Curly hair solutions?
Date: 2/11/2016
I was using this mintop product due to hairfall issue but due to its usage my hairs got curled. Is there any solution for this?


AskDocWeb: Sorry Rauf, this forum is about the side effects and effectiveness of minoxidil. You’ll have better luck using a search engine for curly hair solutions.

Maximum usage for good results?
Date: 2/13/2016
Hi sir I’m using mx10 from last 5 months hair falls fully controlled..but I’m not getting any new hair…what s that maximum usage for good results?


AskDocWeb: MX10 is not legal in the U.S.A.. Apparently it did not pass clinical trials here. The directions for the legal formulas of minoxidil say to apply it twice a day for maximum effectiveness.

Hello, I am 26yrs old female and used tugain 5 for 4days. After using it I’m having headache, nosebleed and vomiting. I have stopped using it but I’m scared. Please tell if it would do any harm. Would the side effects go?


AskDocWeb: We encourage you to consult with your doctor. A headache accompanied with nosebleed and vomiting could indicate an unrelated problem that may require medical treatment.

Switched to 10%
Date: 2/19/2016
I have been using minoxidil 5%, and my hair density has improved a little, i now have switched to 10%, is this ok? Plus my hair line has receded a bit, is their any product available for that?


AskDocWeb: In the USA our Food and Drug Administration approves of new drugs only after they go through clinical trials to prove they are safe to use. Formulas above 5% have not been proven safe for use.

As for a product that works on the hair line, to our knowledge, that product is yet to be discovered.

Slow hair growth
Date: 2/22/2016
Hi…my hair growth very slow as compare to others in starting days I use mx-10 but after I remove my all hair with blade then my hair growth becomes very slow..what can I do for regrowth of my hair without any side effects?


AskDocWeb: Unfortunately the products that are strong enough to have an effect on hair growth also have the possibility of causing side effects. Have you had a medical physical to make sure that you don’t have a vitamin deficiency?

Hi mintop 2% in how many days show results?


AskDocWeb: If it works for you then you may notice a decrease in hair loss after about two weeks. New hair growth may start showing within three to four months.

Can I stop this?

I am using Mintop Minoxide since last 01 year. i have get some hair back, now my question is whether i can stop this, and if i will stop mintop, whether the new hair will remain for forever or again it will fall, please reply me


AskDocWeb: If you meant minoxidil then it has to be used continuously in order to keep the results. Once it is discontinued, the new hair is expected to fall out over the following few months.

Using more than prescribed dose

Hello sir, i m using regaine 5% solution day and night. Bt i use to apply 2 ml in the morning nd 3 ml in the night before going to bed..

Plzzzz suggest me there is any problem with hair if i m using regaine more than prescribed dose..


AskDocWeb: Using more than the prescribed dose is called overdosing. Although an overdose of topical minoxidil is not expected to be dangerous it is not recommended. The full effects of an overdose are not known.

I am 23 year Girl i ave hair fall very badly is it safe for me to use the solution 2% because i had read all the reviews and the problem of hair growth on the other parts of the is mentioned in them so please tell me where i should use the product or not.


AskDocWeb: The Food and Drug Administration has determined that minoxidil 2% solution is safe for use by women. However, if you have excessive hair loss at age 23 then you may want to get a medical examination to determine the cause.
