Kirkland Minoxidil 5% – Supply of 6 months

In this article I talk about a supply of 6 months of Kirkland Minoxidil 5%, acquired on eBay, shop genericgiantstore.

Finasteride and Minoxidil are probably the most used worldwide for the treatment of male pattern baldness.

Finasteride has some options in the Brazilian market, different laboratories, generic, etc. On the other hand, as far as i know, Minoxidil is available only in a medicine in Brazil: the Aloxidil, which has high cost, currently around R$ 130,00 for a package with 50 ml, enough for only one month of treatment.

Although the compounding pharmacies are an option, many people prefer to buy this medicine from large laboratories, for a supposedly more rigorous quality control, is for a specific vehicle, with less alcohol, or foam, etc.

But if in Brazil we have a unique and expensive option for the Minoxidil, in civilization the reality is quite different. In the US there are several laboratories that manufacture the minoxidil, with major and minor prices, with packages for major and minor treatments, with liquid or foam vehicle. Anyway there are many options.

Kirkland Signature is a product line of large retail network Costco, the second largest retail chain in the world, After the Walmart. And Kirkland Minoxidil 5% It is a product of the Costco sell with your own label.

The treatment for 6 months, containing 6 bottles of 60 ml, cost me only $ $27,47 com mais US$ 14,50 de frete. Ou seja, pelo preço que eu pagaria por apenas um mês de tratamento com o Aloxidil no Brasil, comprei o tratamento de 6 meses do Kirkland Minoxidil 5%. I received the package in just 10 days and without taxes.

The package that I bought comes with the 6 bottles and an eyedropper to application. The vehicle is liquid, contains alcohol but it seems to be very little, There's no alcohol and is somewhat oily. Leaves hair somewhat stuck, so I prefer to use before sleep or shortly after washing. Another alternative is to brush soon after application and again after the hair dry.

The product came in the original packaging, just a little beat up by the transport, but sealed and with all 6 intact vials. The expiration date is far away, only July 2018.

Opted for the treatment of 6 months because that is the least that should use to start seeing any results, and also to take advantage of the freight value. For those who may prefer, There are many other options, like treatment of 12 months with free shipping, the version that uses foam as a vehicle, or even the Rogaine, Minoxidil Johnson & Johnson, for those who prefer a known brand in the field of medicines.

In my next purchase I might try the version in foam, or maybe the Rogaine, to see if the application becomes easier.

I have not found any indication that the product could not be legit. The seller is also quite recommended with 99,6% of positive recommendations.

The Kirkland Minoxidil 5% is FDA approved, American organ which is equivalent to the Anvisa in Brazil. If what I saw in Shopping Club Dallas It's true, they are pretty strict on approval of medicines. I also know that there are drugs in common use in Brazil, as the dipyrone, that are banned by the FDA because of side effects. Including always take my good old Selling point Brazil's when I travel to other countries. This has already saved me from a terrible toothache during a trip to the United States.

Thus, I'm quiet to use a medication approved by the FDA, mainly being the minoxidil that is also approved in Brazil and that is already used for decades to treat baldness. I had no side effects.

Apparently Kirkland Minoxidil 5% you don't need a prescription to be purchased in the USA. The packaging says only that one should see a doctor if appears some of the side effects. Anyway, in Brazil the Aloxidil is sold under medical prescription, then I recommend talking with your doctor before use and be aware of the possible side effects.

There are several reports of people using Minoxidil 5% to grow a beard, but there is also no indication for this use in packaging. On the contrary, There is a warning to you is not used in other parts of the body. Women should not use the Minoxidil 5%.

    Hello, Skooter.
    For those who make use of Finasteride 1 mg(take about 20 years), not necessary the use of Minoxidil.
    Minoxidil é um produto que existe desde o começo do anos 80. Finasterida, from 1997 and, por ser de uso interno e mais ‘moderno’, é mais eficaz. Mas tem que usar para todo sempre 😀

    Sobre a Dipirona, ela é proibida nos EUA na verdade por questões comerciais(cito a porcaria do Paracetamol, que ‘força’ that).

      Olá Fernando,

      I also take finasteride for over 10 years and she has been effective. Não perdi mais cabelos definitivamente depois que comecei a toma-la e ainda recuperei alguns recém-perdidos. Pena não ter começado alguns anos antes, pois assim ainda teria tantos fios quanto na adolescência.
      Even taking finasteride a dermatologist often spent other products, including several shampoos and lotions, even got around to use Minoxidil. Because they have different mechanisms of action, I believe they can complement. At least in some cases, Since each person responds differently to each drug. Some people have good results only with finasteride, as was my case for at least 5 years in which I ended up giving up the rest and getting alone with her. But there are cases of people combining a series of medicines (with or without medical advice), even people wearing (and even some doctors prescribing) the Dutasteride, which is more effective than finasteride, but that, as far as i know, It is not yet released for this purpose or by Anvisa, not by the FDA.

      Furthermore, There is also the issue of the lack of studies on the long-term effects of Finasteride, Since it's a relatively new drug. So it's nice to have alternatives, though less effective or more disadvantages of applying.

    Here there is also the Pant (Minoxidil 5%) Achè lab, bought in http://www.farmagora.com.br with free shipping, by R$60,53 on 3 x without extra charges. (http://www.farmagora.com.br/parceiro/20/produto/pant+solucao+capilar+50ml/1000008475).

    As for Finasteride, used without problem over some years, However I stopped on the recommendation of a doctor, because there are cases of sexual dysfunction after terminated treatment (https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finasterida).

    1. 2.1
      FERNANDO NASSAR

      Renato, the known cases are the lack of libido, and no sexual dysfunction. This lack of libido is reversed with discontinuation of use.

      1. 2.1.1
        Skooter

        In fact the possible side effects so commented out are three: decreased libido, erectile dysfunction and decreased volume of ejaculate. Most of the bulls only cites these possible effects without going into details about the studies. But the fact is that less than 2% of men who participate in the studies report such problems, and the percentages are similar for men taking finasteride and men taking the placebo, in double-blind tests. Statistically the difference is negligible. With this data I would bet that finasteride does not cause any of this. In a group of 100 men, It seems to me normal that at least 2 of them some of these three problems within one year. Suddenly the guy was tired, or had had too much to drink, and there blaming the Finasteride. I think it's funny how a lot of people afraid to take this medicine at the same time smoke (chance very mair had some of these problems) and/or use medicines (or drugs) whose side effects are much more severe, appear more often and don't go away with the discontinuance of the use.

    Oi Skooter. I have a doubt, I don't know if you can enlighten me. You bought a box that is for treatment of 6 months. There is the possibility to buy 4 boxes for example? I 2 children and the two would like to use the treatment for at least 1 year. I wonder if there would be any problem in customs of Brazil?

    1. 3.1
      Skooter

      Hello Wilma,
      Yes, You can buy 4 boxes and take advantage of the same shipping.
      As for customs can't tell. I think a larger package has more chances to be taxed.
      I also have doubts whether or not the risk of the package being routed to the Anvisa, case to be opened by Customs.
