Yes: Rogaine (minoxidil) is an anti-andrigen agent while biotin is a vitamin. Different methods of action and affect. Biotin supplements what may be a deficiency in the diet allowing for a stronger hair follicle. The rogaine (minoxidil) inhibits the negative effects of testosterone on the hair follicle.
