What brand of topical finasteride did you use out of interest? People don't seem to realise that finasteride seems to lower free testosterone.
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 T. I think the people that claim they don't get side effects just don't notice them because they are coming slowly over time.

Yep and it backs up why I don't believe finasteride is the ideal drug that some do. Low DHT, lower free test and higher estrogen just isn't good for men's health in my opinion.

People are trying Fluridil at 7.5%
Could 2% not slow lose slightly? What about using fluridil 2% twice a day? Issue with these experimental topicals (.e.g using fluridil at 7.5%) is that they're hard to store and therefore use longer term if you travel about at all/go on holidays etc..keeping it away from any moisture also an issue. At least with the 2% it is already packaged/stored ok.

ya finasteride is a bad drug you are correct it caused me androgen deficency and dry eye syndrome after a month of usage orally same happened to my friend, but dutasteride orally for 5 months now hasnt budged my hormones, I feel even stronger than before and my sex drive and boners are exactly the same as before, people are different my friend.

6 days. Also, the inside of my bottle does not look nearly as clear as mustangs'. Which makes me kind of sceptical since i've only got it 2 weeks ago.

I'm on fluridil since 2 months, i don't see any improvement i think my hair is getting worse, still notice some shedding, maybe fluridil slowed down my aa and it would be worse atm, i don't know, that's why i'll try topical duta, and if it don't work i'll go bald i guess. By the way on the bottle of fluridil they say to keep on it for 3-6 month for see some improvement so I didn't experience the full strengh of fluridil i guess. 0 side ofc. I have 4 month stock left

Lmao this would cost at least 1k the year

7.5% will cost you literally 50 bucks a month.

He's also done steroid cycles based on what I saw recently. Not a good example.

Edit: seeing your other post I guess that was more sarcasm. Not sure why you bother though, sarcasm works well in real life rather than text.

Pretty confident finasteride does the same. From my research, you should stop taking these treatments prior to trying to conceive. Maybe bank some prior to treatment?

Messing with my fertility just seems like a really bad idea. I know some people are ok with the idea of just hopping on and off it whenever, but for me once you're on it you're on it. Reason 74 why i wouldn't want to use finasteride personally. I know some may say it's still possible to conceive on finasteride but id just rather not reduce my fertility at all.

It is. Are you on dutasteride or zix or anything?

no bro my other post about finasteride being bad and duta good is not sarcasm at all, at least in my case. read other guys on forums saying the same.

I'm (hopefully) starting topical dutasteride soon, anyone know what to expect in terms of shedding, time for regrowth, etc.? I don't really mind if the sheddings bad to be honest, I'll probably just buzz/shave it until shed hair grows back, I just wanna know what to expect

people here have reacted differently to topical dutasteride but most have had a shedding phase that lasts for a few months. I personally think the longer you have been balding the longer your shedding will last. 2 here has had regrowth and two has had worsening of hair, most likely due to shedding. if you got nothing to lose and you ran out of products to try and this is your LAST SHOT at saving your hair go for it. I sure did.

They're probably just in the early stages of treatment I'm sure it'll go back to normal, it seems a lot of these treatments need to "make it worse before it can get better". Thanks for the info man, I don't know when I started losing hair but my loss very slow. I think I'm gonna give this a shot once I can get my hands on it cause I'm pretty sure my Androgenetic Alopecia will be more aggressive in the future.

Edit: also think it's worth mentioning my shedding phase on finasteride was very brief (2-3 weeks maybe, though I've stopped using it) but pretty intense. curious how dutasteride will go, I'll keep everyone updated once I start
