If you really want Dut's power against 5ar then you need to take it daily.

EOD or 1x weekly won't inhibit a great deal more than Fin.

Sadly nothing to report as of yet.

Although it's only been 2 1/2 months for me. Also I'm only taking it once every 10 days, so I've taken 10 pills in total so far since the start of January. Perhaps from June-Sept onwards will be a good time for me to gauge any possible results?

Thankfully though I haven't experienced any side effects (not that I'm aware of anyway) so this is an obvious plus so far.



Well it's been almost a year since I began my Duta trial. I have maintained the above dosage and timeframe since I began. Sadly I can't really report on any visual success whatsoever.

Although this isn't to say it hasn't worked at all. Perhaps it's doing a better job at maintaining what I do have better than if I were just taking Propecia.

Thankfully I haven't experienced any side effects - again, not that I'm aware of. So based on this I have decided to continue with this trial, albeit at a more frequent rate come January (the year anniversary). So I will start taking it once a week, as opposed to every 10 days.

Regardless of the outcome in a years time, I won't be taking it more frequent than once a week; and I'm not even going to consider upping the dosage.

Uncle, thanks for the update. I gave up on Dut. It was giving me gyno. Fortunately, I am able to tolerate Lipogaine. I am getting some improvement with it. With my situation, Propecia along with Lipogaine seems to be doing the trick. I also still use Proxiphen too.

Side effects were the exact reasoning for my dosing schedule. It's always best (in my opinion) to start low and work upwards.

I really want to keep my hair, and add some more if I can. Although I'm not prepared to jeopardise my overall well being. Life's too short and I'd rather have thinning hair than a host of other self induced health problems.

Good luck with the Lipogaine. Perhaps give us some updates in this thread from time to time?

Why Lipogaine?

Hey JWM, I read your other post about Lipogaine first so I responded there. Just saw this one after. I remember using it and doing fine with it. I like the control of the dropper too as it precisely tells you how much you use. Cosmetically it dries quick and the company claims it works better than standard minoxidil.

If you take a look at all the success stories, most have one thing in common. It always involves the combo of fin and minoxidil. I remember my best regrowth was always with both but the sides made me stop.

I hated the fact that I was missing out so I had to experiment with different minoxidils until I found one that be the most effective and at the same have the least amount of sides. I retried Lipogaine and I can tweak the exact amount I need to reduce the sides and still get results. Supposedly Lipogaine has been penetration than standard minoxidil. Who knows? I guess trial and error is what you do until you find a combo that works. Min Agent just did not do it for me. The foam cause too much shedding and was hard to control the precise amount. And the foam gets on my hair where as the dropper is much easier to use.

I thought I'd give another six month update on my Duta trial. Once again I can't say that I've had any real success that I have noticed since last December.

Thankfully I haven't had any major sides, and the only real side effect that I noticed was right at the beginning, which was a mild erectile side effect that soon passed after a week or so.

Maybe if I increased the frequency of taking it I might have better results, but I'm not prepared to do that. So I'll see this year out on Duta, then wean myself off of it.

My final six month update, and my two year overall update on Duta. I can't say that I've had any success with my trial over the past two years, although I'm certainly happy that I gave it a shot.

Perhaps if I'd increased to dose and frequency I may of had better results, although the flip side to that may of been some unwanted side effects. So I have decided to wean myself of off Duta over the coming months, then stop completely by March.
