Avodart and DHT levels. (Drugs & Medications)

posted by brm, his room, 19.01.2008, 00:02

Look at the first graph. Consider the 0.1 and 1mg curves. Since I guess your daily dose of avo is the standard 0.5mg you have to interpolate and roughly take an average of those two.
0.1mg: DHT suppression=100-40=60% So, you're asking: how long for the DHT level to regain half of the "lost" value. This would be 30%. So 40 + 30 = 70% The curves says: day 45 -50. So roughly 48. And the answer is: at a 0.1mg daily intake for 28 days, cutting avo altogether will cause the DHT to regain half of its baseline value in 48-28= 20 days (3 weeks). And the DHT will back to normal at day 65, so that is after 65-28=37 days after quitting the drug.
1mg: The suppressed dht is around 90% since the average remaining percentage is 10% (read the curve). And it says that on day 84 ( that is 84-28=56 days after quitting) the DHT is 40% of its baseline value. So it has NOT YET got back half of the lost ground.
Since they chart 0.1 1 and 10 mg curves, they may assume that the interpolation should be done logarithmically. So as a conclusion, we could say that by their results, taking 0.5 mg of dut daily (which must be your case) would give some 75% of DHT suppression and that you would be around 40% at day 60. So the DHT should have taken half of its lost points around a month after quitting. 2-3 months or more (?) should probably be needed for the dht to be back at its pre drug level.
