After 48 weeks
I want to know what do you mean by this statement ” the hair regrowth has not been shown to last longer than 48 weeks ” plz elaborate.


AskDocWeb: That is part of a quote from the United States Food and Drug Administration’s website. It comes from Drug Facts from the FDA. Here’s the entire quote: “Hair regrowth has not been shown to last longer than 48 weeks of continuous treatment in large clinical trials with minoxidil topical solution 5% for men.” That does not mean that it will stop working for everyone at 48 weeks. We take it to mean that after 48 weeks of continuous use, your results are unproven and can’t be predicted. You may or may not be satisfied with continuous use beyond 48 weeks.

Eyeball inflation
Am suffering from eyeball inflation due to use of mintop 2%, 1 ml, twice a day. have used it for approx 25 days and have stopped using it since a week now. very strongly recommend that you consult dermatologist before using it and pay attention to its side effects as well along with positive symptoms of hair growth and reduction in hair loss.


Minokem 5%
friends i want to thnks all of the team who make Minokem 5% its really a magic prodect and i was sued that b4 2 years. its really a wonderfull prodect i c there is no effect to use that prodect (Minokem 5% )


AskDocWeb: Minokem 5% contains Minoxidil 5%, Azelaic Acid 1.5%, Tretinoin 0.01%, and Alcohol 38%. These ingredients are known to produce side effects is some consumers so Minokem is NOT always free of side effects.

Regret using Rogaine
Why is it that if a person uses rogaine on only one area of scalp that whole head becomes dry. I used only on top and all of my hair is brittle dry after only two time using rogaine. Breaking off almost 4 inches of hair. Does rogaine cause permanent damage to hair and or hair follicles….I was shedding becausse of being hyperthyroid dr increase my dose and it was too high…I was not shedding prior to this. I got a bit frighten and thought I try rogaine much to my regret cause now I have a mess of dry hair. It looks like straw. Will this subside or is this permanent? Thanks,


AskDocWeb: Some people experience a change in hair texture while using Rogaine (minoxidil). This is not usually a cause for concern but if it is troubling for you, you can stop using the medication and visit a hairdresser. A hairdresser can change your hair texture with chemicals. Otherwise you might have to wait for it to grow out on its own.

Amazing results
I used mintop forte 5% and 10% for about 1 year. The results were very good concerning hair regrowth. Almost i recovered nearly 25k new hairs rest of 10k. Is it possible to recover remain 10k hairs? It is working very amazing but why people going for hair transplantation?


AskDocWeb: There is no way to predict how much hair you will recover. You appear to be one of the fortunate ones who respond very well to this product. Unfortunately not everyone has the same result so they resort to other options like hair transplants.

AskDocWeb: If you can define what you want to accomplish we might be able to tell you what others have done to successfully make that happen.

Change in hair color
I am a female using the 5% solution; the ends of my hair are yellowing, any advice on how to get this yellow out? Thanks,


AskDocWeb: Minoxidil is known to have an effect on hair color for some people. One solution would be to dye it but checking with a hair dresser that has experience with this would probably be a good idea.

AskDocWeb: We are not familiar with what you are taking to reduce side effects so have no comment about that. If the doctor you consulted for the prescription wasn’t a dermatologist then you may want to find one to get an overall treatment plan.

Ibuprofen overdose
The other day I took 40 200 mg ibuprofen pills, & now O’m having some of the side effects… Is there anyway I could not be effected by the 40 pills & be allright? because I’m not in pain 24/7 but when the headache/stomach pain starts, its VERY SEVERE. & my mom doesn’t understand how bad this is because on top of all this I have starting anorexia so I’ve been taking it on an empty stomache & my mom doesn’t know how many i took but I am in so much pain omg heLP. PLEASE.


AskDocWeb: Please call for emergency medical attention. A massive ibuprofen overdose may result in multisystem organ failure and death. For some people, just a few extra pills could result in nausea, vomiting stomach pain, headache, diarrhea, and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). In more serious cases of overdose there may be symptoms of drowsiness, excitation, disorientation, coma, acute renal failure, liver damage, and “metabolic acidosis,” wherein the body either produces too much acid or the kidney does not remove enough acid, resulting in rapid breathing, confusion and lethargy and, in extreme cases, shock or death. Please use a phone to call for help.

sir, i am using coverit5% for the last 2 months and still Continuing it. i regularly use it for twice a day as directed..earlier i found my hair stronger nd more healthy..but now i am not seeing any good result as i expected..i had to loose my hair in the rainy season at most. I am now 28 yrs of age and also having Constipation which suffered me before using the product. now a days i have minimized the problem but yet to solve it totally. so i am seeking for some helpful tips 4m you to keep myself out of constipation. and advise me how long should i continue the product.i do yoga by rubbing my nails with one another of two hands specially at bed time. THANK YOU.


AskDocWeb: Constipation is not listed as one of the possible side effects of Coverit so you might want to examine your diet as well as the amount of water you consume daily. Not drinking enough water is a common cause of constipation. If constipation persists see a doctor, it could also be a symptom of an underlying condition.
