What’s your opinion on the new Xandrox15 Plus product which includes 0.01% finasteride?
Does finasteride work as part of a topical solution? Does it still carry the same risks ie erectile dysfunction, male breast etc…
- minoxidil, which is known to be absorbed through the skin
- finasteride, which is not known to be absorbed through the skin at the very low dose they utilize
They say it contains, “15% minoxidil, 5% azelaic acid and 0.1% finasteride by weight. Xandrox15-PLUS is available in 125mL bottles. Each mL of Xandrox15-PLUS contains 150mg of minoxidil, 50mg of azelaic acid and 1mg finasteride.”
You would have to take the word of the seller here, something that I generally do not like to do as we do not like becoming a third party endorsement. The seller does warn about sexual side effects of this product and worse, the finasteride is a controlled drug that requires a doctor’s prescription. So it seems that the company has violated some FDA issues including labeling, safety, and effectiveness proofs, and the ability to sell this over the counter. Even if the seller is a doctor, I believe that does not allow the seller to make unsubstantiated medical claims on safety and effectiveness, particularly with regard to the topical Propecia.
