View Full Version : RU or OC?

so just when I was ready to take the plunge and try RU as my DHT inhibitor (got sides on fin) I hear all this news and excitement coming out about OC and Setipripant

I've heard the risks of RU include possible sides, long-term androgen sensitivty, lack long-term efficacy, systemic health concerns, generally unhealthy chemical for the body

while OC could possibly be a no sides maintenance chemical with similar effectiveness to Fin?

sounds like I should be trying OC before RU? the problem is I already have RU that I was just about to start using before hearing about OC

I'm in the same boat as you. My RU's actually still sitting at the bottom of the freezer because I just can't bring myself to even try it after the scare I've had with Fin.
I don't know, I've decided to wait just a little while longer to see whether we find an affordable option for either OC or seti.

does it make sense to use both RU and OC?

Im kind of hoping follicept or some other treatment will show up in a year or two and I can avoid the whole propecia era altogether but maybe im not being realistic. Not a huge fan of taking hormone drugs personally so I would rather never touch the stuff. Im also not convinced RU never goes systemic though so Im not sure what that leaves left.
