Vaniqa worked for me! I have severe idiopathic hirsutism and this was hands down the only thing that very slowed down my hair growth. It was great! But unfortunately it is not covered on my insurance, which did not surprise me and it was NOT cheap! But Vaniqa has a few cheaper competitors so that is one reason for the price, plus it comes with very rare risk dealing with acne and pregnancy. Like with any medication, pharmacies and medical companies have to protect themselves from liabilities so the first thing they do is tax the hell out of their products!
