Im really into bodybuilding and currently take finasteride 1 mg. Never had any problems with gains due to the finasteride. My question is do you guys personally think creatine is worth the risk for hair loss? There has never really been any proven scientific evidence, except for that one small rugby study, and anecdotal evidence from users. Personally, I really like the way creatine fills out your muscles due to the water retention within the muscle itself. I believe over time that the 1-2 extra reps you get from creatine can make a difference in the long run to your physique. Im just so conflicted on whether its worth it or not.

So, any other fitness fanatics on this thread, do you think creatine causes an acceleration of hair loss? Is it worth the possible risk based on the lack of evidence? Is this negligible when taking finasteride? Thanks guys.

I pussied out 5 months ago when i bought creatine.Im also wondering if I should give it a go.Its dumb to look at the comments of people who say that their hair started shedding after 6 or more months or even years of using creatine.Im scared because some people report shedding after few doses.If anyone is using creatine I would like to hear if it is causing any trouble in terms of shedding.

Creatine can not cause any harm. Just drink more water before you go sleep

I think that creatine is really good, and it will not harm you surely. I also take some good CBD products from GoldBee brand. I think they help me stay energized and realx better when needed. Thei CBD gummies are the best, and I absolutely love those. CBD works really better than any vitamins or other supplements for me. Have you ever tried those? I am sure that you will like them

Creatine don't cause hair loss. There is just one bad study show that increase DHT, there not any single study after all this years proving this. Was just stupid study that didn't compare baseline before they started with lifting weight .
I am 42 , with hair loss since 18 and training since I was 14. tacking finasteride since 20 years or so, never so any difference when I take it about hair , even know that I am not taking orally finasteride or dutasteride.

Obviously could have been coincidental and not causation, but my hair loss worsened drastically when I first used creatine.

Saying coincidentally because there were so many other factors. Anthrax shot, deployed to a very active war zone, extreme stress, poor sleep, non existent hygiene, ate unidentifiable garbage more often than not, etc.
