I’m 20 years old and I’ve noticed the corners of my hair falling a bit, nothing serious but I plan to keep it that way. As soon as I noticed some unusual hair fall I did immense research and came upon these drugs and decided to pull the trigger.
Anyways, I’ve used Finasteride for about a month and got heavy sides upon the first week. I’ve been diagnosed with Major Depression my entire life and don’t take antidepressants but, damn. I had so many suicidal thoughts the first week. I had little to no boners, trouble sleeping and loss of appetite, I even had really bad nightmares. So, a month passes and I push through (probably a bad thing) but I run out of Finasteride because I bought one box of Propecia (thankfully). So, I go back to the pharmacy hoping to get more and they say they ran out. I don’t take any DHT blockers for another month or so, little to no hairloss. I go back and ask a for Propecia and they still don’t have it. I eye a box of AvoDart which is Dutasteride (0.5 mg) and buy it immediately. So far, I’m 15 days in with little to no sides, no improvements but I’m only half a month in. My main concern; is my body immune to Dutasteride? With Finasteride, I got a reaction albeit a negative one from my body but that somewhat confirmed that the drug is working. With Dut I’m half a month in with no sides and I don’t know if I should be concerned or not.
You should get a HAIRCHECK test ( https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ ) and then once you establish metrics on your hair, if you are balding and it is proved by such measurements, then finasteride is the drug to use not the non-approved Dutaasteride.
