https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03891667

Diencephalon 5 alpha-reductase activity showed a highly significant increase (p less than 0.01) after a single administration of carbamazepine, reserpine, diazepam, phenytoin, phenobarbital or disulfiram. A significant increase (p less than 0.05) was also found after a single administration of methylphenidate, caffeine or methamphetamine.”

Anyone used this before here?

@Andrew35 I appreciate you posting this. I think that this is a big deal for many on this site. The promise that Disulfiram is showing in the treatment of parasitic infections is hopeful. What are your thoughts? Is it a treatment you are considering? Do you believe you have Lyme or some other parasitic infection, or were you interested because of the DHT connection?
