QUESTION: Hello Dr Fisher

Sir can one take 1 mg finisteride 6 days a week and 1 avodart 0.5mg once a week for androgenic alopecia?

Show me the science behind you thoughts. All the meetings that I attend have never talked about your theory. I think you need to go back to school to get your facts straight.
