I’m 20 years old and considering quitting finasteride after 15 months as I’ve seen no effect at all, but I’ve read finasteride can make you more sensitive to dht. Is this true? By quitting will I be more susceptible to dht than I was before taking it, or will it down regulate aftertime. Many thanks.
You will not be more sensitive to DHT, but you will lose all of the benefits of the drug if you stop it. Even though you say you’ve had no positive effects, it is possible that the medication at least slowed the rate of your loss. After you stop taking finasteride you may see hair loss which would have reflected the hair you would have lost 15 months ago had you not taken the drug in the first place (which I refer to as “catch-up” hair loss).
