Does Costco Canada sell Kirkland Signature Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is the main chemical compound in Rogaine. I know that Costco sells Kirkland Signature Minoxidil in the US at a very low price. But the Costco near my home only sells Rogaine, although at a lower price than other drug stores. I wanted to ask if anyone knows whether KS Minoxidil is sold in Canada at all, so I can look for it in their other nearby stores.

Welcome to the balding club lol no they only carry rogaine or another brand (I forget the name but I'm using it right now for the last 6 months, noticeable improvements but its a 2% solution compared to the Kirkland or Rogaine at 5%) if you want the Kirkland branded one a po box across the border is the only way (from costco.com)

Do you have any recommendations for the PO Box method?

Google it. It works for 60% of people (I started using it as a precaution my hair just started thinning and my younger brother is basically bald) it works well but you have to continue to use it.

Aren't you concerned about side affects from chemicals in your scalp?

Finasteride is clinically more effective, sold as Propecia 1mg. Or get Proscar, same drug (finasteride) used for BPH at 5mg, lower cost and cut it into quarters.
For some, the adverse effects aren't worth it, and its effectiveness also depends how advanced your MPB.

Personally if I get noticeable MBP, I'll just buzz my head like I had it high school.

The active ingredient was originally used to treat high blood pressure (which is how they found it helps hair growth) I would read up on it if you are considering it and decide if it's something you're comfortable with. I've seen friends with good results.

Not close enough. But more importantly, I would need a visa to enter US. That rules out the pick-up options for me. Do you know of any good services which could ship the parcels to Canada at a reasonable rate?

What do rich people do (like Lebron James and others)? Hair transplant? How much?
