    Propecia

    I've read where people add propecia to their cycle, I assume that's to block DHT.
    Dose that actually work or is it just wishful thinking?

    Finasteride supposedly blocks the binding of DHT to the hair folical(which is apparantly behind MPB). Some ppl say it works, others don't.

    it works, but you cant just take it for the duration of the cycle. You should be prepared to take it for the long haul(if you are prone to mpb). It does have side effects. It basically makes you less sensitive down there, in general. It also should be clear that finasteride wont regrow hair, it will just help you keep what you have.

    finasteride is very effective blocking DTH 1.25mg per
    every 500mg of test u do however,
    it will eventually attack ur libido system..........

    Actually, propecia does grow back hair. Some people maybe see little if any, but others report good regrowth. Tt just depends on the person. Avodart is a much stronger anti-dht drug and IMO works much better then propecia. BTW, I grew TONS of hair back using Avodart. Looking at my hair you would never know it was falling out at one point in my life. I also regrew hair at my hair line, which is the hardest place to regrow hair they say.

    I've used Propecia for years, works really well. I have been on avodart for about 6 months now, also works really well. I never had any side effects from either. Also my insurance covers it.

    Unless you have a crooked doctor who would prescribe proscar for the intended purpose, i dont believe insurance will cover propecia or avodart.

    And CarbonCopy, i would like to see any research you have showing that finasteride or dutasteride grows any hair back. That is great that you got yours back, just wondering about research.... From my understanding, minoxidil is the only compound proven to regrow hair.

    Vette - there are phase 2 fda trials which are small clinical trials that showed hair regrowth. One of their main pictures that they displayed showed very good vertex fill in. I will look for the study. I agree with CC. Used 1.25 mg proscar for 5 years and kept what I had. Avodart for 13 months and hair is noticably thicker all over. I did not have any of my hair line grow back, it stayed in the same place but hair got thicker from the line back.

    Also I am not condoning this but, avodart has only been approved for BPH. The drug companies have not yet flagged it as having a cosmetic use. If you get a doc to perscribe it to you for Baldness prevention you should have no problem just paying your insurance copay. I even had an online doc mark the perscription as "for male pattern baldness". The pharmacist must have not read that part but he did ask me why I was taking something for BPH when I was only 32 at the time. I told him it was an "off label perscription for Male Pattern Baldness". He said, "Hmm it works like propecia, I can see that". Magically I got it for my copay (30-.5mg gelcaps)when it is normally $72 at sams club which is one of the cheaper places.

    Thanks scottp999 for finding those studies! I hope this isn't breaking any rules, and since this site gives legit scripts I believe this is ok to post -

    http://www.medicalwellnesscenter.com/

    They can be trusted and 100% legal/legit if you are looking for avodart. I have ordered my script from them 3 times and never had any problems. Also, here is more info on Avodart vs Propecia and hair counts -

    http://www.hairlosstalk.com/newslett...article&sid=96

    "Many expect that numbers will be even higher as the study continues to 12 months, 2 years etc. It's possible that over 50% of men will be getting moderate to dense regrowth on Dutasteride, compared to the less than 25% of men who experience these results with Finasteride"

    Peace,

    CC

    I would also say medicalwellnesscenter is top notch. They do an online consultation and the doctor writes you a script that can either be mailed to you to take into a local pharmacy or called in to the pharmacy of your choice for a small extra fee. Great service.

    I talked to a freind of mines father who is a specialist in hair transplants about propecia... He told me it is the best thing right now on the market, besides an actual hair transplant, but the only problem with it is like u said it has to be takin for the long haul... IF u stop takin it u will go right back to were u were hair loss wise...
