Product Info

Recommended Posts

As said in previous posts, I've been on Finasteride for 5 years now and have been relatively happy with it's results.

 

I've been reading various posts on a number of HL forums and have noted success stories with other products other than Finasteride. This intrigued me, as a number of products of which I didn't even know existed. What is minox foam? Where do I access it? Is there a generic version? Also what is Dut? I'm assuming thats a abbreviation? And where do I access it? Is there also a generic copy?

 

Thanks guys for info and enlightening me on other products.

:D

Regards

Minoxidil foam is, as the name suggests, a foam version of the popular topical hair stimulant. It has the advantage of being less greasy, non drip and easier to apply. I think it's hard to get hold of in the UK but I've seen it on Ebay.

Dut (dutasteride) is a DHT blocker drug similar to finasteride. Developed by GlaxoSmithKline, it's sold as Avodart and there are also various generic versions available. Dut was licensed for BPH (prostate enlargement) a couple of years ago and it was expected to be licensed for MPB as well. However, GSK cancelled its hair loss trials after a promising performance at FDA phase 2 (see charts attached), probably for commercial reasons - the drug is very similar to Propecia, so it would be hard to find a profitable niche in the market.

Dut blocks both of the enzymes (5AR1 and 5AR2) that turn testosterone into DHT. Finasteride only blocks 5AR2. However, 5AR2 is thought to be the key cause of damage to hair follicles, not 5AR1. Dut also has an advantage here, because it blocks 5AR2 up to 98.5% compared to 90% with finasteride.

 

Dut is a much stronger drug than fin, with a much longer half-life (i.e., the time it takes to clear your body). If you experience sides from Propecia, you will experience them more strongly with Dut.
