Minoxidil versus Neofollics

Hair loss is a common problem that affects both men and women. There are many factors that cause hair loss, and thanks to science and technology, there are now effective solutions to combat most hair problems. Although medical science is moving forward and Neofollics and other companies are continuously researching hair loss, general practitioners and pharmacists are often inclined to prescribe traditional medicines. The most well known is Minoxidil.

What is Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is a popular hair loss treatment approved by the IGJ. It comes in liquid or foam form to treat male and female pattern baldness (also known as Androgenetic Alopecia or AGA). Furthermore, it promotes hair growth in people with thinning hair.

Minoxidil is an effective remedy for a large proportion of the people who use it, however many times a satisfactory result is not forthcoming. Minoxidil won't regrow hairs. It is also necessary to use it for a longer period of time. Because Minoxidil has a low user satisfaction, many people quickly drop out. The irritation Minoxidil causes on the skin does not outweigh the benefits.

Minoxidil is not recommended for the age of 18 and younger.

For selective use only

Minoxidil belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators, and the relationship between the opening of the vessels and stimulation of hair growth is its mechanism of action. This medication will not work for you if you have any of the following conditions:

  • You have unexplained hair loss (meaning you don’t have a family history of hair loss)
  • Your hair loss comes on suddenly, or it falls out in strands
  • Your scalp is red, itchy, infected, or painful to the touch
  • Hair loss caused by hair products, chemicals or hair care methods or lifestyle
  • Hair loss caused by another condition (such as thyroid or autoimmune disease), post-pregnancy, nutritional deficiencies, scalp scarring, or medical treatments (such as chemotherapy)

How bad are the drawbacks of minoxidil?

Aside from its selective use, there are several side effects to consider before giving Minoxidil a shot. The most common are scalp irritation (such as burning, stinging or redness at the application site), hair growth in adjacent areas (such as your forehead), or changes in hair texture or color.

As it is a drug, take extra care not to get in your eyes or get absorbed anywhere else on your skin. You should see your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • unwanted facial / body hair
  • dizziness
  • fast / irregular heartbeat
  • pass out
  • chestpain
  • swelling of the hands / feet
  • unusual weight gain
  • fatigue
  • breathing problems, especially when lying down.
