    Default CB vs RU

    Is CB an anti-androgen just the same as RU?

    If CB has less side effects and more safety to use with similar effect, why
    bother using RU as you know preparing RU is quite troublesome

    By the way, is that there will be a CB group buying soon?

    I think it has to do with not yet knowing the appropriate vehicle to deliver CB with. Also, maybe something I do with injections.? Don't take my word for it, but I think the vehicle statement is probably correct.

    CB is derived from corticosteroid on top of being an AA, so it should help with inflammation and immune response as well. RU is strictly AA. CB has the superior safety profile by far. As Cladestine mentions the vehicle to make CB effective is not known well. It is a more complicated (and physically larger) molecule that is difficult to get past the dermis, to the hair follicle, while keeping it unchanged and 'active' ie still effective. I am going to use CB and RU in the near future and compare the two.

    How are you going to use CB?
    By injections or trying with different vehicles?

    Ah...one more question (sorry for my non-stop asking)
    My MPB is inherited from my dad, I have a hair-loss history of around 6 years
    I started thinning at the crown and now a bald spot in my crown area
    So I think i must begin my MPB battle right now
    I haven't used any Big3 or any other things before
    I plan to start with Rogaine alone, should I start with 2% or 5%?
    and what result should I expect?
