Been reading thru all the RU threads, the current rage, but aren't seeing any before/after photos or any proof of any results. It sounds promising and I am interested in using it but I have seen other "great new treatments" come and go, usually with much great hoopla. When I first started reading these forums 5 yrs ago Revivogen was "the cure" but look at it now. Anybody remember Procede? Users post:

1. Duration of use

2. Any sides, shedding etc.

3. Dated before and after pictures

4. Misc. helpfull info

The stuffs been around for several months...somebody has got to have some verifiable results (or is it a scam??)

This is why we need blogs back on the forum. Much easier to keep track of everyone's progress. I miss the days of just clicking on someone's avatar to see their pics.

1. Duration of use

2 years and 2 months

2. Any sides, shedding etc.

no sides, no shedding

3. Dated before and after pictures

I was on DUT + flutamide before, switched to RU. Photos taken 2 years ago show no major changes or further loss..meaning that RU is maintening 100% of the hair !

4. Misc. helpfull info

RU Rocks ! the best topical hairloss prevention drug by far.
Won't regrow new terminal hair if you are already bald but will work better than FIN and DUT at preventing further loss at the temples/hairline because it also blocks testosterone.

And you can fine-tune the amount of the drug needed to achieve this, without suffering from systemic androgenic side effects.







-------------------------
FIN (1998 to 2004)
DUT (2004-2008)
DUT + Flutamide & Fluridil (2008)
DUT + RU (end 2008)
RU only (20mg to 400mg/day 2009-2011)
RU+Minox (2011- 2013)

At present:
-RU 20 mg/day (mixed to Neogenic)
-Neogenic (3ml)
-Minox foam

There are a couple of individuals who hijack every RU thread and I am on the fence, so I would be very, very interested in the results of the greater population. No conjecture, just quantifiable results.

How will you know if RU is working if you started minoxidil at the same time? Even your hair stays the same or improves you won't be able to say with any certainty that it was the RU.

Thx Beaner. I should add to the list

5. What other treatments are you using concurrent with RU


The true test would be using RU on it's own. BTW is RU either currently in or being considered for FDA trials?

To el_dut - thanks for the concise response

1. Duration of use I'm exactly 1 month into my RU experiment, or 30 days. I'm using 100mg in about 2ml of Everclear only. Nothing to report yet as far as results, I'm freakin praying this is going to work. I'm thinking I may use 150mg for month 2. I'll report back in a month. I'm currently using FE RU from the group buy. 2. Any sides, shedding etc. None yet. I don't know what 'shedding' means. When my hair falls out it's MPB. 3. Dated before and after pictures n/a 4. Misc. helpfull info Nothing really. 5. What other treatments are you using concurrent with RU I'm also on Avodart daily, Promox nightly and Nizoral. I apply RU in the AM. Nothing has ever worked for me, that's why I'm going the RU route. So if I actually see results, it's definately from the RU.

daMan I would add some PG or DMI to your everclear. It will evaporate to fast without it. You will lose alot of RU that gets left on your scalp that didnt get the chance to penetrate.

How much PG? A 2 ml bottle is tiny ... so it would only be like a drop or 2 of PG? Does that sound right? Where do I get PG from?

Terrible move to ditch minox or RU right now. Its not the RU or the minox its you being too impatient and paranoid to let the meds work. What have you given it a month? Why would you ditch minox now during or after a shed thats the worst part and not wait it out to get the benefit which I guarantee would have come. With that type of attitude and dedication no med is going to work for you its your head not the meds.

You think its a bunch of Hype but yet you chose it over a well known/proven effective treatment?
