    Great product. Extremely high price. This company is raping the average american woman who most cannot afford this product. A tube lasts a year if used correctly. But, this company has the corner market on this product. No other company has this product and there is no safe generic form. I started using this 4 years ago and it works wonders. It was under 100 bucks at the time. It is now up to 20 ... Show Full Comment

My hair on my head started thinning so i thought it was the cream and stopped using it. It was not the cream i don't think so i will start again. Everyone ... Show Full Comment

    I take Paxil/Seroxat for depression. This cream worked, but it made me feel very depressed! I felt better the moment I stopped using it. Thought I'd better warn those on SSRIs
