The ABC Homeopathy Forum

are arnica 6c and propecia compatible?

I want to start my son on arnica for his acne as I have read here that it works well. He is 21. He is taking propecia which he started about 1 yr ago to prevent hair loss and doesn't seem to want to go off this because it seems to have controlled his hairloss. I wonder if the 2 are compatible??

What are the ingredients of "Propecia."?

finasteride, a synthetic 4-azasteroid compound, is a specific inhibitor of steroid type II 5x-reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts adrogen testosterone into 5x-dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride is 4-azaandrost-1-ene-17 carboxamide, N-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-3-oxo-(5x,17B)- The empiracal formula of finasteride is C23H36N2O2 and its molecular weight is 373.55. It is a white crystalaline powder and freely soluble in choloform and in lower alcohol solvents and practically insoluble in water. (this is what I copied from the website).

It sounds like a steroid.I am not sure.

It is not advisable to use homeo medicines along with steroids,as they will not be effective.

Let us wait for further opinions.
