Natural Food Anti Androgen
Decrease in hormones: Taking an anti androgen decreases male hormones. Low levels of testosterone/dhea can lead to fatigue, low energy levels, depression, decrease in memory/focus concentration, abdominal fat, change in cholesterol; do not take this unless you are under the supervision of a physician for a medical condition.
Anti-androgen: Can you please explain why you are seeking anti-androgen?
Several for purpose?: Finsteride blocks many unwanted side-effects of testosterone, by blocking its conversion to 5-dht, which causes baldness (male pattern), prostatic hypertrophy, and excess hair growth elsewhere. Minoxidil applied topically (rogaine) has a similar topical effect. Spironolactone also is effective!
Dx drives the Rx: This question requires a bit more info. What is the diagnosis that requires the use of anti-androgen therapy. For instance, Lupron (leuprolide) has a clear-cut indication and use as an anti-androgen. Depo-provera has also been labeled an anti-androgen when used off-label.
Anti androgen: I don't quite understand why you mention "anti -androgen"! If you are concerned about obesity you should have your primary doctor evaluate your issue and when that is complete he should refer you to a dietitian.
Anything is possible: But I strongly advise against buying any medications online. You will not know if the medication is actually what you intended to purchase. Even if it is, the drug may have been adulterated or contaminated. I strongly advise against purchasing drugs online.See 1 more doctor answer

Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate): There are 2 new anti androgens available Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate). Xtandi works at 3 places as testosterone enters cancer cells. Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) needs to be taken with Prednisone to prevent side effects. Both work well and usually help for 1-2 years and have been shown to delay the need for chemotherapy.
Is there a anti androgen nasal spray or atomizer available somewhere? How effective are they? Thanks
I get nightmares every day I wish I didn't mess with hormones! Will using anti-androgen/testosterone blockers help?
Confusing question: Your question is not very clear...However, my best guess is that you a) took some testosterone and b) began having problems with nightmares and c) now have anxiety about these nightmares. If those assumptions are true. Consult with a md about weaning off the testosterone. If the nightmares persist there is a medication that might help (prazosin).

Not married. PCOS. On metformin. Should I also take anti-androgen meds now too? And Clomid (clomiphene)? Or I should only take metformin, exercise & healthy diet?
See Below...: I would only recommend Clomid (clomiphene) if you are trying to get pregnant. It is not recommended for long-term use or just to treat PCOS. Spironolactone (antiandrogen) is a good addition if you have excessive hair growth around your mouth or other places that are unusual for a women. Excercise and weight loss are are the best treatment for PCOS and work well in motivated women. Best wishes!
