    Lightbulb Finasteride (Toremifene Citrate)

    Predipposed to baldness.

    Is Finasteride effective during the cycle of DHT derivatives?

    I know this is not related but, why do you also post your posts in huge, bold text? I'm sure others are wondering the same.

    When examining the effects of Finasteride, we must look at them a little differently when considering its use with anabolic steroids . Many anabolic steroids are already DHT based; steroids like Oxymetholone (Anadrol ), Methenolone (Primobolan ) and Stanozolol (Winstrol ) are DHT derived anabolic steroids. There is nothing for the 5-alpha reductase enzyme to metabolize, and as a result, nothing for a related inhibitor like Finasteride to inhibit. Then we have testosterone derived anabolic steroids, and this is where the effects of Finasteride can prove useful to the anabolic steroid user. However, this will only apply to specific testosterone derived anabolic steroids, specifically Testosterone (all forms), Methyltestosterone (Metandren) and Fluoxymesterone (Halotestin ).

    When high levels of testosterone are present in the body, there is more of the hormone to be metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, and as a result, potentially a larger buildup of DHT. This can promote androgenic effects that can be combated by the effects of Finasteride. This can protect against hair loss and prostate enlargement, but with hair loss it’s only a benefit for those predisposed to male pattern baldness. If you are not predisposed, hair loss is impossible. If you are predisposed, you’re going to lose your hair at some point no matter what you do, but the high levels of DHT may speed up the process. The use of Finasteride in this capacity can also help with acne that sometimes occurs due to a strong androgenic atmosphere. However, once again we’re only talking about those who are genetically sensitive. If you are not generally sensitive to acne it is unlikely any acne will occur to begin with.

    The effects of Finasteride can help reduce the relative androgenicity of the anabolic steroidal hormones mentioned above, Testosterone, Methyltestosterone and Fluoxymesterone. However, Finasteride will not completely reduce the hormone’s androgenicity, but it will have a significant effect. If you are very sensitive to androgenic side effects, you may want to consider avoiding strong androgenic steroids. As a male, you will still need exogenous testosterone if you’re going to supplement with anabolic steroids, but you’ll want to keep it at a minimal level. For such individuals, you will find steroids like Anavar , Equipoise and Deca Durabolin to be far friendly regarding androgenic side effects.

    It should also be noted that Finasteride can actually enhance the androgenicity of certain steroids, Nandrolone and any Nandrolone derivative such as Trenbolone being primary. Finasteride and all 5-alpha reductase inhibitors should be avoided when using such steroids. It is also important to remember that the use of Finasteride will have no effect on DHT derived anabolic steroids; again, there is nothing for the enzyme to metabolize and therefore nothing to inhibit. If specific DHT steroids are a problem for you due to the androgenic effects or steroids like Trenbolone, which is highly androgenic, you may want to avoid such steroids

    Take a look at Finasteride profile. Here is just a summary !!!
