Fair play to you for going all out. Got to respect that. Wishing you the best of luck, pal.
Hardly hijacking? Lol the last time op posted was page 5, meaning you and others have posted 8 pages of stuff having nothing to do with his "tell your story thread"
The experiences they are sharing are very helpful. But if they are violating some forum's rule or bothering the members who want to read only about the OP's story, maybe it would be a good idea to share experiences in "Why Doesnt Oral Spironolactone Get Mentioned As Muh Asother Anti-androgens?" or any other thread with a general subject but related to the regimen you're on.
Admin do f*** all on the forum, good luck complaining.
I was not complaining just suggesting. I dont mind at all offtopic discussions. I think it enriches the topic.
Doesn't it bother you to stay on spironolactone for the life to keep the hairs ? I'm already on dutasteride but afraid to go on spironolactone route seems like too much.
While you were growing your hair back over 5 years did you notice periods where it looked thinner, then got back on track?
Or was it a straight line up progression.
When I started spironolactone it was pretty much straight line up progression. Didn’t take too long either.
Have you had your hormone levels tested including estrogen after being on these drugs so long?
Fantastic result! Is any from your family bald? Mom or dads side?
About upregulation - its called tachyphylaxis .
Yes. I have gotten testosterone tests done. A brief overview of the results are originally a significant drop in testosterone then after a while my testosterone levels went back up to the normal range how is was before I had started. However the bizarre thing is I still have my hair. I would have thought my hair would’ve started to fall out again when my testosterone went back up to post levels but it isn’t the case.
it makes sense, regardless of levels spironolactone still blocks androgen receptors
Awesome, was it free/total and direct testosterone? I guess the one the matters most is direct (bioavailable) testosterone
It's my understanding that spironolactone won't impair testosterone synthesis like cpa or e2.
Interesting. Thank you for sharing. I will look into finasteride 1mg+oral spironolactone first before taking on dutasteride+oral spironolactone.
"I managed to get a prescription for oral spironolactone starting out at a low dose for a couple of days to get my body used to the medication and then increased it to about 100mg a day."
When you say "low dose", what dose was that?
Thanks so much for sharing your story. You could of just pretend you never had hairloss, but instead shared your experience here. You now have a silky smooth hairline, your dick works, and you lift weights, you killed male pattern baldness! Thanks again! I keep coming back to look at your hairline to keep me positive and to keep me on my routine.
Guys I'm taking finasteride1mg ED for almost 3 months
I saw some improvement in density initially but now after 3 months I'm shedding like crazy and my hairline has thinned out a lot
Is it the regular finasteride shed or something else
Has anyone faced shedding after 3 months of finasteride??
Results like these just confirm big pharmaceutical companies have the cure but can't release it due to scumbag companies like Pfizer etc who pay governments vast sums of money to keep peddling their Propecia and Minoxidil filth.
