    Default The 15% Solution?

    I started 15% Min about a month ago. I get it on line from Perfect Image. I am also using their shampoo since I could not find Nizoral any place. This is my fist experience with any kind of Min. I was on Fin for a number of years. I dropped it due to all the negitive info that has come out about it.Fin worked for me from the perspective of stopping hair loss. I didn't notice any gains though.

    I have been using it twice a day on my thinning areas. I haven't noticed any growth or shedding. Getting the liquid where I want it and getting it to stay there is difficult. The stuff kind of slides all over the place. It leaves my hair and scalp without hair sticky.

    My question is. Does anybody have any experience with the 15% good or bad? Does anybody have any concerns about using the higher dosage.

    Thanks

    There is a reason the maximum strength of Rogaine is 5% Minoxidil. When you increase the dosage, you also increase the likelyhood of negative side effects of the medication. This is the case with all medications.

    Default 15% Solution

    I understand that. The company however explains that issue in thier pamphlet this way: "A 2% minoxidil solution results in a 0.6 ng/mL and 5% results in a 1.2 ng/ml of minoxidil in serum. This provides more than a 33-fold safety margin with the 2%, more than a 16-fold safety margin for the 5%, and a 5-fold safety margin for the 15% minoxidil solution. So there is an extremely low chance of anyone having a significant adverse effect attributable to topical minoxidil because of its low systemic absorption."

    I was asking if anybody had productive experience with the 15% over the 5% and if any of the doctors here might have experience to share. I don't want to be buying the "hype" . I'd like to buy a product that actually works.
