View Full Version : Yet another topical fin

08-03-2015, 09:32 AM
I'm aware that topical fin has been tried in the past and that fin is not very cutting Edge, but after seeing other forum members proposing topical solutions for fin in order to reduce size I did a bit of research and came across a dermatologist that prescribe topical fin and even found a compound pharmacy that can prepare a 1% gel. (attached a picture).

I used fin for years with great results but after turning 30 sides finally got me so I decides to stop with the natural consequences that came with it (at least one more NW in 2 years).

So I will give this a try hopping a lower percentage will go systemic and sides wonít appear.

Initially Iím planning to apply the get twice a week and depending of the outcome will increase to 3 times a week.

I will take pictures but at this point Iím not worried about fin efficacy (we all know the answer of that) but mainly sides

Topical Finesteride will cause less side effects I been through hell with FIN and 5 years later I'm fine still using the drug!

The half life is 72 hours so applying topical should be ok every 3rd day as that's what I did and still manage to obtain my hair whilst I had the side effects.

Supplement with horny goat weed and zinc to help counter the sides and also mind control :).

Wouldn't mind getting my hands on this. Easier to obtain than through H&W?

It was much easier but you need a prescription from a dermatologist.

It was around 90$ for a one month supply which should last for two or more since I'm not planning to use it every day plus 8$ for shipment.

In the picture there is a contact information of the pharmacy, I believe you can call and send them a prescription from your doctor

That is expensive! See my thread topical finesteride alongside additional additives is way cheaper.

I use:

15% minoxidol
0.1% finesteride
5% azelaic acid
0.25% progesterone
0.025% tretinoin
0.1% Hydocortisone

The above is formulated by a compound pharmacy $89,, any pharmacy can formulate topical finesteride even cheaper alone.
