Is 0.5mg finasteride EOD safe?

I’ve been taking .25mg every other day for 7 weeks now and my hairloss – especially around the crown – has only accelerated. Is it safe to keep going with this dose?

Safety is not an issue, effectiveness for low dosage as you are doing is the issue. This dose, based upon the Merck studies, is about 50% as effective as the full 1mg dose.
