I use the men's bathroom, I'm a cis man, are you projecting here a little bit snowflake?
This is all great information. Appreciate all the anecdotes. Dr Pathomvanich has also wrote about how impressed he was with low dose loniten on h r network. There's also a chapter on google books with pictures of patients who have vastly improved on low dose oral minoxidil.
Some info from Brayan related to topical vs oral
Don't forget that the speed of absorption may be important, too. Minoxidil is absorbed about 10 times faster after oral intake, compared to topical application. Here's a statement from "Percutaneous Absorption of Minoxidil in Man" (Arch Dermatol -- Vol 121, 1985): "The data cited by Weiss et al areimportant in this regard. Serum levels of minoxidil ranged from 0.2 to 5.0 ng/mL two to three hours following topical application, butaveraged 155.5 ng/mL one hour following an oral dose of 5 mg/day. Thus, it is possible that the slow rate of absorption associated with topical application leads to blood and tissue levels that always remain below a critical 'threshold' value necessary to trigger a toxic reaction."
Name changed, but wouldn't expect a dummy to know that.
Now back to the topic at hand which you have not contributed to whatsoever with your off topic comments.
Here is a pic!
This is from after hormones for like 11 months and finasteride for several years. Topical minoxidil for 10+ years but before oral minoxidil. All that little stuff started after HRT, and everything behind it to a nw3 was as thin as it is in this pic before hrt.
Ima get a good current pic to show progress. Ill post it sometime today, im at work atm.
That’s where i need growth.. looks good man
Im a lady my dude
ANyways most of that is def oral minoxidil...and maybe derma rolling since I started same time. Been on everything else too long for it to be just now working.
Ha! My bad - regardless it’s coming along
Its NP, I was just saying. Anyways yea it would be great if all this grew in. Im really throwing the kitchen sink at it. Not sure I have anything left to add at this point honestly.
Hey man is ThailandPharmacy legit? I bought my first 100 10mg pack from InhousePharmacy but its so expensive, Thailand Pharmacy would save me hundreds of dollars a year. How long does it take you to receive the tablets and do you think they are the real thing?
joining in on the same question, i first ordered loniten from inhousepharmacy but it got stuck in customs
bought from thailandpharmacy and this time it got through, i got the pills called "minox10" so wondering if you got the same .
also i dropped topical minoxidil as of starting the oral and since i'm only 10 days in i don't really know if i'm using the real deal here or not.
Im using the same one. It's legit
That's incredible! I've been debating switching to loniten over topical but there is a history of heart problems in my family. My maternal grandfather died at 43 from cardiac arrest. If I'm already on topical, is it really that much more dangerous to take loniten?
Hey buddy. I hate being the bearer of bad news but when I ordered my next shipment I was sent minox10 too instead of Loxidil Forte. Since making the switch my hair has steadily declined... I did quit finasteride around the same time though, but I don't think that was a problem as it did more harm than good! What bothers me is you said you are not sure if the Minox10 is real, I don't think it is (or maybe it's a bad batch) but all I know is I am shedding a lot more since I got on minox10. It's depressing to think because Loxidil Forte was without a doubt the genuine product and they replaced it with bunk pills. I even e-mailed them to complain but received no reply, go figure. It's a shame as their prices were unbeatable... I think I'm going to just start buying the rogaine bottles and drinking the solution.. Then at least I know what I'm getting is the real Minoxidil!! Not very happy right now but I'm confident I will bounce back when I get my hands on some real minoxidil. I'm willing to give it a couple more weeks or maybe a month just to see if things get better but I'm doubting that.
@bridgeburn are you sure? How long have you been on Minox10 for? I'm questioning everything right now as just before I went on minox10 my hair was looking Great and now it's not looking so good a month into it with a lot of shedding.
Bro.. your shedding is without a doubt because you quit finasteride. Why did you quit it ??
I received minox10 as well...
Because it accelerated my hairline recession, I was never above baseline on finasteride only below and it kept getting worse. Only time I ever regrew was with oral minoxidil and I still do have some of that regrown hair and overall my hair is still a little thicker so I'm sticking with minox10 for a few more weeks to see what happens. I don't think finasteride is causing this shed. It's not as bad as the shed I got when I started oral minoxidil but it's definitely noticeable when you go from shedding almost no hairs to easily over 100 a day.
The shedding after you quit is the proof it was working, and you will shedding for the next 3 months if you dont take it again..
It cant cause hair loss, finas its not rhe culprit for your hairline recession .
I got the minox10 aswell though I’m sure it’s real as I got sides that correlate with oral minoxidil
minoxidil will not cause hair loss, its a hypertensive, it has no correlation to androgens. Your shedding is because you quit finasteride, DHT is no longer being inhibited and therefore the surmountable effect of finasteride is gone, allowing DHT to go back to giving a 100% response, damaged the hair. Why did you stop finasteride, there is no way minoxidil alone will maintain your hair.
