i have stopped use of minoxidil after 1 months so how can i remove this effect permanently by shaving my hairs ….?? coz new hairs which is grown by it are lossing in night….


AskDocWeb: After reading your post we are wondering what side effect you are referring to. New hair growth is known to fall out when the product is discontinued. That is to be expected.

After discontinuing
Date: 10/22/2014
I am 21 years old, I started using mintop forte 5% 10days ago.. my question is that if this product helps to regrow my hair, then what will happen when I will discontinue mintop forte 5%? Will my hair fall again which was grown with the help of this product?


AskDocWeb: Yes, that is why it is called a “treatment” rather than a “cure” for hair loss.

Hi, My age is 27, recently I consulted a dermatologist for hair fall problem, he was given FINASTERIDE 1mg, and minoxidil 5%, KZ lotion. I red some reviews about FINASTERIDE, on most of the reviews they are facing a problem(decreasing sperm count and sexual drive). I am in dilemma!! Please give me your suggestion. and is it true or false news??


AskDocWeb: While at least some men have those problems with finasteride, as you can see by all the

, minoxidil has a much better track record.

Hair loss treatments
Date: 11/6/2014
minoxidile topical solution5%. sir i used it 2.5 years ago for 8-10 months with finpecia and follihair tablets. i got good results after this. i regained my hair with good thickness. but as soon as i stopped treatment after 5-6 month hair fall started again & returned back to same (worse than before) condition. so again i visited same dermatalogist. he gave me same medicine and oil with mildy shapoo and said that its heridity hair loss. and took treatment for longer period . may be permanent. so should i continue for lifetime. now my age is 23


AskDocWeb: All hair loss treatments that work need to be used daily, continuously if you want to keep the benefits they provide. As you have discovered when you stop using them you lose those benefits.

AskDocWeb: It is possible that you may not have a hair loss problem. The average amount of hair loss per day ranges from 50 to 150 hairs. For most people their scalp produces enough new hair to more than compensate for the normal loss.

It appears that MX5 is another minoxidil product and possible side effects are listed here.
