How to stop using Avogain 5%
Date: 12/21/2013
Hi, How can I stop using avogain 5%? Male- 45. Years I am using this drug for 5 months, it is working good.


AskDocWeb: You need to understand that you are using a hair growth stimulant. When you stop stimulating your hair follicles, the new hair that was stimulated to grow will fall out gradually over the following few months. Sorry, but there is no way around that. If you want to keep the benefits you have to keep using the product.

Tugain Gel 5
Date: 12/22/2013
I am using Tugain Gel 5 for past one week. It is prescribed by a dermatologist. I am finding some eye irritation and head ache by using it.(1) I would like to know whether there is any side effects by using Tugain gel. ( 2 ) If I discontinue Tugain gel after one month or so will the new hair that has developed will fall again?


AskDocWeb: In general yes, new hair that was stimulated to grow will fall out. However, using it for only one month is not likely to produce any visible hair growth.

Itching for dandruff
Date: 1/4/2014
Hello sir.. I’m 25 yr of age from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I’m having the problem of hair fall from front head & both corners of head & some hair falls from the centre portion so finally I reached to dermitalogist on CMC vellore, & she advised me to use 1st a darma roller ZGTS 0.5 then one cleaning wash (sterillium) on hair scalp after that use Mintop Forte 5% at night only (1ml) 2 times a day & take one tablet of Finpecia every night. So I’m pursuing it since 20 days. I’m not applying any oil while taking the medication, so my hair become rough, dry & without any shine.

Last couple of days i am watching lot of dandruff has built uo on my hair scalp which was not my hair. I used anti dandruff shampoo but not got any solution. Doctor have not suggest any specific branded shampoo to use my hair. I am really worried about my hair because of lot of dandruff on my hair has grown right now and i am feeling itching every time and hairs are coming during the time of itching for dandruff. And dandruff are easily shown on my hair and come on my nail on time of itching.

So what is the reasons behind of lot of dandruff and how could i remove dandruff or will i use any shampoo for dandruff and what is the name of anti dandruff shampoo? Will i stop the darma roller and cleaner liquid? Will I get my hair back, I mean regrowth will take how much time? Will i continue as per doc prescribe way? Please give me feed back as soon as possible.


AskDocWeb: Itching for dandruff are possible side effect of using Mintop Forte 5%. Mintop does contain alcohol, so may be a problem for those with sensitive skin. You might ask if there is a non-alcohol version of minoxidil available in your area. This is something to discuss with your doctor.

After stopping Mintop
Date: 1/5/2014
Hii 3months am using mintop 5% solution after I stop any problem or hair loss n existing hair?


AskDocWeb: After discontinuing Mintop there may be a temporary increase in the rate at which you lose hair but that is only the new hair that the product stimulated to grow. The rate of hair loss of your existing hair returns to what it was before using the Mintop.

Change in hair texture and dark spot
Date: 1/6/2014
Rough Hair, when applying minoxidil 5% solution after few hours my hair becomes rough, can i use coconut oil after applying this solution? in addition to this i have dark spot under my eyes i guess this is due to the use of minoxidil solution


AskDocWeb: There are reports that coconut oil makes hair very greasy and weighs it down. However, other than that there doesn’t seem to be any problem with using coconut oil after using the minoxidil solution. Remember that the instructions for minoxidil say to allow it to completely dry for 2 to 4 hours after application. Applying any oil before the minoxidil is completely dry is counter to instructions.

10 percent solution
Date: 1/12/2014

Im worried pls suggest 😐 is this product is right for me or i am committing mistek by using minoxidil topical 10% solution usp


AskDocWeb: In the USA the 10 percent version of minoxidil is considered experimental and is not approved for use on human beings. We would not take that risk.
