Yes, it is possible that Avodart (dutasteride) is better than Propecia (finasteride) for regrowing hair. Avodart blocks both types of DHT receptors, while Propecia blocks the most common type. Propecia (or Proscar which is also finasteride, but in 5mg tablets instead of 1mg) is often less expensive and easier to get.

Now, one word of warning. Pregnant women or women likely to become pregnant anytime soon should avoid coming into contact with broken tablets of either medication. It is common practice for men taking Propecia to get their doctor to give them the stronger version, Proscar, instead, and then to divide them into 4 or more pieces. Some will grind them up and mix them with filler to make even more in capsule form since even 1mg per day is much more than necessary. So if you cut or reformulate them in any way, you need to make sure to keep women of child-bearing age away unless they are taking Birth Control pills.

Is Propecia or Rogaine better?

AnswerAny medicine which is developed for use in America has to go through laboratory tests and clinical trials; after which it has to be approved by the Food and Drug Association (FDA) before it can be available to the public.In America, the FDA has approved only two drugs, namely finasteride (Propecia) and minoxidil (Rogaine) for use in hair loss. Men can use both the drugs but women can only use Rogaine and not Propecia. If you are not American, you should find out under which brand name these drugs are available locally. Propecia is available as a pill and has to be taken once a day with or without food. Propecia works by decreasing the enzyme activity that results in the formation of a chemical called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is primarily responsible for male and female pattern baldness. By blocking the conversion of hormones into DHT it helps to maintain the existing hair as well as in assisting re-growth of thinning hair follicles. In male pattern baldness, during each cycle of hair growth, the hair becomes thinner and finer till it stops growing altogether. Propecia helps by making these thin strands thicker.Rogaine is a solution of which ten drops need to be applied on the scalp twice a day. Although the exact action of Rogaine is unclear, researchers believe that it primarily prevents hair from thinning but in some patients can also increase the protein blocks which in turn make the hair follicles sprout new hair. When Rogaine is applied where there are hair follicles, it works as a hypertrichotic agent that can actually promote hair growth.For either of these drugs to work they need to be taken for long periods. Propecia has to be taken for at least 6-8 months after which if you see any difference in hair loss, you will naturally want to continue it. Rogaine has to be taken indefinitely as we keep getting new hair follicles which need to continually be treated with the drug.For women there is no question of which is better as Propecia is not approved for their use.For men, studies and clinical trials seem to suggest that Propecia is a better alternative than Rogaine. Rogaine has proved to be more useful in holding on to existing hair whereas Propecia does help in also promoting new hair growth. Even though this may be the case, each medicine has its own benefits and you may benefit more from one than the other. So really it boils down to being a personal choice and what works best for you.ANSWERSPropecia and Rogaine both are effective medicine for hair loss treatment. Both the medicine are FDA approved for hair loss treatment. These two medicines have shown great results in their clinical research and practical use for the treatment of hair loss. Rogaine has an ingredient present in it called Minoxidil. Minoxidil was basically used for high blood pressure but it also showed great results for balding problem.h Doctor also suggest Minoxidil as balding solution.ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE TO PROPECIA AND ROGAINE.Propecia has sexual side effects associated to it such as less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, and a decrease in the amount of semen. More over, this may not be used by women.Rogaine is the marketing name for Minoxidil. Minoxidil does not contain ingredients which block DHT from getting into your hair follicles.It is simply designed to dilate the blood vessels in the hair follicles that are growing smaller, with the idea that more nutrients might be able to get to those hair follicles to help keep them alive, but as DHT still seeps in, the hair thinning and hair loss process still continues. Minoxidil is also not effective for Frontal Baldness or Receding hair line.Another alternative is a product called Provillus. This is a supplement built to block the DHT(Dihydrotestoterone) in the body. Provillus contains compound ingredients such as, biotin, gotu kola, magnesium stearatern Muria Puania, pumpkin extract, Saw Palmetto, silicon dioxide, vitamin B6, and zinc. These compound ingredients help prevent thinning hair follicles form becoming thinner-leading to baldness. The nourishing blend of nutrients in Provillus helps the hair become thick. It is not only a cure for Hair loss but also a natural supplement which aids overall health. Additionally it is safe to use for both men and women.


How long does propecia take to work?

It begins to work immediately, but as growth of hair is a very slow process you wont start to notice anything until about 3 months of taking the drug, it should begin to slow down hair loss, after around 6 months you may begin to notice new hair growth although this is not for everyone. If by 12 months you see no benefit, then Propecia is not for you.

Should you take estrogen blocker if I'm taking DHEA and Tribulus?

With Tribulus Terrestris an estrogen blocker is not necessary. With DHEA, it would be highly recommended. One prescription drug that will serve as an estrogen blocker is Propecia. Propecia is used to prevent and reverse hair loss in men and is quite effective. It is therefore a prescription which is easier to acquire (what doctor would turn down a male patient wanting to ensure that he keeps his hair) and is effective for both purposes (keeping hair and blocking additional testosterone from aromatizing into estrogen and related compounds). But then, I'm not an expert, just a guy who works out and tries to keep up with the growing body of knowledge out there.
