Does anyone here use Rogaine or its generic, minoxidil? I've tried it on and off, but I've never been able to stick with it for more than a week (so I never even get to the shedding phase). I started it again yesterday on my scalp and my eyebrows using the 5% solution. I'm hoping to stick with it for at least 3 months to see if I do get any regrowth.
I was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia and my dermatologist recommended it to me as a treatment. He also prescribed me spironolactone. I plan on eventually getting Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections for my hair loss, but I am out of work at the moment and it is very expensive (also can't get it while COVID-19 is a thing anyway). I also would like to look into Latisse, but it is also too expensive for me to afford every month right now.
What is everyone's experiences with it? Do you prefer the solution or the foam? Did you have issues with the 5% and had to switch to 2%? Any unusual or concerning side effects?
