    FDA site: In the voluntary recall by Perfect solutions, this is what was said in regard to azeliac acid:

    'Azelaic acid contained in the topical products could make the skin where it is applied more sensitive to sunburn.'

    This is what was said in regards to Ketoconazole [in Nizoral]

    'Ketoconazole contained in the shampoo product could cause hair discoloration and abnormal hair texture, removal of the curl from permanently waved hair, itching, rash, skin irritation and dry skin . . .

    . . . and Hair regrowth shampoo enhanced with Ketoconazole and salicylic acid, 180mL, to the consumer level. The products are deemed “unapproved new drugs” under the law and U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations and may present potential health hazards.'

    My question to Tracey. On this basis why are you not against Nizoral?

    thats great in theory but i'm not in a place that I can do that... for a few reasons.

    I can't be the only one who had some success with minox 5% / azelaic acid


    is there no reliable source out there????

    If any company tries to sell such a blend in the US, they will likely be shut down eventually. Then you will need to find another source again, and then again when that source gets shut down. This will continue over and over. So no, you will never find a reliable source on your own.

    These shady suppliers are getting shut down because they are including meds in the blends that require a prescription from a doctor. Dr. Lee tried working around that requirement and he got caught. Others will get caught too. Lipogaine might be available now, but it is only a matter of time before they get caught and shut down too.

    It is usually worth while to do things the right way. Work with your doctor.

    Dude, whatever you buy just don't buy a brand called "Dualgen 15%" (on ebay). That's all I can tell you or you're going to regret it.

    Now, I'm not sure why you say Kirkland brand is just water. Kirkland has been around for many many years and it's a trusted brand and I have been using it for as many years. Sometimes I use Rogaine too.

    Seems like Lipogaine is a scam that steels pics from transplant sites

    I don't know if they are a scam or not, but if they are including a prescription med in the blend and selling it to US customers, they are breaking the law and will likely get caught and shut down.

    Shut up and don't annoy people on the internet, you liar! You are a hysterical nut not knowing what he actually writes. You were losing your transplanted hairs for about half a year, and because DualGen didn't help you to solve this problem after several weeks, you are now attacking this product like if you were out of your senses.

    I'm glad I saw this, I was thinking about buying some of lipogaine but guess ill mix them off my list. Well I can just buy my own azelaic acid flakes and some saw palmetto/beta sis and make my own formula with generic minox.
