View Full Version : Can you use deca with RU58841 safely?

So basically, my question arises due to the huge concern around people who have noticed massive shed from using finasteride as a 5AR inhibitor while on deca during their cycle. Although there is no real medical proof, there are countless anectodal cases noted on boards all over, enough for me to heed extreme caution when it comes to deca or NPP. A very educated friend of mine did a writeup on this too:

"When they are used concurrently, an interesting scenario unfolds; Finasteride is reduced via the 5AR enzyme to a metabolite, which is not as androgenic as DHT. In addition, the metabolite of Deca-Durabolin is less androgenic than the parent compound, which means that if your Finasteride is pre-occupied with the metabolite, Deca-Durabolin is more able to wreak havoc on the hairline.

So in short, the potential of Nandrolone for hair loss is much more than the less androgenic metabolite (DHN- dihydronandrolone), so itís a safe bet to stay away from it completely.

I have experienced this personally, don't pair the two if you care about your hair."

I am a competetive bodybuilder and usually nandrolone is a staple in my offseason, however, I have just started noticing diffuse thinning on my scalp after 4+ years of AAS use, hence me inquiring about this. Basically, as I don't want to systemically reduce my dht as it is counter productive to my bodybuilding goals, I will be using regenepure, minox, and RU instead of Fin or Dut.

Basically, I am wondering if you guys know if RU58841 would cause the same adverse effect that finasteride does on deca or npp, or if that wouldn't occur because RU doesn't effect your dht systemically, but rather, isolated to the scalp. In short, my question is as the title reads, is it safe to use npp or deca with RU or will it cause the same issue fin does with it?
