Discontinued and hair is starting to fall again
Date: 9/19/2016
I had been using mintop 2 %. But discontinued for 3 months now my hair is starting to fall again. Will continuing the use solve the problem of hairloss?


AskDocWeb: That seems to be the idea behind this treatment. It works only if you continue using it. If you stop then hair starts falling again.

Tugain 5% foam
Date: 9/19/2016
Hi, I am a boy of 24 Years old. I am using tugain 5% foam. I have achived some results. Am greatly satisfied with that and I want to stop using it as it is difficult for me to continue because of its side effects.. I know thath sudden stoping will cause the new hair to fall. I want to know will it cause my other hair ( Already in head before using tugain) Will fall.. Or will the hair that had grown after using tugain will only be affected?. And want to knw. Will it again gives the result after using it months later


AskDocWeb: To our knowledge it has no effect on hair that was already on the head before treatment. Stopping and starting again is not recommended as it needs continuous use for best effect.

5% solution
Date: 9/23/2016
I used the 5% solution for a month twice daily and i have noticed an increasesd hair on my sclap…. but my face is full with hair now..even under the eyes and cheeks and a female…plz tell me if i stop using it will my facial hair go back or will i have to go for laser treatment?


AskDocWeb: In the USA the 5% solution is approved only for men because of the growth of unwanted facial hair and body hair on women who used this product. Only the 2% solution is approved for use by women here. Because of this there is a lack of clinical research about situations such as yours and what might happen once the product is discontinued.

Proper treatment?
Date: 9/30/2016
I take finax 1mg and using morr f 5% with 1mg fins.and time in a now i started..So i seen any problem in future. About that….but i think its not over doss of finestride couse. Morff 5% receipts says use twice a day means finestride use two time. But i take 1 pil oraly or use morr f only 1 time….

AskDocWeb: If we understand correctly, it sounds like you need to talk to your doctor about the proper amount to use on a daily basis.

Natural methods?
Date: 10/13/2016
can i use natural method like rosemary oil or any other natural methods while using minoxidil? will it cause any side effects or reaction?


AskDocWeb: There are not reports of any problems with using natural method along with minoxidil as long as the minoxidial is allowed to dry completely before using the oil.

Facial hairs
Date: 10/13/2016
I m 21 years old and I used Minoxidil 5% solution(hair for you) for about two and a half months.I noticed small hairs coming in my scalp but there was no stoppage in my hair fall. I also noticed hairs in my face(forehead, cheeks, etc). I am really tensed for how to get rid of my facial hairs totally. I stopped using it just before two days. Please suggest me how can I get rid of my facial hairs. Will it go permanently within some days or I need to do something like threading or some natural remedies? Please help me..


AskDocWeb: Minoxidil solutions stronger than 2% are NOT recommended for women because of reports like yours. Once minoxidil is discontinued the unwanted hair growth typically slows to a stop and the extra hair gradually fades away over several months time. If you want to speed this process you might want to check out a hair growth inhibitor such as Vaniqa.

Floral smell
Date: 10/13/2016
I m using minokem from 11 month … There was a strong smell.. Now n when i bought new. It has got a floral smell.. Wl it effect my hairs ?


AskDocWeb: If the smell of the product has changed then you may want to check the expiration date. Like most drugs it is good for only a limited amount of time.

How time hold on hair? example 10minute or 15minutes


AskDocWeb: The directions say to leave it on until it dries completely.

Daily hair fall
Date: 10/24/2016
Hello sir, i m using regaine 5% since past 15 months on regular basis but hair falling is not come down. Almost 20-25 hair fall out per day from my sclup. Please suggest how can i stop hair fall.


AskDocWeb: If you are losing only 25 hairs per day then you are losing much less hair than the average person. We know of no way to stop hair loss that most healthcare professionals would consider to be normal.

After stopping minscalp
Date: 10/27/2016
Hello Sir, ¬†Recently i had a typhod fever on jan2016,¬† Before to that, i started using Minscalp gel 5% for more than 6 month, just now i have stopped using minscalp gel..

(or) really is there any treatment can help me to regrow my hair…Pls let me know your reply…


AskDocWeb: Aside from a hair transplant, none of the treatments for hair loss provide a permanent solution or cure. In order to keep the benefits the product must be used continuously.
