How effective is Rogaine?
Rogaine has been found to be an effective drug for promoting new hair growth and slow further hair loss in both men and women suffering from pattern hair loss. While the actual scientific reasons behind Rogaine's effectiveness require further study, many people have found it to be a safe and relatively easy method of addressing their hair loss.
Studies have shown that more than half of men who used the 5% solution saw improvement in the frontal scalp region over 48 weeks, while more than 40% saw improvements using the 2% solution.
The active ingredient in Rogaine is the drug minoxidil, which is a sold in various strengths depending on the country and is also found in the product "Rogaine". In the United States, the 2% and 5% solutions are available over the counter for both men and women.
Used topically, Rogaine in its spray or mousse formats must be applied to the scalp twice-a-day for the rest of the individual's life in order to continue seeing results. It should be noted that it is not effective on the hairline. Many hair transplant doctors prescribe the use of Rogaine to their patients to minimize the shedding that is often seen after the procedure.
Side effects of using Rogaine include itchy scalp, which is the most common complaint of users. Other possible side effects are an initial increase of hair loss, swelling of the face and extremities, lightheadedness, cardiac lesions, rapid and irregular heartbeat, and other heart irregularities. Patients should read the label or consult their doctor for a full side effect profile before using Rogaine.
