Hey gang!

After 5 months of adding 10 mg of Melatonin and 250 mg of L-Carnitine Tartrate

(both made by "NOW" from Amazon.com) to my Lipogaine, I can confirm that it definitely

helps. I've been using minox ever since it came out. I'm 57 years old. Adding these

ingredients has made my hair slightly thicker, healthier and the weak looking hairs in

my crown now look more like regular hair. I have to give credit to this forum for the

exchange of info otherwise I would have never thought of combining these with

minox. Some info that I came across also lends credence to the above - "Bernstein

Medical Center for Hair Restoration" cites 4 different study designs that observed

daily application of melatonin solution reduced hairloss and in some cases caused

new hair growth. In one of the studies, researchers used a Tricho Scan to measure

hairloss. The average increase in density was 29% after 3 months and 41% at 6

months. Regarding Carnitine - German researchers applied a 2% solution of

L-Carnitine Tartrate and after 6 months the density had increased by 15%. Both of

those items are pretty cheap. Well worth adding them to your regimen. Something

else that occurred - I've been growing a goatee and I've NEVER been able to grow

hairs below my lip very well. Now virtually that whole area is growing in with thick

healthy hair. Cheers!

Interesting post.

You say other posters here have discussed this because I must have missed it
completely.

!0 mgs of melatonin isn't much. Are you squeezing it out of capsules into
your minox or crushing up solid pills?

How many times a day are you applying this mixture?

I've been adding pumpkin seed oil and saw palmetto to my minox along
with 33 10mg crushed minoxidil pills and I have had some slight regrowth.

Now sure it's worth all the trouble, though.

Are you applying your mixture to your goatee as well as your scalp?

There was a formula called minsaw M which had melatonin in it years ago and it did indeed work. Take it at night of course because it will make you sleepy.

There could be more advances in treatments if the government would get out of the way!!

SSBob, I buy the capsules and then pull them apart and add them to the minox. I only

apply it once, at night. No, I don't apply it to my goatee. I'll try adding more Melatonin

on my next batch. Based on previous experience with adding stuff to minox, I know

there comes a point where too much stuff leaves a white residue ... which can be

embarrassing. Ha!

I looked online and Melatonin is available as a liquid, which would make
it much easier to mix up. It comes in a dropper bottle

The 5 mg capsules I use for sleep aren't very big and there isn't
much inside them, although they're great as a sleep aide.

Adding some pumpkin seed oil to the mix eliminates that white powder
and flakey buildup on the scalp.

I doubled the melatonin in my new batch to 20 mg and it's leaving a slight whitish residue, although it may be only noticeable to me ...

Seems like I looked up liquid melatonin before and couldn't find any without added flavors, additives etc. I'll look some more.

taco, I add 20 mg to a 2 oz bottle of Lipogaine which contains 5% minox. I buy the "sensitive" kind because it's easier on my scalp. Amazon used to sell Lipogaine but stopped so now I buy it direct from Lipogaine.com for about $30. The regular kind is about $25.

The use of melatonin for hair loss has been known for quite some time. When it first started appearing on the forums it was like any fad, people tried it for a while and then it faded. Glad to see it's helping you somewhat. Taking it at night how much do you think is getting absorbed into the body and does it make you sleepy or sleep better?

I would imagine that some of it is being absorbed into the body based on results from my head and facial hair but I can't say that it really helps me sleep more soundly. Only because I've always been a sound sleeper. For those who have never tried using a sleep mask. Try it!! MUCH better quality of sleep ...
