    The Desire To Be 17 Again

    I'm not bringing it up for my own benefit. I can interpret the clinical studies and evidence just fine, well enough to know that any risk of marked side effects is under 1% when controlled for placebo. It's more for the lurkers and the skeptics. As you can see there are several hysterical...

    The Desire To Be 17 Again

    Hey Agustin! Now that one month has elapsed, here is what I can say about finasteride in terms of the following, Positive changes regarding the condition of my hair and scalp: It still seems too early to say anything definitively but shedding has decreased, my hair feels less greasy and the...

    Cool Smoke's jokes

    16+ is legal in HK and for me I've never been one to adhere strictly to societal norms as long as I'm not at risk of being incarcerated. Just my 2 cents.

    Cool Smoke's jokes

    Nah haha not at all I just thought Elliot Rodger's videos were funny (I don't condone his barbaric behaviour though). I can see why the guys on bodybuilding forum just thought he was a troll and wasn't being serious, he certainly comes across as someone who's just trying to imitate Patrick...

    Best dry shampoo to thicken hair?

    Hanz de Fuko Quicksand is a hybrid dry shampoo and styling wax. So you could certainly use this as your standalone styling product as well.

    === FINASTERIDE === Norwood + Whats your Dose? :) Only finasteride Users please* As you can see in finasteride's DHT conversion inhibition curve, even 0.2 mg provides only 7% less inhibition compared to 1 mg. 0.7 mg will more than suffice. I just choose to take 1 mg because I can't be...

    is it pointless to use dutasteride & finasteride together?

    Like Agustin said, it's redundant to take finasteride and dutasteride concomitantly. You're a bit off on the half-lives as well, finasteride's is about 6 hours and dutasteride's is anywhere from 3-5 weeks based on Avodart's package insert data from GSK. So much misinformation in one post...

    Why things take so long?

    This is true. I went from 64 kg when I was 18 to being 74 kg now at 21, with only a modest increase in body fat percentage (~7% to ~9%). You can lift all you want but if you aren't at a 300-500 caloric surplus it will be difficult to gain muscle.

    Did anybody else lose their mind when they started to lose their hair?

    Most definitely. Once it was apparent I was leaving NW1 and heading for NW2 just a few months ago, Androgenetic Alopecia pretty much became a vortex of anxiety for me to be drawn into. However, it was greatly ameliorated by my decision to start treatment with finasteride. Many people are in denial for quite a...

    Does anyone know how saw palmetto work? Nope. Take a look at this chart, all it does is inhibit 0.5% more DHT than a 1 mg dose. Not 'bad for you' at all, simply just not worth it cost-benefit wise. Literally the only difference is a greater decrease...
