    finasteride is the generic name for propecia, you need a prescription for it depending on where you live
    minoxidil i believe is prescription

    prescription nizoral you can order off of the net, or you can buy the 2% at your local pharmacy

    I think the 2% nizoral is the prescribed type and the 1% is the otc. I also heard the 1% does not do very much if anything

    My Mach III Turbo works great for me! If a bald head looks like a penis to you, maybe you have more issues than just your hairloss! j/k bro

    just shave it... if ur pretty big then it shouldn't look bad. tiny guys look like kemo patients. If you're black then it will prolly look good. for some reason, black guys look a lot better bald than white guys - look at Terry Tate (I love that guy, lol)

    Avodart stops @80% of all DHT (both Alpha's) Finasteride only about 70% (one Alpha).

    PM me and I'll show you how to get a Rx if your Doc won't.

    Do you shampoo with Nizoral daily? How long do you leave it in before rinsing?

    I heard that taking propecia while on Deca makes the hair loss worse. Is this true?

    I try to use Nizoral about 6 days a week, taking only one day off. The only negative side effect I get from the daily Nizoral regime is dry scalp. I try to keep the Nizoral on for about 10 minutes before rinsing.

    The big hairloss 3 are proscar/propecia 1-1.25mg daily, minoxidil 5% twice per day, and nizoral 1 or 2% 3-4 times per week. That combination is really the best thing going. If it doesn't stop and reverse hairloss for you then you could try replacing proscar/propecia with avodart and using a 15% minoxidil solution overnight but give the first combo a good year before you judge the results.

    Doofy, where have you been, when did you start posting again?

    Propecia works for me -- any doctor will give you a prescription for it and some research companies sell a liquid finasteride.

    Minoxidil (Rogaine) is available OTC in Canada. I remember seeing it in Shoppers Drug Mart for like $45.

    Just to add. I think looking at my results now I would say that a DHT blocker like proscar/propecia or avodart really just maintains what you have for most people, with avodart doing a small job of regrowth. I really saw a huge benefit adding a growth stimulator (minoxidil) with a dht inhibitor. I use nizoral 1% because I think it can't harm anything and could help slightly. There is a big difference in doing just one or the other and using them in combination. Trust me. Minoxidil can be a pain, if you have irritation from store bought go to www.minoxidil.com, he has less PG in the product, it shouldn't cause irritation and it dries faster.
