    My dr gave me a sample bottle to use and it worked after the first treatment. When I got the Rx filled, it didn't seem to be as effective, but it still worked. I've been using it for almost 2 years. It is greasy so don't overapply, but I only have to shampoo 2xs to wash it out.

    Only used once due to the oil slick experience. I washed my hair with shampoo & with Dawn 6x and still had traces of oily hair! Worst part...I spent an extra hour on washing the greasy stuff out of my hair which made me late for work. Who has time for this ordeal? Not me!!!!

I tried applying small amounts at a time but soon my entire hair was also covered in medication. Trying to wash the medicine off my hair the next morning took several rinses which could be painful to someone with severe psor ... Show Full Comment
