View Full Version : ******* Replacement - Possible 15% + Azelaic, No Propylene Glycol on Amazon!

Since I've been addicted to the crack that is ******* 15 Plus for many years now, I'm freaked out about Dr. Lee getting shut down. I'm frantically looking for a replacement, and on Amazon I just found this -


It's not Dualgen or Perfect Image Solutions, it's from a company called Professional Hair Products. It's a 15% Minox with 5% Azelaic acid with NO PROPYLENE GLYCOL! Is this the one we're looking for?

I can't wait to hear feedback, I may pick up a bottle if no word in the next few days from other BTT readers. Does anyone have any other replacements they're now using that work well?

Just use 5%................

I'd like to stick with 15%, I did get a better reaction to it over the 5%...

Hi fbueller: If you go to a doctor you can get a Rx for it and a compounding pharmacy will make it for you. Hope this helps.

The base is glycerine and you can add retinol which enhances penetration as well. Look up 'compounding pharmacies' in your area and give them a call. Most of them do bio-identical hormone formulations, but they can compound most any formula. Some of the formulas also contain a form of cortisone to minimize itching or irritation. I'm not a big fan of steroids so I opted not to include it in my formula. But I did add a form of vitamin E that has shown some positive results in minimizing hair loss. I check in from time to time, so let me know how you make out.
