I made a thread regarding this a while ago and received no replies. Not many people seem to know what it is. Apparently it is not regulated and/or has to be mixed at home or something like that?

Yeah it seems like ppl here not very aware of it, but on other forums there is a big hype and so many ppl talking about it.
You can either buy it as a powder and do the mixing yourself or you can buy it pre-mixed (work for 6 months). I still didn't buy any and not sure if im gonna buy or not but to me it sounds better than fin, e-quol, and other oral pills. At least it's topical.

Hi RCWest,

This is off-topic, but I was just looking through your signature and am curious about your hair loss routine. So, you take spiro orally? Do you experience side effects?

I would think that with all those pills, your sex drive must not be that great. Do you take anything to offset the effect of those meds on your sex drive?

Thanks,
Ben

I think i will give this a try and will let everybody know how it works for me.
Apparently it's working for many ppl and it sounds safer than s-equol or other pills.

Can you purchase it pre-mixed? It does have potential. One big case I saw of it had the individual use it on and off along with Proprecia and Minox but he experienced severe shedding sporadically. Also had severe acne which could have been from the Proprecia or RU or just genetics. For a topical solution however it does seem to have the most potential.

yes, you can get it pre-mixed (good for 6 months).
based on my reading, RU does not cause shedding, in fact if it works for you then your shedding will be stopped in like couple of days.

Wow. Very interesting. Are there any long term cases where significant growth has occurred? The cases I saw only resulted in mainly baby hair growth but I haven't looked extensively at it.
