Hello asulie. I can't see why you should have to? Unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from possibly using it. I would go by the maufacturers instructions. Regards, pledge

Rogaine is FDA approved from individuals 18-65 years of age. Any use of the drug after 65 is said to be an 'off label' use.

However, lots and lots of drugs are used off label. Anyone wishing to use minoxidil after 65 should speak to their physician. There are many health reasons why one should not use it - including heart disease, and blood pressure problems to name just a few.

Speak to your doctor.
