    I'm posting this here because I know steroids have a side effect of hair loss, and although this board isn't a "steroid board" I'm sure some of you have experience dealing with this.

    I've been on pretty large doses of Prednisone for the greater part of a year now and the hair loss has become pretty noticeable. I've been taking it for Crohn's disease and now that I'm finally weening myself off of it, I'm wondering if there are any solutions to counter act the loss?

    From what ive read provillus/procerin is top notch as far as results/side effects go...

    Its a minoxidil solution and some natural DHT blockers that work in unison to combat hair loss. Dont trust me though, im drunk as fuck...google bitch, google.

    As for me, im 20 and thinning, I use kroger brand rogaine nukkkkkaaa


    edit: im not sure if there's a minoxidil solution included in the procerin/provillus program's, i remember reeaind that at some point buit I cant find it now, fuck me in the face

    prednisone is a non anabolic steroid. I think that makes it ok to talk about.

    It's not bad enough to require it to be buzzed.. I know this is OT's solution but I was looking for some more realisitic answers like the first post. Thanks for the input anyway.

    Try minoxidil + finasteride (propecia) or dutesteride (avodart). Read up on www.hairlossforums.com (i think that's the site).
