Rogaine Uses

Can Children Use It?

No -- this medication is not approved for use in people younger than 18 years of age. It has not been adequately studied in children.

Can Older Adults Use It?

Yes -- older adults can use Rogaine. However, it has not been adequately studied in this age group. Most people in clinical studies were younger than 50 years of age. Additionally, Rogaine seems to work better in younger people and those who have had hair loss for a shorter period of time.

Off-Label Uses for Rogaine

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medication for something other than its approved uses. This is known as an "off-label" use. Rogaine may be used off-label to treat alopecia areata, which is a skin disorder that causes patches of hair loss on the scalp or other areas of the body.
