Hi — I have a question about Rogaine.

I’ve read that Rogaine can make things worse before better. I’m OK with that risk. But is it possible that Rogaine could make things worse, and then NOT be effective for me, i.e. things would not get better again? So I’d just be left worse off than without using Rogaine at all? Thanks for your time.

Rogaine (minoxidil) is marketed for hair growth — not hair loss. There are occasional reports of increased shedding in the first month of use, but this is just temporary. Many people panic when they see increased shedding and stop the treatment so I suspect it would be a negative outcome if you look at it that way.
