  1. I am on Propecia, what to avoid?


    Hello everyone!

    I need some advice from some people that actually knows something.
    I have some friends who has clearly misused AAS, and they are sadly my source of knowledge.
    Obviously I don't want to end up like them.
    Totally bald, scarred arms and both of their faces have craters.
    I guess from some hardcore acne?

    I have taken test and deca (injected) in the past, some 4 or 5 years ago.
    Clomid for recovery.

    I was planning on taking something similar.

    BUT.

    I have since then started taking propecia for male pattern baldness.

    Luckily I read somewhere that deca and propecia taken together will be chugging my hairline like no other!

    My friends said it was incorrect. I think they are incorrect.

    What AAS can I take that doesn't react with propecia?

    I bought Superdrol because I thought it wouldn't react with propecia but have later learned that it actually is a DHT like substance? Does it react?
    How is it without propecia, bad on hairline, acne?
    I know some people would be willing to take it from me, so I could tell them if they ask.

    Other things I can get are: M1T, Deca, DBol, Test, Clomid.

    I am sorry if this question is tiresome but I don't own a computer so I can not do so much research. I will have to get one!

    Thanks for baring with me!



  2. It's not that propecia is bad with dec, it's just that it ruins one of the nice qualities of one of it's metabolites. Dbol and test are the worst on the list you have, as far as hairline, but propecia would stack well with them. Superdrol is the cleanest of all, even though it's a DHT derivative, it's not very androgenic. I got no skin or hair problems at all when I used it.

  3. wait Dr.D - are you saying Propecia is effective with Dbol? I thought it was just TEST.

    Isn't Dbol a test derivative (sp?), so in theory Proscar/Propecia should work.

  5. It is probably most effective w/ test, or any androgen capable of generating potent metabolites that bind well to the DHT receptors. I'm pretty sure that Dbol has some high affinity metabolites.

  6. ok thanks guys, thats good to know.

  7. Thanks alot guys!

    What's your insight about M1T and propecia?

    How bad is M1T alone for your hair and skin?

    Thanks!

  8. I've heard that M1T is fairly bad, never made me that oily though, of course I've never used more than 12.5mg. I don't remember it's binding affinity off hand, but it's intrinsic activity would be high I suppose if it does bind. Propecia wouldn't help much, because metabolism is not the issue with M1T.

  9. Propecia doesn't help at all with M1T, doesn't neccessarily hurt though. My experience.

    Like Dr. D said 5alpha blockers work best with test derivatives. Things like Tren, 1-Test, Winny, M1T, and any altered DHT-type of gear will require you to use an topical anti-androgen.

  13. Thank you so much for these answers!
    Many people seems intrested in this, but many are not on propecia (yet )

    Can anybody recommend a good easy to find topical anti-androgen?
    Nizoral + Azelaic acid maybe? (I have heard people use that combo).

  14. Nizoral + Azelaic acid maybe?

    Ok I have probly used everything under the sun to combat hairloss. And Nizoral 1% has only slightly helpe IMO. And Azelaic acid is worthless. I used it a few years ago with 5% minox and propecia and I saw no added benafit over just 5% minox and propecia.

    Don't forget hairloss is not just caused by DHT. It has other contributers as well.

  15. Ok, thank you for the tip. You just saved me money!
    Any topical anti-androgen you could point me towards?
    Thank you again so much!

  16. Everyone will reccommend Spiro 5%, topically it may help where propecia wont and with androgens. Propecia and Minoxidil is supposed to effect the temple area too much - so Spiro may help out here...

    I've used spiro. It's good but it smells like friggin' skunk. Use it and people will run from you, believe me. Instead I use azelaic acid, which is supposed to be as good, if not better (depends on who you ask though), than spiro. You can get Azel Acid at Custom Nutrition. I use it in the morning with a 5% minox solution and Nizoral 2% shampoo. In the evening I use Dr. Lee's Xandrox 15, which is 15% minox and azelaic acid. See www.xandrox.com. So far so good.

  18. hmm the Spiro from Xandrox.com doesn't smell (not to me at least). I may give the azelaic acid a shot on the temples again.
    I use a SAM's club Minoxidil (really greasy), Dr. Lee's Minoxidil was much better - but maybe not worth shelling out 2x the money.

  19. Thanks!

    Is the 2% solution enough or should I look for the 5% gel?

  20. which are we talking about?
    Minoxidil or Spiro - i'd run both at 5%.
    The 5% Spiro from Xandrox.com is a lotion, the 2% is a liquid. I'm not sure what customnutritions is.

    Sorry, I meant Spiro.

    Is there any way to make your own Spiro transdermal?
    I can get 100mg Spironolactone tablets almost for nothing.

    Thanks for that. I'll have to give Dr. Lee's (Xandrox's) spiro another look. I never bothered to try it because the intructions on his website states that the smell is "disagreeable." Don't know about Dr. Lee's brand, but disagreeable doesn't even begin to describe the smell of the other the spiro I've tried. Thanks again.

    Damn There is info on this somewhere. As you know Spironolactone orally is for heart problem.

    Yeah, the 5% lotion is expensive, but I don't think it smells bad at all.

    It doesn't small bad at all. The only time it will is when you combine it with Minox. The problem with Spiro is that it has avery short half life in the scalp/skin. Its only about 4hrs or so. There is another topical anti-androgen, I can't rember the name right now. It's on a thread that BigViruga (sp?) started on hairloss.
