Propecia?

So I went in for a check up today and was curious to ask about my hair and my doctor said that he can prescribe Propecia at 1mg a day. Insurance doesn't cover it and it's 50 bucks a month which doesn't sound bad at all. I might wait another year and a half because my wife and I are trying to have a baby but I just wanted to know your opinions on this? I'm only 29 and I'm barely thinning. I still have the hair on my head as you can see in my avatar and I think I have a photo album on here but it's my insecurity and no one is going to change my mind about it. I just wanted to know.. is there a high risk of gyno and loss of sex drive because I know two people that say they've been on it for years and haven't had either especially being on 1mg.. but let me know what you guys think?

Well yeah that's why when I make the decision to go on it's going to be for life. So the risk of loss of libido and gyno isn't that high then? I'm probably going to wait a year or so to make the decision and have kids first but I just wanted to know if you guys are on it or know people who are taking it.

Try using nioxin shampoo and conditioner and start taking saw palmetto.

I've been on Propecia for 16 years now. When I started I had a balding spot. Within 6 months of use, it was gone and I had a full head if hair. It did affect my erectile stiffness for the first few months but did not affect my libido. That was before the days of Cialis and Viagra. Now with those you should have no issue. If you have insurance and a cool doctor, ask them to prescribe you Proscar. I spit it in 4(it should be 5). It is $10 for 4 months worth on insurance. If you use Propecia, it is about $80 a month for the same thing.

I'm seriously considering starting finasteride for my enlarged prostate... The recommended dosage is 5mg but I'm going to start with 1mg in combination with Cialis. I'm hoping to get more relief than I'm getting with Cialis alone.

I'll ask him about Proscar. So now let's say if I'm on TRT and I'm taking 100mgs of Test Cyp weekly will the Propecia/Finasteride/Proscar effect my gains or not so much? Like will the TRT still work as good?

Excellent question!

Can't see any reason why the effects would even be noticeable as far as trt "gains"
What about on cycle? Finasteride does block the conversion of Test to DHT... I would think it would be minimal... But I'm still doing research obviously or I wouldn't be asking this question... Lol
 
Has absolutely not effect on muscle growth. It's safe up to 7.5mg daily. U do however do not want to block dht completely (just like estrogen)because it does assist in growth so just take at recommended doses.
I've taken it for 20 plus years with no adverse effects. My hair started to thin in my 20s & it brought it right back to normal.
I take generic Proscar 5mg & take 1/2 daily. I also use extra strength Rogaine & it is effective at immediately stopping hair loss. Those are the only 2 products proven to stop loss or start regrowth.

I'm not sure I understand your question here but I have not found that it affects any gains from a cycle. I will say that Finasteride does not work to stop hairless while running DHTs. It does nothing for me while on Mast, Proviron, Primo. I lose my hair on them. Regardless of the Finasteride dose.

Thanks for the information...

Has it helped with your prostate? That's why I am interested in taking it... When I increase my dosages on a blast I can feel my prostate swell up some and I have to go urinate more frequently. Cialis has helped a great deal but I've read that Finasteride and Cialis combo is even better. I've also read that Finasteride can affect libido and ED but I'm thinking that's probably people not on Cialis or AAS...
 
it works minimally on prostate reduction. however, when combined with other meds such as flomax, it does show some synergistic activity.
no issue with libido for me but in rare cases it could occur.

I tried Propecia before for like two weeks, it was a huge mistake. It totally screwed up my libido. I couldn't get hard even with Cials and Viagra and it felt like my dick wasn't even part of my body. It took months on a blast of test and Mast to get back normal. The crazy thing is I know people who have been on Propecia for years with no adverse side effects, I guess it just affects people differently just keep that in mind. Now when I'm blasting I use Ketoconazole shampoo, Azalic acid cream and Lipogaine(minoxidil & Azalic acid) and it seems to work very well.

That's what I'm afraid of... Not sure I'm willing to take the risk.
