    Default UK minoxidil options

    Hi all. Iím leaving Belgravia after a couple of years having had enough of their extortionate prices.

    I was paying £90 a month for 12.5% minoxidil with AA, and 1mg finastride.

    Iíve sourced 6 months of identical finastride for now £60, however now looking for a minoxidil thatís comparable in strength.

    Iíve looked at minoxidil max , however slightly concerned at the lack of reviews, and also their website states free packaging however when I contacted them they have confirmed they are charging for postage now (kinda donít trust a company that canít be honest on their website!)

    All I can find is the usual Regaine (5%) and some other random brands on amazon.

    Wondered if anyone else in the UK has successfully found good minoxidil >10%?

    Hey Funk

    Would you mind sharing the place you purchased your minox from in the US? Can I ask what you paid roughly including shipping?

    Thanks

    Hey where are you based? I also use the America place Murray Avenue Apothecary and alternatively I did use the Belgravia clinic before but they are expensive!

    I used this link I found by Jazz1,

    I order from this website as they sell compound minoxidil and topical finesteride etc.

    Prescription has to be filled out here:

    https://www.medicalwellnesscenter.co...INDEXpage.html

    This is the pharmacy they use after the prescription is done.

    https://maapgh.com/hair-growth-solutions.html

    They also give 10% discount if you purchase 3 bottles of their compound Hairloss products.

    Why is Regaine the only minoxidil product you can buy in pharmacies and stores in the UK? The only option for UK buyers seems to be using ebay or third party websites that ship overseas, every single online UK pharmacy only sells Regaine, is there some sort of ban on other minoxidil products here? It's very odd, feels like a conspiracy!! I find it very strange as I am sure there is a very large demand for the product.
