0.5mg Propecia Dose Results?


Has anyone cut their propecia dose down to 0.5mg and got less sides? I read on here that it's just as effective as 1mg and I get pretty noticeable sides on this dose. Does it make a difference as far as hair loss goes?



In theory and based on the studies covering this question, 0.5mg shouldn't make a significant difference in terms of hair loss compared to the full 1mg Propecia dose. This is because both 0.5mg and 1mg reduce DHT by a similar amount (~65%). However, it seems unlikely that 0.5mg would be any better in terms of side effects because side effects are caused by reduced DHT.

I would be interested to hear if anyone has tried different doses and noticed improved results or reduced side effects?
