There Won't Be Better (and Affordable) Treatments For The Next 25 Years

BIG 3 will still be THE WAY TO GO in the year 2040. Deal with it. Don't be delusional, relax! Don't wait for miracle cures and wonder treatments! Get on BIG 3 + Dermarolling asap! Take action! Don't dream up fantasies!

Phenelzine (Nardil), Tranylcypromine (Parnate), Amitriptyline ("Elavil") and Clomipramine ("Anafranil") are still the most effective antidepressants & anxiolytics and they have been around for more than 50 years. There hasn't been anything better for the last 60 years, although pharma is putting billions of dollars into the development of newer & better antidepressants.

When they can't come up with better treatments for depression, Parkinson's and Alzheimers, then it seems rather unlikely that they would come up with the HAIR LOSS CURE, don't you think?

Take Parkinson's for example: Levo-Dopa has been around since the late 60s / early 70s. The relatively new COMT inhibitors are used adjunctively with levodopa, but clinical effect sizes are rather low and side effects are high. Dopamine-Agonists are sometimes used as adjunct-treatment in Parkinson's. The new generation Dopamine-agonists are Pramipexole and Ropinirole: both have been approved in 1997. Nothing new since then. And all those treatments are no good treatments at all: they can slow then the degeneration, but they cannot stop it. Sometimes MAO-B inhibitors are applied. The most known is Selegiline: is has been around for decades. Nothing new on the horizon. My father was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2004 at age 43 and passed away in 2018 at age 57. He waited and hoped for the miracle cure or treatment. It never came. He died due to aspiration pneumonia, a common late stage Parkinson's death.

I am not here to antagonize you or to bash you, on the contrary. I been lurking on hairloss forums since the early two-thousands... 2004, 2005... I've seen it all come and go, I've been praying, I've been hoping, I was hyped, then disillusioned, then hyped again. I've become rather indifferent about all that future treatments sh*t...

The only thing that might probably come out in the near future is Breezula / Clascoterone / CB-03-01, but I doubt that it will be more effective than Finasteride or Dutasteride.

The meds we have now are fantastic.... but for most of the population, they're effective only in preventing further loss, not regrowth. It's a weird situation where hair loss is practically cured, but only if you had the wherewithal to hop on early enough. I hopped on dutasteride and minoxidil at nw1 with a family history of baldness. 4 years later my hair hasn't budged. It's why it's important to get on as soon as you notice any hairline recession. So you don't have to experiment with weird ***, expensive drugs.

No, absolutely not. For the most part psychotropic medications have atrocious effect sizes and response rates... first of all antidepressants work only for heavily depressed patients and the effect sizes are rather small. SSRIs are the least efficient antidepressants. Tricyclics, especially Clomipramine and Amirtriptyline, are better with bigger effect sizes, but are hardly used anymore due to anticholinergic side effects and OD risks. MAOIs are great, but aren't used any more because doctors are afraid of them (tyramine reaction, interactions).

The same goes for many other psychotropics like Levodopa, dopamine agonists etc.

There are dozens of depression forums ;=)

They do work, but they often come with variety of very shitty side effects.

There will be better treatments and cure but that will happen after capitalism ends. Afterwards the socialism will come in and the medicine will suddenly advance at very high speed. There aren't better treatments for anything because large pharmaceutical companies aren't interested and want to sell their sh*t. When someone discovers something new about cancer, hair loss, Parkinson... they are accused of being mad, their invention get rejected or even they get killed. When socialism takes over capitalism the large pharmaceutical companies will be owned by the state and now they will care about people and not money and there will be new miracle cure for male pattern baldness, for cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson and everything.

I have already created treatments and I will test them If they work. These are:

- Massaging the surrounding muscles of the galea.

- Diet rich in nutrients.

Cure to baldness is already here: mesotherapies and hair transplants. Both medical treatments work enough to give almost any man the hair he desires.

Now, medicines that cure baldness? I doubt anything better than Finasteride/Dutasteride comes out. in the short-medium term. DHT blockers are the way to go.
