The reasons I chose my dosage were because of seeing others on 10mg make big recoveries and knowing how stubborn my hairloss is. I was originally on 10mg tablets taken in halves (5mg) for a few months, then bumped up to the whole pill daily. Eventually I was not able to source them anymore and switched to drinking topical solution. Heres a pic of how I measure. On the dropper theres 4 line measurements in 1/4 increments. 1ml =50mg and 0.25ml =12.5mgAndy boy. I'm concerned about your well being, 10mg and above of oral minoxidill is for hypertension, it's not a hairloss dosage, for hairloss 1mg to 2.5mg and maximum of 5mg is used for hairloss prescribed by derms, I had taken 10mg before had bad water retention in face and skipping heart beats, minoxidil is a silent and slow killer very bad for heart it causes fluid buildup around your heart it got many nasty negative side effects that you don't even notice as it damages you slowly, not to mention it blocks collagen production in your body so you taking 12mg is absurd. I know a guy on this forum that took only 6mg and he regrew his hairline after 12 months. What made you choose this high 12.5mg dosage? Did you give a lower dosage of like 5mg at least a year to see effect or you are just a very desperate boy?
It was much easier to measure a consistent 12.5mg using the line rather than to guess, thats why im on 12.5mg
EDIT: Incase anyone was wondering that dropper is 3 years old and the "dirt" is from concealer haha. The other droppers i get from new bottles are different and dont have 1/4 measurement lines
