Hi i am 23 year old male.I had used minoxidil 5 % for two months. I experienced hair growth, but I had to stop because of facial growth under my eyes on my forehead and my beard got much more thicker. Now, after three months hair under my eyes or my forehead fall out, but my beard is still much more thicker than it was before using minoxidil. Are there any chances that my beard will be (after some time) like it was before using. I don't care for time I'm prepared to wait two years but I need to know that things are going to be like they were. Thank you for answer and God bless you
Hi, this is a quote taken from the Drugs.com website about Minoxidil use & side effects: "This medicine causes a temporary increase in hair growth in most people. Hair may grow longer and darker in both men and women. This may first be noticed on the face several weeks after you start taking minoxidil. Later, new hair growth may be noticed on the back, arms, legs, and scalp. Talk to your doctor about shaving or using a hair remover during this time. After treatment with minoxidil has ended, the hair will stop growing, although it may take several months for the new hair growth to go away".
