Hi guys I’ve been on Avodart for 9 yo 10 years 0.5mg everyday. I was wondering if it’s ok to drop the amount I take a week down to 3 or 4 times. I understand that Avodart has a very long half life. Will reducing it weekly cause any hairloss ? And what are others experience and weekly dosage?
Thanks ;)

I’m on Finasteride, been on it over 12 years. For the last few years my intake has fluctuated as I forget to take it for days. Usually, I’ll take it 5 times a week. I don’t think it’s made any difference to my regime.
Maybe give the Avodart a try at a slightly reduced rate to see what happens, maybe 5 times per week.

I'm with Bigmac on this i too forget to take my meds on occasion as well and it hasn't made any difference in terms of loss. Personally i highly doubt it would make a difference if you reduce it very slightly.
After being on it years what is the reason your considering lowering it a little dude? just curious
