Did another bloodtest after stopping topical dutasteride 0.1%:
Baseline at Lab A (18.05.) 6 weeks after stopping topical finasteride 0.025% eod
DHT: 349 ng/l (250-990 normal)
Total T: 722 ng/dl (270-900 normal)
At Lab B (31.05.) after 2 doses of 1.5 ml once per week of 0.1% dutasteride Trichosol
DHT: 222 ng/l...
No, I don't think I had any sides from it. I'm sure the sides I had came from topical finasteride, since I had the same with oral.
I'm using one ampoule per day, thats 2ml of 2% Fluridil, so 40mg.
What do you mean with "using it at 5%"? Using 2 ampoules per day?
It's only available at 2%. I know there...
I used it together with topical finasteride 0.025% over 3 months, I had good results, don't know if they were from finasteride or Fluridil, propably from finasteride, after that time I developed insomnia, but I'm quiet sure that came from topical finasteride going systemic, since I had it also with oral finasteride
They advise to apply it before going to bed. I'm not sure, but i think that makes sense, because androgen levels are low before bedtime, so Fluridil doesn't have compete with so much T and DHT for the receptors, which should make it easier to block them. When androgen levels rise over night the...
Yes, but this "low" DHT inhibition after just 2 doses was enough to bring my serum DHT below the normal range and it also lowered my T. I'm sure my serum DHT would drop just like with oral dutasteride if I would use it long enough.
I don't even know where I can check my scalp DHT, and I bet it's not...
The insomnia started very mild while I was on oral and topical finasteride, but it went much worse after quitting. It improved over the last 2 months, but I think it went worse again after starting topical dutasteride. But you are right, I think a part of it psychosomatic, the closer bedtime comes, the more...
I did a bloodwork.
After 2 doses once per week of around 1.5ml dutasteride Trichosol 0.1% from Fue Clinic
my DHT dropped from
222 ng/l (36% lower)
Total Testosterone dropped from
525 ng/dl (27% lower)
Both tests were done at approx. the...
It was compounded at a German pharmacy for me with Minoxidil (See my post #1442). There is a pretty unknown longterm study from Egypt that showed that finasteride reduced Free T in all subjects significantly. So much less DHT and free T > severe androgen deficiency. All other studies just checked total...
7 weeks after stopping topical finasteride I did another bloodwork and my Free T is now high normal (although I don't feel like it), after 3 months of topical finasteride it was at the very low end of the range as I mentioned, what probably caused my sides like insomnia or hot flashes at night. My total T is...
That is the label of the bottle, the values are the total amount in 100ml:
I also don't understand why you don't stay at Topical dutasteride if it works well for you without DHT inhibition.
I don't think I will ever touch finasteride again after it caused weeks of horrible insomnia two times.
