    Lightbulb Finasteride Oral x Finasteride Topical

    Hello, all!

    I was wondering what advantages does finasteride in topical presentation have compared to finasteride oral, and vice-versa. Are both proven to cause the same kinds of side effects? What are they? Are the probabilities that these side effects might happen the same for both products?

    I've been looking for this information but I have not seen a place that has organized this yet... Also, if you could point me to some reliable sources, I'd appreciate it as well!

    Thanks!

    I used oral fin for 3 years and 4 months: never stop my hairloss, endure hard site effects of depression and not stop my bald progression ( nw6 diffuse), i decided start topical fin at 0,5%, 0,25% and stop my hairloss and give me hairgrow. Topical finasteride inhibits more dht in the scalp that oral use. The issue we are discussing here is a real need to inhibit serum dht for MPB. The staff in Brazil have also reported great results with only topical dutasteride. Including Dr peruzzo reported that their patients achieved better results using topical than dutasteride orally, and with far fewer side effects.

    The most cost-efficient way - you can just crush propecia pills and mix them into liquid minox

    Could you get a little more specific with something like that? Do they dissolve in liquid minoxidil? What's the proper dilution?
