I ordered 6 months of dutasteride from inhousepharmacy.com since it is much cheaper than picking it up from my local CVS pharmacy (6 months from inhouse is cheaper than 1 month from my local pharmacy). I am currently on Dutasteride .5mg once per day, Rogain foam 2x per day, a ketoconazole shampoo 1% and 2%, and a steroid shampoo. My dermatologist told me to alternate between the shampoos depending on how bad my dandruff and irritated scalp is. It definitely has helped.
Using these three treatments, my hair shedding has slowed down and I am definitely am having regrowth. My temples finally have some hair coming back too! I am treating this as male pattern baldness and it is working. These are the best results I have had in the last 3 years since my hair started shedding from B5. Everything else I tried hasn't worked.
I am still convinced B5 messed with our hormones and triggered/kick-started Male Pattern Baldness.
The scalp Biopsy I had a year and half ago came back as Male Pattern Baldness and all my blood tests I have had done came back normal.
I'm glad you're finally turning the corner and hope you'll continue to improve.
you mention that you're using a steroid shampoo, do you happen to know what the active ingredient is in the prep?
