    Default Minoxidril Direct experiences

    Hi there,

    Just joined the board and just got myself on over-the-counter Regaine which is quite expensive! I am 3V going on 4 on the NW scale, so not even sure if Minox would do much but worth a shot. I am not going to try Fin as there is nothing that I am willing to do that will put my sex life at risk! :O

    Anyway, I was looking at cheaper places to get Minox and saw this Minoxidril Direct website mentioned quite a lot. I was just wondering if anyone here uses it and if the products are legit and same as what you get at the pharmacy. Alternatively, if someone can suggest other reliable suppliers for Minox 5, I would really like to know.

    Thanks!

    The chances of experiencing sexual side effects from Propecia or generic Finasteride are very small.

    Regaine/Rogaine is kind of expensive. What I do is I use Rogaine foam in the morning because it is stealthy and then use generic liquid Minoxidil in the evening to save money. Either way it is best to get the medicine from a source you are comfortable with, such as your local pharmacy.

    NW 3V to 4 is certainly treatable, especially if you are taking Finasteride to arrest further loss. If you are not willing to take Finasteride to arrest further loss, you probably need to adjust your expectations. Minoxidil works on its own, but it is more limited in what it can do if you are not doing anything to treat the cause of your hair loss. The laser comb could probably help as well, but again it is more limited in what it can do if you are not willing to do anything to treat the cause of your hair loss. If you are not already using Nizoral in place of your regular shampoo once per week, consider adding that to your regimen.

    Have you considered using hair fibers such as Toppik to help improve the way your hair looks for now while you are waiting for some to grow back?

    Thumbs up Minoxidril Direct experiences

    Hi I use minoxidil-direct.co.uk all the time, it's all legit. I personally get the foam, its been a wonder from the original liquid, the liquid used to make your hai greasy, and often you could get white residue sliding down your face if you werent to carefull, also I got minor spots on the forehaed from all the liquid trickling down, major pain in the ass,, worked though.

    get the foam, it is super easy to use, actually adds body to your hair and no grease and no mess.

    You get the legit products all wrapped up good service

    hope that helps

    Thumbs up

    I agree with UK Responder - All valid and accurate information. I would also suggest using the Foam rather than the standard liquid formula!

    Default Hi please read this

    hey man i suggest you take .5mg propecia, i wouldnt want you to take it (since it can cause serious side effects) but since you decided to do it, i am doing this for your own good.

    What i found out was that, starting with .5mg propecia is the best way to go at least for 6 months.

    from my research, it looks like the published papers from the fda show that 1mg and .5mg propecia and even .2mg show side effects but the severity is greatly reduced with lower than 1mg as well as effectiveness.

    since the severity is lower at .5mg you are less likely to not get permanent side effects IF YOU EXPERIENCE SIDE EFFECTS.

    I have started taking propecia as well since I have nothing to lose anyway....i got no sides at all for but its too early to judge ive been on it two weeks.

    If I keep experience no SIDES at all after 6 months ill bump it up to 1mg.

    I have also experienced tons of small hairs in my temples using rogaine (it's supposed not to work there btu more at the crown top of the head), so you should be GOOD on the top with rogaine.

    Watch out for propecia Im closely monitoring myself and wouldnt want anybody to get permanent side effects if I could stop it.

    Chances are very very very slim but still i take caution since i am such unlucky guy, bunch of bad bad things have happen to me besides balding lol.

    However, this is just my newbie opinion, the dudes above me know a lot more. 1mg might be better since the beggining because u might save some hairs between the 6 month .5mg.

    anyway your choice, i just wanted to give you this info.

    Good luck, hope everything works for you.

    Hey Maradona,

    Thanks for the input. I am just sticking with Rogaine for now on. At the end of the day, I would like to stop hair loss but I am not so desperate to risk something much for it. So, I will just shave my head if things do not work out

    Thanks for your concern and input. Much appreciated.

    Default Ru it uP

    Hey man...you could always RU it up. RU is a new treatment and in hairloss forums I believe they are experiment and a group has gotten a good amount of it.

    There's some dudes who have thick hair thanks to RU.

    RU although experimental I believe it's safer than FIN.

    Those guys are the other forums are crazy, they talk about castration and dicks falling all over the place like it doesn't matter....but yeah side effects from propecia are slim...theyre some brave dudes.

    Like i told you im taking propecia but if it doesnt work/gives me sides I' m gonna use RU, same results as propecia but your dick will be intact.

    Do your research there are many treatments some even more dangerous than propecia itself...xD but there is also good treatments like RU.

    Anyways, this will be my last post. I have in this forum...need to get busy for school , I wish you good luck and the replicel results are coming this Quarter !!! Very exciting : ) >

    Tracy C, you are absolutely incorrect, I know of 25 dif males, that buy hormones from me, 23 of them had to quit taking them due to sexual side effects. I too had to quit. Thankfully My condition went away, after 6 months. If you dont have a penis, how can you even make a statement like that! This board has more horror stories then positive stories. Let me steal your estrogen from your body, and tell me how sexually turned on you are, or can perform.
    I speak from facts, not from literature.
    Google my sign on name, maybe then you will have an idea who you have been debating with!
    Im sorry, but I find myself being very skeptical of you. I swear I honestly believe you are affiliated with some of these companies! I might be wrong, but this is what I do for a living!!
    Im on this board for a reason!!!!!

    I didnt notice side effects til about 2 months. If your testes start to feel swollen, or tender, jump off. If you wake up and no morning strong erection, get off. If you notice watery semen, get off. If you notice loss of sensitivity, get off. If your nipples get sensitive, get off. Trust me, you will experience at least one of he above. BTW, I only dosed at .5 mg ed! I never had any issues down stairs before Propecia, in fact just the opposite. Im lucky as my sexual performance, and desire has fully returned. I did wait about 6 months though, before I could safely say that! Im sorry, but its not worth the long term damage it can do, especially for you young guys.
