For Alopecia "Product works for me, was very dubious but decided to try it as a last ditch attempt before an FUE hair transplant. Don't need a transplant now I am thrilled to say! New fine hairs started to grow after five weeks and didn't notice any shedding at all. Best to keep track with a shaving mirror. Now at three months and my old hairline is returning which is almost beyond belief! My only fear is that this progress will slow but I am keeping fingers crossed, things are looking good and the fine hairs are thickening and darkening."
For Alopecia "This Rogaine Men's Extra Strength medication caused my face to swell and my hands / feet. It causes excruciating headaches and makes your head fill as though it weights 5 pounds. It causes irregular and rapid heartbeats, some nausea/vomiting. In the area applied it takes the color from your hair and leaves it "gray". It causes you to feel dizzy , like faint and fatigue with cold chill intermittently. Maybe taking a diuretic would have eliminated the discomfort and unpleasantness of facial swelling and feeling heavy headed."
"After three days use I started having large red bumps on the back of my hair line and on my neck. Also chest pain the three nights. I stopped using it then, hopefully it will be corrected in a few days. "
For Alopecia "This was recommended by my dermatologist. I've been using rogaine for about ten years, I think I am getting results so l have stuck with it for so long. Although it improves the health of the thinning areas and may even slow down the process of male pattern baldness, l don't see any hard evidence that dead hair follicles are revitalized. In fact it is my belief that once a hair follicle dies, like anything else, it dies. l'm 59, and l believe my hair still looks good feels good and the balding process has been at the very least slowed to an acceptable level."
For Alopecia "This drug ruined my life. The first time I applied Kirkland 5% to my head, within minutes I became extremely lightheaded, with blurry vision. This persisted for a week before I tried applying some more (maybe it wasn't minoxidil)? The 2nd application resulted in even more dizziness, and after my 3rd and 4th application, I began having severe multi-day headaches. Suffice to say I completely stopped, but 8 months later and I am still suffering from an annihilated vestibular system causing major balance issues and constant dizziness and fatigue."
