    You can add this to the other 1,000,000 drugs that have been shown to work on mice and "seen promising in fighting hair loss in humans...". Chances are you won't see anything about this after a day or two. I'm sick and tired of those sons of bitches reporting their useless success in treating hair loss in mice. Wake us up when you have something that works in humans.

    Amen to that! Or wake us up "when you are willing" to try something that could work in humans! These mouse researchers really make me sick.

    It's interesting that both lithium carbonate and valproic acid are being mentioned as hair loss treatments... they are both mood stabilisers used to treat bipolar disorder.

    Wonder if the same mechanism is involved for hair or whether it's just coincidental...

    At any rate I have taken both of them in the past (not for bipolar) and I didn't regrow any hair so I'm guessing it would have to be a topical.
