What is Regaine?
Regaine containing the active ingredient minoxidil is considered a vasodilator type of hair stimulant. The medication is used to slow balding and stimulate hair growth in men with male pattern baldness. The medication will not work for everyone but younger men with a short history of hair loss or have a small area of baldness are known to have better results when taking the medication.
How is Regaine used?
Regaine is usually applied topically to the scalp twice per day or as directed by a doctor. The solution should be applied to a clean and dry scalp area to be effective. Contact a doctor for the best application method and correct dosage as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the medication. The full effects of the treatment may not be visible or felt until after 3 to 4 months of treatment. Do not stop the medication without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the medication may cause the regrown hair to disappear over a period of 3 to 4 months.
Patients using Regaine may cause unwanted side effects such as:
- Chest pain
- Irregular heartbeat
- Difficulty breathing
- Weight gain
- Dry, scaling or flaking scalp
- Burning, stinging or redness at application site
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
The medication should not be taken in patients under 18 years of age.
