    What current product resembles it the most? It was pulled of the market in 2011, then made a short return for a while under a different name. The original Xandrox products were by far the superior minoxidil out there during its time. I can't imagine the people behind it not trying to continue it or selling the production rights to another company.

    Does anyone know if there is a 15% minoxidil product out there that comes close to Dr. Lee's Xandrox effectiveness? Hell, I would even buy an old bottle of Xandrox 15 if someone still has one lying around somewhere. An expired Xandrox bottle would still be more effective than the 15% minoxidil products I tried afterwards... 15% minoxidil users, I would love to hear your thoughts!

    Also, does anyone know if the people behind Murray Ave's Apothecary are the same (or at least partially) who used to compound Dr. Lee's Xandrox minoxidil? Can someone who uses Murray Ave's 15% minoxidil chime in with their experience with their product(s)?

    MAA did not make any products for Dr. Lee. Before Dr. Lee made his own products he used a different pharmacy (also located in Pittsburgh) that compounded his products.

    MAA will only make a cream for any minoxidil product over 5%. I've had a 12.5% cream made for me and I didn't feel that I benefitted from using it.

    Check here for MMA, I had tried Xandrox just before Dr Lee went bust, funny enough I still have the original bottle. Dr Klein was a good guy and great products, but since he passed away everything just went downhill and I found MMA as an alternative works the same so I’m happy.

    Check thread I created help anyone wanting the same products:

    Once again jazz1 is shilling for Murray Avenue. Did you "convince" Susan to make the minoxidil products the same way you "convinced" her to make spironolactone cream? Ha ha ha.

    Thanks for your input but you can hit the search button way back to 2012 on the other forums and see yourself I always praised Dr Klein when Dr Lee was shut in business. The fact that MMA helped me and others when Dr Klein passed away I am more than grateful to share back, I never get paid for helping others just something I enjoy doing because the forums helped me. So thank you for your kind words negative or positive I embrace them as a compliment.

    To add MMA has been formulating minoxidil products way before I even created threads again go hit the search function.

    I will double check when I’m home from work and find that original Xandrox bottle from Dr Lee I still have full of minoxidil.

    Joshua,

    Which formulations (from which vendors) of 15% minoxidil have you tried? I am asking because they are only a handful of online vendors (that is not just a single individual trying to be a backyard chemist), especially in the North America, selling such formulations. How exactly were these products inferior to Xandrox?

    I never fully tried Xandrox but I still have the original full formula before Dr Lee went bust! The time I searched and found Dr Klein as an alternative. Dr Lee was praised on the forums for his 15% liquid formula shame he went bust, I would agree many people claimed no one could match his formulation, people claimed it was the topical solution CURE!

    Dr Klein’s formula worked superb for me I used his 15% mixture for 2 years before he passed away and now his clinic is permanently closed. I had no option to search for an alternative and MMA was one that flagged up on google search. I live in the UK, so ordered from Susan ever since and the formulation has worked exactly the same to maintain my hairline and hair.

    To add I did use S5 cream but Hairlosstalk no longer sell. So I put MMA forward to help people, as mentioned I’m not getting no gains I just enjoy helping people as the forums helped save my hair. I am a firm believer in giving back when you receive honest good help from genuine people.

    Lost quite a bit of hair by the time I was 24 and gained every bit back and more using Xandrox. The stuff was literally a miracle potion. I was able to obtain his process to make it through the patent he filed. Been wanting to give it to a skilled chemist for some time now but haven’t found the right chemist/lab to do it.

    I even went so far as to track down his partners who helped him develop the solution and offered them quite a bit of money to make it for me. I was quickly shit down by them. Have no clue what the hell happened to frighten them so bad. Did they lock Dr. Lee away or something? Very bizarre how he got shut down

    I wonder what made his solution so good. There are plenty was ways to get topical finasteride, Azaeleic acid and minoxidil. Guess he had some vehicle that got it to absorb well and actually get the hair follicles. Never tried it myself

    I would guess he was the one who made 15% liquid based, as I believe anything over 10% minoxidil can not be done in liquid. Hence liquid has more absorption rate than lotion or cream.

    I just make my own formula with minoxidil sulphate. Works great, and cheap too.

    Man I can vouch for dr lee’s 15% minoxidil. That thing really did work and it worked really well. It’s a shame there’s really nothing else like it. They shut down the only thing that really worked.

    Did you try to contact any of the current manufacturers of 15% minoxidil (MinoxidilMax for instance)? I'm sure there are interested parties out there who would at least like to give it a shot.

    Did you use Dr. Lee's Xandrox 15 in the past?

    I tried them all pretty much, and none of them gave me any results whatsoever. I have more success with regular 5% minoxidil than any of the current 15% options out there.
