View Full Version : Taking Testosterone Replacement Therapy Along with Propecia?

What would happen if I did that? I think I have low testosterone so I am getting some tests done soon.

If my suspicions are confirmed will the TRT affect my hair? I also have an appointment with my dermatologist in September and will probably get him to prescribe me propecia.

So pretty much what I am asking is will TRT hamper my results from propecia?

If you have low testosterone the doctor is going to treat you to get back to normal levels. So I don't think that would be a problem. Propecia does raise your testosterone levels (from the testosterone not converted to dht). Talk to your doctor about it.

Propecia may raise testosterone levels, but not all of that testosterone stays free, some of it converts to estrogen, so propecia also raises your estrogen levels. That is why you get man boobs and a limp dick by taking propecia, besides facial bloating.
