Could you tell me what oral med would be best for female body hair?
I’m leaning towards finasteride. I considered Fluatmide but didn’t like what I read about the possibility of toxicity.
IS finasteride better (or safer) than flutamide for women? Is there something safer? Which would you choose? Is the propecia strength the best for women; or would the proscar strength do a better job?
Also - do these meds work on ALL body hair (facial; underarm; pubic; leg etc?) And - do they thin the hair on your head (or help it) … in women?
And finally – I’ve read that the anti-androgens can affect metabolism. Does this mean they cause weight LOSS or weight GAIN? (slowing or speeding up metabolism)?
I’m a little confused … any advice or suggestions you could offer about which one is best for women … would be greatly appreciated!
