Hello. I want o try using Regaine (called Rogaine in the USA) for hair thinning around the front and temples. I have read it’s not intended for men over 50 and I am 54. I am otherwise fit and healthy but could it harm me?

Rogaine / Regaine / minoxidil does not work well (and is not labeled for use) in the front and temple areas. It is mainly for treating the top crown.

There is no age limit I am aware of, though the medication does reportedly work best in men under 40 with recent hair loss. As with any medication (prescription or otherwise), read the directions included with it or talk to your doctor.
