Does Length of Treatment Matter or Just Amount?

Recommended Posts

For example, would someone experience the same long-term result on 80mg x 2 months, 40mg x 4 months, and 20mg x 8 months? My thought was that the longer treatment tends to induce better results but this is purely anecdotal, not based on evidence, so am probably 100% wrong, lol.

Both are important factors. Id say legnth is slighly more important as being on the drug on a high dose for only 1 month probably wont give it enough time to take effect. Where as a 4month+ course on any dose will let the drug have time to reduce the size of your glands.

It doesn't matter how long you're on it, what matter is how much you take in total by the end of the course. So if you are on a lower dose, you have to stay on it longer, but you might get fewer side-effects.
