Dutasteride is one of those drugs where on paper it outperforms finasteride. However, after browsing hair loss forums for 13 years I’ve seen only a few cases where people benefited more from dut after trying fin. But that’s not saying much since that’s all anecdotal.

 

ive tried dut roughly 3 different times in the last 6 years or so and I can’t say it did any better than fin for me. I started losing ground on fin after about 5 years. However dut gave me more sude effects- it threw my Hormonal blood test results off on a few measurements. I haven’t retested since dropping it roughly 7 months ago. Again., sides differ with everybody and just because I experienced them doesn’t mean someone else will.

My physician told me that Dutasteride is 5X more powerful than Finasteride, and to avoid it.

In my opinion, Dutasteride is a very powerful anti-androgen. The FDA reviewed it as a possible hair loss treatment, but did not approve it and I believe for good reason. Some guys take it with no side effects, but then again some people smoke until they are 80 and never get lung cancer, doesn't mean the majority of us will be the same way. DHT is still a necessary hormone for most men and Dutasteride inhibits the production almost entirely. Finasteride is safe to use and works for the majority of men, I would advise to stick with Finasteride.

I moved from Finasteride after 17 years up to Dut and never looked back. No sides and hair is solid. Info and video on my site.
