After speaking with the guy who ran b5hairloss.com, he said propecia also stopped his hair loss. Since both propecia and avodart address DHT, my hypothesis is that megadosing b5 either increases the amount of DHT produced by your body (by messing up the adrenals?) or increases the sensitivity of the hair follicle to DHT. Saw plametto is a natural DHT inhibitor, one may take it either orally or apply topically. Here is a topical thread for saw palmetto.
One may also avodart/propecia of course with the risk of side effects. There are also two experimental dht blockers you can only order from overseas, they are RU and CB, both are topical. CB is also used to treat acne.
I received your message itsoveryes, saw palmetto is actually what I have been taking but as I have said I am far from sure it is working.
I actually had to stop it for a couple of weeks because it was giving me brain fog, which was not good considering I was taking my final university exams!
I have started taking it again in the last week but every other day instead of daily as it seems like powerful stuff. I will keep you guys updated but as of right now I am still losing a lot of hair but with potential regrowing at the same time.
p.s. regarding possible loss of libido that some people report, for me it is the opposite!
Maybe you should try dumping 3 pills in argan oil like the guy did in the link and applying topically. He sleeps with it on his head and then washes it off in the morning. Have stopped rogaine foam, gave me bags under my eyes in only a few days due to the vasodilation. Have dropped atomidine temporarily so it doesn't interfere with my upcoming tests.
I am listing the tests I am having done in case anyone else wants to have the exact same tests. Will post results when I have them.
Comp metabolic panel w/eGPR
Lipid Panel (Fasting Specimen)
CBC (Hgb, Hct, RBC, WBC, Pit)
PT with INR
Vitamin D, 25 Hydroxy, LC/MS
24hr urine for creatinine and free ??? cortisol
