    Make sure to up the dosage of your propecia while on cycle. 2mg if you are very prone to MPB!

    I think I read some studies where it could possibly effect your gains. I doubt it would be much at all though!

    monoxidil only works for the vertex of your head (the back part) ....meanwhile finasteride(propecia) may help with the receding hairline, while monoxidil doesn't

    Finasteride wins hands down for both effectiveness and convenience!

    It may subtly affect how you react to the test - the reduction in DHT production could affect muscle hardness & also in turn reduce free test levels due to a change in DHT / SHBG interacions also there may be an increase in test conversion to estro - since you're blocking one of the metabolic pathways.

    na im in pharmacy school....monoxidil and finasteride(propecia) should not be combined.
    not true - 5AR blockers & minoxidil are fine together, possibly even synergistic.

    This combination has worked well for lots of people. If you're going bald you should try something like the BIG 3.

    Propecia
    Minox 2 times daily
    Nizoral shampoo 2% twice/week
