I suggest you take liquid sublingual weekly for 3 months then bi weekly thereafter. Its important to check a level after you cut back to twice a month.

This would not be a great risk skin cancer. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

None of them: If this question is driven by a desire to avoid or treat male pattern baldness, you are also badly misinformed about the nature of the process.
