I have hair loss, and I've been using Minoxidil twice a day. Someone recommended me Lambdapil (Melatonin) topical solution. Can/Should I use both?

First get seen by Dr: You should first see a doctor (dermatologist maybe) to see if there may be a reversible cause to your hair loss. If it is simply an issue of male pattern baldness then, there is no literature to support the use of creams, solutions, etc. You could consider hair transplantation techniques but those can be costly without guarantee of results either. First get the cause though before anything else. ...Read more

I am 5w3d preg. Been using crinone (progesterone gel) for 6 days, due to low progesterone. Should i be "cleaning" myself regularly while using, or let it clean naturally?

I am 5w3d preg. Been using crinone (progesterone gel) for 6 days, due to low progesterone. Should i be "cleaning" myself regularly while using, or let it clean naturally?

Talk w/doctor: Hopefully you're only using products ordered and monitored by your doctor. Don't endanger your pregnancy. The only thing you need to "clean" is your hair, skin and mind. Your body keeps the rest of you clean, don't know what you're referring to, but leave it alone. Can't help and could hurt. ...Read more

Weight gain is not reported as a side effect of Minoxidil in www.Epocrates.Com so be sure to focus on nutrition & physical activity as therapeutic options for your weight gain. You might want to check w/your family doc regarding your thyroid (although this is rarely explanation). ...Read more

Wait on it: You'd do better to wait six months. Your skin will be less dry and less likely to get torn. You're going to look great simply because your acne will soon be just an unpleasant memory. Why not use this time to see how yourself and others like your natural hair? ...Read more

I use Minoxidil 5% for my hairloss. If I stop it will I loose my hair again?

I use Minoxidil 5% for my hairloss. If I stop it will I loose my hair again?

Don't stop minoxidil: If you're prone to hair loss, stopping ANY preventative medical treatment (finasteride, minox, laser therapy, etc.) will certainly cause you to lose hair. Twice daily Minoxidil is stimulating follicles to grow thicker, healthier hair & fighting male pattern hair loss. If you stop the treatment, you'll lose all the benefit. If you're having trouble w/ greasy over-the-counter minox, try Formula 82M. ...Read more
