Is kirkland minoxidil not safe for women?

Is kirkland minoxidil not safe for women?

Minoxidil for Women: While safe, over-the-counter women's topical Minoxidil is often tried with disappointing results because the traditional rogaine (minoxidil) or generic version can be messy, irritating to the skin and weak in terms of hair growth. Many patients find improved usability with compounded prescription formula 82m Minoxidil because it is stronger on the follicle and is easier to use (dries fast, less greasy, etc.). ...Read more

If I start rogaine, (minoxidil) do I need it forever? (50yo woman with parents with thin hair)

If I start rogaine, (minoxidil) do I need it forever? (50yo woman with parents with thin hair)

Define "forever.": If you stop using it, your hair will go back to the way it was before you started using it — but that doesn't mean you're stuck with it "forever." it means you need to keep using it until a better, more permanent hair loss treatment is invented. That could be next week or 10 years from now, but not "forever.". ...Read more

Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?

Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?

Probably not: Alrex (loteprednol) is extremely weak and you would not be likely to notice the difference. Pred Forte has a good deal of anti-inflammatory strength but is a cognate of a natural hormone so you would not lose response. The condition you are treating might get more severe however which you would interpret as the drop losing effectiveness. ...Read more
