    I think I'm gonna order it today. It looks like it would work pretty well.

    headaches

    Has anyone experienced any type of headaches or light headedness while using topical spironolactone? I've been using it for the last several days and I have been feeling a bit light headed. Could it be that I am applying too much? I'm applying a good amount. The thing is that my brain is right under my scalp! It probably is doign somthing right? Could it cause anytype of brain damage?

    Thanks!

    I use it in the evening. Seal it in with Australian Golden Emu Oil. My hair, though still mostly short strong vellus or terminal ("perhaps alot of intermediate") has noticibly improved after using Fluridil (about 4 months now) as well as finasteride, minoxidil, laser comb and other therapies I use.
    Being expensive, I use one third of a vial, it lasts longer.

    I am a diffuse thinner (26), very thin hair at the back of the vertex and some temporal recession. After 1,5 years of finasteride i am still losing ground. I comb my hair backwards to hide my thinning mop, which sucks.
    I want to add spironolactone to my regimen to see if it can halt the thinning. Now, i've heard that the 5% solution is too thick to use on parts of the scalp that aren't slick bald yet, so the 2% solution sounds like a better option. However, apart from the top i also want to spend a bit of spironolactone on the temples.
    So what do you guys advice, 2 or 5%? And how long will a bottle last, taking into account that i am planning to use the majority on the vertex and a small amount on the temples (once a day)? Thanks.

    advice

    I have been using spironolactone 5% from Dr. Lee and also Xandrox 5%. I have been feeling a bit light headed and not as sensitive to touch. My arms and legs feel like they are not attached to my body. It is so strange. I took a few weeks not using anythign and my symtoms seem to reappear when I continue using the products. Has anyone experienced the same? What should I do at this point?

    Try to stop each one separately,
    and see if the sides fade away.

    Has anyone tried the spironolactone from Lipoxidil out of interest?

    It seems pricey, but it supposedly doesn't need refrigerating like Dr Lees 2% formula and you might be able to only use it once a day with it having liposomes

    Good idea. I'd stop the xandrox 5% first - I bet that's the culprit.

    Interesting to go back to the beginning of this thread and see those forum members from a few years back who aren't so active any more.

    Hopefuily they're all jettin' around somewhere w/ full heads of hair.

    Has anyone noticed a decrease in body hair while they have been on spironolactone?

    Re: Telogen Effluvium from Propecia


    Can someone explain Telogen Effluvium to me? Is this just excessive shedding that won't stop? Can you get it with minoxidil or only finasteride? Thnx.

    (Why is there no spironolactone board??)

    Just got my Lees 5% today....I can tell already that a substantial amount is going to get wasted right into my hair...its going to be hard to apply "a thin layer to the scalp" as I still have a good amount of hair where I'd like to apply it....

    has anyone successfully thinned the 5% cream into something more applicable? Any tips on application?

    Also, does the 2% really smell like sulfur?

    Thanks in advance

    hey funk

    The 2% from Dr Lee does smell a bit odd, bit not sulphur-like. I find that the smell goes away really quickly anyway.

    hey funk,

    2% from Dr Lee. Ive been using it for only a few weeks so no sense in making a usefulness judgement. But so far, no awful smell, no shedding, and no itchi-ness. I find it easy to apply and it was shipped very quickly. From the US to Australia.

    any other questions just PM me.
