I started at norwood 1.75. Good density. Started taking finasteride 1mg a day, going as high as 5mg a day for the last 3 months of my use (couldn't be fucked splitting the pill anymore; I know 5mg is not substantially more effective than 1mg). I stayed on for about a year but I took a 2 month break in between (no unusual shedding noticed during this time). Overall finasteride did nothing for me but maintain what I had. 

In January this year I started taking dutasteride. Within four WEEKS I was noticing regrowth on temples. Within 4 months  was complete nw0.5 with excellent density. I got accused of wearing a wig by someone, I kid you not. And I had him pull my hair to prove to him that it's real. In my experience at least, finasteride and dutasteride can't be compared. They're in entirely different leagues. Most people regain a full norwood and more on dutasteride. I rarely see the same results with finasteride alone. I used minoxidil for several weeks in early 2017 but quit because I was noticing dark circles under my eyes. Minoxidil is pure trash. stay away. We take hair loss medications to regrow/maintain hair to look youthful. Minoxidil is the very antithesis of youth and should be avoided at all costs. I don't use nizoral or anything else. The only hair loss medication I take is dutasteride and it's done all the work.

I would advise you to remain on finasteride for at least a year, then switch to 0.5mg dutasteride a day (that's 1 pill). I'm almost certain you'll notice regrowth on it. Like someone said on hairlosstalk, dutasteride is a cure for MPB, you just need to take it early (and not be part of the unfortunate few who don't metabolize it). Stay on fin for a year so you can experience a year of moderate DHT suppression, see how it affects you. In my internet opinion if you are 
- above 22 yrs old
- have no preexisting medical issues
- in otherwise good health 

Dutasteride is a pretty safe drug. There is some concern about long term suppression of DHT causing insulin resistance, but the risk appears to be immaterial. Anyway after my steroid cycle I'll dial down to 1mg fin again and see what happens. If I start losing the hair that I regrew, I'll jump back on dut. But fin seems to be a good maintenance drug. It's hard to say whether it would maintain hair that I only regrew at 95% DHT suppression though. 
Thanks for the info dude, I appreciate your in-depth explanation. Before taking fin I was thinking about getting a hair transplant, but  honestly dutasteride sounds more effective and less of a hassle. I just hope I see enough regrowth, if I do end up getting a norwood or so I might not need to fuck around with a transplant.
