I have a clearly noticeable receding hair line. Should I used rogaine (minoxidil) or will it have side effects?
Treat your hairline: Even though rogaine/minoxidil is not FDA-approved for hair regrowth in the hairline, it's possible to see some improvement. The improvement you get will depend on the amount of weak hair in the area. Dead is dead, gone is gone. But if the hair follicle is alive, there's a chance minox, laser or prp will help. Otherwise, a transplant is your only option. Try Formula 82M minox to avoid side effects. ...Read more

Hair loss at an early age can be devastating to your self-esteem, and the longer you wait the harder it is to gain the lost hair back.

Probably not: Probably not the cause of your mental condition. OK to use at same time as topical minoxidil.

Started minoxidil 5% recently and experienced chest tightness. EKG test came back perfect. How can I use Minoxidil without chest side effects?
It would be REALLY: Unusual to have chest tightness as a side effect of topical minoxidil, suggested by the 5% label. It is, however, a strong blood vessel dilator, and when taken orally can affect the heart/heart rate. You may be an unusually sensitive reactor. All I can say is...if you are sure the chest pain is associated with application of topical Minoxidil (try, stop, etc), then you must avoid the minoxidil. ...Read more

Is minoxidil& finasteride is the best solution for pattern hair loss (genetic). How to avoid the side effects such as erectile dysfunction? TQ docs ;)
The only medical treatments that are proven effective for baldness (other than hair transplantation) are Finasteride oral pills and Minoxidil topical. It is less expensive to purchase the 5mg pill (Proscar) and split the pills in 4 (use a pill splitter). Neither treatment causes a higher incidence of erectile dysfunction.

See a dermatologist for a clear diagnosis as many conditions can mimic female pattern hair loss. You may need additional tests. Unfortunately oral meds are out for women. Topically the most cost effective is rogaine (minoxidil).
Latisse might work as well but is cost prohibitive. New topicals are coming. Led lights and laser are not proven to be effective. ...Read more
