of a NW4. I know they say it isn’t always genetic, but the coincidence is enough for me not to believe this. People are amazed when they see me with my brothers, and always ask how I managed to avoid the curse!
Basically, I want to switch from alpha blockers to a natural remedy. I have read a lot of good things about Hogan’s regimen, and wondered if GLA + EPA is the way to go. For me it looks as if DHT inhibition was the key though, although I’ve read some horror stories about Saw P.
I’m thinking of taking borage and fish oil, although I’m unsure of the doseage to try. Can anyone give me any advice as to whether or not this will work, or any other ideas?
