damn 15% thats alot...

the one im using is 5% and it was labeled as "extra strenght"...15% should be labeled as super super strong...

it sounds promising but it also sounds something new as i never heard of it before, and i dont want to be a "test" so i wont try it out first.

like all drugs, it depends on the dose level, with different dose levels doing something different.
for example
1 mg finasteride blocks dht and 5mg is for prostate

1 capsule of tyenol is for headaches and alot more can cause death.

isint a side effect of minoxidil like increased blood pressure and heart rate? (not sure where i got this info from, i just remember people talking about it), so wouldnt it cause more people to feel increased blood pressure and heart rate with higher dosage?

15% minoxidil can draw a large crowd if you only had to use it once a day as upposed to the twice a day 5%

Too much minoxidil will cause a heart attack.

I can't say anything specific about 15% minoxodil...but I can only imagine how much of a scalp irritant that may be.

My advice to anyone considering it...

Is make sure that 5% doesn't irritate your scalp or cause any other side effects.

Read the literature for normal dosage. Some of the side effects are chest pains, blood pressure increases or decreases, heart palpitations, pulse rate increases or decreases, etc.

One of the side effects of absorbing too much minoxidil is an increased frequency of angina or new onset of angina.

It doesn't take a genious to realize that the higher dosage you continuously take, the more likely and the more severe the negative effects are going to be. At some level you are eventually going to kill yourself.

Is 15% legally available? Is there any site which will ship the medicine?
Is it safe?!
