Just coming back to leave an anecdote of my experiences on fin, as I remember how useful I found these sorts of posts in the past. I’ve been on fin 2.5 years now. I was initially on the recommended dosage of 1mg until just before the 2 year mark sides started to appear in my life (loss of libido, morning wood, slight feeling of emotional numbness/dissociation). I decided to drop down to 0.5mg and it has honestly been the best move I could have imagined. A lot of posts that I read seemed to suggest that this would not make any difference but by god has it. Im now roughly 6 months on from changing dose and I feel virtually as I did pre fin.. and my hair is still going strong as ever (way way thicker than pre fin). If you change dose what I would say is just ‘patience’. It probably took around 3 months after changing for my body to ‘stabilize’ but I’m fairly certain now I’ve just found a dose that works for me.
Reducing the dose from 1mg to half the dose will decrease the effects by only 20% but you should work with your doctor on this plan. What is your Personalized Master Plan?
