I recently went to a consultation with a hair loss doctor in Toronto, and ended up buying a "new" scalp lotion that the doctor had brought back from Italy after a recent conference. Apparently it is commonly prescribed there for female pattern hair loss, but this doctor has only been prescribing it for a month, so has yet to see what sort of results it may get for his patients. I've been unable to find much information about it on the Internet, other than one Italian research paper describing the rationale behind it, probably because most of the information is in Italian. The bottle says the ingredients are: Estrone 0.05% HC 0.05% Transcutol 3% IN D-ALC I'm still sitting here looking at the bottle, wondering if I should be a guineau pig. Anyone out there have any experience with this stuff? Anyone know of other doctors in North America who are prescribing it?
