I'm not sure as to why Dr. Cinik was so deeply involved in mine in comparison to others. But if there is an option to have him do it I would highly recommend doing that.
Thanks for checking out my results, your in a simmilar position (although you had more hair in the frontal third) that I was in. Aim for the higher amount if possible as it will keep with the consistency of your thick hair.
The benefit I see is the fact that you know for sure that you are taking 1mg. The pill does not come scored so it is difficult to get a perfect 1/4. Not sure if the slight variation will make a difference long term.
