    Recession buster: Diluting 5% minoxidil to go further

    Can you water down extra strength Minox?

    I can buy Extra Strength Regaine (5%) at about the same price as standard 2% stuff. I probably dont need extra strength but it was all I could buy at the time at the price.

    I am currently unsing half the amount of 5% and it seems to be working ok with Finasteride.

    Can it be diluted with water? to go further?

    Minoxidil is only sparingly soluble in water, so I'd be afraid that some of the minoxidil would drop out of solution if you started adding water to it. Just use a smaller quantity of the solution.
    1) No, damnit, finasteride for hairloss was NOT an "accidental discovery".
    2) No, you do NOT have to use minoxidil and Retin-A at the same time.
    3) No, washing your skin does NOT make it produce more sebum.

    Sounds like water might ruin the solution? If so try to just spread less more..?
    Shorter hair allows me to spread 0.5ml no worries. Longer hair seems to soak a lot up...

    Anyone out there doing anything similar?

    Dude, Minoxidil is really cheap.... its about $6 a month. If you're that hard up buy some Raman noodles.

    Since you have absolutely no idea what his current situation is, your comment is absolutely unnecessary and extremely rude. If he had stated above that he lost his job and had a family to support would you have said such nonsense?

    Well beaner, I don't think he would be on this board and spend his money on finasteride and other hair loss products if he lost his job and his family was starving... use some common sense.

    ...and you still don't know what his situation is. You are just surmising based on the fact that he's using fin---why don't YOU use some common sense before tossing out posts that could be offensive.

    Rogaine costs about 20 CENTS PER DAY.

    I'm sure he could cut 20 cents/day someplace else if had to

    Like HT55 said, he can cut a a few cents a day if he has to. Get over it, you make no sense beaner.

    You missed my point entirely--it's not about the cost of minoxdil, it's about being rude to people you don't know about a potentially sensitive subject, and if that makes no sense to you TAINTED-MEAT you have a lot of growing up to do.
