I use 0.5 and sometimes it hurts when I press it harder.
Anyways, I was looking into eye drops prices, and I don't know how economical it is because 10 ml costs around $10 + shipping. 10 ml wouldn't last very long.

How often and how long should one use it to see some results?
Any guesses?
There are some cheaper eye drops around in the UK which contain Sodium Cromoglicate http://www.pharmplexdirect.com/galph...n&currency=GBP

Can also get it on prescription in capsule format. http://www.pharmplexdirect.com/nalcr...n&currency=GBP

This is definitely getting some hype:

I don't agree with you Mojo. You're such a drama queen - you must by gay. And balding gay guys are the worst.

Anyway. I think that Merck (propecia) know that companies like Histogen are coming. I speculate that this is why they are announcing this potential solution now. They have bled propecia for as long as they can - nek minute!

And if there is a patent then Merck could easily afford to buy that patent.

Question

I've been wondering, since Cotsarelis is heading up Follica, and that treatment (from what we know) doesn't target PGD2, how does that affect the chances of Follica being released? We obviously don't know anything about their phase 2 results or if they're even planning for phase 3. But do you think this recent discovery negates Follica's method as to what sparks regrowth of hair?

You would think Cotsarelis would be promoting his own product, yet in the interview video posted earlier in this thread he instead suggests that an effective MPB treatment could come from the PGD2 blocking drugs currently in clinical trials.

It doesn't negate Follica's other research, which we don't know much about because it's kept tightly under wraps but seems to involve wounding and lithium carbonate, a drug for bipolar disorder.

But to be honest I don't expect much from Follica. They seem to be making only a half-hearted effort towards commercialising their work and Cotsarelis seems to be more interested in the research than the practice. This is why some guys here get on his case, but I don't see the problem with it. He's making some good discoveries, it's just the ungrateful pr*cks on this board who seem to think he was put on this earth to fix their own personal hair loss.

If you read some of the earlier stuff on this thread you will see that several of the guys involved in the study with Cotsarelis work for companies that have patents over those PGD2 blocking drugs. So it's not Cotsarelis personally who's benefitting but several of the other study authors are.

Oh ! Nice homophobia right there.

I'd rather be realistic. But if you prefer licking Cotsarelis's ass with his ''findings'' ... go on buddy.

He got insane media attention for something discovered long time ago.
I wonder how he did it.

I even saw this shit on my local news...a channel of my town only.
