It works: It works but only as long as you are using it.

Alternatives Exist!: Using OTC (over-the-counter) rogaine (minoxidil) can be effective, but many patients find it to be too weak, too messy & irritating to the scalp. For those patients, we often prescribe Compounded Minoxidil Formula 82M. It reduces the side effects of the off-the-shelf product (rogaine (minoxidil)) and therefore offers better ease of use and results.
