Especially for those of us who play with fire. Fire = superdrol
No, it is said to be one of the safest for us shedders - I just sourced superdrol, because its really the only thing I use anymore. I can get away with short cycles and stil feel results. It's said to be the least androgenic or one one of the least, so I stick with it. H-drol is not as low, but still in the neighborhood. Still with any AAs/Ph you gotta expect some damage to the hair if you're prone.
I don't shed on SD, but I shed a little on clomid/torem during PCT.
Dbol - Dzine are pretty bad. I tried havoc and pstanz once and that was brutal on my hairline
Anyone using research Chem fina? Used ur awhile back but my source is give and not sure if interest other sites fina. Debating ifbj should hop on rogaine, just afraid it'll shed quicker and won't grow back or thicken it
Personally, I wouldn't mess with research chem fina for something that is so important and will be used for the rest of your life. Generic Proscar 5mg is ridiculously cheap at Target and Walmart Pharmacy. Just cut the pill in 1/4's and you'll be fine. I previously mentioned something on this thread about not getting an even dose when doing this, butthe even dose doesn't matter when it comes to fina. As long as you are only cutting one pill at a time, then taking each quarter every day, you'll be fine. Get your Rogaine foam from Costco. Their Kirkland brand is far cheaper than the name brand. If you don't have a Costco around you'll have to do some research. Once you start you can't stop. Sounds like a pain, but I've been doing it for almost 5 years now and it's really not that bad. But you have to commit.
But do we need prescription to get generic fina?
Yes. But you will only have to see the doc once. I found an urgent care clinic that would see me for $50 and prescribe it for me. Then the prescription itself costs between $4-$12 for a 4 month supply (30 pills divided into quarters) but only if you go to a cheap pharmacy. So once you pay the $50 or whatever it is to see the doc, you're set for life and can get the pills for really cheap. Call around to doctors offices and urgent care clinics and tell them what you want. Make sure they know that this is a lifetime thing and that you don't want to have to see the doc more than once (they should know this, but you better say it to be sure - if they don't agree or understand this, move on to another clinic).
Have not read the whole thread but does Dutasteride or Finasteride prevents increases in strength and lbm when using a Superdrol or Ultradrol or any other DHT derivate?
I can only speak for Fina. No. It's actually a tremendously mild compound at 1mg. If you took a larger dose, maybe.
Take into account that DHT is an anti-estrogen and blocking it while your body has supraphysiological levels of testosterone (depending on what type of gear you are taking) might lead to gynecomastia, so it's advisable to take an AI like Arimidex or preferably Aromasin while on-cycle if you are taking a 5AR blocker like fina. Personally, I'm not experienced and educated enough to know exactly when you might need to do this and when you don't. I know for certain if you are pinning test, and talking fina, you should always take an AI because of this reason. I don't know if one is needed with SD or UD alone + fina, maybe not. (?)
Have used 0.5mg/ed Duta almost a year now and in that time I've done a couple of cycles,Alpha Mass/LMG,H-drol/Tren,
never had problems with gyno.
If I want to be sure that a DHT blocker not prevents gains and want to do a break during cycle,
when should I stop taking Duta then?
Half life of Duta is about 5 weeks I think.
I also use Minox and Nizoral.
I don't know anything about Duta. Maybe someone else could answer that. I only know that you are safe with a low dose of fina. Tons of guys do it and I have never heard of any problems. The only "problems" you hear about are from guys who haven't tried it who speculate based on misinformation and/or misunderstanding.
Both finasteride and dutasteride are 5AR blockers, meaning they reduce the amount of testosterone that gets 5 alpha reduced to DHT. They "block" DHT from forming, but they have no effect on DHT itself. They will have zero effect on a compound that is already based on DHT.
Hey Please I need advice to stop my hair loss after a test p cycle
I have been on 4 month test p 100mg eod, HGH and peptides. When I began my cycle I increased my finasterid dose to 1.25 every 12 hours (evening & morning)
My hair loss program is
finasterid 1.25mg twice a day
OMG laser therapy 3 times week
Rogain foam (minoxidil) twice a day and 1 hour later spironolactone cream on the thinning area
Regenepure shampo & N2 shampoo
Zink, omega3 and B5 vitamin...
I had some shedding during my cycle and I can see my crown now when it's exposing to the light.
I'm currently on my second week PCT on clomid, 100mg first day and 50mg ev for 30 days, MGF and IGF-lr3 and still taking 1.25mg finasterid twice a day... The problem is that I'm still shedding but maybe not that much like I was on the cycle... What do you guys suggest to stop the shedding?? Should I decrease the finasterid dose while I'm on PCT?? I also have some Nettle Root Extract which I might add when I decrease the finasterid dose....
All advice are appreciated
so i just ordered kirkland 5% mino, im thinkin of doin the fina again but still undecided so help me with a new shampoo. should i just go n2? need somethin to thicken the hair, nioxin didnt do much for me along with aveda's products
regenepure vs N2, which is better
It sounds like you're doing everything that can be done. Someone might suggest some kind of unproven herbal remedy, but just keep taking your finasteride and minoxidil. There will be NO added benefit to increasing your fin dose above 1mg per day (1.25 is fine, since you're splitting Proscar tabs). You might want to consider using Nizoral shampoo. The active ingredient is an anti androgen and there is one study showing that it was effective for hair loss. You need a script to get the 2% but you can get 1% at any drug store. Just be sure to leave it on your scalp for 5 minutes.
You might just be going through a shed, which may or may not be related to your steroid usage. Sometimes we get hit with what's called a telogen effluvium and there's really nothing that you can do about it. Keep in mind that just because your hair is falling out does NOT mean it won't grow back. Most of it will grow back, just gradually thinner and weaker while your MPB progresses. If I were you, I wouldn't run any more test cycles if you want to keep your hair. You can run hair safe compounds and just pin test at TRT levels. Yeah, you won't get the dramatic gains of test, but you'll have it as a literal base to avoid lethargy and the other side effects from being shut down. It just depends on which is more important to you -- and it sounds like you're pretty invested in keeping your hair.
