How to add Spiro to Minoxidil 5% Topical


#1

I’ve read that instead of applying just standard 5% Minoxidil, that applying a Minoxidil/Spiro topical mix is better.

Is it possible to just cruch some spiro tablets using a pestle and mortar and then simply pour the spiro dust into 5% Minox, and shake before applying?

Would this work? How many 100mg Spiro tablets should I crush to add to a standard 60ml bottle of Minoxidil? Thanks! :slight_smile:

Yes it dissolves very well in minox and stinks like hell :slight_smile:

What you must do is make a 40ml solution of 80% ethanol 90, 20% propylen glycol (no water: spiro doesn’t dissolve in water) and throw 8 100 mg spiro tablets to have a 2% solution. Spiro is said to dissolve at 2% in alcohol but you can try more. Then filter the filler out with coffee filters. In the evening, 1 ml of spiro solution 1/2 hour after applying minox.
Spiro did nothing for me in the best of case (rather made things worse).

Snow, spiro is very unstable. You need to go with Dr. Lees version at www.minoxidil.com IMO
