Can spironolactone help reduce androgenetic alopecia even if my testosterone is normal? If so, what dose do you recommend?

In brief: Maybe

If your alopecia is truly androgenic, then, by definition, it is driven by androgen (dht).
Spironolactone will provide blockade which may help. Your md should give the dose.
