    What do my lab test report indicate?

Posted on Mon, 7 Aug 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hi,

I was using Chymotra Minoxidil 5 % with Absolute Alochol 40% v/v. I ordered another Chymotra online when the earlier one got over. But I noticed a difference in the two packs. The new Chymotra Minoxidil has the same Minoxidil content but it's In-adhesive Base . I don't know how alochol base and Adhesive Base are different but I am wondering is the new Pack real or fake.
Please suhhest.

Brief Answer:
Available in both preparations

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that Minoxidil is available both in alcohol base and in-adhesive base. These are simply two different types of preparations. This alone does not indicate whether the item is genuine or fake. I think that you can use it and see if you are getting the desired action. I hope that there would be no difference in output.

Let me know if I could help further.
