I have recently read an article stating that the combination of steriod use and propecia can enhance hair loss rther than protect it and that they should not be used together. Is this true?
Many steroid users want to protect their hair from loss and steroids are known to increase the hormones and byproduct DHT that promote hair loss. There are more body builders using steroids with hair loss than those who work out but do not use steroids. Many body builders ask me if Propecia will help them keep their hair. The best thing to do is stop taking steroids, but using Propecia can not hurt. There is logic that any DHT block will help and Propecia (finasteride) can accomplish this in theory. The key question to ask is: Will the negative impact of steroids on my hair be offset by the positive impact of a good DHT blocker like finasteride? The answer here is a theoretical, “probably”.
