    Hair loss mitigation, dutsteride ?s

    The most common response to questions about hair loss goes like this: "...the only way to prevent hair loss 100% is not to take AAS. However, this would not be an appropriate response to the myriad of other questions and decisions surrounding AAS and yet they all have this situation in common. I took this from a post I made in the wrong spot while searching for info about Dutasteride. The search results were all about dutasteride so I posted without finding out where the thread came from and it was in the AR SPA...lol

    Questions:
    -I've read on here about people taking a little dutasteride and a little finasteride, why do this, and how much of each?
    -Also, there is a suggestion that duta takes many months to build in the system in order to be effective, is this true?, how many months?, same with finasteride?
    -other options?

    Thx

    Steroids do not cause hair loss, but if it runs in your family they may make you go bald faster. I saw something on jay curlers Facebook a while ago, other than that I don't know.

    male pattern baldness is a genetic predispostion in males carried from the X chromosome this means passed from the mother who gives the X look at your mothers side of the family if theres balding you will eventually lose your hair aas will only excelerate the fact fact of the matter is if your predisposed to baldness its going to happen just shave your head bitches love a shaved head hahahah

    Yup, I've heard that b4. But it is not all that relevant, just as I stated at the top of my post.
    Come On, someone's gotta know something useful.

    Clinical trial results
    Impotence Decreased libido Ejaculation disorders Breast disorders
    Month 0-6 ( n = 2,167 ) 4.7% 3% 1.4% 0.5%
    Month 7-12 ( n = 1,901 ) 1.4% 0.3% 0.5% 1.1%
    Month 13-18 ( n = 1,725 ) 1% 0.1% 0.4% 0.8%
    Month 19-24 ( n = 1,605 ) 0.8% 0.3% 0.1% 0.6%

    also yes it is slow acting taking time to build up in the system

    also its used as it inhibits the conversion of test to dht this is why they use it as they hope itlll prevent hair loss which is due to trt

    my 2c? its not worth it they can cause sevre hair loss impotence ejaculation problems amongst other issues so weigh it up if u dont mind loosin your hair use the aas if not dont im balding yet dont care shave my head actually suits me its only hair mate

    Right ON
    This is the kind of thing I was looking for. I have seen other things suggesting that dutasteride is not a good idea because of the need to get stable blood levels, which takes a long time.
    I have more questions but I have class right now.
    Thnx

    Does finasteride take as long to build up?
    What's the effective dose?

    if you want to use aas accept the fact if your predisposed to hair loss it can excelerate it those 'miracle' hair products can cause sevre balding anyway why risk making it happen when the aas might not do it yet?
