    Haven’t recovered from minoxidil shed after 7ish months.

Stopping can do that to in reverse imo. How much youll lose i...

    RU58841: 2 or 3 questions for the experts

    Its an Anti androgen with a short half life 1 hour with its metabolites having a half life of 20 hours. It doesnt stop the androgen activity once you stop. Makes sense which is why you see the same from stopping minoxidil

I just bought the pharma...

    Alternate to ethanol for ru58841 solution in the UK?

    Yeah so pharma ethanol isnt meant for drinking. I cant remember exactly why but it has to do the chemicals.that come alongside it during process of making it. Liquor typically is distilled while i think theres stuff like benzene in the pharma stuff. Its just wine you dont wanna...
