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 topical at the same time.

How effective is Regaine?

Regaine topical 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.

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.

The 'Patient Information Leaflet' supplied with Regaine Extra Strength (5% minoxidil) must be read before applying treatment.
