Is it safe to take rogaine (minoxidil) and procerin during puberty to block dht?

In brief: Unknown

This hasn't been studied, to my knowledge, but i'd guess Dht is pretty important during puberty, so it's probably not a good idea to block it during that critical phase.
That said, there is no adequate data on the extent to which procerin blocks Dht (if at all), nor do we know exactly how rogaine (minoxidil) works. But personally, i wouldn't take the chance. And why would you want to do it anyway?
