    Yeah, I don't want to have to prepare it all of the time and worry about it not being good quality and keeping it cool in my dorm..If I don't do spiro I am looking into CB because it's supposed to be side effect free and better than fin and dut both

    I wouldn't reccommend this.

    When I tried topical spiro I had worse sides than when I started on propecia.

    The fact that some people get sides from topical spiro shows that some of it IS systemically absorbed. You are then essentially getting into your blood stream a medication that is used by transsexuals to feminize them!

    My advice is come off propecia for a month until things get back to normal. Then consider restarting propecia on a much tinier doses taken intermittently rather than daily. For instance start off taking a few crumbs of it, wait 4 or 5 dys and take the same again. Then up it to taking an eighth of a tablet (by biting a bit off with you teeth) and do this every 3 or 4 days. Eventually progress up to a quarter of a tablet every 3 days. After 4 or 5 months see how you go from there.

    This is what did when I started taking propecia and it allowed me to overcome most of my sides and benefit my hair. I have now been happily taking it for nearly a year and a half and my hair is looking much better

    I herd another guy was biting a tiny bit off he got good results, I gain alot more weight with propecia than proscar as soon as I start propecia I gain weight in. A week, I herd propecia is dissolved in the stomach and proscar us dissolved in the intestine,Any way I think I might just bite the propecia tablet once a week any ideas?

    I am taking anything between approximately 0.2mg to 0.7mg every 2 to 5 days.

    I would say on average I am taking 0.3 or 0.4 of a 1mg tablet every 3 days.

    Sometimes if I take too much I feel a little bit of sides creeping in so I then reduce my dosage and leave a few extra days in between taking it again.

    This probably all sounds a bit crazy to anyone who doesn't get sides, but for someone like me who has experienced very real sides in the past, I think this is a great way to take the drug. It is all about experimenting with extremely low dosages of the drug spaced out numerous days in between, and then getting a feel for what your body can handle.

    Probably better off exploring the PGD2 angle now.

    Topical spiro will give you sides, google some experiences and see for yourself.
