View Full Version : Finasteride and Creatine.

I'm currently on Finasteride...been so for about 4 months. I understand there is some evidence that demonstrated creatine increases DHT. My question is if I take creatine for my workouts, would the Finasteride be able to offset this increase so that it won't result in increased shedding?

I understand there's no definitive answer. I'm wondering if anyone has any personal experience with this combo?

i've taken creatine and finasteride for the past 12 months and so far

- all Pull tests for shedding have been negative (method: pull 60 hairs in area and if 6 or more hairs come out then shedding is positive)

- i've had some (not much) regrowth/ thickening of hair

if doing weights and taking creatine does exacerbate MPB then its effects are not enough to warrant discontinuing them for me.

just do Pull Tests regularly and take a record of any lifestyle changes. that should give you an idea if something (like creatine) does worsen MPB.
