About Minoxidil 5

Minoxidil was originally developed as a treatment for high blood pressure. During its use it was found to promote hair growth. It is now sold as a topical treatment for baldness in men and women. For male baldness Minoxidil in a 5% solution is applied to the affected area. Women tend to use a 2% solution. In the US this treatment was originally sold solely under the brand name Rogaine. In Europe the name Regaine was used for the same product. The patent on Minoxidil lapsed in 1996 which has led to a wide variety of other manufacturers offering their own Minoxidil 5 treatments. In the UK Minoxidil can not be prescribed by the NHS. People who wish to use the treatment must instead buy their own supply or have it prescribed by a private doctor. The treatment works to a different degree depending on the age and extent of hair loss experienced by the patient. It has been shown to be most effective on young men whose hair loss has occurred within the last five years. It is less effective for people who have experienced loss of hair over an extensive area. Minoxidil has been shown to prevent further hair loss as well as to strengthen and darken existing fine hairs. In some cases it has promoted hair regrowth. To be effective Minoxidil must be applied once or twice daily. The patient must then continue to use the treatment indefinitely. Trials have found that any positive effects on hair loss wear off after between 30 and 60 days if the treatment is stopped.
