Propecia and Rogaine are two effective medicines to stop hair loss. Both have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat mild to severe hair loss. Propecia and Rogaine are brand names owned by Merck and Johnson & Johnson for Finasteride and Minoxidil respectively. Here is a brief introduction of both medicines.
Propecia: The generic name of Propecia is finasteride. It is considered the most effective medicine to combat male pattern baldness. It is a prescription oral pill that works by inhibiting the formation of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hair follicles killing hormone. It is a prescription medicine that must be used only after consulting your doctor.
Rogaine: Generic name for Rogaine is Minoxidil. It is a topical solution available over the counter. It is applied to the scalp, focusing on the affected areas only. It has varying degree of effectiveness based upon the strength of the solution you use. Doctors recommend 5% concentration for males and 2% concentration for females. Like other medicines, Rogaine also takes some time to show its effects. Apply the medicine regularly to the scalp for at least six months before forming an opinion about it.
Both these medicines have shown promising results in stopping hair loss and stimulating hair regrowth, but they are losing their users because of their side effects. Listed below are some common side effects and limitations of hair loss medicines that every user must know before even starting the treatment.
If you are seeking a safe and effective way to regrow hair in the bald or balding areas of your scalp, look no further than hair transplant surgery. Surgical hair restoration is not only a safer procedure but it also gives you permanent hair that does not fall out even after being moved to baldness prone areas.
