Top 1: Finasteride What is Finasteride used for? Finasteride is used to shrink an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) in adult men. It may be used alone or taken in combination with other medications to reduce symptoms of BPH and may also reduce the need for surgery. Finasteride may improve symptoms of BPH and provide benefits such as decreased urge to urinate, better urine flow with less straining, less of a feeling that the bladder is not completely emptied, and decreased nighttime urination. This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone (DHT) that causes growth of the prostate.
What are the dosages of Finasteride? For the purpose of combating hair loss, standard Finasteride doses will be 1mg per day with Finasteride doses reaching 5mg per day in order to combat prostate enlargement. For the purpose of combating the androgenic side effects of specific anabolic steroid use, Finasteride doses will be 1mg per day during steroid use. While Finasteride use can be beneficial during anabolic steroid use, keep in mind it only works for the steroids discussed above. Further, the use of Finasteride along with Testosterone, Methyltestosterone or Fluoxymesterone can severely diminish the results and effectiveness of such steroids. This will lead the individual to only use the inhibitor when absolutely necessary; if not, there really is no point in his anabolic steroid use. It should also be noted, while Finasteride will have no affect on DHT compounds and can increase the androgenicity of Nandrolone and Trenbolone, it will have a very moderate to no androgenic reducing effect on Boldenone (Equipoise) and Methandrostenolone (Dianabol).
Top 2: Dutasteride What is dutasteride? Dutasteride is a prescription drug. It’s available as an oral capsule. This drug may be used as part of a combination therapy. That means you need to take it with other drugs.
1.Dutasteride is used to treat enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]) in men with an enlarged prostate. It helps decrease your risk of a complete blockage of urine flow (acute urinary retention).
2.This drug can be as an alternative to surgery for men who are uncomfortable with undergoing surgery.
3.Dutasteride is used by men only.
4.Dutasteride has been shown to affect sperm. It can lower sperm count, semen volume, and sperm movement. However, it isn’t known if dutasteride actually affects fertility.
How does Dutasteride work? Dutasteride belongs to a class of drugs called 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors. A class of drugs refers to medications that work similarly. They’re often used to treat similar conditions. There is a hormone in your blood called dihydrotestoterone (DHT), which causes your prostate to grow. Drugs like dutasteride prevent the formation of DHT in your body, causing an enlarged prostate to shrink.
Top 3: minoxidil What is Minoxidil? Minoxidil is a vasodilator medication known for its ability to slow or stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth. It is available over the counter for treatment of androgenic alopecia, among other baldness treatments, but measurable changes disappear within months after discontinuation of treatment. Its effectiveness has largely been demonstrated in younger men (18 to 41 years of age), the younger the better, and in those with balding in the central (vertex) portion of the scalp. Minoxidil is a potassium channel agonist. It contains the chemical structure of nitric oxide), a blood vessel dilator, and may be a nitric oxide agonist. This appears to explain its vasodilatory effects, but may also be linked to minoxidil’s ability to stimulate hair growth and treat hair loss. Since minoxidil is a nitric oxide-related compound, it was suspected to act via activation of guanylate cyclase, an enzyme involved in vasodilation.
What are the usages of minoxidil Minoxidil solution and foam are used to help hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is not used for baldness at the front of the scalp or receding hairline in men. The foam and 2 percent minoxidil solution is also used to help hair growth in women with thinning hair. Minoxidil belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators. It is not known how minoxidil causes hair growth. This medication is not used for sudden/patchy hair loss, unexplained hair loss (e.g., no family history of hair loss), or hair loss after giving birth.
