Very popular with users suffering from hair loss due to anabolic steroids, dutasteride offers significant advantages for many users due to its inhibition of 5a-reductase enzyme and DHT inhibition. Since remedies are very rare for these purposes, dutasteride is becoming increasingly popular. Everything you need to know is here:
The active substance dutasteride is a 5a-reductase inhibitor which blocks the conversion of testosterone into the more effective dihydrotestosterone.
Athletes who complain of dihydrotestosterone-related side effects such as hair loss, oily skin, acne and prostate growth during the intake of steroids benefit from the effect of this active substance. While the first 5a-reductase inhibitor finasteride on the market blocks only a portion of the 5a enzyme responsible for prostate growth and hair loss, dutasteride blocks the complete enzyme, which has a positive effect on the skin. Thus, athletes who also complain about oily skin, as well as acne, resort to dutasteride.
The active substance dutasteride, as mentioned above, blocks the complete 5a-reductase, so that neither hair loss, prostate growth, greasy skin nor acne during a steroid cure with parallel intake of dutasteride are a problem.
The relatively low dosage required for dutasteride is also very positive. Because while finasteride must be dosed with 1-5mg per day, with less effect, 0.5mg of dutasteride is sufficient every day. It has also been shown that this dosage reduces the serum DHT level by approximately 85% within the first week of administration, and after 6 months it is well over 90%. Dutasteride also has a significantly longer half-life with 3-5 weeks versus 6-8 hours in finasteride.
The known side effects associated with dutasteride include impotence, loss of libido, gynecomastia and also partial ejaculation disorders. However, these are reversible and occur in less than 6% of users.
