Its absolute insanity to try that stuff on your own. It never ceases to amaze me that people not only contemplate it, but actually do it. Anyone who’s willing to risk their life like that would do better to spend those thousands on a psychiatrist. Seriously. Hairsite should be deleting threads that talk about it as a public service so that the insanity of one nut doesn’t spread to the numerous others on this board.
There are guys who view taking Finasteride or Dut in exactly the same way. Where do you draw the line? IMHO just because the FDA says something is safe doesn’t make it so. I’m not saying the situation is equivalent but at some point everything is a risk.
Is it a whole lot less risky to be a phase#1 trialist for this same stuff?
I’ll bet there would be less outcry around here about the person’s craziness then. But why? Just because some docs were going to be officially overseeing it? Just because there would be detailed notes taken about whatever damage it did?
I agree that it’s a real risk. The safety concerns have been pulling me away from doing a full attempt too, particularly with the prospect of the immune suppression that would be involved. But I do not think this is flat out black & white case of stupidity just to try it.
The Folica experiment doesn’t create any conditions that some FDA-approved normal meds cannot potentially create on their own. We’re basically talking about ONE drug + an weak immune system + and superficial injury. The cyclosporine is there just to recreate the weakened immune system conditions that would likely be present in someone taking Genfilitnib in the first place.
Nothing risked, nothing gained. I haven’t done it but I’m not too proud to admit that I hope that someone else will.
