About Regaine Extra Strength

Regaine extra strength foam 73ml x 3
  • Regaine is a topical treatment applied to the scalp twice daily.
  • Regaine Extra Strength (5% minoxidil) is available as a foam or scalp solution and is for for men only.
  • Men can use both Propecia / finasteride 1mg tablets and Regaine at the same time.

Regaine foam is not licensed for use in men over 49 years, but Regaine solution is licensed for men up to 65 years. In practice men up to 65 years and even beyond this age can use either one.

How effective is Regaine?

Regaine Extra Strength works for 4 out of 5 men in preventing hair loss and has been shown to regrow hair in 3 out of 5 men. Results may become noticeable in just eight weeks. When Regaine is first started there may be a temporary increase in hair loss for the first 2-6 weeks. This is entirely normal and is good news - it shows hair is shifting from a dormant phase into an active growing phase.

How Regaine works

Regaine topical brings about hair regrowth by stimulating circulation to the scalp. Regaine needs to be applied regularly for at least three month for it to be effective. Regaine is safe for long term use. If Regaine is stopped hair growth which took place during treatment will be lost.

With Regaine, hair becomes fuller and thicker, with 2 out of 3 users showing regrowth of hair at 8 months. In user surveys 80% reported a slowing or stopping of hair loss.

Read more information on the Pharmacological Properties of Regaine and Minoxidil, Regaine's active ingredient.

Side effects and cautions

  • You may notice a temporary increase in hair loss in the first 2-6 weeks. This is entirely normal.
  • Regaine occasionally causes skin irritation that usually resolves when the treatment is stopped.
  • Very little of the active ingredient, minoxidil, is absorbed into the circulation and therefore general side effects are not expected. You should stop using Regaine and see a doctor if hypotension (low blood pressure) is detected or if you experience chest pain, rapid heartbeat, faintness or dizziness, sudden unexplained weight gain, swollen hands or feet or persistent redness.
  • People with known heart disease should contact their regular doctor before using Regaine Extra Strength for men.
  • Very occasionally Regaine may cause unwanted hair growth in areas where it is applied regularly by accident. Follow instructions about use.

Alternative/complementary treatment

Propecia (finasteride 1mg) tablets are the only other proven effective hair loss treatment. Propecia is a daily tablet usually taken long term. Men can use Regaine and Propecia at the same time.

Regaine Extra strength solution for men Minoxidil

Against all expectations, when combined with Finasteride 1mg it seems to work!. Results are by no means instantaneous and progress is slow, but there's definitely progress.
