What is ROGAINE®?

ROGAINE® is a solution that is to be used only on your scalp. It contains the active ingredient minoxidil in a mixture of alcohol, propylene glycol and water.

What ROGAINE® is used for & how it works

HAIR LOSS TREATMENTROGAINE® is used as a long-term treatment for common baldness. ROGAINE® is not a cure for baldness, but in some men and women it can improve hair regrowth. However, exactly how ROGAINE® works is not known

How effective is ROGAINE® in regrowing hair?

It is important for you to understand that ROGAINE® does not work well in all people, and how well it works depends on a number of things. Your pharmacist or doctor can best decide whether you are likely to respond to treatment with ROGAINE®. You should discuss what results you might expect from treatment with ROGAINE® with your pharmacist or doctor. If you respond to treatment with ROGAINE®, your initial regrowth may at first be soft, downy hair ("vellus"), and may hardly be visible. After further treatment it is likely that your hair regrowth will change and become the same colour and thickness as the rest of your hair. Patients using ROGAINE® have reported that the loss of hair is slowed during treatment. Treatment with ROGAINE® is a long-term therapy for hair regrowth. If you respond to treatment, you will need to continue to use ROGAINE® in order to keep the new hair and also to stop additional hair loss. If you stop using ROGAINE® you will mprobably lose the hair that has already grown back. This hair loss will occur about three to four months after stopping treatment. The balding process will also start again.

What should I tell my pharmacist or doctor before using  ROGAINE®?
