Rogaine Foam

If you are looking for an over-the-counter (OTC) product to help regrow your hair, you may be thinking of trying Rogaine® (minoxidil). This nonprescription medicine is specifically used to treat male and female pattern hair loss. There are two forms of Rogaine available -- a liquid solution and a foam. Rogaine also comes in two strengths -- 2% formulations for men and women, and a 5% formulation for men only.
 
If you are considering the Rogaine foam, it is important to know that this version of the medicine is only available in the 5% strength and should only be used by men. The 5% formulation of this product is more likely to cause unwanted facial hair growth.
 
Although most people tolerate this product well, Rogaine is not suitable for everyone. Possible side effects of the medication include a dry, itchy, and flaky scalp. Also, you may not be able to safely use this medicine if you have problems with your heart or certain allergies.
