Does Rogaine (minoxidil) help with hair loss?
Answer: Rogaine, a topical non-prescription agent, may help somewhat for some people (men or women). Only a 6-12 month trial will tell if it will help you. Rogaine may help halt the loss process or give you new hair, but this lasts only as long as the medicine continues to be used. Hair loss will begin again within a few months after minoxidil treatment is stopped. It is not near as effective as a hair transplant. Ask Dr. Halby about Formula 82M that contains 5% minoxidil and other medications that is more effective, less greasy, and less disruptive to your hair styling than Rogaine.
