When to start ADT

I just updated my post under Allen Z and my history is there. I am looking for advice/opinions on whether or not to start Lupron. My PSA is 1.9, but actually could be closer to 4 since I take Finasteride. My oncologist wants to start Lupron at 4, but I don't want to. I completely understand that there is no standard, gold or otherwise, as to when to start the protocol of ADT, just wondering if anyone has come across any current data on the subject. I of course have searched the web and have come up the usual non-answers--I am not being cynical, it's just the nature of the disease I know.

Thanks,

Allen Z
