View Full Version : Need help choosing a minoxidil brand

09-05-2013, 09:17 PM
Hi forum,

I am trying to figure out which brand of minoxidil is the most effective or are they all the same? I prefer a foam just because it looks easier to apply. Besides Rogaine there are plenty of generics i came across (Kirkland, CVS, Lipogaine etc). I was wondering which is the most effective and also does any of them have a DHT blocker that any of you have seen results with?

I am not taking fin nor do I plan on it, too big a risk for me personally. I may go on Saw Palmetto but will see how it goes with just minox. May even try dermarolling before SP.

I have only used kirkland brand minox, foam and liquid. I think its the same as Rogaine, but I am sure there will be people that will tell you differently.

I think Lipogaine contains azelaic acid which I believe may be a DHT blocker? Not sure how effective it is though.

Why is taking fin too much of a risk for you personally? Is it career related?

I use lipogaine once a day and have good results from it :)

This. It will not improve your results from what I have seen.
