Saw Palmetto and finasteride together, is it better?

I was wondering what people’s experiences were taking these two together? I read that Saw Palmetto (if it does indeed inhibit 5ar) works on the type 1 and 2 5ar whereas fin works mostly on type 2. Based on this I figured it could add extra inhibition of DHT if it does indeed work. On the other hand, it might be possible that the two interact and cancel each others effects out somehow

Clinical studies on Saw Palmetto have shown that it is a very weak DHT inhibitor and as such can not be effective in the treatment of hair loss
