Brief Answer:
About less facial hair treatment;

Detailed Answer:
Some men just can’t grow beards, no matter how hard they try. They have what one might call “perpetual baby-face syndrome.” This isn’t a real medical condition, but many men suffer from it nonetheless.

In general, most males have around the same level of testosterone. Men who grow thick beards are more sensitive, or responsive, to testosterone than their baby-faced peers.
In other words, the capacity to grow a beard has nothing to do with manliness, virility or testosterone levels, and everything to do with genetics.
The treatment you are taking is effective mainly in hair loss rather than in growing the beard. They consist in increasing the blood supply of the hair follicle and have an antiandrogenic effect. In most of the cases are ineffective.

You may discuss with your treating physician regarding to testosterone treatment ( even though your testosterone level is normal), sometimes increasing the testosterone level can result in increasing the sensitivity of the hair follicle to testosterone.
Of course, your treating physician will inform you about the risks and profits and decide rather to start treatment or not.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

I will be 54 next month. My health seems fine, had blood work done complete & all good. I run a lot, try to sty in shape, last 2 years taking vyvanse - dropped ot to 50 mg per day. Also injecting 200 mg of testosterone per week. Wanted to know if someone at my age can do that for say 20 years?

Hi, I am currently taking 1). Methadone 10 mg. pills 120 mg. per day. 2). dilauted 8mg. tabs 16mg. per day 3). Depakote 250 mg. tabs and I take 750 mg. per day, and 4). testosterone injections 200 mg. every 2 weeks. So here s my question, I m also taking baclofen I don t know the dose but I would think it s whatever a Dr. would prescribe to a person like me taking the meds I have listed above I take 3 tablets a day and I m currently experiencing a lot of muscle spasms so last 3 nights I took 2 baclofen at bedtime, and this morning when my wife tried to wake me up I must have been dreaming because when she asked me some pretty normal questions I gave her some strange answers to her questions, infact one question she asked me the answer I gave her involved one of my aunts that if I was awake and in a normal state of mind the aunt that I mentioned has been dead for like 8-9 years, I m just wondering if baclofen mixed w/ any of these meds I have mentioned could cause strange dreams???
