Last febuary I started using minox once a day and nizoral every other day and saw results, but once this winter hit I started to shed again like crazy, like you said, I can scrape the sebum off my scalp. I'm thinking its a big problem and maybe saw can help.

320mg per day.

RE: My Regimen For Reversing Hairloss, and Increasing Vitality In Your 20s
Not the OP here, but I'm taking the standard 320 mg dose first thing in the morning (when test levels are highest, at least for me). After about 3 months on it, my gym-induced hair loss has stopped in its tracks. I say gym-induced because my hair loss accelerated dramatically when I switched to heavy full body workouts 3 days a week, and cardio/martial arts on the alternating days. I tried minoxidil, but I didn't like the initial shed and found the daily application process tedious. Perhaps more importantly, minoxidil didn't seem to make any difference on my hair loss, though it did make my hair grow faster (at least initially because of increased blood flow to the scalp, then hair growth returned to normal pace). Additionally, the minoxidil gave me deep forehead wrinkles, making me look 5-10 years older than I am.

All in all, saw palmetto is doing a much better job for me than minoxidil. I look at it like a low dosage of propecia without the side effects or needing a prescription.

Im curious about the saw palmetto as well.

"Be a leader and never ever follow" That's what my father, that's what he always told me. So with those words boldly spoken, he sent me down a long and hard road.

Been taking it for 2 years with no side effects. Hair loss has completely stabilised in that time. I'm taking a few other supplements as well as using Minoxidil too so not really sure what's done what..

Has anyone tried using even lower doses of finasteride than 1mg a day? Or have a GP talk about it?

I read an article that says that DHT levels are significantly lowered as much as two thirds with as little as .2mg a day. Though they said that they thought further studies were needed to confirm this. I was thinking of starting on .5 mg every other day and see how that goes. My hair loss is just starting but its concerning.
