Anti bald?

First of all I CAN'T get a fin prescription in my country. I hope topical Minoxidil and oral saw palmetto are enough to keep me from going bald. I'm using SP for like 2 weeks and I'm about to buy 180 ml of MIN and use it for 6 months (1 ml per day). But is it even worth it??

Saw palmetto effect on DHT:

>Morganti et al. found significant improvement in hair count with SP-containing lotion versus vehicle at 10 and 50 weeks.
>Prager et al. reported a 60% improvement in hair loss arrest and overall quality for the oral SP group versus placebo.
>Wessagowit et al. observed increased total hair count and terminal hair count with topical SP-containing lotion.
>Narda et al. noted a 23.4% increase in the anagen/telogen ratio and a 3.7% increase in total anagen hair percentage with SP capsules versus placebo.

How good is this combo, anyone tried it?

Also because i'm a paranoidoid i'm trying to find topical saw palmetto to couple with oral SP but the only thing I found is a cream with saw palmetto inside, it's not actually advertised as saw palmetto ONLY, so is that even worth it?

Also before i start using minoxidil, any advice to reduce potential shed?

Also if anyone's wondering I'm using softgel SP with 85% fatty acids. Apparently that's almost the most effective version. (more fatty acids, better results against MPB)

    You don't need a fin prescription. Buy in mass from skinorac. Saw palmetto isn't enough to prevent MPB unless you have severe norwooding.
    Minoxidil is something you'll need to use for life. To make it as effective as possible, use it in conjunction with daily tretinoin and weekly microneedling (don't use topicals on day you microneedle). You will probably shed for the first 1-3 months; it's unavoidable but it's surefire evidence of it working.

      >skinorac
      Just checked, they only have 1 mg+ in oral while the topical solution is just 0.1% combined with minoxidil. i'm scared of taking oral fin from some indian company, and the 0.1% topical i guess is worthless

        got any source that has topical fin?

        I used to make my own topical fin before I switched to oral by just crushing 12 5mg pills and mixing the powder with a bottle of minoxidil to get 0.1% topical fin. If you want one premade, however, minoxidilmax would be fine and cheap. Hims or Happy Head would be better if you want a more reputable seller, though.

        >0.1% topical finasteride isn't much
        that's very potent actually anon topical values are different!!!
        anything from like 0.05% to 0.25% is good

        are you moronic?
        0.1% of 1ml daily is 0.1% of 1000mg
        0.001*1000 = 1mg

    Can someone tell me WHY on the Finasteride paper they gave me on my first pickup of my Fin tablets it LITERALLY says
    >Saw Palmetto could affect Finasteride
    I stopped taking it because of it, but I hear it's actually good to take.

      It's just something to put to avoid liability. In reality, you can stack DHT blockers for more effectiveness.

      honestly it's not that hard to get a script for it in the first place and it's super cheap. Then again I understand not wanting to have to deal with doctors.

    I took saw palmetto and beta sisterol after doing a massive research on hairloss. Neither did anything

    Finasteride worked

    Dont waste your time on all the quack shit the only thing that works to slow down hairloss is DHT blockers.

    I've taken saw palmetto for over 20 years. My hair loss has been extremely slow over that period of time. Did it do anything? Who fricking knows. It still happened, just very slowly. I'm now on fin. Honestly? The mechanism that makes saw palmetto work in theory is the same mechanism that makes fin work. If you can get fin then you should try that. If an effective dose of saw palmetto was going to frick you up then so would fin. Additionally while fin might seem expensive it'll be cheaper than an effective amount of legit saw palmetto from a reliable source. Yes, you can get cheap saw palmetto from ebay. Maybe it is legit. Maybe it is just compressed binders and who knows what else. Fin is almost as effective at 1mg as at 0.25mg. You can quite happily take a lower dose daily or every other day and still get as reliable performance as anything saw palmetto is capable of on paper.

    Why can't you get fin in your country?

      true, yet the issue is what's recommended and what 99% of people do is to hop on 1mg fin a day, while much smaller doses have been shown to have an effect with way lower long-term systemic impact. Saw palmetto is essentially microdosing fin without a prescription
