    Crushing Finastride

    After reading lots of horror stories on finasteride's possible sides, I found out some dudes have had success crushing the finasteride pills and adding them to their topical solution. Considering doing this. Anyone have any experience using it tis way?

    We thinking of the same thing? Finasteride (propecia) isn't a steroid ....

    It will probably work to an extent, but it won't be nearly as cost-effective as taking it orally.
    Also, make sure to keep the crushed powder, shampoo, and residue away from any woman, as the stuff is known to cause birth defects in pregnant women.

    There are a few problems with that.

    One are they using DMSO? Its not an HCL base added to enable obsorbtion through the skin. So if you mix it some solution and rub it in it just is not going to rub in.

    when one administers a drug there is clearance into the blood stream and uptaking of the given drug.

    Of the 1mg pill say you decided for some reason to rub it in with dmso and got 70% obsorbtion rate. If you orally took it you would get 90S% obsorbtion.

    All that aside the way to apply the drug will not affect the sides.

    1mg obsorbed orally will have the same results as one 1mg IV/IM...
